Goals Update 2016 #6 Clare

You guys. I’ve fallen off the wagon it’s only the of February and I feel like I’ve slowly become unfocused on Ev. Ry. Thing. Ugh. (I’m not looking for pity, in fact it’s taking a lot for me to write this because I feel I’m failing you readers. But in every hero’s journey…and RomCom… someone always takes a divergent path into trouble. So…here I am. 

I thought about doing push-ups. I blame my sickness…but I cough maybe 5 times a day…so I’m not sick enough not to work out. (Charlie Brown type of head to the table with a growl of self-disgust and frustration as my head falls). 

Although I signed up to be on a Cycle for Survival team to help raise money to cure rare cancers….

Organizing/ Cleaning:

I sat on my bed looking at the pile that I started the year looking at that made me “inspired” to organize. The pile, still there, maybe got bigger. 

I also looked at my stuffed drawers of clothing, knowing that about half of the items in EVERY drawer I don’t wear. I thought about clearing stuff out.

I got discouraged and left my room and picked up a book. 


Not only did I not write anything down this week, but I went on a legging and tunic shopping spree-this made the full drawer issue even worse. 


Wrote emails to my cover artist and my copy editor…both are backed up. Maybe it’s not just me in a slump/packed life. 


Went out to dinner with a friend who told me I needed to get an agent. I said I was trying. He said: yeah, but you need to get one. Yeah. Yup. Great. I’ll just do that.

  1. Love this! It’s real. It’s life. Goals are messy because life is unpredictable and sometimes, you just need to shop for new leggings 🙂 You haven’t failed anyone. If anything, we’re all reminded that life doesn’t perfectly go anyone’s way. That’s part of the charm.
