The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth


Yesterday I actually set some goals and followed through! Yay me! I managed to do something most people do everyday. Woohoo! Anyway, the trick is to do that every single day. If I could accomplish every goal on my list on a daily basis, I know that I could pretty much do anything I wanted to. It just takes time and focus and dedication. I started small hoping to build from there. Here was my list of goals:

* Write 500 words Minimum in my current short story.
* Read at least 2 chapters of research.
* Work on a jewelry project (earrings)

I realize that this is an extremely modest goal list, but I've decided that creating a huge list of amazing things only turns out to be overwhelming and leads to the inevitable disappointment and self-loathing. Instead, I am going to go with small until I can work my way up to big. Here is what I actually accomplished from my list:
* Wrote 527 words in my current short story.
* Read 30 pages of research.
* Made five new sets of earrings.

Here is a close-up of the earrings. They are not perfect, but I think they turned out pretty cute. Today's goals are very similar as far as the writing and the research. I also want to work on a craft project today. I think it's going to have something to do with sewing today. I was thinking maybe of sewing a small decorative pillow cover and then adding some beads to it. We'll see.
