  1. Formidable writing goals — as always, well organized and specific. Using ‘just jot it’ sounds productive. I’m not sure how to listen to audio books. Every time I try, my mind drifts. But the scope of your goals (writing-related and personal) sets a clear direction. May the round go well for you!

    • Thanks. I did like the Just Jot It challenge. This was the second year I participated in it.
      I mostly listen to audio books when I’m doing chores and other things that don’t need my complete attention.

  2. Your goals are concise, and I know you’ll get to most, if not all, of them. I’ll be around to read some of your A-Z entries…once the dust of new month and new goals settles some. =D
