I'm Moving!

Well, not exactly.

I'm moving my blogging day from Thursday to Monday. Thursday seems to come way too fast.

So those of you who visit Checkerboard Squares, I will be here on Monday. Those of you at Paper and Parchment, I will see you still on Thursdays, but I will be posting the same thing I posted on Checkerboard Squares from Monday (just so we're okay on that).

I'm thinking about only checking out other's blogs three days a week. (Because let's face it, I'm a procrastinator when it comes to writing and I need all the time I can get!)

On a different won't believe this. Really. Sit down. 

I solved the Rubik Cube! I did! Woohoo! *hands up in the air running around like a kid*

Thank You Photobucket
I actually did it twice...okay...*blushes* Three times!  (It's all in the algorithms or math-like stuff.)

But the thing is - I did it! If I can do that, I can do anything right? Right? (okay, maybe I still can't  open my eyes when I'm on a Ferris wheel. *shrugging shoulders*)

The thing is...(I really will get to the point here) If I can sit down and do that, I can accomplish my writing goals. And so can you. So tell me, what are they? What is going to happen with your writing this year? Are you writing one book, two? Querying? Revising? Spill the beans, what's happening in your writing world? 

See you Monday!

Congratulations on the Rubik cube! Woohoo! My writing goal is to finish the first draft, then outline second novel, and then re-write the first, having three chapters ready for a critique at a writer's conference in June. Still a long way away from publication, but baby steps eventually cross the finish line!

Sara B. Larson said...

Way to go! That's awesome x3. ;) With everything that's happened in the last couple of weeks, I still haven't written down my goals. We're hoping to do it tonight. I'd sure love to get a publishing deal, but that one isn't too much in my control.

Jamie Burch said...

Woohoo! It's a wonderful feeling to accomplish something and then realize you can do anything. Love that!

I'm still avoiding my revisions, but will get back to them and finally finish this book. My plan is to work on my query package and get this book out there. Yikes!

I'm switching my blogging day to Monday and some Wednesdays. I'll look for you then!

LisAway said...

Wow! If you can solve one of those you are clearly a genius. Just the thought of trying gives me an ulcer. My kids can get one side a solid color but even that is more than I dare try.

So yes, you can surely do ANYTHING!


Wow, the Rubic's Cube?! That's AMAZING! Really. I'm in awe of you now. :)

Patti said...

You are now my hero. I've never been able to solve it, if you don't count taking it apart and putting it back together.

I don't think you need to visit blogs everyday, 3 days is perfectly fine.

Angie said...

Yay! You solved the Rubik's cube! I'm so proud. =) I will look forward to your posts whenever they are posted.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

I've had to change my posting days as well, so I understand the need to switch.

Good for you conquering the cube. Now onward and upward with your writing. :)

Jen Daiker said...

I now blog three days a week and commenting and blogging has become a lot less stressful!

I still need to come up with two more posts for next week, but it's better than coming up with FOUR!

Indigo said...

I'll be here Monday! The last few months haven't left me much time to visit. I've missed your post. As for this year, I plan to get the revisions done on my current WIP and start querying. Brave plans I know, but I have a lot of time to make up for. (Hugs)Indigo

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Wow! That's awesome! Congratulations, Carolyn!

I know you can reach your writing goals! (I think I might be over-using exclamations today???)

I just posted about what I am going (yes going) to do in the next month. :) I'm going to be productive.

David P. King said...

That sounds like an easy move. Now I'll know where to find you. Me? I'm working on a revision. Coming along nicely. :)

Jolene Perry said...

Writing goals are all of the above, lol.
Well, not querying. But everything else.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Shut the front door! I can't believe you solved that thing!
I'm mega impressed!

Kate Coursey said...

Jealous. I wish I could solve a Rubiks cube.

My goal is to finish the first draft of my next book by February! It's ambitious, especially as a full-time college student with a job, but I'm going to do my best. It will help take my mind off the impending submission process to editors (!!!).

Good luck with your goals!!!

Nichole Giles said...

Carolyn! Good for you, changing your schedule to make life easier, and solving the cube? Dude, I am so proud. That is not something I can do. (But I ROCK at Tetris.)

I just finished another round of edits on one book and am going to send it to Betas this week. Then start edits on another book. I also plan to draft another and hopefully get to editing it before the end of the year. Hope I can do it all!

Good luck to us both, right?

Shelley Sly said...

Congrats on the Rubik cube! I've always wished I could do that.

I'm currently querying one book, writing another, and going to edit yet another sometime soon. I'm keeping myself accountable with a calendar, forcing myself to write for at least an hour a day (but hopefully more.) We'll see.

Good luck with your writing!

Al said...

I am writing book 3 at the moment. I'm taking a break from book 2 while a couple of readers have it.

I would end up throwing the cube across the room and stomping on it - laughing! puzzles hurt my pea-headed brain -unngh!

Let's see - last book in the grces trilogy is with editor -we have a title and a draft book cover! Now I need to work on fifth novel - lawd! lawd! Rose & Thorn winter issue just went live-yay! Y'all stop by!


Susan R. Mills said...

Mondays seem to be good days to blog. Congrats on the Rubik Cube. I've never been able to solve it. As for my writing goals this year, I plan on completing a project from start to finish. Considering I usually spend months rewriting and revising, I better get crackin'!

Glad you're not moving as in locations in real life. I would have fainted if I found out via the internet! And I would have cried. Lots.

Congrats on the rubiks cube!
