So the future:-

My big fat hairy audacious goal is to make enough money to turn my writing from a hobby to a job.

My aspirational yet challenging goal is to break even so that the work supports itself. (Pay back the netbook cost, the .com blog cost, the printing, the editing, etc.)

My achievable goal is that people read what I’ve written and I’ll include friends and family in this (they count right?).

So I am making a pledge:_

1. I will write something every day.

 (Even if it is only to a few words to say “Bugger, i haven’t written anything today” on this blog.)

2. I will offer moral support to others who want to write and need a bit of light relief from the blank page.

(If you comment or post here. I will reply!)

3. I will post stories, ideas, suggestions and any other generally good advice I can find from my research.

(I will give some of these a humorous sarcastic british humour twist where possible)

So that’s all reader. That’s what “I” and this Blog are all about. I hope you come with me on the journey and I look forward to joining you on yours!

“Life’s to short to ask what if?”

  1. Hi there, I just pop over to say BIG thanks for visiting my blog. I am very glad you did – so I can find you! Your blog is great and I really like your writings; the tone, the ideas, the expressions. And I see that we have been blogging for about the same length of time (I started on 20 May -:)). So let’s share some mutual support!

    • That sounds like a great idea and I really liked your blog! As a fellow newbie at the blogging game, I can totally relate to your musings on how confusing it can be and the sheer weight of information that you have to absorb. Thanks for visiting and following.

  2. Thank you for liking my post. I started my blog in January and am still learning. Learning is “brain food”. all the best. Renee 🙂

  3. Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I do really appreciate the encouragement. I’ll keep you posted on my progress and I’ll keep checking back on yours. 😀

  4. Good afternoon….Well, it is over here anyway..(afternoon that is..). I have noticed you have stopped by my blog a couple of times. I want to thank you for that.!! I certainly appreciate it when anyone takes a few minutes to look over what I have to say. I have read several of your blog entries. It is obvious that you enjoy writing, as do I. Problems occur for me when I stop writing and start reading (like your blog.!!!). I can’t seem to get back to what I was doing…Thanks again.!
    Be well….

    • Hi Howard, thanks very much for commenting. I really enjoyed your bio and it sounds as if you are now doing what you love. WRITING! I also especially liked your quote about choice. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I love as humorous, sarcastic British twist. We Yanks do, you see…Thank you for stopping by my cyber place, and I will stop back here at yours. You have a coolio tone to your blog… which goes back to that first sentence, I expect…holy crap, I’ve written a mini story!! hehe 🙂

  6. You have been recommended highly so I could not resist stopping by. I like that you have set goals for your blog. I just started in with no rules. I know I didn’t start with the idea, “I want to write.” I don’t. Most of my blog….to me anyway….is just about visiting with others. I try to visit in my blog and try to visit in my comments.

    I read where you lost a friend who was blogging. I know what it is to have a fellow computer-er just up and disappear. It really takes a part of you away. Your blog is friendly. I know there are plenty to continue with you.

  7. Good evening from the Yank’s land.!! Had to tell you again how much I enjoy your blog. I am sending an award your way. The One Lovely Blog Award. You may already have one (or more..) but that is okay….You need another one.!! I spend WAY too much time on your blog.!! http://wp.me/p2xFBT-4q
    Be well…

  8. Hi,
    This is just to let you know that I have nominated you for the beautiful blogger award. If you chose to participate, (I understand completely if you do not wish to), please pick the award and rules from here: http://wp.me/p2v1s2-ph
    Best of Luck!

  9. You can do anything that you make up your mind to do!
    I have been writing since the age of ten, and don’t know WHY in the WORLD that I waited until my late forties to get a computer, and start making a living from home, as a freelance writer-for-hire! Good Luck as You pursue your “big, fat, hairy, audacious goal!”

  10. I found your blog via Daniela at the LanternPost. I like your goals on this page (similar to my own) and I’ve enjoyed exploring some of your older posts. I’m glad I’ve found your blog and will definitely be back to read more.

    • Hi Janet, thank you for the kind words. I’ll be sure to check out your blog too. Goals are important, but I think it’s also worth giving yourself some flexibility. Thanks for saying HI.

  11. Like many others above, I want to thank you for your visit to my site, and likewise I commend and concur with your goals. This won’t be my only comment; come the weekend when I actually have a sliver of time I will read and comment, I’m definitely coming back to do so!

    • I loved reading about your work as a teacher! I think people in your profession should wear capes. I was lucky enough to have had some super-hero teachers. I probably wouldn’t be writing again 23 years on if it wasn’t for my English Lit teacher – MIss Rowen.

  12. Hey, thanks for liking my 6 Sunday post. Something a bit different.
    Reading your about page I feel we have many things in common with out writing endeavours. I write this after I read your latest post about never being an Indie Author, which also strengthens that idea. Now, to comment on that…
    Cheers! See you round. 🙂

  13. Thanks for the link to my post, it lead me to your blog. I’ll trade your sarcastic British humour for some cutting Canadian comments, so I think that should be close to even. 🙂

  14. Thank you for taking a look at my blog. I have to admit, every bit of support helps in this type of field! (To which I’m sure you’re well aware of.) I really enjoy your blog. After this, I’m definitely selecting “subscribe”!

  15. Hi! I just wanna reciprocate and say thanks for dropping by my blog . It’s nice to just know other people get to read what I write (let alone like it 🙂 ). I like your goal of offering other people who want to write moral support – I’ll definitely be back here to read some more of your posts 🙂

    • Thanks for popping by. I spend far too much time reading blogs because I really enjoy the diferent perspectives offered. Reading others thoughts and musings helps me improve as a writer so you are very welcome.

  16. Thank you for stopping by and liking my post, “who is stopping you?” I will be checking in to see how you are doing with your project and following you to offer the support back. I hope you will visit my blog againg, I can certainly use the support! Good luck and keep at it!

  17. Hi Nice blog and “About”, i do have plans to write a book in some years … will surely take your help .. Thank you for already being there ..
