Goal-Setting

    I am kind of a crappy goal setter, and arguably worse at keeping them. But I really want to make it to Giant Squid on Squidoo this month (I've been hovering on the edge forever) and am thinking that maybe we could start a sort of support group for lousy goal keepers like me to encourage each other to stick to them. Any kind of goal accepted, though all of mine happen to be writing related. I've found that even just telling other people about a goal makes it more likely to be kept.

    So, my goals for June:

    - at least 50 high quality lenses (currently I have 46, a few of which need a little freshening)
    - at least 50 high quality hubs (currently I have 40, most of which I'm pretty pleased with)
    - at least 1000 words of femslash, because I've never tried it and I promised a friend I would
