My short-term goals for the month include Nanowrimo. I started out just wanting to write to do something for me as a way to force me to focus creative energy, which I admit I don't do nearly often enough. Now, though, as a completely unexpected story starts to take shape (not at all the one I set out to write), I find that I really do want something to come of this. Even if I don't write something commercially viable (I'm working on a young adult novel right now), I at least want to get this story out there. I really am committed to getting that done. My goal is to write something my daughters will read and enjoy. I don't care if it doesn't get beyond them. I just want to be able to finish it, hand it to them and have them honestly enjoy it.
Another goal is to sell this blasted house. In my dream world, I would love to have this house sell in November. Then I could celebrate one last Thanksgiving here (although, sans the husband) as a big going away party and it would probably take just enough time that we could look at moving in December right after the girls' Hebrew school consecration.
And, of course, there's always keeping the kids alive and our world in order. I'd also enjoy saving the world, but I think that will probably be relegated to the "Long-term goal" folder.
