A Check In of Meh Proportions

Trying to shake off the herd of scapegoats. They’re annoying, eating the shrubbery and trampling the herb garden. I have them corralled for now, but I wish I could find a new home for them. I’d get so much more accomplished.

But since I locked them back in, I am at least back in the race.

Of course, I’m racing at glacier pace, but still. . .Ā  forward is forward, so I’m not going to knock it.

Goal # 1 – Nailing it. Yay! Got a post up in the 10 x 10 – Writers on a Plane – 10 Ways to Amuse Yourself. Not all of it is geared towards travel only, but a plane really is a great place to break through some writing exercises in a unique way. I also got one more post up in Mother of the Year in which my son learns an expensive lesson. Or maybe I did – not quite sure how to process that yet. This means I have 4 days to manage one more post. I can do that.

Sh! Don’t argue.

Goal # 2 – No work yet on ways to have fun with my fancy new domain, but I’m still mulling over all I read. I think I need to make the to self host or not self house decision before I go off half-cocked.

Goal #3 – A few posts on FB and a couple of Tweets – Twitter makes me feel like a moron. What’s this mean, what’s that mean? I am bumbling my way through hashtag hell, but I am trying, so go me. I’m also somewhat intrigued by Pinterest, and think this may be more ‘me’ than Twitter is. I’m shortly off to read Hunter’s well-timed post about just that to learn more. And figure out how to score an invitation.

Goal #4 – Have not even looked at a children’s WIP. Though I will be talking to one of the people I’m considering for the artwork in a few days, so maybe that will spur me on. . .

Goal #5 – Tanking my reading and commenting on blogs. Somehow I managed to find my way into an alternate world consisting of 21 hour days. Damn string theory. If I can just find my way back out I’ll get back to this.

Goal #6 – Edits. Ahem. Moving on. . .

Goal #7 – My weekly short terms. Nothing.Ā  But I still have 4 days. I will again be blaming this alternate univer–OH MY GOD, THE SCAPEGOATS ESCAPED!!!

Goal #8 – Still reading Discovery of Witches for the Bookmark Break challenge and almost done with Alice In Quantumland. Discovery is thick, and Alice is a book on quantum physics theory – no choice by to go slow on those. Going to pick up the pace on my next selections – looking for my next books now. Any suggestions?

Goal #9 – This is a Sunday task, so I’m good here for the moment.

Do the Linky dance.

  1. Ahh not all that meh really! I’m interested in Pinterest too, would be handy for the 50/50 challenge, I had a look earlier apparently now I’m on a waiting list for an invitation – now that’s meh! :/

  2. Three letter words. “Meh” and “Eep” or even “Erp” are all prevalent this week.

    Twitter is one of those things you really either love or don’t. I enjoy it, and it’s been a great way to connect with other writers. But don’t feel like it is something you must do… yes, you must have a presence on the internet. But that doesn’t have to be twitter.

  3. Hee Hee! Love the Scapegoats reference. I am on Pinterest… but am new, so I have no idea (nor do I think I could) how to invite people. And I actually don’t get the whole “invite” thing and think I may actually be a member of a pretentious website!
    But it is fun.

    Meh. <~ love it. And you say it so well! šŸ˜€

  4. Thanks for the shout out, RRW. I’m still leading my own alpaca along. And enjoyed your Writers on a Plane (except for the plane crashing thing) post. Of course, everytime I hear the term ‘on a Plane’ nowadays I immediately think of that classic movie about Snakes.

    I sent you the Pinterest invite yesterday. Don’t spend too long there, though. Just saying…

  6. I got a response/invitation back from Pinterest within a day or so, it’s a little intimidating at first, but once you download the add-in for your web browser, you can pin anything you want! They have an app for the iphone (and I’m assuming others), but with that, as far as I know, you’re limited to re-pinning other people’s stuff..
