Hooray for Me!

Today's goals are simple:
  1. Write this—Seems straightforward enough and achievable, especially since I've decided to make a list rather than assemble paragraphs.
  2. Slap together a quick book review—Something more profound than “I liked it” would be good (although “I liked it” is an accurate assessment).
  3. Work on the novel.
    1. Clean up yesterday's mess—I don't even know where to start, but then I never know where to start, which is a good place to start.
    2. Move forward with today's mess—You could define a writer as someone who makes a mess and then tries to clean it up, and not be far from the truth.
  4. Edit someone else's article—This is hard for me because an actual person wrote the words and probably loves them more than I do.
  5. Go to the gym—Technically I'm just driving my wife, so this is a gimme; I get to read a book.
  6. Record a podcast—Talk into a microphone and have someone else record it; the hard part is having something interesting to say, which is the hard part of many things in life.
  7. Put bottles of beer in the refrigerator—This is actually homebrew that isn't quite ready but that I want to test as a reference point so I can hopefully learn how to do it better next time.
  8. Watch baseball—I haven't checked the schedule yet, don't know if this is even possible; might watch Star Trek instead, which wouldn't be the worst thing.
Eight goals seems like a lot, but I think I can do it. I'll need to give 110% and catch a few breaks, and possibly indulge in a few more sports clichés, but it's still early... there's plenty of time. And hey, I've just finished the first goal. Hooray for me!
