2012 Goals

1. Set up proper daily writing schedule (not namby-pamby, good-excuse-to-do-the-laundry, half-hearted plan).

2. Finish writing and editing my memoir (and I mean finish).

3. Get top agent and publisher on board (who will turn afore-mentioned memoir into International best-selling book).

4. Turn afore-mentioned best-selling book into multi-million-dollar Oscar-winning film, starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt and some gorgeous comedy actress (with me on film set at all times to give helpful advice and acting tips to Brad and George).

5. Work out what the hell my blog is about and then create some incredibly clever by-line to describe it.

6. Blog on a regular schedule (and not in slapdash, random, do-it-when-I-fancy about-whatever-I-can-think-of way).

7. Gain many thousands of blog followers to increase 'platform' (and assist in turning said memoir into best-selling book and award-winning film).

8. Comment on other people's blogs regularly (and so ingratiate myself and encourage said thousands of blog followers).

9. Meditate daily (ha!).

10. Lose weight (double ha!).

11. Pay off my debts (so that when I become millionaire from proceeds of best-selling book and award-winning film I will not have creditors crawling out of the woodwork).

12. Read more books  (thus enabling me to get out of bed more easily as massive pile of 'to be read' books next to my bed will diminish).

13. Go to Italy for my 50th (ie. spend all day in yummy Italian restaurants ogling sexy Italian waiters in tight black trousers).

14. Continue spiritual growth and search for true life purpose (which surely must be more than Getting Through Day Without Arguing With Teenager Daughter And Staying Awake Past 10pm).

15. Laugh more.


  1. hahaha good luck with all those goals, your 2012 is going to be packed full of things to do.

  2. Thanks Pat. Gosh, you're a cat that's quick off the bat!

  3. Oooh, I love your goals - I should have gotten more specific like you - Brad and George, yeah that's specific, lol! Good luck with your goals in 2012!

  4. Yep, very specific! Let's just hope they come true. Thanks for stopping by, Lady Gwen. I will come and check out your goals.

  5. Damn but I love your goals!! LOL, good luck with them. Can I tag along to the movie set?

  6. Ha ha Raelyn, everyone wants to do that! As I've said to other friends ... they're mine, all mine!!

  7. Oh, you can have them, I just want to watch the making of a movie :D

  8. I also need to lose weight. I run almost everyday of my life but I eat sooo much food.

  9. Claire, Count on me as one of the thousands who will follow your blog. I LOVE your humor! Also, do count on me to help with acting advice for Brad and George!

  10. Raelyn - phew, got enough competition for B&G already! Ok, you can come and watch.
    BragonDorn - LOL well if you run then you can eat more, surely? Maybe run a bit further and eat a little less?
    Barbara - ditto re humor and my answer is still NO on the B&G front!!

  11. That's a very packed scheduled there!! haha I'm with you on the blogging schedule. It would be nice to have a laid out "blog plan"..but at the same time, isn't part of the fun of a blog to post whenever you want to about random stuff :P Good luck!

  12. Good luck with all your goals! The last one is just awesome. We all need to laugh more.

    I came over from Alex's blog and am your newest follower. Nice to "meet" you!

  13. Little Ms Fun - yes I like ad-hoc blogging but just recently had my blog critiqued and that was one of the things she said needed fixing.
    Nicole - great to meet you too. Good luck with your 1000 target! Amazing.

  14. What an amazing list of Goals, I've joined you blog just to see how many you managed to complete.

    Good Luck and keep on smiling!

  15. Thanks Jarmara - bit scary writing down my goals as now I need to actually DO them!!

  16. I already do 5 miles a day :) If I do more I will have to skip work. The sun just goes down too early here in Ohio.

  17. Wow, 5 miles a day is excellent! You must eat LOADS then if running that far doesn't work!

  18. This is a noble set of goals! I stumbled upon your blog while looking for tips on how to increase my Scribd followers (sad, I know). My blogging world is totally different from yours - I blog about life in Thailand - but I think we share similar writing goals. So good luck to you and all the best for 2012. May it be a prosperous and successful year!

  19. Thanks Ray - did you see my previous blog about Scribd (in October) which gives a few tips for how to start up and increase followers? Or please feel free to drop me an email.

  20. Happy happy New Year to you!! And big big HELLO from me!! What a wonderful post - I loved it! Of course you must be on the set of the filming of your best-selling memoir to give lovely George and Brad some tips and advice. Of course! :-)

    OF COURSE your 2012 is going to be great - your post just bounces optimism and utter amazingness - how can 2012 resist you?!? Take care

  21. Well, Claire, you're a good mile ahead of me - I have not put any goals on paper, though I do have a short list in my head - and one of those is to help you get that memoir written and edited and turned into an international best seller that makes you a mega-millionaire. You've got a great start - keep plugging away and you'll finish it up this year!
