Friday Recommends – It’s All About Holly

Holly Jahangiri (The real one, not the character in my FREE STORY “By the Book“) has been posting on a new “Surviving the Blog” blog called The Next Goal – Leapfrogging Through Life’s Challenges. It’s a motivational site, but it doesn’t just try to juice you up, it offers techniques to help you analyze what you want and work out ways to, as Garrison Keillor says, “get up and do what needs to be done”.

8 Tips to Get in Fighting Shape is a good short-list for preparing yourself physically (not really fighting) for a life challenge you see looming.

Make All Your Goals SMART Goals gives you a five-part analysis of setting achievable goals that can be aimed for and won.

One of These Days, I’m Going to Write a Book is a post on excuses for not writing a book. INNOCENTS AND DEMONS is the result of her blowing away those excuses. It’s also a love song to National Novel Writing Month.

Good Goals Gone Bad explores the toxic side of goals that don’t include a human component: “do this while maintaining my integrity and relationships” is the way to go.

That’s just a sample of Holly’s posts. Her team mates have written worthy posts as well, but Holly is MY one. I recommend her highly.

Oh, and she just posted this on using QR codes to promote your book.

WRITING PROMPT: Write a character who suddenly realizes he or she has lost sight of important factors in his/her life in pursuit of a highly worthy goal.

Friday Recommends – It’s All About Holly — 7 Comments

  1. ::laughing:: Um, important factors like finishing an interview with HERSELF? No, but I did get lost among the stacks momentarily. And then I fell asleep with a good book. (Wait, really, that did NOT come out right… or did it?)

    I do not deserve my friends. But they give me cake and wrap me in purple feather boas anyway, and I love them for it. Said interview will be delivered as soon as the transporter thingy can beam me back. For now, I’d best stop using this – what’d they call it? “Unauthorized communications device”?

    Whoa – ‘scuse me, someone’s calling “Breakfast” and the cake’s got my name on it. Again!
