    FebNoWriMo 2019 - Hold On

    In the coldest February, as in every other month in every other year,
    the best thing to hold on to in this world is each other.
    - Linda Ellerbee

    Hello, everyone, and welcome to the February version of our monthly goals thread!

    For those new to the thread, many of us participate in the annual NaNoWriMo festivities as well as the twice-yearly Camp NaNo - but that's not a prerequisite to join in. All are welcome to state their goals for the month: writing goals, reading goals, personal goals of all kinds. The writer's road can be a lonely one, but we're here to encourage, commiserate and cheer.

    I'll start us off with my goals. I had a very successful January (after months of falling short) by making my goals small daily/weekly bites instead of giant over-arching ones. I'm feeling pretty good about that and will continue the pattern in February. My first two goals are unresolved ones from last month - the ball in each case is in others' courts at present, but I'm hoping there'll be some action soon so I can move forward on getting my series back out in circulation.

    I'm doing a little something extra this month: participating in InCoWriMo, something that our fearless AW Admin started a thread about. Thanks to social media, it's easy to blast our thoughts and opinions out to the world at large, but making one-on-one, personal contact seems to be a dying art. I'd like to get more of that going from my end, at least - plus I think it'll be fun.

    How about you? What are your plans for February?
