Highly-Recommending The Storymistress's goal-setting forum...

Why do I believe that The StoryMistress is deserving of this Awardicon for her forum?

Because, for me, it's just what the doctor ordered, and I believe that many other people would find that participating in this to be very useful -- and several people already have.

Below, find a copy of a Public Review I wrote about it that pretty much says it all.

!!! *Shock2*Tonight, I lost my virginity*Shock2* !!!

Hey! It's not what you think!

It's not "THAT" kind of losing my virginity.

This was simply my first time to participate in this neat little exercise:

Weekly Goals  (13+)
Motivate yourself to conquer your goals this week! Post on Monday; update us on Friday!
#1949474 by The StoryMistress

Already, I can see that it's going to be a real challenge for me to finish the 12 goals that I put down that I'd be meeting -- why, I even put down the wrong starting date.

Monday wasn't May 28. It was May 29 -- that's 29 as in the same number associated with 29th_Candidate (Remember that handle from the Glory Days of Epinions and why a certain hot guy called himself that?).

Furthermore, I began writing this review before midnight last night. Had I started writing it this morning, I would have started out by reporting that I lost my virginity "Last night" instead of "Tonight" ...But I won't be changing this, as I not only want to keep things authentic but, also, it probably wouldn't center as well on the page.

Obviously, I'm one of the people who could use a weekly goal-setting challenge like this one -- especially, now when I'm in the process of playing a lot of catch-up and can barely decide what I want to do first.

Since this is my first time at doing this, I'm going to share just what I wrote there as part of this review.

This truly IS a great motivator -- at least, it seems to be right now -- and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get fit/keep fit when it comes to meeting effective communication goals.

When sharing your goals, you don't have to do it with an Xtreme-to-the-max kind of flair (Doing this with my own was a personal choice...). Just share your plans in the discussion thread in a clear way on Monday and, then, return on Friday of the same week to let everybody who reads this know how you did.

As with the posting of this review, I've already accomplished 1/12 of #7...

Anyway, here's what I wrote...

Today is:
Monday, May 28, 2017
!!! ALL DAY LONG !!!
"!!! ALL DAY LONG !!!"
has already been going on
for almost the entire day

Having said this...

Let me get right to the point...

Which is:

I'm very serious about meeting several goals this week -- In fact *Right*

I'm so serious that I'm sticking my neck out and am going to list what I'd LIKE to have done by or before 6 p.m. on Friday, June 2, 2017:

(1.) Elle has extended the time for her latest Merit Badge contest another week. At least, that's how it seems at the moment. I want to participate in this and have it finished & posted no later than sometime Wednesday.

(2.) My portfolio better organized -- including a much-better look to the profile section there.

(3.) The newsletter I've been talking about finally coming out when it's supposed to: on Wednesdays and Fridays.

(4.) At least five of my new blogs on which I've been working behind-the-scenes open to public viewing. Some are here, and some are elsewhere.

(5.) Submit at least seven items that aren't blog-entries.

(6.) Start doing prompt-inspired blogging on a regular basis again.

(7.) Do at least 12 public reviews between now and 6 p.m. Friday.

(8.) Enter at least three contests this week.

(9.) This item (last time I checked) has been viewed 75 times, and I want it to have at least twice as many views by Friday, so I'll do my part to get it exposed and see what happens:

Empower Long-Term Abuse Victim  (ASR)
A friend is struggling to put behind her 25 years of emotional abuse and its fallout.
#2116567 by AJ wants U 2 meet The CanMan!

(10.) This is what's supposed to be my daily (or close-enough) non-prompt-inspired blog, so I want the activity in it to be stepped-up considerably over the course of this week:

Begun On My Fourth Sixteenth Birthday  (ASR)
A journal started on Monday, December 12, 2016: The day I turned 64...
#2105415 by AJ wants U 2 meet The CanMan!

(11.) Work on making my sig-blocks more interesting and engaging.

(12.) Build a blog that will get non-members interested in joining WDC.

Anyway, I'm going to be keeping a copy of these goals handy using one of my notepads. Hopefully, Friday will find me sharing the good news that I was able to get everything done...

In short...If you really want some great motivation for getting your ducks in a line, start participating in this forum!!!

Your next chance (as of the writing of this review) will be on Monday, June 5, 2017 -- and, for the foreseeable future, every Monday-thru-Friday after that as well.
