Monday's Muse~Rebel Writer's Pledge

My inspiration this last week has been coming up with my post for the Rebel Writer’s Pledge. The pledge is the brain child of SA Larsen, writer and all around fabulous lady. It is a way for us writers to declare out goals, cheer each other on, keep hope alive, and keep one another on track. And it’s a blog hop! We have to list our writing/life goals and highlight one to add to the main pledge page. For each writer goal I’m putting a personal goal as well. Here they are:

Rebel Writer Pledge 2012

#1 Writer: I pledge to support my fellow writers and authors as much as possible by buying and reading my author friends’ books and by helping my writer friends on the Monday night #WritersRoad chat. Personal: I pledge to spend as much time with my husband as I do with my writing, and to talk to my sister and mother more often.

#2 Writer: I pledge to meet my deadlines for my press, turning in two more books this year. Personal: I pledge to exercise at least ½ an hour five days a week.

#3 Writer: I pledge to market my buns off but remember that writing has to take precedence. Personal: I pledge to ride my horse more so he gets rid of that fat hump on his neck. Oh yes, I noticed it buddy. (this one is in bold for SA Larsen. It's probably the most important one for me to remember. ;)

The rest of the Rebel Writer’s pledges: Sheri LarsenSamantha VerantKris YankeeApril Plummer,  Carolyn VShannon O’DonnellSusan OloierSharon MayhewLeigh MooreMelissa SugarSophia ChangStina Lindenblat,  DL HammonsRebekah,  Kelly HashwayMargayStephen TrempPK HrezoYelena Casale.

  1. Yay, what wonderful goals! You're such an amazing person and support for all of us! Good luck with all your goals and I'll be cheering you on!

    P.S. just changed all of my goals in my blog post to read "I pledge to". Duh, should have thought of that right away but brain is half functioning today LOL

  2. Heather, these are great goals! Of course I have no doubt you will make them all come true.
    I'm a little unsure of where the blog hop is. Who is doing this. Or, where the main pledge page is. But... for everyone involved, and know the secrets of the pledging... Good luck to you all!!

  3. Great luck with your very worthy goals. I'm not a pledge making kind of fellow. I just silently strive to be better in whatever I am doing today than yesterday. May your dreams come true, Roland

  8. Great goals. Marketing is very time consuming. I need to do more of it though. I tend to let it take a back seat to my writing. It should, but not that far back!

  10. You Go, Rebels! Wow, these are good pledges, Heather, and there's nothing like a community to keep you inspired. (Poor horsie, though, maybe he likes that extra heft to his neck--more to love and a secret source of energy??)

  14. Yikes, I saw that Sheri bolded one goal...I didn't realize we were supposed to. I guess it's time to do a quick post edit. :)

    I love your goals...especially your personal ones. My hubby gets a bit jealous of my internet time.

    Happy Writing!
