Goals: plans and objectives to achieve by the month and week.


    First Goal of 2019 ACHIEVED!

    After many years of 'intentions to do it" and finally getting to it this year- CHOICES IS ONE.

    The first version was written in 2000 & submitted to my instructor on February 21, 2000) as the piece for assignment 4 with Long Ridge Writers Group (now Institute for Writers).
