“Aim higher in case you fall short.” ― Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

I'm posting my goals for 2013 a few days earlier since on New Years Day I want to hit the ground running on achieving them.

The quote from Suzanne Collins is a good one. I didn't reach all my goals for 2012. In writing I reached 75% of them. Weight wise - um not so much - but I am more fit - hitting the gym to 3 to 4 times a week (until November that is - sigh).

Ok - so onto 2013.

Finish getting the audiobook version of Love By Design up on Audible and iTunes.
Then get Going For It (Fantasy Football - Season 2) available on audio as well.
Start and finish Kiss Shot - (Fantasy Football - Season 3)
Start and finish Quarterback Sneak - (Fantasy Football - Season 4)
Plot out my spiritual/inspiration novel.
Plot out my Fantasy novella series.

Get back to my 3 to 4 day gym schedule
Eat healthier 
I'm doing this all because I want to FEEL better.

So there it is my goals for 2013. Do you think I can do it?
What are your goals?

One more quote... 
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” 
 Louisa May Alcott

Katarina Witt, winner of 2 Olympic gold medals in ice skating, is up next in my Quotes By Famous Women series.

Almost nothing is presented to you on a silver platter. You have to really work for it. Katarina Witt

I can't say, 'It doesn't matter if you win or lose.' It's not true. You go in to win. Katarina Witt

I was an athlete. And I proved I didn't win just because I was pretty. I was good, too. Katarina Witt

I'm the sort of person who needs a big mountain in front of me to climb. Katarina Witt

Six Sentence Sunday - 12/16/12

This is from my short story Real Men Don't Drink Appletini which is part of the Martini Madness Anthology available now.

Navy SEAL Grady O’Flynn wasn’t often knocked back on his heels but the bombshell in front of him knocked him back and rocked his world. She reminded him of a movie starlet from the Forties. All curves. All sass. And those baby blues? Man, they nearly had him babbling like an infant.

The part of Ryan Terell will be played by....

With that 'other' Playing For Keeps out in theaters with the sexy Gerald Butler I thought I should have my pick ready for when 'MY' Playing For Keeps is ever made into a movie.

Who plays sexy football player Ryan Terell?   Joe Manganiello.

Is there anyone else you think I should consider?

“It is not sacrifice if you love what you're doing.” Mia Hamm

 It occurred to me that I never featured a female athlete in my series of Quotes of Famous Women. Hmmm...odd for someone who played basketball in high school and was 15 when Title IX passed.                        

So here are some quotes from Mia Hamm.

“Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.” Mia Hamm

“I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.” Mia Hamm

"There are always new, grander challenges to confront, and a true winner will embrace each one.” Mia Hamm

"The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.” Mia Hamm
