1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (440 down and 60 to go)
I had a hard time fitting in my walks this week due to illness and general busyness, so I only got in 7 miles. Right now I am on pace to finish at exactly 500 miles this year, but that does not account for bad weather and sickness, so I hope to give myself a little bit of a cushion and get in 12 miles this week.
2. Read two non-fiction books each month Accomplished
I started reading Stephen King’s On Writing this week. I chose this book for two reasons:
#1. I have never read a book by Stephen King because I hate horror books. **I thought this could be a way I could enjoy his writing.
#2. I am currently working on a mystery novel and this book comes highly recommended by many authors, as a great behind the scenes look at an author’s life. Plus, this book is basically an autobiographical take on how King wrote each of his best selling novels and is chockful of really neat facts that I did not know. For example, King really did not like his main character in Carrie and had to have his wife give input into the psyches of high school girls to get the book finished. I also did not know that he was a teacher, who only wrote on the side at first, had struggles with addiction for most of his life, and has a deep love for his wife and children.
