Given this was the first week of the year, I think I did pretty well on all the goal fronts! I’ve still got room for improvement, but plenty of time to make it.
This week in writing
My total words written for this week is exactly 5000, taking my grand total to 25k. I’m really happy with this total. I’ve mentioned before that I’d rather take the pace a bit slowly and have less to revise, rather than try to keyboard-smash out a large amount that ultimately get cut anyway. I’ve nearly finished Part 2 of Operation: Sugarplum, then I will need to work out exactly how the climax is going to work out. I’m giving myself about five weeks to finish this draft.
This week in reading
I have already read one book this year, The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood. I’ve since begun The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, which should only take a couple more days to get through.
This week in blogging
I’ve literally just gone through and commented on the WIPpet Wednesday posts for this week. Better late than never, right? I visited a pretty good slew of WWW participants on Wednesday night, and I think most of the comments on mine were people returning the favour, so I didn’t need to do much catch-up there. I’ve returned to book reviewing, and am getting back into the routine with that.
This week in health and fitness
I lost 900g this week! I’m really pleased, especially as I was still polishing off Christmas goodies in the first part of the week. Now to just keep that momentum up for the next few months. I got back to the gym yesterday, attending the first BodyAttack class of the year (still a bit sore from that) and then doing some general cardio today. I did have a bit of an indulgent day today, but as long as I’m good for the rest of the week, I think I’m okay.
Other highlights this week
Today was in theory my writing groups first meet up. It ended up just being me and one other person, but I do enjoy the atmosphere of sitting in a cafe, drinking hot chocoalte and writing. The friend who was there is hoping to make this a proper every-second-Sunday event, which I am totally down for.
That’s it from me for this week. How is your week going?
