It’s Sunday once again, and once again, I’m leaving writing my check-in until after 8:30pm. I’ve had a busy day, though, so I feel I’m actually justified this time. Here’s my goals break-down for this week:
- Write at least two pages in notebook or 200 words on the laptop every week day. Consolidate this on the weekends.
I did this every day except Tuesday. Actually, on Monday and Wednesday, I spent 20 minutes editing the first draft of Operation: Sugarplum. Then on Thursday I went back to more plotting on Worlds Apart. For the first time ever, I’m actually managing a detailed outline before I start writing. And every now a and then I get a little niggle to start writing, but I am resisting until I finish the full outline. I did do a little bit yesterday, so I sort of caught up for not writing Tuesday.
Do we want some end-of-month stats? Yes, we do. At the end of October, I had written 4003 words. Most of that was on Operation: Sugarplum. At time of writing, I have written 6967 words, plus whatever I wrote yesterday (it’s not typed up yet), so let’s say 7050-ish, because I didn’t write a huge amount yesterday.
- Write one book review a week and queue them up on the blog.
I wrote a review for The Knife of Never Letting Go. It’ll go up in week or two. I don’t remember exactly when I scheduled it for.
- Send three Postcrossing cards per week/maintain maximum total cards traveling.
I have once again let a week go by without writing any. Maybe this week…
- Ride bike to work or walk into the city after work at least three times a week.
What do you know, I actually managed this! For about the first time in two ROW80 rounds, I think! I even did it four times.
I’ll leave this here, with a quick link to the ROW80 website for those unfamiliar. A Round of Words in 80 Days is a writing challenge wherein you set your own goals, and check in each week with other bloggers to keep yourself accountable. Check it out!
