Still rolling right along with my goals. Writing out a daily to do list is really helping me. Love being able to cross items off the list. Even if I don’t get to everything. Still feels like I’m accomplishing something. And it helps keep me on track.
Be finished reading through Guarding the Heart(by 4/30)
Finished this on Friday(4/27).
Got the sections marked in the first 2 chapters rewritten on Monday. These were mostly minor changes. So, it wasn’t too difficult. Ended up losing a total of 4 words between deleting and adding. And on Tuesday I got through the next two chapters. A lot more cutting here. I cut about 150 words from chapter 4. For the sections I’ve gone through so far, I’ve lost a total of 101 words. I know I’ll be adding more words in and cutting other ones, so I don’t know what this final total will look like.
Have through at least chapter 12 of Slow Revenge put into Storybook
I had through chapter 15 done by lunchtime Tuesday. Should have this completely done by Friday, then I can start adding the scenes into Scrivener. And Tuesday afternoon, I got the scenes for three more chapters put in. So, I’m up to chapter 18 now.
Write at least 1 more flash fiction piece
I wrote another one on Friday, and also one on Monday. Then, I signed up for the Story a Day in May challenge. I wrote my first story Tuesday morning, one that was just a little over 200 words. I think that may be my shortest one yet. And another one this morning. This one was a little longer, just over 400 words. I also set up a page on here as a place for these stories. Some of them will likely make it into my Short Tuesday posts as well.
Keep up to date with blog posts and comments
I have posted all of my scheduled days except for last Thursday. And that’s okay. I’ll leave that one open for if I have anything to post that doesn’t fit into any of the other days’ categories. That’s why it’s random. And I’ve been doing a better job of keeping up with the comments.
Be 50% through Sin(or have chosen a different one to read)
I finished reading it over the weekend. Still struggled with it but decided to push through and see if there was a story under all the rambling. I’ll just say that I was glad to be done with it. I guess it just wasn’t the story for me. I started reading another one, then realized it was actually the third book in the series, so set it aside until I can read the first two. Then I moved on to Nothing Stays in Vegas by Elana Aitken. Monday night, I stayed up about an hour later than I had planned to because I didn’t want to put it down. And last night, I was up until almost 11, but I finished it. I really enjoyed it. Now, I’m onto Seeds of Discovery by Breeana Puttroff. Haven’t actually started reading it, just opened it on my Kindle app.
Goals for next Check-in:
- Have rewrites through Chapter 12 done.
- Have the rest of Slow Revenge put into Storybook and start adding scene to Scrivener.
- Keep up with Story a Day goal.
- Keep up to date on reading blogs and replying to comments
- Be 25% through Seeds of Discovery
How has everyone else done over the last week? do you have techniques that help you meet your goals?
