Sunday Check-In 10/23

This week has been mostly about just making forward progress, and I have managed to do that. I also decided this week that I was going to get back to typing on the computer instead of writing everything out. Computer is still not fixed but the problem is more of a nuisance than an actual performance issue, so I can still use it. On Thursday I got everything I had written typed up, so I’m now back to working on the computer. Didn’t really do much yesterday because we were at a funeral most of the day for my husband’s great-aunt.

WIP: added 1743 words for the week. Now, that I’m back to the computer I’m going to raise my goal to 500 words a day or 2500 a week(since I usually only write on weekdays). My daughter doesn’t have school on Monday though, and since her immune system seems to have great timing, she seems to have croup again. So, I know I may not get too much writing done, and that’s okay.

Outline: finished step 4 & step 5. Got started on step 6. I should have step 6 finished by Wednesday and hopefully the rest done by next Sunday. I may not get all the scenes figured out, but as long as I have the first several chapters I should be good to go from there.

Blogging: Got Wednesday & Friday’s posts up. After I’m done with this check-in, I’m going to try to get Mondays written up and scheduled to post in the morning.

Exercise: Worked out 4 days last week(Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri). According to my schedule, I should work out again today but it hasn’t happened yet. So, I’ll probably get back to it tomorrow.

I have decided to scratch my flash fiction goal. I haven’t been able to get to it lately, and I’m just going to concentrate on the longer fiction for right now.

  1. Good job Fallon! Are you using a particular system to outline? Are these your steps of something you’ve picked up elsewhere?

  2. Keep on truckin’ Fallon! You’re doing great!

  3. Sounds like you got a lot accomplished, despite the computer challenges. Keep up the good work!

  4. Sounds like a productive week, keep it up!

  5. Seconding Yolanda’s question – what steps are you using to outline? I’m curious! I love outlining, but tend to just sketch up some ideas. Does this make me a pantser outliner?!

    Hope your family is doing okay despite your loss!

    Best of luck in the coming week with all your writing goals.

  6. Congratulations on meeting your goals! Sounds like you’re doing great – keep on trucking!

  7. Great forward progress! and you managed to exercize too! Awesome. I walked around the soccer fields while my kids were playing, but other than that I was on my but working. Oh, well.
