Home of a mother, wife, writer

Sunday Check-In: 1/15

Writing:

Finish Guarding the Heart by the end of January.: doing very good here. Wrote 4896 words this week, which is almost 650 over my goal for the week. I only have 2 more scenes to write to finish this, so I don’t have an actual word count goal for next week. Just to get those last 2 scenes done.

Blog at least 3 times a week.: good here too. got Monday’s post up on time. Struggled to think of something to post on Friday. Until I looked over and saw my son trying to get up on the back of the couch for probably the third or fourth time that day. I definitely have a little monkey on my hands.

Reading:

Read 1 craft book a month.: Still working through the self-editing book. Haven’t made a lot of progress but working on that this weekend.

Read 1 fiction book a week.: Finished reading Drawing Free on Friday. I had trouble putting it down once I got into it(this is a common occurrence with me, by the way). Didn’t agree with all the decisions the main character made, but could certainly understand the feeling behind them.

Social Media:

Comment on at least 5 blogs a week: failed here. I don’t think I really commented on any.

RT at least 5 articles a week.: I did 3 or 4 this week.

Interact personally with at least 5 people a week on Twitter.: Certainly not 5, but I did with 1 person. And posted a few times myself, which I hadn’t been doing too much of. I think I’m going to change this one to simply interacting with at least one person each week. Sometimes even that can be a struggle for me.

Finish setting up my Facebook page.: Nope. Nothing.

Lifestyle:

Cut out pop at home: Haven’t had any pop at all in the last two weeks. And my husband even bought some, but I haven’t really even wanted any.

Attempt to eat healthier snacks: popcorn is about the healthiest I’ve gotten(although it is air popped at least).

Exercise 4-5 times a week.: Worked out 5 times during the week and took Saturday off. Then, my daughter told me, “Tomorrow we work outing together.” So, I guess I won’t be getting out of it today.

  1. Nice work on the writing progress! Even if you haven’t cut out all junky snacks, getting rid of pop is a good start (since that alone is loaded with fat and sugar). Good luck for this week πŸ™‚

  2. Great jobs on the goals! It’s got to be exciting to be only a few scenes away from finishing. And good luck with the workout today; sometimes, having someone else to do it with makes it all the more fun.

  3. Good work this week! I love how you call it “pop”. That totally points out a certain area of the country. In my neck of the woods, it’s coke. All soda is coke. As in “What kind of coke do you want?” “Dr. Pepper please.” πŸ˜€

    Can you guess where I’m from?

    Good luck finishing the WIP this week!

  4. Exercise goals get easier the more you do them. Now that I’ve been making a commitment to get to the gym, I get really irritable when I miss a day. It’s completely ridiculous. πŸ™‚

    I loooooove getting the end of the draft. Those last scenes are so exciting to write! Congrats and good luck!

  5. Way to go, Fallon! You’re doing great!

  6. nearly there so exciting -writing those last few pages – well done

    all the best for coming week

  7. You’ve done a great job, this week, and I love how your daughter’s keeping on track with your exercise goals! It always helps to have someone else around prodding us in case we get a little lazy. πŸ˜€

    Have a wonderful week!

  8. Sounds like you have had a very productive week (don’t worry too much about social media, your WIP is the most important thing; once thats completed you can re-look into it). It’s fab that your daughter are son are helping you with goals (be it deliberate or accidently). Hope the rest of the week goes well for you. πŸ™‚
