Writing Wednesday: Goal Met


Finish Guarding the Heart by the end of January.: Completed! Finished the last scene of the first draft this morning. The final total is 83,376. A little shorter than I originally planned for, but I tend to under write, instead of over write, so I’ll probably add more in as I read over it. I’m just happy to be finished, even though it was a little difficult to say goodbye to these characters.

Blog at least 3 times a week.: On track here.


Read 1 craft book a month.: Read a bit more of Self Editing for Fiction Writers. Taking my time with it, so I don’t know if I’ll finish it by the end of the month, but that’s okay.

Read 1 fiction book a week.: Haven’t started a new one  yet. I did get my two books in the mail last week, so will probably start one of them soon.

Social Media:

Comment on at least 5 blogs a week: Made a couple comments, probably 2-3. so not the five, but the week isn’t over yet.

RT at least 5 articles a week.: Not sure how many, not 5 yet though I don’t think.

Interact personally at least once a week on Twitter.: haven’t really even done that yet this week. Still have a few days in the week though.

Finish setting up my Facebook page.: Nothing yet. But, I got my page set up for my knitting. Since that’s done, I might be able to put some time on my writer page.


Cut out pop at home: Still doing good with this one.

Attempt to eat healthier snacks: Need to get to the store to get something besides popcorn. But, I’ve been making a large bowl of popcorn and then put it in a different container and eat a small bowl of it at night. Sometimes I’ll grab a handful during the day too. That lasts me about 3-4 days.

Exercise 4-5 times a week.: Didn’t work out on Sunday, but did Monday, Tuesday, and this morning even though the program reminded me today was supposed to be a rest day. planning on doing one more tomorrow, then I’ll rest on Friday.

  1. Congratulations on finishing a draft of your novel. You seem very organised with your plans. Well done for that too.

  2. Already congratulated you on Facebook for finishing, but hey…it’s a reason to celebrate, so CONGRATULATIONS. 😉

    Isn’t hard to break out of a trend and adapt to some of the social media platforms? Though with Re-Tweeting, I have the opposite problem you do… I tend to RT too much and not actually interact with the people as much as I should. It all seems to fly by so fast, and there are so many interesting people with stuff to say. Which is to say “I commiserate”.

  3. Congrats on getting your draft done! It’s a great feeling isn’t it?
