Home of a mother, wife, writer

Writing:

My writing week has been going good so far. Taking a break over the weekend always seems to get me recharged and back to being more productive, and yet, I still feel like I’m being lazy because there’s at least 1 and sometimes 2 days where I don’t write a single word. And yet I make up for it at least at the beginning of the week. So, maybe I need to take the hint and when the words don’t want to come, take some time off, not more than a day, I think, but just a little break from it.
Anyway, I have written at least 1000 words each morning so far this week, sometimes that’s taken me a little over an hour, but yesterday I got there in about 45 minutes. I have over 3300 words written this week, so I should hit my 5000 word target by Friday.

Editing:

Still working my way through the novella, and I should still be finished by the end of this week. Then, I want to do one more read through of it and I’ll be looking for beta readers. If anyone’s interested, it’s a western &Ā  about 26,000 words long.

Plotting:

moving along on this as well. Hoping to have the blueprint finished this week. Think I’m still on track to have all the planning done by the end of the month.

Social Media:

Haven’t been doing so good with commenting, and I didn’t post on Monday, but I did get Tuesday’s knitting post up. As long as I get tomorrow and Friday’s posts up, I’ll still consider this good. And I have kept up with comments here. Of course there have not been a lot this week, so that hasn’t been too difficult.

Reading:

I finished reading Wilde’s Army last night. now to wait for the next book to come out. Will start reading Alight: The Peril by K.C. Neal today. I’ve read 56 books so far this year.

Health:

Did good with tracking(and staying within) my calories on Monday and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Yesterday, not so good. It was a bit cold in the house again, so baked some cake mix cookies(Devil’s Food cake ones this time. Made Funfetti ones last week) and warmed the house up. And, of course, ate cookie dough while I baked them. And had 2 cookies shortly after they came out of the oven. My calories were pretty much shot first thing in the morning. But, back on track today. Planning on getting on the treadmill when my son takes a nap today. Did it while he was up Monday, and he got into my knitting stuff and took the slipper I was working on right off the needle(was able to pick it back up without much problem).

Hoping the rest of the week keeps going well. How is everyone else’s week shaping up?

Comments on: "Writing Wednesday: Wednesday Check-In" (7)

  1. Great job.
    Sometimes a rest is a good thing. Besides, even if we are not writing, we are thinking about it so it still counts.
    Have a great few days. x

    • Thanks for stopping by. And that’s so true. Even when I’m doing something else, my mind is usually on what I’m writing…or planning to write. So, I guess, in a way, I am still working on it. šŸ™‚

  2. I actually schedule two days off a week…Sunday and Wednesday, which are church days. So I only write five days a week. (Or fewer if I’m not on a good track.) But we need days off from writing just like people need days off from any other job. šŸ™‚

  3. I agree with everyone else, nothing wrong with taking a few days off. I take Saturday/Sunday off for the blog and Sunday off from any writing. The weekend definitely recharges me and often Mondays feel the most productive.

    But like you, I’m constantly thinking about it 24/7, whether or not I actually write. šŸ˜€

  4. Hey, nice job Fallon! You’ve got some great writing and plotting done! That’s what I need to get workin’ on! I think it’s ok you weren’t as visible on social media since you used your time to get your writing and health on track. That’s much more important. And now when you sign on, you get to celebrate! šŸ™‚

  5. I think you are doing amazing. I so get what you are saying about weekends. I need to recharge, but sometimes two days of off makes Monday harder to reboot, so it stretches into Monday and…

    Impressive word totals. And I am appreciative that you made it by my blog and commented. I’ll be using your advice.

    You’re doing an awesome job! I can’t write every day either. Sometimes the brain needs to percolate in the background. Keep up the excellent progress.
