My new writing schedule has been going pretty good, despite the internet issues earlier in the week. Friday was actually the only day I didn’t get my 8 hours in. And that’s because I spent almost 4 hours out trying to weed the garden. I’d been doing good keeping the rows cleared, but I let it grow up between them, which made it difficult to get into the rows of veggies. So, I cleared that out and found that I do actually have some cucumbers starting. The garden hasn’t done all that well this year. I was able to get one small zucchini and and not much more than a handful of green beans on Friday. And all our pea plants seem to have died. Hopefully next year, it will do better. I figured my arms would hurt from pulling all those weeds, but no, it’s my legs.
Anyway, since I only got a little more than 4 hours in on Friday, I decided to do the rest on Saturday. So I did still get everything done. And wrote over 19500 words.
Flames of Retribution – 3 hrs/day – done.My word counts did take a dip this week, but it’s still going well. I’m just over 25k on this. Flames of Redemption – 2 hrs/day & find readers– done & kind of done. I have it sent to one reader, but wouldn’t mind one or two more. If you’re interested, let me know. Doren’s Story(currently titled Scars and All) – 1 hr/day & finish character work– character work is done & starting on plotting out the story. Law of Choice – 1 hr/day – shooting for another 10 pages– Up to page 28 in the notebook. I wrote 1815 words, not counting what I wrote in the notebook Saturday but haven’t typed up yet. Flames of Justice – 1/2 hr/day– hoping to finish back stories at least – back stories done. Plotting done. And have about half a page written in the notebook. Rick & Leann – 1/2 hr a day & finish– DONE!! Wrote the last words on this yesterday. It’s over 12k now. I, uh, may need to revisit the definition of ‘short story’. lol. Read: Beyond Control(Kit Rocha) & Past My Defenses(Wendy Sparrow)– Finished both of these early in the week. Also read: Break You(Jennifer Snyder) – enjoyed, My Sister’s Demon(Julie Glover) – this was good, and Unstoppable(S.R Johannes) – loved the final book in this series. Also read The Impossible Wish(Christine Nolfi) – loved this one too. More than halfway through listening to Mockingjay Crochet: Ship’s Helm Dishcloth– done And started the last knitting project I had planned for this month.
Next week’s goals:
- Flames of Retribution – Draft 3 hrs/day: At least another 10k
- Healing the Heart – Revise 2 hrs/day: Through Chapter 25
- Scars and All – Plot 1 hr/day: Finish plotting
- Law of Choice – Write 1 hr/day: 10 pages
- Flames of Justice – 1 hr/day: 5 pages
- Knit: Turtle Love Bib
No reading goal this week since I’ve read all 10 books on my list for the month. I’ll still be reading of course, and probably finish Mockingjay. I’ll probably start out behind schedule since the girl has her 7 year check-up on Monday.
