Hard to believe it is all ready the final check-in for this round.
This week started out really well. Was actually awake before my alarm even went off on Monday, so I got started a little early. Usually when I get off to a good start, the rest of the day/week goes well. Unless something throws a wrench into it, which can happen quite often sometimes.
Have at least 21950 of WiP: I wrote 1183 words Monday morning which put me up to 21206. Tuesday morning I did not write as many words but I did still get 860. That put me up to 22066 which means I met this goal a whole day early. That does not happen too often for me. This morning, I struggled a bit more with the words but still got 550. Since I was all ready ahead of my target, this put me just about 200 words behind tomorrow’s goal. So, I’m still rolling right along here.
Write on 750words.com every day: Still going strong on this one. I’m currently on a 45 day streak. On day 6 of my no distractions streak. So just another four days before I can get that badge. Hopefully I will actually make it this time. I’m only about 18,000 away from the 50,000 word goal. Not sure that I’ll make it this month, but I’m still going to try. And I’m less than 20,000 away from getting the flock badge(for writing a lifetime total of 100,000 words). None of those will be achieved during this round, of course. But, hoping to have them by the time the next round starts.
Have Knitting Monday and Short Tuesday up on time: Done and done. I posted about my second month stats for my business on Monday and on Tuesday posted a portion of the prologue from my finished first draft. I’ve been trying to have posts written and scheduled ahead of time this week and have been doing okay with that. Tuesday’s post was actually done on Monday, and I’ve been working on this one throughout the week, updating it as I go.
Finish Living Half Free: I finished reading this on Monday. I felt like the ending lacked something. Not sure what just felt kind of disappointed by it. But, overall I really liked the story. I started reading another one last night, but not too sure about it yet. It’s written in fist person which always feels weird to me. Going to give it a little bit before I put it down though.
Read Chapter 8 of Plot & Structure and do exercises: Haven’t gotten to this yet(as of Tuesday morning).
Workout Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: I had wanted to start doing the Couch 2 5K program on Monday. I even downloaded the app for it onto my Iphone(which isn’t really a phone anymore as we switched services, but anyway). But, when I woke up Monday morning it was raining. So, instead I did a cardio workout on the My Fitness Coach program for the Wii. Tuesday morning I did a fifteen minute upper body workout on it, but I think carrying my son down to wait for his sister’s bus to get here and take her to school should count as an upper body workout too. 😉 After I got my daughter on the bus this morning, I dug out the jogging stroller and made sure there was at least some air in the tires. And the boy and I struck out on the road for a walk/run. And I even had a couple people say they want to do the couch to 5k thing too, so hopefully if we all get together(virtually, since we all live in different states), that will help keep me accountable with it.
I will have my final wrap up of my goals tomorrow for the official end of the round.
