It’s Wednesday again folks, and that means it’s ROW80 Check In time! Hurrah! Let’s start with the promises I made last week, kay?
I am very pleased to say that I’ve kept both promises that I made last week!
Every weekday I’ve produced a blog post written in typical early morning fashion. They’re a little quirky, sometimes incomplete, but the fact is that they’re being written at 4:30 am. Cut me some slack. So Promise No. 1 is a go.
Promise No. 2 was about kicking my own Writer’s Butt into shape with Ginger Calem’s Writersbutt Wednesday. I haven’t been hitting 100 ounces of water every day (usually between 80 and 90), but I’ve been doing the squats and wall presses with every potty run. The muscles right above my knees hurt quite a bit lately… an athletic coworker of mine suggested I lay off the squats until those muscles stop hurting… but that almost seems like giving up. I should ask Ginger…
Anywho. So, TGDL readers, you’ve done it. You’ve made me stay accountable. How’s them apples? Give yourselves all a big pat on the back, cause without you, I’d still be asleep.
On second thought, y’all suck. I want to sleep in!
Last Week’s Goals
Moving on to goals before I start to whine. (Seriously, I miss sleeping in until 6.)
1) Work on new WIP, split Dylan of Sigyn’s Cage, and write 1 page a day
My August Camp Nanowrimo story has a title! For Love, Paint, and Tutelage is in the plotting stage as we speak. Well, not really as we speak, but close enough. Dylan did not get any love because I’m a little mad at him. His personality is begging to be two people, but he isn’t playing fair. Aaaaaand I mostly hit my baseline every day. Yesterday it didn’t happen, but I was sick, damnit.
Also, throughout the work day yesterday, I typed about 7,000 words for a report. I was tiiiiiired.
2) Same as last week (Split homework between Saturday and Sunday.)
I totally derped on this. In fact, I didn’t get my Wednesday discussions done. Our company picnic was on Saturday, so I had to work. Yay for being Admin.
And I still have one outstanding Sunday project.
Last week was just a total wreck. Let’s do better this week! Go Dahnya go!
3) Use blog to do morning pages
Houston, we have morning pages.
4) Writer’s Butt ALL THE THINGS
Houston, we also have Writer’s Butt. Good job, everyone.
This Week’s Goals
1) Finish characters, plot, and set up for Camp Nano.
I’m going to go against the spirit of ROW80 this week and toss my page requirement out the door. I’ve got a week until Camp Nano, and I’ve got all of jack and shit done in preparation. So this week is all about making things shine. Dylan can just go sit in a corner until next week.
2) Finish discussions tonight. Split homework between Saturday and Sunday.
All good intentions here. Let’s see if they stick.
3) Slide back to posting three days a week
I’m sure you guys have looooooved my idiotic ramblings, but I need to spend a bit more time polishing them. I proved that I could write a post a day with no preparation. That’s awesome. But I feel like I’m not producing the quality of content I want.
So I’ll post Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday this week and see how that goes. I’ve got some awesome stuff planned…
4) MOAR WRITER’S BUTT! (and maybe some TLC for me this weekend)
No joke guys, I’m worn the fugg out. My pre-Nano prep this weekend is going to be a nice back rub, maybe a pedicure (dunno, never got one before – always wanted to try), and some good old fashioned video game playing.
But yeah. Writer’s Butt. I should go message Ginger…
Seriously, folks. Thank you for stopping by. Y’all are awesome.
Now, excuse me while I go shove the husband out of bed and whine at him about lack of sleep!
