Happy August Camp NaNoWriMo! And may the odds be ever in your favor!
Last Week’s Goals
1) Finish characters, plot, and set up for Camp Nano.
Seriously. Not sure what’s been going on lately, but I’ve had three migraines this week, and one of them lasted two days. So I slipped up on Camp Nano prep. That’s okay! Because I know exactly how I’m going to get it done, and I will find the time today.
2) Finish discussions tonight. Split homework between Saturday and Sunday.
Got my discussions done on Wednesday night, but I didn’t split my homework this week. Which was okay, because it only took me about two hours on Sunday. For four assignments, that’s really good.
3) Slide back to posting three days a week
Hey, look! Something I did actually complete!
I’m pretty proud of yesterday’s post, since it was written in complete migraine haze but doesn’t sound like crap. This voice thing is becoming easier as time goes on.
4) MOAR WRITER’S BUTT! (and maybe some TLC for me this weekend)
Didn’t get my TLC this weekend because I spent most of it nursing a migraine. BUT. I’ve been doing Writer’s Butt even if my head feels like it wants to become the Grand Canyon. In addition, the hubs got me EA Sports Active 2, a game for the Wii. It’s like Wii Fit, but it’s a lot more forgiving and has actual trainer instruction. It also kicked my patootie all over the place. It was also $10 at Walmart. hint, hint.
This Week’s Goals
1) Fast plot today; Fast Draft 2,000 words each weekday
If you check out my post yesterday, I explain that 2,000 words for 25 days will get me my Nano. There’s 24 weekdays in the month. I figure if I count spillover (you never really stop at your daily wordcount goal – or at least I don’t) I’ll do fine. The idea is that I keep writing. Yay Nano.
2) Discussions tonight, homework Sunday
Let’s just stick to the basics. If I can get this done every week, I’ll graduate.
3) Schedule a couple of posts ahead of time this month
This is really something I should have done last month, but time got away from me. I need to make sure I’m getting a good balance between social media time, blogging, and Nano. Also: I should really be doing that work thing, and maybe graduating. The hubs will understand.
4) Try to work out with EA Sports Active 2 for 10 minutes a day, as well as doing Writers Butt at work
10 minutes a day with that game is torture. They are relentless. But supportive. So I feel like a jerk if I just turn it off.
But yeah. Keep doing squats and wall presses at work (they’re discrete enough to do in the ladies room) and then sweat it out when I get home.
Now, excuse me while I go question my life choices and cry into my egg sammich. <3
