One of the extra offerings today is a witty video that my friend, author Martina Dalton, showed to us on our last critique meeting. The smart and talented girl in the video is the daughter of a friend of Martina’s. We need more kids like her.
- Write 2,500 words/week. 3,329 words distributed among several projects.
- Outline of BLUE #2. Some progress, but not much.
- Outline of CRIMSON. Ditto.
- Re-write career plan. I got a little behind on my online class.
Social Media goals:
- Blog schedule: 1-2 posts/week, plus ROW80 updates on Sundays. Done!
- Create a stash of blog topics and blog posts. I had some ideas, but I need to write them down.
- Support fellow writers. Good, but not great. At least I did a little to help promote August McLaughlin’s Beauty of a Woman blogfest. More about that below.
- Exercise at least 4 times a week (at least 2 runs and 2 workouts). Ran twice, worked out once. Since I did an extra workout last week, I’ll give myself a green
- Study/Research at least 2 hours/week. I did it!
- Read every day. This didn’t go well. Basically, blogs have replaced books. Still trying to find some balance here.
Quick summary: a productive week. I completed two side projects related to my WIPs, wrote, exercised, blogged, promoted, and commented. It could have been worse
