Here's how I did and what I hope to accomplish in the coming week:
My goal for the month of February is to have 1/3 to 1/2 of my WiP drafted. This past week, I set a goal of adding 6000 new words to my WiP. I didn't meet my goal this week. I managed to write 3500 words, so it wasn't a total bust. This week was weirdly busy, so it was a challenge to find time to sit and write. I could have skipped the Oscars and worked on writing, but I was just tired and unmotivated.
This week → Add 5000 more new words to my WiP.
I finished the entire BURN FOR BURN trilogy by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian this week. Loved these books--the writing, the characters, the plot, the setting--right up until the epilogue. Won't say anything further to avoid spoilers, but ughhhh about sums it up. I've also been continuing my reread of RUBY RED by Kerstin Gier and am getting very close to the end.
I wanted to shut off the TV two nights this week and do something else instead, but failed again. I am officially giving up on this goal for the duration of Writer Recharge. To be honest, I'm more concerned about my writing goal than anything.
My goal was to eat fruits + veggies daily and exercise at least once (increasing this to twice, then three times, etc.). I went for a walk with my husband once this week and went bowling as well, but I don't know if that even qualifies as exercise. I have been struggling with the fruits + veggies thing, mainly because I really need to go grocery shopping and pick some up.
This week → Eat more fruits + veggies and exercise at least once or twice. Keeping it simple.
I managed to do a teeny tiny writing sprint via Twitter earlier in the week, but got called away earlier than anticipated. I still managed to squeeze in 600 words in that 1/2 hour, so I was happy with that. Going to keep popping in and checking Twitter for others who are writing when I'm sitting down to write. Turns out there are lots of day writers like me, so yay!
I didn't get around to knitting this week. I plan on finally doing that this week, even if I have to schedule it in my planner.
So, #WriterRecharge peeps, how did you do this week?
