Here's how I did and what I hope to accomplish in the coming week:
My overarching 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, EVERY SAD & LOVELY THING. I met my goal, coming in at just over 6000 words written! This week was busy, so I'm pretty proud.
This week → Add 6000 more new words to my WiP.
I finished FIRE WITH FIRE by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian. (My goal is to read the whole BURN FOR BURN trilogy.) I liked the first book, but holy cannoli, book two was SO good. Now, I'm about to eagerly dive into ASHES TO ASHES and would like to finish it this week. I'm also continuing my reread of RUBY RED by Kerstin Gier.
I wanted to shut off the TV two nights this week and do something else (read, write, whatever), but failed again. Beginning to think this is a goal I should just give up on. I mean, I like TV and I can knit while watching great shows, right? Right?
My goal was to eat fruits + veggies daily and exercise at least once (increasing this to twice, then three times, etc.). I didn't eat enough fruits + veggies, and I only went for one piddly walk that barely qualifies as exercise. I would like to go for more walks this week and maybe for longer. It has been so mild lately, so it's perfect walking weather. Also, more fruits + veggies.
I'm kind of giving up on the writing sprints thing unless they are happening when I'm sitting down to write. I'll check in on Twitter and see if anyone else is writing, but if not, I'm okay with that. I have been connecting more with writer friends via social media, so that's something that makes me very, very happy. I feel like I've been lazy about that in recent months.
I didn't get around to knitting this past week. Part of that was because I was waiting on new circular needles. (A lot of my patterns called for them.) SO, the plan is to get knitting and purling this week. I have something Austen-inspired in mind.
So, #WriterRecharge peeps, how did you do this week?
