As always quick recap of goals:
1) Do 30 minutes of something writing related each day.
2) Test mile - 250 words a day.
3) Read two books a week for 100+ reading challenge.
4) Review one book a month. (Done for this month and can be seen here )
5) Exercise twice a week.
Even though I haven't managed any #row80 sprints this week I have kept on top of things since Wednesday.

I have been plodding on with writing my WIP in the first person. I really like it and think it is the right thing for the story, it is just I am slow at writing this way! I read up on writing in the first person and the number one rule seems to be staying away from too much use of 'I'. One article (I can't remember which) says when editing hightlight every single 'I' and try to do something different with it. I also need to work on showing not telling which I am embarrassed to say never really understood before! If anyone has any links to advice on showing not telling they would be most welcome here!
Apart from today (so far!) I have done 30 minutes of something writing related, met and exceeded my test mile every day, read more than two books (I am on book 15 of the year) and posted my book review. I also met my exercise twice goal and exceeded it! This feels so so so so good! Walking and swimming are going to be my new best friends I have decided.
So happy bunny this end and although it has not been a blaze of glory week I have got everything done. I have loved having time to read although I did have to invest in some reading glasses on friday as my reading, writing and the day job are straining my eye muscles! They are cute and quirky though so I don't mind.
I am going to use the extra 15 minutes I did earlier in the week so today I will write my test mile for 15 minutes and then my week will be wrapped up nicely. Hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to reading some check-ins :)
