Well, this is kind of a pointless check-in as I have done nothing towards my goals since Wednesday. Nothing. Ok, here are my goals:
1) Write at least 1000 words five days a
week (week total 5,000 words)
2) Two ROW80
check-ins a week no matter how short but sweet they
3) Read two books a week for 100+ reading
challenge (or as much as I can!).
Review one book a month.
So I have completed goal two by writing this so I guess that is something!
Goal one. Where to start. I wanted to write 5000 words this week but since I haven't written since Tuesday I have only made 2,045 words. Which I know is good but not as much as I wanted. I think I underestimated the impact returning to work would make on my time, my energy, my brain power! In the evening it just seemed too much to try and write 1000 words so I just didn't even try. Believe me I am annoyed at myself. Yes I was tired and yes I had work to do and yes there is some family stuff going on at home but actually I could have written. But I didn't.
So I am not going to change my writing goal. I am going to keep it the same and aim for 1000 words five times a week but even if I sit down and write 100 words then that is progress towards the 5000 words. I feel if I change my goal I will be giving myself an excuse to try less and that is not ok. So let's see how this goes!!
I am reading a book I have really enjoyed and have nearly finished. I cannot wait till the 13th of September when the new Marian Keye's book is out and I should think 'The Mystery of Mercy Close' will be my September review! I just love Marian.
I hope you have all had much more productive weeks than me and hopefully when I check in this time next week I will be reporting a 5000 word week!!!
