This week has continued the retrenchment of last week, with the only working computer needing to be used for my son’s classwork, but lack of technology is ceasing to be a good excuse. And yes, it is still rather hot in upstate New York, but that really isn’t an excuse either. I was in simmering phase last week, which isn’t bad, except when I try to measure my steps toward the goals.
The thinking is good; even the writing in longhand is good, in many ways. I’m getting to know the characters slowly, and beginning to build the worlds more fully. It will be a short check-in, because the vampires are stirring.
Writing: Although I have more notes than finished product, I did continue work on the post on how words hurt. I also began a post answering the 11 questions meme that has been making the rounds. I hope to get those posts done this week. There’s also been a lot of character and world musing and noting, which is fun, even if it doesn’t always result in strung-together words on the page.
Community: I’m a bit late on replying to comments, but I do manage to catch up within a day or two. I want to work on improving this lag time.
Exercise: I’ve bolstered the walking with good nutrition and hydration, at least at home. Now I need to work on eating better and staying hydrated at work.
Personal: I’m getting slowly better at responding on FB, but not where I want to be on Twitter or other platforms yet. More to work on, but that is the point of goals, right? 😉
I’m off to sit in front of the fan, so please visit some ROWers who can be found here.
