I liked Kait’s horse race metaphor so much, I have to continue it for a while. I have left the gate, but only at a slow walking gait, as if I have been riding astride all my life and find myself in a side-saddle. Also, although I have no pretensions to being irreplaceable at the day job, it is stunning how much work was waiting for me upon my return from a week and a half at a conference and then on vacation.
1. I am dedicating a 1/2 hour everyday to a non-fiction, scholarly, article. Only two out of four days, although I plan to adjust this goal to five days–the work week. I don’t really want to think about it on my days off.
2. I will write at least five sentences everyday on my fiction. Three out of four days–I’ll take it, and keep working on it. I am keeping up, so far, with WIPpet Wednesdays, but am putting them up on my author blog.
3. I will spend 1/2 hour everyday on one or more of the blogs. Two out of four days–again, room for improvement, but some movement at least. I got some great advice at the end of Round Two that I am mulling. I need to learn some WordPress tricks, and am working through whether to try to learn by myself or pay for help. I do need to do something, though, that is clear.
