Trying not to lose my hat! Seriously, how am I doing? Quite well, I think. I feel as though I’ve gotten the horse over a few hurdles, and feel pretty confident about how things are progressing.
Today, I’m meeting with my colleagues to report on my progress on the article, which will force me to work feverishly. I’ve proven that I respond to accountability, and have cleared more than two hours today to work on this goal. Stay tuned for my report on how I did. 🙂
As for my fiction goal, I decided to take on Kait’s challenge in the Sunday check-in to increase the word count. I started writing ten sentences a day, and although it’s early in the race, I’m keeping up with it. Part of the driving force behind this added productivity is my participation in WIPpet Wednesday. I recently added the goal of posting an excerpt every Wednesday, and so far, I’m succeeding.
I’m also continuing to ponder and plan the blogs. Even more exciting, I’m starting to find the themes and topics I want to write about. The exploration is helping me find my voice as well. Eden Mabee’s sponsor post engendered some deep contemplation, with some signposts for further discoveries. I’ve struggled with impostor syndrome most of my life, so that admonition to be who I am was scary and liberating in the same breath.
I hope everyone is clearing their fences with hats intact this Round. Please drop by some of the ROW80 participants here. They are a diverse, interesting group.
