A mixed bag of a week, to be sure. I did a lot of writing this week, but all in the realm of articles for the day job. It’s good to get them done, but it is not as satisfying as creative writing. I did manage a ten-minute sprint on Friday, so that was helpful–thanks to Eden, who suggested it. I should be able to post something for WIPpet Wednesday, which makes me happy.
I was back in Manhattan on Tuesday for more doctors’ appointments. It was nice to go to a different neighborhood and find a new coffee/tea shop. I had planned to do some writing on the train, but I was tired and cranky, so I ended up just reading and dozing on the trip.
It was a tough week, so I didn’t accomplish many goals. There was a lot to do for the day job, and I seemed to need a lot of down time. In addition to the article I finished writing, I read an article for the dissertation’s literature review. I was supposed to work on mindful eating, with some success. I’m still having some illness, so I suppose eating only non-fat foods, and very few of those, means I am meeting this goal.
