ROW80 Check-In – 3.1: Sunday Best

It’s the end of Week #27 and the first week of ROW80 Round 3. I don’t know how it happened, but the last four days have been…challenging. Yes, we’ll go with challenging. Intuition led me to believe that a two-day work week would be a breeze and then bam! Another weekend. Woohoo! Right? It wasn’t a breeze and the weekend has seen me working more than relaxing. My to-do list still has a lot of items on it, and it’s getting closer and closer to that time when I accept that not everything is going to get done. Here’s my final rundown for the week.

Write 7000 words each week.  13490/7000.  One thing has gone right this week (yes, one thing among many and I really am grateful for all of them).  I didn’t make it to 1000 words on Thursday or Friday, but I wrote just a little over 3K on Saturday and about 1200 today.  I am moving closer to the idea of posting the prequel novella I’m working on here on the website as well as on Wattpad.  Has anyone experimented with Wattpad?  What are your thoughts? I also abandoned one of my WIPs (again) and it could finally be dead this time.  For CampNaNo I’m thisclose to being halfway to my goal and we’re not even a third of the way through July.  Currently sitting at 17944/36000.  Truthfully, all is good in my writing world.

Journal everyday.  7/7.  My journaling streak remains unbroken! 28 days and counting.

Read one book a week.  Well, I haven’t read anything new in the last four days.  I’m exactly where I was on my previous check-in.

  1. The Sisters Brothers – Patrick DeWitt
  2. This Side of the Grave – Jeaniene Frost
  3. Turn Coat – Jim Butcher
  4. Surrender – Lisa Renee Jones
  5. The Return of Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan Doyle
  6. Ride Rough – Laura Kaye
  7. Entice Me – J. Kenner
  8. Anchor Me – J. Kenner
  9. Ripley Under Ground – Patricia Highsmith
  10. Demon from the Dark – Kresley Cole
  11. Just One Touch – Maya Banks
  12. Hard As Steel – Laura Kaye
  13. Hard Ever After – Laura Kaye
  14. The Iscariot Sanction – Mark A. Latham
  15. Random – Craig Robertson

Write one book review for my blog each week.  I’ve missed this goal for the week.  This will be a priority for Week #28.  Ideally, I would like to post book reviews every Friday.

Walk/Run twelve miles each week.  Seriously? I’m still standing behind the starting line on this goal.  When is the starter finally going to begin this race?

On this Sunday I’m doing my best to get through those items on my to-do list that feel like they are hanging over my head like a hangman’s axe.  It means making some trade-offs, but if I feel a bit more in control at the start of the work week, they are trade-offs worth making.

Do something today to get one step closer to achieving your Dream Goals.  Have a great week!

    Wow, looks like you are really getting at those goals. The walk/run thing is really way overrated, so I wouldn’t worry about that one too much. Just keeping moving forward with what you can.

    Looks like you’re doing really well, even if you haven’t hit everything you wanted. Go you!

    I’m at last learning to accept that not getting everything done thing – I always plan for more than I can fit. I’m now working at getting better at it….but it’s slow going.

    Best of luck to you!

      Yes, it’s hard thing for my mostly Type A personality to accept, but once I figured out that, at least for me, it’s more about doing the things that matter most to me and that I’m passionate about, it was like a brand new frame of mind. Thanks for stopping by!
