I didn’t get quite as much done this week as I have in past weeks, in a large part because I went down to see my family and wish my brother a belated happy birthday. I gave him his gift, and he promptly spent the next day teaching his daughter to say “Ah ah ah!” exactly like Nedry’s program does in Jurassic Park.
As soon as I got home on Sunday, I got hit with food poisoning, which meant I was completely out of commission all day Monday. I’m still clawing my way back to feeling “okay,” but at least I’m sitting upright.
1.Write 10,000 words on 2013 NaNo novel.
Stretch goal: FINISH IT.
I’m sitting pretty at ~6,000, which puts me right on target for the month. I SHOULD be able to write the other 4k before next Friday, especially since I’m not going out of town this weekend.
I’m also at a point of this story where I’m tying in a couple of scenes I wrote back in November, so it’s good to see how everything’s coming together. :-)
2.Edit 5 chapters of MGG.
Stretch goal: Edit 10 chapters.
I haven’t done any more on this since I hit my 5 chapters, but that will probably change this week.
3. Get halfway through the novel I’m critting.
Stretch goal: Finish the novel I’m critting.
I’ve gotten through another chapter! Woohoo! Unfortunately, I have 14 more to go before I hit the halfway point, so I’m REALLY going to have to step it up on this.
4. Write a query for MGG.
Haven’t gotten more work in on this one. Also on the list for this week.
Just FYI, #WriteMotivation sign-ups for March are open! (I know, I can’t believe it either.) Be sure to sign up and join us for encouragement and cookie-buttons. :-)
