The first real week of September is down, and it was glorious. After a return to the triple-digit weather that’s plagued us for most of the summer, a cold front blew through on Friday (seriously blew; I had to drag all of our plants up to the back porch and hide them behind the grill to keep them from flying to Oz) and the temperature dropped like a rock.
I celebrated the lovely weather by doing yard work for three hours on Saturday morning. So our backyard no longer looks like a jungle from Jurassic Park, and I am no longer worried that my cat will get eaten by a raptor while he’s trying to pounce on garden snakes.
Plus, last week was a week “off” from work. I use the quotes because I worked more than I’d anticipated I would have to, but it wasn’t at the same frantic pace as usual. I actually had time to work on some things I’d been putting off for weeks, which has really helped to shrink the to-do list. And I was able to make some headway on my goals for this month.Here’s where the #writemotivation goals stand:
1) Finish Buzz stuff by Sept. 10.
Finished them with 30 minutes to spare!
2) Edit 5 chapters of the ’06 NaNo per week.
I’ve finished up through chapter 9 in my own paper edits. I’m probably going to try and finish the whole thing on paper before I start making changes to the actual Word document.
Then again, I might get antsy and just go ahead and start making the changes sometime this week. Who knows?
3) Post to the blog twice a week.
Well, I posted three times last week, and I’ve got another post half-written for later this week. So far, so good on this one.
4) Post at least 2 reviews.
One down, one to go.
5) Comment on at least 3 other blogs each week.
I hit this as well. I’m going to try to step it up to comment on a few more this week. We’ll see how it goes!
How are your goals coming?
