Goals Summary 2018 – Wk 27

Blogland,

Here we are, another week down. The time is flying by entirely too quickly, and from behind the haze of this migraine, this thing is likely to be short.

Last Week

  • Publish two blog posts
  • Write 500 words/day on The Steel Armada
  • Start chapter 6 of Sanctuary
  • Write a tumblr prompt
  • Finish reading Kill the Farm Boy
  • Submit Lifelike somewhere
  • Record an “episode” of Santa Sarita
  • Review Madhu’s pages

How’d I Do?

  • Publish two blog posts
    • Yes! Actually, there were three last week, including the unexpected review for Kill the Farm Boy!Kill the Farm Boy
  • Write 500 words/day on The Steel Armada
    • Nope. I did write a few hundred words, but that was it. There was a considerable reread and a few minor edits however.
  • Start chapter 6 of Sanctuary
    • Yep. Not much, a few hundred words, but it’s a start.
  • Write a tumblr prompt
    • No. I started one, but did not finish it. Again, a few hundred words only.
  • Finish reading Kill the Farm Boy
    • Yes! And I finished a whole ‘nother book on top of that!
  • Submit Lifelike somewhere
    • Yes. And I just received its rejection… c’est la vie.
  • Record an “episode” of Santa Sarita
    • No… I started recording then managed to get horribly distracted.
  • Review Madhu’s pages
    • Yes. As usual.

Weekly Word Count: 951

Yikes. That is not a stellar start to the month. But, I did more reading this last week than I did in all of June so I guess that’s a fair trade. For all my efforts yesterday I have a migraine today, so no writing to be had, but quite a lot of listening to Brief Cases, the only audiobook I have on my phone at present. I’m about halfway through it already, which means July is off to a very impressive reading start.

Now if I can just kick the writing back into gear.

What’s Next?

  • Publish two blog posts
  • Write chapter 7 of The Steel Armada
  • Write 500 words on Sanctuary
  • Finish tumblr prompt
  • Finish a Dresden audiobook
  • Submit Lifelike
  • Review Madhu’s pages

I should really add “record an episode of Santa Sarita” on there, but I didn’t want to add another bullet point. This is plenty. More than plenty, considering I only completed half of them last week.

I’ve got a long day at work tomorrow, a short day on Wednesday. I’m off Thursday and Friday and then work another long day on Saturday. My schedule is pretty weird right now because the branch I normally work at is closed for renovations. So, I’m still getting decent-ish hours, but have more days off. Hopefully I can turn those extra days off into productivity.

We’ll see.

Midnight RiotI’ve got the book review for Midnight Riot (published as Rivers of London in the UK) on deck, as well as my next editing check-in for this week, so expect to see me around a bit.

Until then,

 

BZ
