Goals Summary 2019 – Wk #11

Hey Bloggos,

With less than half a week to get anything done, I had some low expectations which is probably why the whiteboard was in the black by Sunday night.

Last Week

  • Publish two blog posts
  • Finish Tavi chapter 14
  • Catch up on short stories

How’d I do?

  • Publish two blog posts
    • Yep! Due to last week’s travel there were a bit closer together than usual, but both the Goals Summary and my thoughts on our trip are up now.
  • Finish Tavi chapter 14
    • Yes! I think I wrote that last bit in somewhat of a stupor because I don’t really remember doing it, but it’s done and the next chapter is underway.
  • Catch up on short stories
    • Yarp. I mean, I still have to read two short stories today and tomorrow, but I’m on track and reading consistently, which is the whole point.

Weekly Word Count: 1,170

I don’t have a whole lot to talk about last week, since the work week didn’t really start for me until Friday. My weekend was filled with chores, writing, and reading. We made dinners and watched movies and I binged a nature documentary on Saturday. That was about it.

What’s Next?

  • Publish two blog posts
  • Write 500 words/day on Tavi
  • Clean the office

Okay, that last one is a weird one. I don’t normally put household chores on my list of weekly goals, but this one is related to my writing and it’s been bugging me for forever so it’s time to prioritize it. It’s not even all that bad, but things need tidying and organizing, and the floors could do with a sweep. So onto the list it goes.

I’ve been doing pretty good about writing this month. I’d like to catch up for all the missed writing days during vacation, but I’m not going to burden myself with the added workload either. Every word over 500 in a day just adds up. Maybe it’ll be enough. Maybe not. We’ll know on the 31st. (I just did the math, which is always suspect for me; I need to write 719 words a day from here on out to meet my goal for the month, which is doable. But still, I’m not going to push for it, I’ll get close regardless.)

The blog should be fairly active this week. I’ve got the book review for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society to write this week and I might write up a little something else if I find myself with some extra time. half in light half in shadows

I have a Walk ‘n’ Talk scheduled with Madhu on Thursday, and then it’s trivia night with Video Games as the theme, so yeah. I’ll be going to that. Friday night is “An Evening with David Barker” which I feel I ought to go to, since I’m on the masthead for his chapbook Half in Light, Half in Shadow, which he’ll be signing at the event. Plus, David’s a great guy and deserves all the support. So, if you’re in the Salem area on Friday night, you should come say hi!

And all of a sudden my week looks pretty busy. Damn. I guess that means it’s time to get to work!

  1. Oh, wow, it looks like you have quite a bit going on this week. It also sounds like between last week and this week, you should be quite productive, to say the least. It also sounds like it should be fun (and with a book signing to boot)!

    I also thoroughly get the desire to clean your office. I haven’t actually gotten my study set up since I’ve moved into my house, but it is thoroughly on the list. Lol. 🙂

      • Haha! It’s always kinda nice (and kinda amusing) when that happens. Like “That’s not what I intended, but I suppose it works.” And hey, now you can check it off your list. Lol. 🙂
