Goals Summary 2020 – Wk #21

I’m running out of ways to introduce this post every week. So, let’s just get on with it.

Last Week

  • Tavi revisions cont’d
  • Post another episode of Mrs. Harlow’s Quarantine Reads!
  • Read 100+ pages of The Priory of the Orange Tree
  • Write 800+ words

How’d I Do?

  • Tavi revisions cont’d
    • YEP! This was a major success for the week.
  • Post another episode of Mrs. Harlow’s Quarantine Reads!
    • Yarp. I hope you enjoyed it.
  • Read 100+ pages of The Priory of the Orange Tree
    • Yes! It’s moving along and pulling me in. I just forgot how… slow Epic Fantasy can be.
  • Write 800+ words
    • Maybe? Technically, I think yes, because of rewrites. But I don’t track those word counts… so no?

Weekly Word Count: ?/0

It was a very productive week. I finished the first round of revisions on Tavi, made a video, read a bit, and binged two seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender. So yeah. Life’s good.

Oh, and we’re still sheltering in place, despite the state entering Phase One of reopening. My husband and I agree that it’s a mistake to behave as if we’ve “beaten” this virus and are dreading that second wave in the coming months. But people can’t handle being cooped up for this long, apparently. After the restlessness of the first few weeks we’ve settled into an easy routine. I think it will take a long time to feel comfortable in large groups again.

So, What’s Next?

  • Tavi revisions
  • Post another HQR video
  • Read 100pgs of The Priory of the Orange Tree
  • Write 800+ words

I’ll be reading Tavi pretty much all day — ironing out the timeline, assessing pacing and structure, and continuing line edits. Barring any major revisions/rewrites, this round of edits should take no more than two weeks to get through. I’m feeling hopeful so far.

I’ve got another video ready to make tomorrow, one I’m pretty excited to talk about. So that’s good. I think Priory will be a slow and steady wins the race situation. If I read ~100 pages a week, I’ll be done in July. Probably. I should probably bump up that page count if I want to get through it… damn.

Writing is… what it is, right now. My focus is on Tavi and consuming media in my down time. I did play a little Dragon Age last week, so maybe I’ll get back to writing some fic, but the summers are typically a writing dry season for me. We’ll see if the pandemic has any effect on that. Or the whole not-working-in-the-summer, thing. Because that’s new.

Anyway, I’m off to eat something and start reading my book. Again.

Until next time, Bloggarts!
