Hey there, fellow ROWers!
It’s time for what just might be my busiest midweek update of 2018.
Sunday was a writing group meeting – the last pre-NaNo.
Monday was a NaNo kickoff party at a local library.
Yesterday was the Smokey-pup’s post-spay checkup, buying pumpkins for Lise to carve, taking the dogs to the dog park since Smokey got her all-clear, and doing laundry and a little shopping.
Today is some clothing shopping with Lise, a stop at Spirit for a final component for my costume, trick or treating with my teen Black Cat Fallen Angel – might be her last year – and then off to the Albany Region National Novel Writing Month Halloween/NaNo Kickoff Party at the local Denny’s where we meet weekly, year round.
Tomorrow, I’m taking Jeremiah to pick up an item he’s purchasing from a local garage sale site.
Friday, so far, is blessedly uncomplicated, other than laundry.
Saturday, I’ll be at a private NaNo Double Up write-in, and have my first WAM (see below).
And then Sunday brings a book fair….but I’m getting ahead of myself
The challenge for the week is fitting in those tending goals, and the learning goals, around all the out-and-about times.
How do you deal with times like this?
Week 5 Action Plan: 24 Items Total
Completed: 2/24; 8%
In Progress: 9/24; 38%
Not Yet Started: 13/24; 54%
These midweek totals are a little deceptive, since NaNoWriMo begins at midnight, and I can’t begin addressing those six goals until then. I expect a more balanced scorecard by Sunday’s update.
I check in five days weekly with my Accountability Group, and twice weekly with ROW80.
- Checked in with group on Sunday. 1/5; 20%
- Checked in with ROW80 Sunday. 1/2; 50%.
I accomplish at least 50% of my Action Plans for all goals.
- 3/6; 50%
I learn how to score and plan my week.
- Progress with assessing percentages. 25%
I schedule and conduct WAMs weekly.
- First WAM is scheduled; 50%
I research plumbing and flooring – which comes first?
- It’s plumbing. 100%.
I schedule a time each week to review my online calendar; adding and revising as needed.
I trim Noli’s nails.
I clean Sapphire the betta fish’s tank.
I begin NaNoWriMo with my Kov/Koss Star Trek: Enterprise fan fiction novel, Unpromised.
I maintain my personal NaNoWriMo word count goal of 2,000 words Thursday-Friday.
I double my word count at the Double Down Write-In on Saturday.
I write 222 words on one of myother fan fiction stories in progress on Thursday and Friday.
I write 888 words on one of my other fan fiction stories in progress on Saturday.
I complete Pixels to Platform Module Two.
- Week 1/2; 50%
I explore CSS, finding resourcesfor tutorials.
I resolve my font plug in issue.
I submit my bio to 518 Publishing Company.
I complete Module Three of DIY-MFA 101.
