Writing - Work on WIPs, 3 blog posts/week, submit - MOSTLY MET.
a) Spent most of last week doing a writing-intensive week (4 hrs/day working on writing projects) and added somewhere between 5 & 6K words to one of my pseudonym's WIPs. Yay!
b) Published three blog posts, including the second in the series about writer's block.
c) Nothing submitted. Again.
Reading - Read something inspiring - MET. Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam, the final book in the trilogy of same name. I am in awe of her ability to weave together flashbacks and information about the world she's created without having it plod along, everything done in such a way as to maintain my attention the whole time. Something to aspire to.
- Participate in #writeclub on Twitter every Friday - MET! Omg I actually did it! Participated in 3 sprints on Friday & got some words down. Also ran a couple sprints of my own earlier in the week to help me buckle down. I really do find that sprinting with people gives me that little extra push I need when I'm trying to decide between writing and doing anything else at all.
- Continue to attend readings - NOT MET. The thing about the Camino de Santiago was crowded past capacity, so instead I rented the movie Beautiful Creatures and went home to watch it. While the movie was better than I expected (the young man Alden Ehrenreich did a great job), I again felt like I was missing out on a lot.
- Read and comment on at least 3 other ROW80 participants' check-ins each week - NOT MET. Due to aforementioned writing-intensive week, during which I pretty much excused myself from all other responsibilities.
- 15 minutes/day of freewriting, recording dreams and/or journaling (good for my mental health) - PARTIALLY MET. Recorded dreams on 3 mornings. No freewriting outside of the WIP I was focusing on.
- Exercise for at least an hour a day - MOSTLY MET. There were a couple days when I only walked for half an hour due to time constraints, but on Saturday I took a 2-hr hike with my dad and I also practiced Tai Chi three days this week on top of taking Milton for a walk, so it all evens out, right?
