#ROW80: A good week in one day

First, the update:

  • Write 30 minutes a day: I did something yesterday that I haven’t done in some time: I wrote a story, or at least 90% of a first draft of one. It’s pretty rough, and I know it’s missing a lot and some parts have to be changed. But it was 4000+ words and took me over 3 hours, meaning I got my writing in for the week yesterday. Be nice if I spread it out over the whole week, but I’ll take it.
  • Read 30 minutes a day: Not quite 30 minutes a day, but I continued reading West of Western on Monday and got about 90 minutes in. So 42.9% done.
  • Clean my office: I think I’m going about this the wrong way because it’s worse than it had been. Maybe it’ll get clean if I make this “Make a huge mess of my office.”

Nothing to report on the disability front, where I’ve been promised that I’ll see something by maybe April. Maybe sooner, maybe later.

The closer I get to getting the website up, the more I ask myself, “Is this really what you want to do?” I wonder if the time I spend creating the wbsite might not be better used doing something else, like writing. I guess there’s only one way to find out, isn’t there?

Best of luck this coming week. Until next week, straight ahead.

  1. I cleaned my office up around New Year’s and it’s still looking good . . . except for several far-too-quickly growing piles of stuff to-do. Kudos on getting some real writing done, even if it came all on one day. May the week ahead bring you more words!


  2. Meeting your writing goal for an entire week in one day? Oh, how I envy you! And I don’t even want to think about cleaning my office, although the stacks of papers are getting perilously high.

    Have a great week!


    1. Sometimes I’m afraid to throw paper out because I’m worried that, the minute I throw a paper out out, I’ll need it. I should get a scanner and scan eveything, then throw it away immediately.


  3. Awesome work on the story! I have weeks like that, too, where I just don’t get to the writing at all–too tired, too busy, or just don’t feel like it–then on Saturday I blow through the whole goal. LOL @ “making your office messier”–good luck with it, and have a great week!
