Goal List Week Commencing 21st October 2012
Things I did
The walking went well until Wednesday, I got out every other day, then I didn't get another opportunity until Saturday, on the whole though I'm happy with my progress.
Writing wise, I wrote and entered a piece of flash fiction to 'The Times Short Story Competition', edited a story I want to send to The People's Friend magazine, wrote two of the three blog posts I had planned, attended my writers group, and judged a flash fiction competition. I didn't have time or energy to write the novel outline.
I had cake twice! Coffee and Walnut on Wednesday, and Chocolate Truffle cake on Friday. I call that an excellent result!
A complete fail on the sleep front though...
Things I did better over the last seven days
I spent less time on Twitter
I remembered to write what I've done in my writing journal
Things I want to do this week
Continue with my walking, I can't add anymore time, so perhaps I can quicken my pace.
Take some 'Me Time' at least an hour a day, for the next seven days. This is a tall order, but I'm going to try. Walking doesn't count, I see that as keeping fit and well!
On the writing front, I really need to get started on the revised outline. As well as doing some research, and doing my piece for the writers group meeting. Oh, and I'm setting up a 'Subs Club' at the writers group, (specifically for members who want to submit work for publication, or competition) once a month, beginning in November, so I need to do some groundwork for that too!
Sleep. Maybe I can combine this with 'Me' time. You would think all the walking and writing late at night would tire me, wouldn't you?
Things that might get in the way
Procrastination, it creeps up on me and sets in if I don't watch it, so I'll have to keep moving forward with the list, and putting a cross through what I've done. That usually weakens it!
Work! The day job keeps spilling over into my time. Not good, I shall have to be very strict there, and start taking control. Saying 'No' to stuff would be a good start.
What have you been successful at this week? What makes you feel happy that you got it done, and what does the week ahead hold? Do let me know...
