Writing Check-In: Week Ending 27 June 2010

Somehow, I've managed to stick to my minimum of 500-words a day almost every day this week. It wasn't even conscious, either. But having my Writer's Accountability Chart (aka bulletin board) desk-side as well as adding it back into the right-hand sidebar there –> has kept me on track.

So, I only managed just under 3000 words this week, which isn't earth-shattering by any means, but I refuse to make myself feel guilty for not doing more. After all, that takes all the fun out of it!

I didn't hit every goal I set out for myself last Sunday, so I resolve to make up for it this week. Besides, Summer t.v. is terrible except for True Blood on Sunday nights, so I see myself doing much better this summer overall.

How I Kicked It This Week:

  • met my goal of hitting a minimum of 500-words almost each day (with over 1K on Friday)
  • policed myself better in terms of playing games, chatting and such when I should be writing (hence the improved word count)

What I Need To Improve:

  • missed a few of my blog days this week (but I suppose quality is better than quantity)
  • Looking at my WAC, I need to read more! I have tons to read, just need to make more time for it

Goals for the Coming Week:

  • much more brainstorming, outlining for various projects
  • cut the cord on this short story already and move onto something shiny & new

How did you do with your goals last week? What are you hoping to tackle this week?

Writing Check-in: Week Ending 20 June 2010

It's been a while since I did one of my weekly writing check-ins. I miss 'em! And it really does help me stay on track by putting the info out there instead of simply keeping it all in my head. Even if no one else calls me on my slacking, these posts sort of do. A virtual nudging from myself, if you will. So, here we go.

State of the WIPs:

  • completed the first draft of my tweet-inspired tale (tentatively titled Graveyard Shift at The Institute)
  • did some brainstorming for my WeSeWriMo project
  • took a look at one of my NaNo 2010 stories, hoping to submit it to Red Penny Papers

What I Did Well:

  • got back on track with my WAC
  • spent some "Me Time" reading (aka feeding the creative Muse)

What I Can Improve Upon:

  • trying to get back into hitting a 500-word minimum at the very least (I'm o.k. with this when polishing up a WIP, but would prefer a 1KDay when working on something new)
  • try not to get stuck on the perpetual Twitter refresh too often :)
  • socializing seems to be either feast or famine for me. Would like to balance this out more so I can interact and bond (instead of drive-by hellos) with my peeps without sacrificing too much writing time

All in all, it was a good week. Not great…but these things wax and wane so I'm determined to get more accomplished next week.

How did you do with your goals last week? What are you hoping to tackle this week?
