#ROW80 Round 2 Goals

I’m a bit late posting my goals. I’ve been really busy with the edits on Ever Touched. I’m jumping in now!

I have fewer goals this go around to limit my stress level. I’ve been very stressed out in the past few months and need a break from it all.

So here are my goals:

~Publish Ever Touched on May 1st (on track to complete as of right now)
~Add 10k to Covenant
~Start formulating a plan for Fireborn (looks like a rewrite as of right now)
~Drink a glass of water 5x a week
~Start working on FYFB class once things settle down

And that’s it! No exercise-related goals yet because I seem to have reinjured my knee. 😦 Once that gets worked out, I may add an exercise-related goal to the mix.

I would also like to add in some mental downtime per week. I’m not making it an official goal, but we’ll see once Ever Touched is published. I had some of that with Guild Wars, but since I’ve been so busy with edits and such, I haven’t been able to play this week at all. So we will see on that as well.

And, as usual, the famous chocolate consumption report.

 

#ROW80 Round 1 2017 Goals

It’s 2017! Time to declare my ROW80 Round 1 Goals. I have a lot of goals for this year, but I need to start small and slow, as Ever Touched will be the focus and priority this round. My secondary goal is to publish 1 more book this year as well.

Here they are:

~Finish Ever Touched 2nd round edits
~Finalize Ever Touched cover art
~Start on a blurb
~After Ever Touched is finished, start Fireborn revision
~Add 5k to Covenant (using 8 minute writing if possible)
~Continue FYFB class (I’m so horribly behind now, it’s not even funny!)
~Eat healthier/lose 5 pounds
~Restart transferring Survivor Rewrite outline to Scrivener
~Exercise: housewalking 3x per week
~Water – 1 glass 5 days per week
~Chocolate consumption reports of course!

I think that’s it for now. Here we go!

#ROW80 Round 4 2016 Goals

Happy Round 4 ROWers! Dang, what happened to the year? It’s almost over!

Here are my goals. I am trying to keep things simple and relaxed, as I have a revision due to my editor on 12/1 and I suspect I might end up wanting to take a break. But I would like to do something, so I may choose a project and go slow with it for the rest of the round.

I am still feeling exhausted, and I seem to be in another fibro flare, so I need to concentrate on taking care of myself. Meditation, trying not to stress, and earlier bed times will hopefully help. πŸ™‚

Here are my goals:

~Finish the Ever Touched revision. Β I can do this. πŸ™‚
~Stay on top of FYFB class. Taking a class through Monica Leonelle. It happens to be going on at the same time as my revision, but might as well go all in. It’s three months. Should be fun. πŸ™‚
~Make a ruling on my next project and start prepping (contenders are Fireborn, which needs a revision, Survivor, which needs a rewrite, and Death Dancer, which needs some tweaking — and may be my next Turtleduck Press release.)
~Drink 1 glass of water 5x a week
~Exercise 2x a week
~Do All the Things related to anthology release (TBD — release is Nov 15th)
~Keep up on reviews (I’m on 4 ARC teams)
~Lose 5 pounds.
~Take more pictures: infrared and normal.
~Post-process infrared pics from camping trip
~Chocolate consumption report, as always!

Annnd that’s it. Good luck everyone!

 

#ROW80 Round 2 Goals

Round 2 of A Round of Words in 80 Days begins today! I think I’m a lifer. I have never accomplished so much than when I’ve been ROWing. Accountability is an important part of my process.

Round 1 went well. I was hit with fatigue issues toward the end, but I get almost everything done! So I’m hoping for another productive round!

Here are my goals:

~Finish rough draft of Ever Touched.
~If there’s time, start planning Fireborn revision.
~Continue logging outline for Survivor into Scrivener.
~Reinstate 8 minutes a day of a first draft again/make progress on Covenant
~Make prints of the film I developed yesterday (my test roll).
~Experiment with digital infrared
~Plot Elysium
~Clean office
~Continue #AprilLove2016 when possible
~Exercise 2x a week
~Drink 1 glass of water every day.

There’s a chance things may need to get shuffled around pending any editing jobs or small projects for TDP, so I’m going to try to be flexible. But these are the things I hope to accomplish this round.

#ROW80 Round 1 2016 Goals

I can’t believe how quickly 2015 passed by. Blink and you miss it, seriously! It is unbelievable. But here we are, the 3rd day of the new year, and a new round of ROW80 (A Round of Words in 80 Days). I’ve been participating in ROW80 for the past 2 years because it keeps me producing and accountable, two things I desperately need.

So, without further adieu, here are my goals:

~Finish revision of Pirouette for submission to publisher (currently on page 203 of 243, but don’t let that fool you. I have a few plot holes to fill.)
~Write synopsis (first time doing that!)
~Submit to publisher by 1/31
~Finish Fireborn first draft (Reaper Girl novella, 19k of 25k currently)
~Make progress on Covenant, secondary WIP
~Log in planner goals + to dos every day/every month (trying something new!)
~Physical activity: 15 mins 3x a week (anything that gets me moving counts!)
~After Pirouette revision is finished, 8 minutes of focused writing per day on a first draft of my choice (another new thing).
~Develop test roll of b&w film

So, I think that will keep me moving. Here’s to another great new year!
