As one of the Wee Free Men would say, “Oh waily, waily, waily!” Let’s skip all the usual weird today and get down to me messing up the one goal I had to keep, but didn’t.
It was such a simple goal:
“Take on no new writing projects.”
And I had fought it! Temptation! C sent me a link, which spells doom for me 2 out of 3 times. I got this insane(ly awesome) idea about a visual Urban Fantasy novel. I didn’t fall prey to them!
But then I got this idea, for the sake of the post let’s call it S.A.H.T.M. And… And… Guys, I messed up. It isn’t like it was a small slip either. Now, that I started this… (y_-)* Can’t stop this project. Must continue. Or it would have been pointless slipping in the first place and the work I started would turn useless.
So how will I deal with it? Even though I failed that goal, it is staying up. Don’t want to make a situation worse. Also, regarding S.A.H.T.M. I shall say no more about it. Can’t brag on progress and so forth. No, it will remain a silent (but deadly?) in the shadows project (like the evil ninja it is)… for now.
That’s enough goal fail. Let’s do some goal win! That steampunk 3k short story is done. And while I’d love to do a half cross off of the goal (can’t do to the edit last week), I want to wait to cross off the whole thing. To cross it off the list I need another break. I need some space from it. Now, that reminds me…
I have this “thing” that I totally forgot to factor into ROW80. But I need time to deal with it. Since the only goal I could possibly work on is Fire!!! (and I’m still indecisive on that), I’ll be taking a tiny break from ROW80. I’m going to try to keep the break short. For sure, expect no check-in Wednesday, but I’ll definitely let you know next Sunday what stage I’m at (back on the saddle or still messing with the overlooked).
To the other ROWers out there, wishing you the best. Do them goals up! 🙂
