ROW80 4/17 Check-In
This week has been full of good. Last Friday a new song by an artist I like came out (check my Monday link at the bottom to hear it). At the end of last week, I helped spread the word about Peter Smalley’s new novel EMERALD CITY BLUES (I love helping authors out). Saturday, I fed my vegan friend food (this is a long story that involves righting some wrongs). Monday, I made a deal with a friend that will get me surprise books in the mail. Yesterday, Jae interviewed me on her blog, Lit and Scribbles (she’s the awesomest). Just lots of things that made me happy and were good.
However, a couple of things got me thinking this week about my social media schedule. I lost some writing time to social media moments this past week… Not cool. I had a thought about this at the start of the year, too. I almost worked out a whole schedule because I wanted to ensure my writing time. But, I thought it would have been to much to put on myself at the time. I’m not sure I’m ready to do anything about it now either. I’m just thinking on it. Thinking really hard.
Anyways, it’s that time again! Time to tell you how things went this week with my goals!
Obviously good, right? I mean look at that there! –>>
This week I visited 3 (last Wednesday) and 6 (Sunday) ROWer blogs. To be honest, I visited more than that, because I don’t count blogs I already follow regularly as part of that number. I spent four lunches studying this week, three Japanese language study and one English grammar. That means I met the minimum for those goals.
I had wanted to cross off (at least in part) one of my To Do List Goals. A change in my schedule caused me to miss out on that. So To Do List Goals remain the same. Boo!
Will This week be as good? Yes, but only if I stick with the plan!
I’m still working on FLAMES ( not a surprise since I just started it). Now, my goal for this week should be 5,500 words. But you saw that meter! I’m skipping a week in my word count increase schedule. This week’s goal shall be 6,000.
#2- Procrastination List Cross Off
Let’s give this another try, okay? Maybe I’ll have better luck with it this week.
#3- Experiment D
I’m not starting this yet. But I need to have it ready to start soon. If I wait any longer I’ll miss the window of scheduled finish it.
#4- Exercise Smarter
I was scrambling to get all my calories burned. I need to approach it with more of a plan. And for the love of my calves, I need to do my yoga before I go running!
Do you have a social media schedule?
How do you balance social media and writing?
Ever get ahead of your plan/goals?
