ROW80 10/16 Check-In
Going for the Scream!
On Sunday, we finished up our decorating for the Halloween house decorating contest. We have small touches (like the green light bulb for the porch light we got yesterday) to do. And we got to do them fast! Judging is the 18th & 19th, Wish us luck!!!
Oh, yeah… Last year I did tons of photos. This year, I’m thinking of doing a video to share what we did. One day and one night. Videos take up less real estate on the blog than picture after picture…
This Past Week in Goals
Even though I spent most of Sunday with fake cobwebs, I spent the rest of the week getting stuff done. On the 10th/Thursday, I finished outlining TJ. I figured that meant I deserved Friday off, as the pre-writing packet went from 1,500 words/12 pages (not filled in) to 13,000 words/39 pages (filled in). So, Monday I decided to finish up the books sitting on coffee table (FRANKENSTEIN and MUSEUM OF THIEVES).
As for my studying goal, I met it. Blog visits went off without a hitch. Exercise goal? Not so much. I could claim back issues, which I am having. But, that wasn’t it. Rather than do my 20 minutes of Zumba on Monday, I chose to finish the second book. If I had done the Zumba, I would have met my goal. I made a choice. (Not sure if that was a good or bad choice, to be honest.)
This Coming Week in Goals
If you look at my October goals, you’ll notice that there is just one more thing to do (aside from weekly exercise, studying, and visits). I need to finish the rough draft for FLAMES. I’m not sure if I’ll push for more words per day at this point. That’s supposed to be a November thing. So, instead I’ll say I need to write 7k this week (more than I need to finish, I think). That number is based on my end of last round 1,750 per writing session.
What are you doing to celebrate Halloween?
Have you had to make a “choice” this week too?
Is there a goal you want to start sooner than you planned/intended to?
