I finally have interesting things to talk about!
For starters, yesterday I allowed myself to indulge in cake. See, my friend (Former Basement Troll) has his birthday this week, so when he came to visit I gave him some glazed doughnut muffins (extras from Friday’s cheat dinner) and the cake of his choice (tiramisu). It was a token of “thanks for surviving another year of life and being our friend.” Two days of baking yummy, new-to-me things was fun!
That last thing didn’t interfere with my usual writing stuff, but this next bit did. See, my other friend didn’t want a stranger in his house, so he asked me if in the afternoon, Monday through Friday, I could take his elderly dog out (to stretch his doggy legs and do his doggy business). Of course I said yes. (And you’re not surprised either, I know.) But, that said, this doggy moment is during my usual writing time and there have been ripples in my routine. I just let this week happen to see how bad it was and next week I’ll start adjusting.
Last note worthy things are goal related. I finished HAMSTER draft 2 on Wednesday. Thursday should have been my day off, but I ended up starting a (currently two page) synopsis for GRANDMA, because I forgot to do that when setting up all the query stuff for it. (D’OH!) I’ve been working on that since. I hope to have it polished by today or tomorrow. And, lastly, I had to adjust my reading goal regarding JEM issue #2 because it doesn’t come to my local comic shop until the 29th. So I just listed the issues by month rather than date, because things are not entirely in my control here.
And now, my recently active goals:
HIGHEST PRIORITY GOALS
Work On Writing (Almost) Everyday
Sub Goal: HAMSTER Read through for fixes (4/11 – 4/22) Started (4/10) & Done (4/15)
and Draft 2 (4/24 – 4/29) Started (4/17) & Done (4/22)
Added Goal: GRANDMA Synopsis (added 4/23)

Sub Goal: JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS ISSUE #2 (April), #3 (May), & #4 (June)
Sub Goal: Get in extra reading 2 times a week. 0/2
Sub Goal: On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 5/5
Sub Goal: To burn 1750 calories per week. 1860
LOWEST PRIORITY GOALS
Be a Good ROWer
Sub Goal: Visit 2 (or more) blogs per check-in that I’m not subscribed to. 1/2
Sub Goal: Visit the blogs each check-in that I am subscribed to. As Sub Goal above… So here.
I think I’m going to use the time between finishing the synopsis and ALCHEMY read through (5/1) to sort my schedule so it once again works. I’ll also use it to catch up on reading and maybe a bonus goal or two.
