Weekly Total: 6,391 words
Compared to last week’s 8,894 words, this week hasn’t been nearly as productive. And I had my first zero of the year on Friday the 13th, which I guess is sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy, since I’m a teensy bit superstitious. It was also a full moon, none of which really excuses my lack of writing yesterday. Indeed, I chalk this zero up more to the fact that:
a) I didn’t do my writing first thing in the morning, as I usually like to, and
b) I was running a bunch of errands and didn’t even get to eat lunch until 4 PM.
So yeah, things were a little ridiculously hectic. I should’ve been writing after I got home, but I got sidetracked by various other things, and thus ended up with a big old zero to close out the week.
Set: Finish edits on Careers in Digital Media by Friday the 13th, write my second #52essays2017 and share it with the Facebook group, rewrite my “P is for Pop Songs” post so I can publish it this week, write a “First Lines Friday” post, post a check-in image in the Accountability Group and see how my Accountabilibuddies are doing.
Met: Wrote my second essay (“Notes from 20 years of life online”) and shared it with the group, wrote and posted my First Lines Friday piece (on Trevor Noah’s Born A Crime), and I’m off to post my check-in image as soon as I finish this blog!
Missed: Missed my deadline for edits, as this week was particularly crazy, and didn’t get a chance to rewrite my “P is for Pop Songs” post.
