Another Thursday zero! This one I’m chalking up to being double-booked at my day job, which meant that I got up at 4 in the morning to get stuff finished by my deadline, and then fell asleep super early before I even had a chance to write up a crappy journal entry.
Set: Write 30 pages for the Book In A Week monthly challenge (aka 7,500 words),write a new “Pop Songs” essay, catch up on InCoWriMo and write one letter per day.
Met: None of the above!
Missed: Well, it looks like what I thought would be easily doable goals for this week have, so far, not been achieved. I haven’t written 7,500 words yet (although I still have until Sunday at midnight to do so), nor have I written a new “Pop Songs” essay. I haven’t caught up on InCoWriMo letters, or even written one per day. In short, my goals for this week have so far not been met, and having another Thursday zero is really starting to piss me off.
On the plus side, this week I won a couple of badges from the 365 Club! Here they are:
As you scan see, these are the January Monthly Badge (for reaching my word count goal of 1,000 words/day) and the Red Pencil Badge (for 10 hours worth of editing).
Goals for Next Week
Since my goals this week were a little too ambitious – or maybe just not very well scheduled – I’m going to try something different this week. I’m going to make a DAILY list of goals to achieve. Here’s what I’ve got so far…
