With Round 1 of A Round of Words in 80 Days winding up, it’s time to see how I’ve done.
Laura’s manuscript ~ done
Carolyn’s manuscript ~ a few names to chance come Monday, then done
Deb’s manuscript ~ done and proposal in the hands of a publisher
First Editor for the Write! On news bulletin – ongoing
Other jobs have come along, but I’ll touch on those come Round 2.
Deb’s manuscript ~ see above
Essay and research paper ~ new deadline (March 31)
First draft of children’s chapbook ~ The first draft can still be done by the end of June, I’ll just have to get cracking.
Two picture books per month ~ I have to get back at it.
Revised blogging schedule ~ I fell behind a little in March, but all in all, I’m not doing too badly.
Four items per month ~ market research improving; actually submitting needs work, lots of work
Skills Development ~ complete one book, or the equivalent, every other month (nope)
Reading for my course ~ to be done by the end of February (How about the end of March?)
Blogging for Books ~ read one book per month (yep)
Booksneeze ~ read one book per month (yep…might give this one up)
~ pretty much on track
Exercise & Fitness
Thirty minutes six times per week ~ tee hee, tee hee hee (I’m re-starting Kimberley Payne’s Fit for Faith on Monday. Things are looking up.)
Eat better ~ some, but not as good as it should be (says she wiping the chocolate bar remnants from her face)
Row Specific Goals
Check in twice per week ~ batting a thousand
Stop by fellow ROWers’ sites every Monday or Thursday ~ You are now allowed to hit me with a bat. Sorry, folks. I’ll do better for Round 2.
Continue connecting with my writing buddy regularly ~ It has been very informal, but our occasional hello-how-ya-doin’ times have encouraged us both. See ya in Round 4, WB.
If you want to join the fun, sign up here for Round 2.
How about you? Was Round 1 all you’d hoped it would be?
