January 27, 2013

In many ways,  it was a great week.

Freelance Goals

~ complete co-writing manuscript with Roger (possibly by the end of Round 1) (Our brainstorming session [aka phone call] was fuel for some great ideas, both of which I hope to have fired off by Wednesday at the latest.)

*NEW ~ edit Michael’s second manuscript (I am over-the-moon to be working with Michael.)

~ work with Pirkko to bring her novel from idea to submittable manuscript (This will likely take the whole year.) (to begin in February)

Writing Goals (this round)

~ blog/post six times per week including ROW check-ins (I’m doing better, but I haven’t achieved my weekly goal yet.)

~ blogging to include at least one book review per month (January’s review has been posted.)

~ weekly blog posts for Monday Motivation (on track)

~ write at least one paper for my certification course (one of these days)

~ write two guest posts per month (It’s time to back this off to one guest post per month.)

~ polish a picture book manuscript every other month (Let’s go for February.)

~ write a short piece for a paying market each month (Four days to go and counting.)

Submission Goals (ongoing)

~ guest post (There are still four days to make this happen.)

~ picture book manuscript (February)

~ short piece (It’s time to check the Chicken Soup site again.)

~ read one book per month (I’m reading Shah Wharton’s Finding Esta and Kevin Albright’s Finding My Father.)

ROW-Specific Goals

~ pop by a number of my fellow ROWers sites each week (doin’ okay)

~ visit the ROW FB pages (occasionally)

Fitness Goals

~ choose new music for class (I’m listening to one of the CDs right now. I probably won’t use it, but it’s fun. It’s called the “Roots of Rock N’ Roll.”)

~ do more cardio (one day)

~ visit the gym two to three times a week (So much for the motivation of paying a bi-weekly fee.)

~ visit my trainer once per week until I’m done my sessions (She is pleased with my progress and that pleases me.)

~ eat better (It’s coming.)

~ drink more water (Thank you, Eden, for suggesting I drink more herbal tea. Great idea!)

~ eat dessert only on the weekend, if at all (Not exactly . . . but I am doing better.)

If you’d like to chat between check-ins, pop by the Facebook group. And if fitness goals made the list for 2013, we’d love to have you over at the ROW80 Fitness group.
