#ROW80 and NTS check-in 05/13

May 13, 2012 #ROW80, NTS 11

Hello friends! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the moms out there!

If you’re here and don’t know what ROW80 is, check it out here. This is also my update for Noveling Through Summer.

Also, check out the cover reveal of the Cynthia Cooke’s new book posted earlier this morning.

Here are my goals (and how I’m doing):

  • Organize my new home and my new schedule. Done. We bought two new bookcases Saturday, one for me and one for my daughter. So far, she loves books!
  • Once my life is normal again (or almost), find a gym and exercise 3 times per week. Twice only. I totally forgot  about my daughter’s mother’s day concert on Thursday and almost went to the gym instead lol
  • Participate on Crafting the Sensual Novella Workshop from April 9th to May 6th. Done.
  • Finish revising my novel, DESTINY GIFT. Done.
  • Start a new novel or novella and get as far as I can with it. I wrote a few chapters in or 6,500 words. If you know me, you know this is a low word count for me. As someone who has the entire afternoon to write, I should get at lest 3,500 per day … but it’s been so hard to focus lately. I have been so bleh … no reason, though, life is going well, family is great, health is okay, so why have I been feeling down? And the more I try to push writing, the more I feel like my writing sucks LOL Anyway, I know it’s a temporary feeling and hopefully I’ll feel much better this week and write more and more ;)
  • In June, participate of the JuNoWriMo. I’m thinking about rewriting Gypsy Heart (curious? See the projects tab on top).
  • Read 5 books each month (year total = 60). On track.
  • Social network: blog at least once a week (not counting #ROW80 checkins), comment on blogs every other day, and tweet a little everyday. Done.

And that’s it for now.

    New bookcases, woo! That means you can buy more books, hehe. I just checked out Row80, it sounds great! Thanks for sharing your progress. It sounds like your doing really well actually. If writing is starting to feel bleh, and you are feeling down then maybe its time to take a day to refresh and do some inspiring things.

    Best Wishes,

    It’s all subjective I know, but 6500 is awesome and you have taken on quite a lot these days. Have you pat yourself on the back recently? No, okay, I’ll wait, do it right now :)

    Wow, you had a fabulous week. A few weeks ago, things were pretty up in the air and now you’re kicking butt and taking names, girlfriend! You’ll be way past 6500 before you know it! Happy Mother’s Day and have a lovely week.

    Only 6500, hmm, all things in perspective, that is still a fantastic amount of progress. I’m sure things will pick up for you even more during June.

    Excellent job on your goals – Have a fantastic week, Juliana :)

    I know it’s hard to focus some days. Have you tried to keep yourself on track by writing in 10-15 min sprints? That’s typically good for focus and after 10-15 is up, you get up and do something else until your next sprint. Good luck!
