Progress Report



I’m completely stressed out tonight, because I’ve been rushing around for 2 days trying to get ready for an upcoming trip and finish up the large amount of work I have on my plate. Why does everything get so hectic all of a sudden? (And right when you want it to slow down?) And what’s with the laundry? I want to leave everyone with clean clothes, but they seem to multiply every time I throw a load in the wash. Heaven help me!

So I’m going to keep it simple today. Progress report: Very slow this week. I didn’t hit my 2 hour/day goal, but I did at least look at my book every day. With work slowing down, that amount should increase this week. The ladies who have joined me on this journey are knocking it out of the park!!! I’ve been so impressed and inspired. Y’all keep up the good work!

And since I’m low on things to say this week, I’ll leave y’all with a little eye candy to ogle. I'm sure you'd prefer that to me rambling on... and on... and on...

Angel: safe travels and hope the laundry doesn't overwhelm you--it's never ending.

I think you did well to look at your work and play around with it this week. My goals are not even length of time as much as just forcing myself to get my head into the book once a day even if it is just for half an hour.

I'll need you when DH goes in for his surgery! I plan to bring my computer to the hospital so I can write while he's under the knife.

Hang in there, Angel, and enjoy your trip!

I haven't felt the energetic burst toward my writing that I had hoped this year. But there is some snail-like forward momentum... Trying to stay focused and not get lost in the shuffle.

I completely understand, Christine ! When anything major like that happens in my life, my writing output goes to pot. We'll help keep you on track.

Crystal, just keep it up! I know how frustrating that forward progress is, but it will add up! I'm right there with you. I worked for an hour this morning & didn't make much forward progress, but I'm getting there. I can see the shape forming.

2010 hasn't quite ramped up the way I'd hoped either. I think I'm just going to start the year over come February.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I can usually find my get-up-and-go, but this feels different somehow. Will definitely keep plugging away - anything forward is good, right?

However, I like the idea of starting the year over. Yeah, a do over...
