Let's look at the goals:
- Lesson Learned - I wrote some on what Voice means to me yesterday. I'll point to that as my lesson for the week: a deeper understanding of Voice and its importance to my writing.
- WIP - I've made some more progress on my short story to the tune of 6 pages. That's right on target. I think I'd officially setting the pace at 1 page/day with two days off, so I'm technically one page ahead, but short story writing is quicker than when I'm working on a novel.
- Blogging - 4/3 on the gaming blog and this will make 4/3 here. I threw up a personal post as well, just in time for the month to flip. I've got another one in the hopper for Feb, too, so I'm good there.
Goals are good. Progress is good. Weekend is going to be rough, but at least I've gotten all my work in order so that I can focus on the important thing: family. If you're like me, then this is important. Despite my best intentions, I would angst about my writing progress all weekend even with completely valid excuses. It's better, then, to work with my nature instead of against. Get the work done early; get it out of the way.
That's all for now. Let's check out the word count:
- Since last check in (two weeks): 5,057
- New Fiction: 1,711
- Round 1 Total: 27,963
