And another week comes to a close.
Here are the “FAR” goals I established for this round of ROW80:
F-INISHING works in progress by adding >500 weekly new words, net.
A-DDING >1000 weekly new words to works with 10k words or less to them, and
R-EVISING two works for submission (converting one from adult to new adult and editing one based on feedback.) by tackling at least ONE chapter per week.
Here’s what I did so far this week:
FINISHING: 130 words written for Mismatched Irregulars and Seconds. I was a wee bit sluggish here. Been in a bit busy at work and now that the Olympics are on…well…okay, I’m allowing it since I barely watched the Summer Olympics two years ago because I was too caught up in writing. I love the Olympics. This week, this goal had to give a little. (weekly goal not met)
ADDING: Wrote a Valentine’s Day short story for a blog hop. Not quite what I originally had in mind for this goal, but it’s a complete story at least and it was started from scratch AND it’s a continuation of a story begun in a previously published anthology. Word count was 1500. (weekly goal met)
REVISING: 1 chapter edited (weekly goal met)
Thanks to all my visitors and commenters. 🙂
F.A.R. goals… I like that acronym. It has the ring of looking into the future while being direct and not too overwhelming. And yeah, I suspect a lot of people will be watching the Olympics more than they “planned”. My husband and I were given a night of kid-sitting by his parents so we could enjoy a date… For our nightcap… we watched the women’s figure skating. So, I certainly have nothing critical to say about not meeting that goal.
Thanks, Eden. Yeah, I’ve been loving the Olympics, short track speed skating, half-pipe and downhill skiing. I’m not even going to worry about my goals for a bit.
Ditto what Eden said: I like the FAR acronym and idea. And yup, some of my time is going to the Olympics. But they’re a limited time offer, and I hate to miss ’em! Hope your week runs well!
Good point, Joe. Thank you for that reminder that they’re a limited time offer. I think I’ll just sit back and enjoy them and give the goals a rest for a week or so then get back on board. 🙂
