ROW80: Not Bad

This week’s ROW80 goals were a mixed bag. I’d forgotten to take into consideration that my RWA chapter was having a long workshop on Saturday, so that cut into my goal time. I also missed a workout, but that’s not bad. Here’s how it went:

  • Format and upload Home for the Holidays anthology if all materials are received – I got the last story and sent out to the authors to review. Didn’t get that back until Friday night, but I still managed to get the ebook formatting done. Didn’t upload, but that’s because I decided to wait until the print version was up, so I’m going to consider this one Done.
  • Physical activity 5x this week – Not quite – but I got 4x in.
  • Hangar 18 – re-order scenes (this was probably the biggest revision), and print out for markup – Done!
  • Get it Together exercises 13 & 14 – No
  • I also got some more outlining done on a “just for me” project that I may write for NaNoWriMo

Here are my overall goals for this round:

  • Format and release OVRWA holiday story anthology – moving along!
  • Revise Hangar 18 – revisions/markup started
  • Keep up with my exercise, five times a week. – ongoing
  • Finish the Get It Together exercises (description of that here) – completed sections 3 – 12
For this week, I’d like to:
  • Format Home for the Holidays print book, and if proof received, OK and upload ebooks.
  • Physical activity 5x this week
  • Hangar 18 – review and markup Chapters 1-3
  • Get it Together exercises 13 & 14

  1. Beautifully organized — and excellent progress! I like how your goals show both macro and micro levels easily. Now may your Nanowrimo go well and your proof lead to quick pubbing.

  2. I think it’s tough to get exercise done this time of year, so nice work on that goal. Something I’m loving about Row80 so far is meeting all these great new writers/bloggers and finding out what they’re up to. I get a lot of motivation from being around people and hearing about their goals. It’s energizing somehow. Thanks for posting and well done!

  3. Louise, thanks! (And I love that saying. 🙂 )

    Thanks, Beth! I have to break down the big goals into weekly goals, or I’d never get anything accomplished.

    Thanks, Alberta!

    Jae, I find it hard to get exercise anytime. 🙂 The only reason I get it in most of the time is because I read on the treadmill – and that is sometimes what motivates me to do it!

  4. I just love coming here and seeing how you track your goals. It’s inspiring that you just plug along and check things off. Good for you, Jennette! Best wishes with the Home for the Holidays project!
