For the past few days I’ve been thinking about my goals for December, and next year. What do I want to accomplish? What would I like to change? What do I need to work on? The ideas come to me so it’s time to make a list:
Write every day, whether it is 1000 words or 2000 words, I need to write every day.
Writing: 750 words/morning pages, journal, novel, blog
Art Journal: December prompts #onebookdecember
Organize the closet in my writing room
Clean out my desk and organize
Get Mr. Viktor’s Christmas present
Get Mr. Rockstar’s Christmas present
Work on outline/storyboard
Make a schedule for videos and blog posts. (Figure out whether I want to make writing videos once or twice a week, art journal video once a week, random coffee chat video once a week, which would equal 4 videos a week, perhaps talk about books I’ve read or am reading in the coffee chat video. Now just to figure out which days of the week for what…)
Finish Novel by the end of January, mid February.
Participate in NaNoEdMo in March.
Get new glasses (save money).
Start DIY house projects in January.
That’s a good start. I’m not finished, but I’ve got some of the basics down. Now it’s time to get those ideas down in my journal and fine tune them into small to large goals, and make a To Do list.
It’s been a rough week. I’ve been sick for the past few days, finally starting to feel better though. Writing while you’re sick is like going to work with a hangover the size of Mt. Rushmore. I don’t know how I managed to do it, but I did. I didn’t get the word count I wanted, but I did manage to write at least 1000 words each day that I was sick, which is saying something. **Patting myself on the back.**
I’ve still got my buffer for Thanksgiving, but it set me back by a day–I needed a two day buffer for the Saturday after Thanksgiving as well. Oh well, I guess I’m going to have to get on the ball then and write.
I’ve created videos the past few days and it’s been especially rough–you know you’re sick when you don’t drink coffee first thing in the morning and drink orange juice instead, or when you make a video and don’t bother to put makeup on–in my defense, I’ve been sick and it’s NaNoWriMo. 😀
I’m not vain, I just figure if I’m going to bother with filming a video I could at least make myself presentable… being sick changes what you consider presentable–I was clean, had on clean pajamas, and had brushed my teeth–presentable. LOL!
The first day I was sick I tried the opposite method: Dressed up in hopes that if I didn’t wallow in being sick I might feel better–that only worked when the medication kicked in, once the medication started wearing off I was right back in pajamas.
I’m going to get back to writing now, I’ve got two scenes to write so I can get to the next chapter, which is a major conflict chapter and one I’m really looking forward to. 😀
