Every Monday, we’re posting our weekly targets, aiming to achieve them by the end of play on Friday.
This week, Sue and Laura posted their aims. How did they do?
Sue aimed to:
- To write three chapters.
- To successfully negotiate the first week back at school by remembering all the after-school clubs that are starting back up and packing the appropriate equipment/kit for not only the right club but the right child.
- Get up extra early on Monday to wish DS a happy birthday, before we all go our separate ways for the day.
- Be at my desk ready to write from 09:00 Mon-Thurs.
- Write 5000 words by Friday evening.
- Plan talk for the Weymouth Leviathan and Maritime Festival.
- Have earlier nights to allow for reading time.
Laura: I managed Monday’s targets and DS had a lovely day. I’ve also been ready to start work at 09:00, so I’m pleased with that.
I’ve not advanced the wip or planned my Weymouth Leviathan talk, but I did have news of a talk for the Weymouth Civic Society, which is happening on the 18th January, so this took priority. This week consisted of me trying to create a slide show for this talk, but my PC and laptop refused to cooperate. I am currently tapping this out on my phone … Thankfully, my husband is an IT engineer, so my PC and laptop are now being sorted. I will continue to aim for earlier nights …
Sue: I seem to have successfully negotiated the return to school challenge, so that’s good.
I ended up having a particularly busy week with lots of family commitments which took me away from the desk for as much time as I spent behind it. However, I did manage to write one and a half chapters of my novella, clocking up over 1700 words on Wednesday.
Thursday I began to seriously think about the edits for my next full length novel. These edits actually came in before Christmas but I’ve only just looked at them properly. There’s a fair amount of work to be done but generally, I do enjoy the editing process. So, not a bad week, all thing considered.
How did you all get on?
