Writing Goals, 3rd September, 2017

 

Hi Everyone,

 

I am so happy to reach September and the last few days of the long summer holiday. The looming building work has dominated our summer, so we could not focus on the boys as much. At least I had the Summer Gaming Challenge to keep me going and provide gaming opportunities with the boys.

 

Previously on Tales of a GM:

 

  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 1 hour – General Fiction
  • Bonus – Planar pdf

 

I continued pushing with the blog last week and successfully completed the RPG-a-day project. This had put a lot of pressure on my schedule so I am thankful to reach September and ease this burden. Last week also saw the familiar late surge on the blog as I concluded the short series of articles for the August Blog Carnival.

 

Overall, I probably wrote too much and packed too little. The planar pdf kept moving forward, which will help me enormously once I begin building up my schedule next week. Last week was also good for my gaming, and I look good to complete my target of playing 100 games over the summer.

 

Looking ahead, the boys return to school on Wednesday. I am taking things easy, and giving myself a little recovery time through the end of the week. The writing will step forward a little, and I must keep progressing with the preparations for the builders. The slightly expanded schedule looks like this:

 

  • 2 ½ hours – Primary Goal – Planar pdf
  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 1 hour – General Fiction
  • 1 hour – Fiction Planning

 

As you can see, one of my goals is to create a structured plan for my fiction for the rest of the year. I need quiet to think this through, so it has to wait until the boys are back at school. I am very excited to be in a position to devote a little more time to my writing.

Wishing you a productive week

Phil
