Writing Goals, 8th October, 2017

 

Hi Everyone,

 

The third week of the building work aligned with a busy week in school. This cut down my writing time, combined with the need to catch up from a poor start on Sunday. Thus, I was kept very busy and failed to make good progress on every target.

  • 1 hour – Primary Goal – December Blog plan
  • Bonus – 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 – First Draft Chapter Book
  • 30 mins – Fiction Planning

 

The early part of the week involved a lot of catching up, both with the blog and social media. My long blog post for the week was not finished until Wednesday. I am pleased with the article, but I was not left with much time for my other writing projects as a result.

 

I restarted creating the graphics for the December project. The first attempt was rather gaudy, so I am trying for an image a little more understated. I am no graphic designer and must learn as I create. As with any piece of software, I improve the longer I work with it. However, the creative writing did not receive the attention it needed.

 

Meanwhile, I also had a session of HeroQuest to prepare for Saturday. It was great to be gaming again and I successfully juggled my time. A tight focus on Friday ensured I worked through both the daily and the remaining gaming tasks. The game session turned out very well, setting up plenty of future stories.

 

Looking ahead, the building work continues next week. We are nearing the mid-point, but several weeks remain. There are no school events this week and I have a lot more time to write. The slightly expanded schedule looks like this:

 

  • 1 hour – Primary Goal – December Blog plan
  • 1 hour – Secondary 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
  • 2 hours – General Fiction
  • 1 hour – First Draft Chapter Book
  • 30 mins – Fiction Planning

 

I am unable to game again next weekend, but I need to prepare for the Halloween special game. There will still be plenty of game prep to weave into this week.

 

See how I performed here

 

Wishing you a productive week

Phil
