Writing Goals, 4th December, 2017

 

Hi Everyone,

 

December is already frantically busy and we are only four days into the month. Dragonmeet and a family outing filled the weekend, leaving me scrambling to catch up today. I think the whole week is going to be a struggle.

 

Previously at Tales of a GM:

 

  • 1 hour – Primary Goal- 12 Days Dicember photographs
  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post a long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 2 hours – General Fiction
  • Bonus – First Draft Chapter Book
  • 30 mins – Fiction Planning

 

My main focus for last week was preparing for the long day at Dragonmeet. This all ran smoothly but left little time for anything else. I took photographs for the first six questions for The 12 Days of Dicember. Thus, another session with the lightbox is needed early this week.

 

Elsewhere, I managed good progress on the blog. Except for Wednesday night, when a pipe in the new kitchen sprang a leak. I lost the rest of the evening dealing with the streaming water, so November only just hit 40 articles. However, I managed to schedule a post for Saturday, ensuring The 12 Days of Dicember was not disrupted by Dragonmeet.

 

Here is Saturday’s Answer

 

Looking ahead to the rest of the week, I expect to struggle for time. The blogging schedule is much busier, while December also brings more school events and bonus chores around the house. Couple this with the building work, I see very little rest for me. I must push hard as I need to sustain interest in The 12 Days of Dicember. My bare-bones schedule is much the same as last week:

 

  • 1 hour – Primary Goal- 12 Days Dicember support
  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post a long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 2 hours – General Fiction
  • Bonus – First Draft Chapter Book
  • 30 mins – Fiction Planning

 

I knew December would be hard and tried to prepare as much as I could. I am halfway through the Christmas cards and it may not be long before we can start moving back into downstairs. This week is likely to be quite a blur.

 

See how I performed here

 

Wishing you a productive week

Phil
