Check out my writing vlog where I edit Cycle Eight, draw on our sales board at work, and publish a new ebook.
It’s week four, and I’ve finally done it. I wrote those damn blurbs. You heard me! I wrote four of those little fuckers. Next week, I’ll workshop them with my betas.
That’s one massive weight off my shoulders and a big old checkmark on a goal for the month.
I’ve also managed to finish my edits of Cycle Eight, which means I will be reading it to my mom next week. Maybe this time I can capture some of that audio for the vlog, but that means I will also get that goal checked off my list before the end of the month. Woot!
All I have left is to finish the other short that I’m halfway through writing and keep at my habit of 250 words a day. Because let’s be honest, although my numbers meet the requirement, I haven’t been consistent, and that’s not okay.
Or maybe it is because I edited and published one of my Lishky shorts during one hell of a week.
Oh, yeah. I had to sit on the phone with the IRS for three hours one morning. The bonus being that I talked to a very helpful human being who fixed what she could for the moment. And I had SO MANY errands last week. It was nuts.
I’ll take the whole week as a win.
So, let’s look at my final numbers:
Week Four | July 18-24
Minutes Logged: 595/630
Minutes Ahead: 340 (Whoo!)
Words Written: 1,418
These numbers aren’t the best, but the goals are getting checked off. Funny how that works. Must be the buffer I gave myself last week.
Onward and upward! Time to kill the last week of camp nano.
Let me know how your writing is going this July in the comments below, and I’ll see y’all next week for another update.
