ROW80 Roar – Sunday Check-in

I’m roaring with my ROW80 a little more this week, although some goals are changing.  My novel is getting neglected for an unexpected writing project (more on that in my next post), but that’s okay for now.  It’s just that the push for other things in addition to this project has been . . . well, let’s just say I’m trying to keep my head on straight and still make at least a little progress!

And since I love checklists and marking down my little Xs when I accomplish things (not to mention the fact that I can never remember how much tweeting/commenting I’ve done!), I started an Excel spreadsheet.   For good or bad, I can now see my ups and downs at a glance.

For the last week, including the tail end of my reporting period from Wednesday, I’ve done fantabulous with my writing time.  I don’t get much credit for that, though – research for the new project has me perking right along.

I’ve posted two regular blogs here and this is my second ROW80 check-in this week – hurray!  But better is that I actually posted on my Jen’s Writing Desk site, about “practice writing” and some prompts.  Double hurray!  I’ve only re-tweeted eight times, which is a lot less than normal, but I’ve left comments on ten blogs, which is more than I usually do.  Either way, I’m way over my goal of 10 combined.

Let’s see . . . that leaves the mind/body/spirit stuff.  Exercise is good, at least the minimal amount that I can do, but cutting back sugar and white stuff is down the tubes.  And I probably won’t succeed at that until I get back home.  I was successfully consistent with my daily Scripture study again, but other feed-the-soul stuff like music and quilting didn’t happen at all, thanks once again to THE PROJECT.

So what is this project?  Very exciting, very career-progressing, but, gee, I guess you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow or Tuesday!  *evil grin*  See you then.

In the meantime, check out these other ROW80 posts (ooh – I figured it out!):

    Wow! Organization… The idea of the Excel spreadsheet sounds so very good, but a bit scary to me. Hope it works well for you.

    Either way, except for that white sugary stuff issue (and who DOESN’T seem to have a problem with that one, it seems) you’ve got a handle on everything. Great job.

      Hi, Eden. All I did is put one-word goals across the top: words, edit, tweets, comments, blog, etc. And then I put the date down the left side. (Enter three in a row, then select them and drag down to let Excel fill in all the rest of the consecutive dates) And then put lovely little Xs when you do something! Going to check out your blog now, thanks for stopping by.
