I’m still barreling ahead with progress on Drawn. It hasn’t been as prolific a week so far, but I’ve managed to exceed my daily minimum by at least a few words every day and I’ve got more than 14,000 words down of the story. It feels good to blow way past my daily goal, but giving myself permission to just meet the goal and not try anything fancy is important too.
One of the reasons I haven’t been writing quite as much this week is because I started stripping wallpaper at our house. We’re aiming to move in by the end of April, which means we have a LOT of work to do on the painting front. I want to get all the wallpaper off the walls and have them ready to paint by March 24, the same due date I’ve given myself for Drawn. I will feel a lot better once I know that we can attack things with paintbrushes as soon as the estate sale is over, which should be coming up in a few weeks. In the meantime, I can knock out a lot of work. It’s a little intimidating because I’ve never done any home improvement or repairs before, having always lived in apartments. But it’s exciting…especially planning out the paint and floorplan for my very own writing and craft studio!
How are your goals coming, fellow ROW80ers? Happy Leap Day!
