All New Weekly Round Up #01

Okay it has been a while but I finally feel up to starting to set some goals again and feel the need to refocus my work after the distractions of surgery.  each week there will once again be 5 aims or targets to get creative juices flowing for the up coming week plus a review of the previous weeks targets and how the were met if indeed they were.

1.  Each week goal number one will be my proposed word count which I want to try to increase each week in preparation for my personal NaNo style writmo in January.  As I mentioned in a previous post I found some great spreadsheets to keep track of my word count and I will be using these to keep track of my progress.  I am starting the word count target at a thousand words a day but that will include blog posts so on average it will be around 400-500 on the blog then the rest on my WIP.

I know this one is not very clear to read but it is just to give you an idea and I will do a close up showing each weeks progress,

2.  I will begin reading Udolpho again, it has sat waiting patiently while I recovered but if I do not get back into it now I will still be looking at it next christmas.

3.  Editing Counting Down for the WOCA Anthology the first notes came back just before my surgery and I have to say they were all totally fair points I read through and can see all the changes required, now just to sit down and get it done.

4.  Reading blogs! you know how terrible I have been lately due to various problems then my surgery there are currently 3,445 posts sat waiting to be read in my email inbox.  Obviously no way am I going to get them all caught up at once so what I propose is to try to keep up with your new posts then randomly knock off 50 per week from the total waiting.  This means reading between 5 – 10 extra emails a day which in theory shouldn’t be too hard lol but you will also understand why I havent been commenting as much lately as I am trying to get through as many as possible when I got out f hospital my inbox had nearly 6.000 posts in it the hundred blogs I follow currently are producing nearly a 500 posts a day and I am sadly having to reconsider how I cope with these as much as I don’t want to drop any I am beginning to fear I may have to.

5.  This is a personal one which is to get through another week cig free!  It is strange the first week which should have been hardest was relatively easy but I am finding it really hard now.  I know I do not need one but I really want one I know the actually physical craving has passed and this is mental but it doesn’t help.

  1. Go go go! You’re the little engine that could and an inspiration! 🙂


    1. Am enjoying a short break from waiting on the cat as she has decided to go out for a bit i am sure she will be back soon with more demands


      1. Mine’s quieted some, for now. I think he doesn’t like this new dry food, although he never fussed about food generally, who knows. 🙂


  2. Paula I know what you mean about the struggle with cigs. I’m going to try again the first of the year!


  3. Great work on your word counts, Paula! And my husband and I are hoping to quit smoking soon as well – I’m just afraid of what type of monster I’ll turn into once I start going through withdrawals. WE CAN DO IT! WE CAN DO IT! 😀


    1. I haven’t killed anyone yet but what i really want to know is where the hundred quid I should have saved so far has gone because i suspect I have eaten it instead


  4. You are way more organized than I. I just keep a page on my blog with my word counts and that’s about it. And keep up with the non-smoking thing! Think of all the extra money you’ll be saving!


  5. You are driven. I love this about you!


  6. Good luck with all that honey xx


  7. Glad you’re feeling up to cracking on again, good luck!


  8. I’m amazed at how full your inbox is – that’s a bit of a nightmare!

    Keep strong with the cigs – sending you strength to get by (I know how hard it is!) 😉


  9. Good luck on your new weekly goals!


  10. Paula, why not make it easy on yourself? Start reading from today, rather than back tracking.

    Cigs, you are doing great. As a smoker who has only ever quit involuntarily once I am rooting for you.


  11. Good luck with everything!


  12. I don’t know whether to admire your persistence or, like Valentine,suggest you give yourself a break.
    I suppose it boils down to each of us finding what works for us. No two people are alike.


    1. I actually decided to take Valentines advice in part and have skimed through a load on my emails and deleted without going to the pages themselves and have halved the list that way already
