ROW80 check-in #20

Tomorrow is Memorial Day. How and who will you be remembering? I have plans to spend some time honoring my grandparents that have passed away. I’ll be having some of their favorite meals and snacks, telling stories to my sons who never met them because they passed away too soon, and I also plan to pull out some old photo albums to gaze upon their sweet faces. What ever you have planned I hope you are able to take a moment and enjoy the day.

The Goals – week-8 results

  • Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- done
  • Write 2,000 words each week– not done, again, but much improved over last week 1406-words. WEEK-9 PRIORITY
  • Spend time editing at least 2-times each week– done. My WIP is now over the 25,000 word mark, yahoo, but I still have a couple more scenes to tweak before I give it one more read through and ship it over to my friend. WEEK-9 PRIORITY
  • Finish reading current craft book and start another– spent more time here than last week, but I’m not done yet
  • Participate in Before You Hit Send Self-Editing Workshop in April– the workshop is over. I think it’s time to revisit a couple of the workshop sections to make sure I’m still working some of the skills correctly WEEK-9 PRIORITY
  • Turn 2nd-draft chapters to my writer friend for her critique– I’m getting really close now, it is entirely possible that next week this will say done
  • Workout a minimum of 200-minutes a week and round it out with plenty of water, sleep and my calorie limit I got over 200-minutes this week and everything else was good…done.
  • Study one of the Nia 52-moves each week (the 52-moves is like the ballet bar for Nia lovers)Slow Clock.  Begin by marching in place in the center of an imaginary clock on the floor. Use the clock like a map. Step out to a number on the clock and return to center. Repeat to different numbers on the clock and alternate sides, but always return to center after each step out. Benefits: teaches you to sense moving from the center as a way to monitor relaxation in the body and adds precision and grace.
  • Finish the. Sanjana bars and start the Opal bars (i.e. studying the song/movement structure)– I’ve decided on another set of notes for my mirrors, even simpler this time around. Apparently I know more than I realize.
  • Listen to the Nia sound track for the Sanjana routine each week and add Opal when I get to their bars– done
  • Plan out and start participating in the last of my needed continuing education credits for PMP certification– Last week I made big progress here and this week nada. I’m going to sacrifice this task again this week in an attempt to make a big push on the WIP

Thanks for stopping by today. In a couple hours I’ll have my Six Sunday up, so I hope you will check that out too.

Happy Memorial Day.

  1. Yay for hitting that 25k mark! You are making great progress! What is Nia? It sounds interesting, might have to google that as I am always looking for more strength training and/or yoga style workouts since I have a back injury and need to be careful with cardio! Hope you have a great week!

    • I’ve been editing more than writing these last couple of weeks. Some days the word count goes down instead of up 😉 so I was very pleased to see the word count over 25000 this week, happy dance 😀
      Nia is awesome!! It’s based on nine movements forms from dance, martial, and the healing arts. Nia leads you to moving in your body’s way<–how cool is that. The way it is taught you learn about your body and ways to alter the movement to fit you and your body's needs. Def check it out!! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. well done on the word count well done on all other done counts – you are having a good streak – happy feet indeed – watch out for those tugging words trying to muscle in! -keep smiling:)
