Final Check-in ROW80
December 22, 2011 § 4 Comments
Well, I didn’t do too bad overall. I finished a rough draft, for the freaking love. (Or as Gabe likes to say: “or the reaking lub!”)
I’m excited to dive in the next round with more realistic expectations and a better understanding of myself. I’ve loved reading other writers’ blogs and getting to know some lovely people. I’ve almost figured out “the Twitter” so maybe next round I’ll try to participate in the hashtag world.
The last two check-ins I checked out. I had a real pity party for myself and kind of gave up for a sec. I’m a classic quitter. I would color in pages of my coloring books and as soon as I got outside the lines flip the page and abandon my original masterpiece. This resulted in an abundance of half-colored coloring books, and it is apparent that I do the same thing on a grown-up level.
So next round, I plan to make my goals more attainable. Writing 1000 words every day and blogging and reading and raising two babies is not reasonable. I need my own things, but I am a mom first. And we’ve had a special Christmas week around here which I’m very proud of!
Merry, Merry Holidays to everyone and Happiest of New Years!
