I have been absent from ROW80 for two weeks now. I am nearly recovered from a rather severe case of sleep deprivation and intend to baby myself for a little longer until I am fully rested. I did manage to write another short piece in a collection I am working on and am rather happy with it. Mostly, I have spent my down time over the last two weeks in a half awake state that is not conducive to writing. However, I was wide awake yesterday and the next stage for one of my WIPs became clear in my head. I hope to have time tomorrow, between customers, to advance that story.
My life will be chaos for the next eight months or so, so I am going to set goals that I have some hope of accomplishing.
1. Write at least 1000 words per week on WIPs
I finished a short piece for a collection.
2. Start a Twitter account
Goal met: 4/4/2012
3. Learn how to use Twitter, Facebook and my blog to at reach at least 10 new followers.
No further progress here
4. Post at least one blog that is not a ROW80 check-in
5. Learn how to use wordpress so that I can do things like add the ROW80 badge to my sidebar, or locate a blogsite that I understand how to use.
I am still making slow progress in understanding blogs in general, but I am becoming more comfortable with them.
Okay folks. A little less scared here. I think I can actually manage this list! It might be tough at times, but I really think I can swing it!
How did you do? Any wonderful surprises?
