It’s that time of the week again! I’m going to do it a little different today, just to make it easier for me, I won’t lie, so, here is how it all went…
*Write a short story, focusing on quality rather than quantity – Well, this is a little complicated now, as I had started a piece, but I decided to change it and now it is looking more like a novel than a short story from what I have of it. However, I have found an old piece that I will be rejuvenating and hopefully sharing with you very soon.
*Write something towards my novel everyday – I suppose due to my ambiguity on this one, I can say that I have achieved it this past week, as I have technically written towards it, in view of writing it. I have tweaked the first novel a little to make it more accessible to those who judge books on the first few pages, and I have been making detailed plans for the sequel. Rather than focus on word count I have decided instead to write up a plan for each individual chapter, and to set myself an outcome that will lead nicely into the third and final book.
*Make time to finally finish ‘The Twelve’ – This has not happened, and let’s face it, it won’t be happening in the next few days. Soon I have three weeks off so I hope to finish that and many others over the break!
*Keep up with University reading/prep work – This has been a work-in-progress. I have made myself a flexible time table and if I stick to it this week then I should be all caught up and on track for another round of firsts.
*Commit to my yoga practise – Okay, okay, I’ll admit, I haven’t really tried too hard with this one, BUT my Davina DVD is coming out again, and I have a plan in the works in regards to exercise, yoga included.
*Stay mindful! – This is my only goal that I have stuck to completely, and it has been my favourite. It has been hard at times, but getting back to what is happening around me and using it as a way to conquer my feelings of self doubt – which there has been a lot of this week – has been greatly rewarding and worth the time I take out of my day to refocus myself.
There were times this week when I was ready to give up, to scrap everything that I have worked for these past couple of years, but with a little encouragement from my darling fiancé I was able to see past the negatives that seem to be throwing themselves into my path, and now, with a little more resolve, I am going to conquer the world head on, whether they like it or not!
Good luck with your own goals, and I will see you on the 28th!
Spread the love & keep on reading!
