Since we’re 1/3 of the way through the first quarter, I thought that it made sense to check in and see how I’m doing on my goals.
1. Blog an Average of 5 Times a Week. I haven’t done it. I would have needed to write 20 posts by 1/30. I actually wrote 16, which translates to an average of 4 per week. Not bad. My best week (Mon-Sun) was the week of 1/21 with 8. I actually felt like I was getting into a groove about a week ago, particularly with the aid of my (Somewhat) Daily Updates, but it was a rough week for me this week and I didn’t do so well on the blogging front. That said, it’s a new month!
2. Finish the 3rd Draft of AH1 (the continuously unnamed novel). This one is a little hard to quantify. That said, I do have a plan and I have made 22 of 27 planned minor changes 8 of 14 significant changes. Although I still don’t know what to do about Chap 25, I am well on my way to hitting this goal.
3. Be Ready for the First Triathlon of the Season. Not so well on this one. Breaking the inertia of the my extended layoff has been hard, particularly with the current emphasis on writing. Before this week I think I got out for a total of 2-3 workouts. This was my first decent week with 4 workouts. Technically I am merely not on track as much as I need to be as opposed to off track (love how I can split hairs?). But I really can’t afford for February to be anything near to what January was.
