    It was a bit of a struggle last week but I made forward progress and I didn’t get down on myself when I started feeling stressed and insecure.

    Took some work but I made it, again, and then some. Kept plodding away even when I didn’t quite feel like it.

    Didn’t make my goal this week. The day job has been insanity personified, and I’m in editing mode anyway, which is never quite as fun as new words. I haven’t sprinted once this week, which makes me sad. Here’s hoping this week will be better!

      Oh Marin – do I feel you on this one. I had a rather unproductive week myself, courtesy of the day job.

      Keep pushing forward – all progress IS progress!!!! And here’s to a better week next week.

    I did not make my goal last week. I need to get back in the groove this week. However, I did finish reading a book I’ve been working on for a while now!!

  7. I MADE MY GOAL! 🙂 And passed 50K on the WIP – unfortunately my target wordcount seems to keep getting longer too. Still hoping to finish by the end of the festival though. Forging onward! 🙂

    Sometimes I get nothing done during the week, but then the weekend comes and I catch up! So glad I had a better week this time. Congrats to everyone!

    I didn’t do many sprints this week, but I’m moving along with writing. I spent most of this week plotting, and now I’ve jumped back in with a new WIP. 🙂

    Point wise, I MADE MY GOAL.

    Because of continuous doctor appointments, blood work, babysitting and being tired, the only things I was able to do was read while at the doctor’s offices and sleep when I wasn’t babysitting. Even at night, when I usually did my editing and rewriting, the little one was restless and with everyone else sleeping it fell to me to attend to her needs. So it is by reading and resting that I earned points. I wish I had been able to edit and do some rewrites as well.

    What this means for me the rest of the month is not so much resting and a whole lot more pushing no matter what the doctors say if I am to at least finish editing this story. I am going to still try to get it finished.

    I intend that SOMETHING good comes from this month. The doctors aren’t going to give me any good news but one that I can hold on to. At least I am no longer anemic. I am back to being borderline anemic again. I will take that.

      I’m sorry about the tiredness and the anemia and the doctors’ visits. That’s hard to work thru. But your determination is a credit to you, and will take you further than any amount of talent that isn’t utilized. We’re cheering for you.

    I didn’t quite make my goal this week, and because of real life getting in the way haven’t managed to do any more sprints either, but I will try harder this week. On the plus side, I finished writing a short story for a contest (dialogue only so quite a challenge)and also made the local Newspaper with the news that My latest novel ‘Beloved Enemy’ is on the short list for the RoNA Awards of the Romantic Novelists Association (UK) so it’s been quite an exciting week!

  12. I almost made my goal. I’m actually proud of that, because it’s been a week of distractions. This challenge is a good motivation to do something related to writing every day. Onward and upward!

    I caught up on last week’s goals (putting in the one extra day of writing that I missed last week), plus met this week’s. Yay!

    And I’m about to dive into an evening of writing 🙂

    Yay Winter Writing Festival for getting me off my duff and back at the computer!!
