Accountability Post, Day 27

I did not just get in the door. I actually just finished unloading my car and I am so out of shape, it’s not funny. Yoga! will be taking place tomorrow.

Last night, after asking for my do over, I wrote 1,166 words. I guess maybe I just needed to whine it out. Today, I wrote 1,203 words while I was waiting for people so that’s a total of 2,369 new words written on the latest project. Which is almost done! Then I’ll be going back to an older project and making more words to just about double it, making it a novel instead of a novella. Which is a good thing. I think.

So, there we go. 2 minutes late but up and now I’m going back to writing.

What did you get done today? Is there anything you need to revisit?

Accountability Post, Day 26

Can I get a do-over for today? Nothing went entirely wrong but it doesn’t feel like I accomplished anything, either.

I need a cover for the story I just finished and my taste has exceeded my abilities, which means I have to wait for my designer. He is awesome and will do it right but it’s frustrating to beat my head against something just to admit that I need help.

Then there’s the story I’m working on now. I did 565 words this morning and just stopped. I know where I want it to go but I can’t seem to make it get there. I also have the sneaking suspicion that it’s the second story in the series and I really need to write the first one, too.

And then there’s the whole diet thing. I fell off the way of eating I was doing to try and repair some of the damage some of my health challenges have created. Mostly because it got really hard to cook cheaply for everybody and then need to make another, separate meal for myself. Or, I could cook for everybody and it could all be really expensive. I’m not to the point where that’s okay, yet. So, I gave in and ate with everybody else and I’m paying for it. Today was the first actual day of eating the way I’m supposed to and I hate it. I’m craving cookies and ice cream and bread, all of which I can’t have. I know this passes, I’m just really not enjoying it.

So, 565 words written on a story.

What did you get done today? Have you had any challenges recently? Let me know!

Wrote about 200 words. Short post because currently have potato soup boiling on the stove. Could have timed that better!

What did you get done today? Have anything good for dinner? Let me know!

Accountability Post, Day 24

Have you ever had a goal that was so exciting, you couldn’t sleep? That you worked until you were exhausted and resented the time you had to spend asleep? That’s what this month has been for me, especially as it comes to the end of March and my goal is in sight.

I woke up excited and pulled out my tablet, which I’m working on now, and finished the short story I had been writing the day before yesterday. And then I started another one. The first story is off to the beta readers and I’m hoping to finish the second story tonight, tomorrow at the latest. That’s 2,765 words for today.

I also started back on the yoga wagon today. I hurt so much but it’s a good hurt and I’m excited about it.

What are you excited about? Let me know!

Nothing went right today. Except the actual act of grocery shopping. Everything else? No.

Accountability Post, Day 22

I’m not sure whether I should make today a sad puppy day or not. I got home a little bit ago and was talking to my beta readers about the novella I sent them. I also had a really long day at work that started with me locking my keys in the car along with my tablet. So, as of right now this minute, I have written 265 words on the newest story. But! I’m going to do more tonight.

A little bit is better than nothing, right?

I think I’ll count this as a win and take a shower.

What’s your small victory so far? Let me know!

Accountability Post, Day 21

Today was a bits and pieces day that started at 6 am and isn’t over yet. I’m grabbing 5 minutes to update that I did 1,500 words while I was waiting for people. Oh, yeah, I also did 2,700 last night after updating and finished the book. Today’s words are the start of a new story.

I also worked, picked up the kiddo, picked up the hubby, picked up my MOH dress (which looks lovely and reminds me that I’m skipping dessert for, um, ever) and ran a few more errands. I am so tired. I’m also planning on writing some more before bed, but maybe not much.

What did you do today? Anything fun?
