Only a couple of days left until the end of the month. This poses a couple of questions.
1. Where the hell is 2009 going? We’re now 1/3 of the way through it. Wow. When I was younger people used to tell me that time started going faster the older you get. That is so true. I dread to think how quickly it will go when I’m 50! Or 70?
2. How did I get on with my goals for April? Pretty well.
Today’s post makes 14 this month – my target. If I can squeeze in a few more I can go way over my target.
Last week I reached my total for words written. I’m really impressed with that. I thought 6,000 would be a hard target to reach, seeing as I’ve not done any proper serious writing for years. I found it quite easy though. It helped that I tried the writing for 5 minutes every hour while at work. Although I only managed to do this about once, it kept writing in the forefront of my mind. Therefore when I had some spare time, I started writing.
I finished reading This Charming Man by Marian Keyes and wrote my review of it (https://newtowritinggirl.wordpress.com/what-im-reading/this-charming-man-by-marian-keyes/)
I read the next three modules of the writing course. I’ve not made notes which is something I’d like to do, but not top of my priorities.
Assignment two. Ah. Um. No. I’ve started to review a magazine. Yeah, not getting on too well with this. Need to give myself a kick to get me going on this. I have been thinking about it quite a lot. I have done some research into the kind of magazines I think I could write for. Step up on this next month (and the last couple of days of this month). I do carry the magazine I’m currently reviewing round with me. Does that count as a step in the right direction?
Writing down dreams/day dreams. I’m not too sure how I’ve done with this. I’ve written a few down on scraps of paper lying around as I’ve thought of them. Or sent myself emails with the details or even saved them as drafts on here. I’ve not as yet put them in order so I have no idea how many I’ve written down. I’m getting semi good at it. I probably write them down every 3 or 4 days. Better than nothing!
All in all I’m quite happy with my progress, especially as I only really had half the month to action them. I presume that means I have to double my plan for next month? Or more than double it to push myself? My priority must be my next assignment.
