Last week was a good writing week. Gods, I love those! I want every week to be one of those, to be honest. In spite of that, I only registered 12 writing hours in my tracker which feels like it’s quite a bit lower than the time I actually spent. I think I may have not been taking care with Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Good Time, but How Much of it?
2017 is over. And, like… phew! I feel like that’s all I can say about it when it’s been a bad year for me but so much worse for so much of the world. So instead, let’s talk about 2018! As the regular reader of this blog knows, I like goals. I find them helpful both in visualizing my future, Continue reading Writing Goals for 2018 + First Twice Fortnightly of the Year
Tonight I turned in my second to last term paper. The last one is already a week late (aaaah!) but should be finished tomorrow (yaaaay!). Which means that on Wednesday, I can finally shift my focus back to writing (have really only done Adventboost in the last week or two and nothing else), with the following goals: Spend 10h on Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Almost over the hurdle
There’s a thing that happens sometimes on Sunday evenings, where I suddenly realized that I haven’t opened my bullet journal for about two days and that my weekend to-do list in it is mostly blank. That’s not a shortcoming of the bullet journal system; it’s served me very well for the near-year I’ve been using it and has been an Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Another Kind of Vacation.
Disclaimer: this post contains mild productivity-bragging. If you’re a writer and feeling bad about your level of productivity: don’t! You are doing your best! I am super lucky that right now my health bar is at full and my calendar is empty, which let’s me focus a ton of time on this. I brag on only because my productivity makes Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Personal Record(?)!
Wow. I am one week back into my blogging and already I am back to my old habit of, at intervals, pretending that it’s Monday on Tuesday. Well, I had a good reason this time because last night when I remembered that it was Monday, I didn’t have much energy left with which to do things, and I was left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to a Time-Honored Tradition (no, 2!)
I was not particularly happy with my progress last week. I did get a few things done, but not as much as I would’ve liked. Here’s what I did: Wrote for 8h. 2/3 of my goal. I am not pleased. I wrote a short piece for Flash Fiction Friday! It was a little spur of the moment piece, but I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School
My cold is still going strong. Well, strong-ish, and slowly diminishing thankfully. It put a bit of a damper on my writing progress last week, but hey… now is a new week. But first, last week in review: I spent about 12 hours writing or on writing-related activities. Less than I’d hoped, but more than I expected by week’s end. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch
The past week wasn’t a great week, writing-wise. I only managed 6h out of my intended 7, and even that’s while rounding up if I’m being honest. I barely touched my conlanging, and gave myself a pass on Flash Fiction Friday because I was exhausted and empty-headed. I did work a fair bit on my #12for12stories February story, though. It’s coming along, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New Effort
Last week wasn’t great, writing wise. I was busy, I was tired, and I also planned my time badly. So what I ended up doing was this: Spent about 6h on writing. Disappointed about that one. Posted for Flash Fiction Friday. Picked a story for my #12for12stories short, but didn’t look at it yet. Had a crit group meeting, productive as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bit of a Slump
