I’m going back to underachieving.
It didn’t take long after adding the new items to my goal list for life to show me that it is still in charge, and more than capable of wreaking havoc. After getting hit hard with a virus (human, not computer), all of my plans were shot. For nearly two weeks. And I’m still not entirely back to normal.
I’m back to simply editing the first draft of this manuscript. The other will have to wait until this one is finished. I’ll still try to get to the pool at least three days a week, but I think that will help every area of my life, including the writing.
As to exactly what my goals will be, I have no clue how to set them for editing. There are a total of nineteen chapters, plus the epilogue. I’ve gone through two chapters already, plan to finish the the rest, and have it ready for beta readers by February first.
There are also the blogs necessary to begin publicizing the book before its April 23 release. I need a total of fourteen and have completed four of them.
So there you have it. My underachiever goals for the rest of the month. But I need some wiggle room because clearly I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow or next week.
***Friday marked the third week in my new Swamp Sludge way of life. Yup. Twenty-one days. Well, twenty-three now. And about a week ago I started using it twice a day, thanks to the larger container I ordered from Amazon.
Gotta say though I like Barlean’s better (and I don’t exactly like that, more like tolerate it). I think I experience more mental alertness when I use that.
The new stuff seems to take the whole freshly mowed lawn experience to a new level. I mean picture a pile of grass clippings mulched down a few times and…that’s what I’m drinking now. Mmm-mmm good. Not! But I’m in it for the long haul. Lucky me. 🙂
Thought I’d throw this in for fun. I love this song. Wish I could sing along with it…but my lips don’t move that fast.
