February 12 – Update
It’s that special day that comes around just once every four years. Leap year feels like a free day to me and even though I’m knackered I was determined to put a little extra effort in, do some writing and finish this post.
This is the second update of the year already. Time really does fly when you start to get old.
So how are we all doing against our goals for the year?
This month I’ve written:
- 15,025 words;
- which is 48 pages;
- or 3.5 chapters of my book.
This is more than I managed last month and I missed a week of writing when the Nasty Mr Migraine stole my Mojo.
The sad stats geek in me also notes that I managed to write on 15 of the 29 days, which means I average 1k words on the days I write. I would like to write every day, but every other day is good enough for me. If I can nudge the number of writing days up then I’m heading in the right direction.
This month I’ve also managed 7 blog posts and helped set up the new Steel City Writers blog. So not a bad month writing-wise.
I set a target of at least 24 books in 2012. So 2 a month. And this month I’ve managed a grand total of … 1.
At least I’ve read something. The book was The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (review pending). This is part of the Eclectic Reading Challenge the Classics genre, but I found it hard work. I don’t read much 19th Century literature and I know why. I enjoyed it in the end though it did take me a long time to get into the story, so I kept putting it down.
I have downloaded five other e-books so I’ll pick something lighter/modern as my next read.
Not quite on track, but will be ok.
Stay the same weight:
The healthy eating plan continues. I’ve been the same weight (+/- 1lb) since November. I continue to have some gall stone related problems so anything fatty is out of the question, which helps keep the weight down.
How are you doing with your goals for 2012?
Two months in, are you still on track?
