June 12 – Update
June is HISTORY and we are ALREADY half-way through 2012.
This year is flying like nobody’s business.
We had two weeks off work this month so the weather turned and the sunshine was replaced with rain and threatening looking clouds. We’re used to it. The number of times we’ve had leave from work and the weather has worsened. I tell you. NEVER take a holiday if you know we’re off. It’ll end in tears!
As well as Cleethorpes to see the sea. We spent one of the nice days out at Kedleston Hall. This place was built in the 1760s as a party pad. If you’re ever in the vicinity of Derby I recommend checking it out.
Onto the goals:
1) Write more:
This month I’ve managed to write:
- 14,685 words;
- which is 49 pages;
- or the final 7 chapters of my book.
I was determined to finish my novel this month. And finish it I did. With the two weeks off on leave I needed to finish this month. It wouldn’t have been good if I hadn’t managed to write the last chapters with no work to go to each day. I have struggled to write after work for the last few months. One of my colleagues left during June and until she is replaced my workload there isn’t going to reduce.
So the final counts for the novel are 98,155 words and 342 pages. It’s printed and stored for a few weeks. Gone, but certainly not forgotten and my trusty notebook is still on hand for the next stage of tinkering.
2) Read more:
I’ve only read ONE book this month, but that does take my total to ELEVEN for the year.
Once I’d finished my writing for the month I decided to take the rest of June off. For everything. I’ve done some reading but not much. I have started a new book so will pick up the pace in July.
3) Stay the same weight & Migraine watch:
The healthy eating plan continues as does the curious daily curly wurly crusade I have going. I have eaten one every day for the whole of June. Mmmmmmm
The weather has been muggy and I’ve had a few small migraines again. Same as last month they start and fade into the background. Hopefully, they’ll continue that way.
Half way through 2012 already. How are you doing with your goals for 2012?
