January 2012 – Update
I plan on posting a quick update at the end of each month to chart my progress against my goals for the year.
This month I’ve written 12,000 words, 42 pages, which is 3 chapters of my book.
That is better than I managed in any single month last year, so I should be happy about it.
But I’m not. It’s not enough. If I had done NaNo this month I would have FAILED miserably. Other things have managed to get in the way so I want MORE focus in February.
I set a target of at least 24 books in 2012. As well as the Eclectic Reader Challenge 2012 (which is 12 books) I want to read more. So far I’ve read 2 books: Drowning Rose by Marika Cobbold (my Review) and Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci (review pending).
So I’m on track.
Stay the same weight:
There’s a story here.
Thankfully, they were all clear and I don’t have gallstones, but I can’t eat anything fatty. It was my fault really. I don’t recommend going on a low-fat diet for six months and then eat this HUGE wok-full of fried Christmas lunch! Pork pies and New York cheese cake :)
So as far as the goal for 2012 I wanted to keep my weight static and it is slightly down this month.
How are you doing with your goals for 2012?
Are you still on track?
