In Which Rebekah Slacks Off – A #WriteMotivation Update


So… the first week of February is gone. How?

So much happening this week. My brother’s birthday is on Thursday, Valentine’s Day is Friday, and somewhere in here we’ve got to get a chance to snake the drain in the garage… so the washing machine will drain down it, instead of onto the garage floor. 


So, goals:

  1. Get at least one-third of the way through Catalyst revisions. – Yeah, haven’t even started this yet…
  2. Get half of personal A-Z Challenge posts written. – *snort* yeah right…
  3. Get all of assigned Ferret A-Z posts written. – Started! I’ve written E, and if I were to go in order J would be next, but honestly that one’s probably going to turn into a research paper, so I… need to start on whatever is after that one.
  4. Finish world map for Undoing. – Still gotta find the map. *shifty glances around the office*
  5. Start organizing filing cabinet. – Yeah, I didn’t really take into account that it’s hard to get anything done in the office with the chicken cage taking up most of the floor space. I’m hoping to move her back out with the flock later this week (when we finally have a few days above freezing), so this is going to have to wait for the latter half of the month.
  6. Read at least one writing craft book, and one non-fantasy fiction book. – I definitely go through phases of “read all the things” or “read none of the things”. Guess which one is happening right now? *groan*

  1. there’s still time, Rebekah! You can do it! Just remember to breathe! <3

    PS: I've finished Downton Abby!!!!! or…rather, I've caught up to everyone else. 😛

    1. I’ve had “The Help” checked out from the library for about a month now… so I figure I should actually attempt to read it. If I can’t get into it, I’ll probably grab a Dean Koontz book off my shelf, lol.

        1. Not often. I feel like I already read a lot of non-fiction for reference (writing books, costume/fashion history, Bible study, etc.) even if I don’t read the entirety of a non-fiction book all the time, so when I sit down to just read, I prefer fiction.

  2. You can do it! 😀 Good to know I am not the only one thinking in lists of multiple projects at once…
    Hi from the A to Z theme reveal team! Can’t wait to see what your theme is going to be 😉 Cheers!

    1. Hah, I just can’t focus on only one thing at a time. I’ve tried and I only accomplish NOTHING. This way, at least, I can get something done somewhere along the way.

      And hi back! Can’t wait for reveal day :).

  3. I go through those same “read all/none of the things!” phases too. Right now I’m in a writing/WoW phase. Soon it’ll cycle back to a reading phase. Sometimes I get into an HGTV phase and do nothing but sit in front of the TV all night 😉 Instead of worrying about it I just keep going with the flow, knowing I’ll come back around again. And hey, you still have a few weeks to keep at those goals!

What do you think?
