July Recap and Reflection

Wheee! Welcome to the first blog post of August 2014. I'm a trifle giddy as I've just sat down and planned out my writing schedule for the rest of the year. *gulp* Maybe delirious is the word I should use?

Before I move forward into the month I want to reflect on what did and didn't work in July. I'm sharing because I didn't have time to cough up a real, more interesting blog post. Sorry about that.

On the plus side for July:

  • Stuck with my goal of writing a blog post every Thursday

  • Completed my rewrite of Stormy Weather w/an addition of over 8K words

  • Made more of an effort to be visible on social media - including Facebook which I find difficult, and have been introduced to some very festive folks and communities via Twitter.

  • Met my exercise goals for the month

  • Completed two craft seminars

  • Laid out my 2015 writing plan & added more detail on the a 5 novella series

  • Continued working like a stevedore/lumberjack w/Mr. Munder on the weekends. If the power company would get around to trimming the limbs twisted in the lines we could finish taking those trees down.

  • Weaned the fat boy down to meds once every 5 days and have him using the auto feeder again

On the minus side:

  • The more social I became via CM media the less real life social I ended up. It would be easier if more of my real-life-friends-I-want-to-keep-in-touch-with were actually on FB or better yet, Twitter. But they aren't, so I need to do a better job here. I always find this interesting. Y'all have smart phones - plug in to the net! :D

  • Missed a couple of Tues/Thurs postings of my Free Kindle Picks on Twitter

  • As always, exercise is easy for me - eating in a reasonable fashion is not. Definitely need to plan that better

  • My time spent reading for pleasure went down - but what do I honestly expect?

For a month that flew by at what seemed the speed of light, I'll count myself rather accomplished.

How did your month go?
