March Goals: Week One Follow Up or Where Am I?

Even though it ‘s not a full week into March, I’m going to do my first week follow up today. Sunday will be a day of reflection and follow up as far as my writing goals are concerned.

So how did I do?

Over all, pretty good. I’m satisfied with my progress in a way that leaves me excited about where I’m headed.


 

Goal One: Two days off per week

This may be the easiest goal to accomplish since I’m basically lazy. 😀 But, yes, met this one. Took a couple of days off earlier in the week. What that means is that I need to write today since Sunday has typically been my day off writing.


 

Goal Two: Add 3000 words to WIP each week

I only added 2349 words to my WIP, so I failed to meet this goal. But the month (week) only started Tuesday, and I do plan to write today, so I’ll count this as a draw rather than a loss.


 

Goal Three: Complete the rough draft of one article

I have not worked on this yet. It’s not due until the end of the month. I do have work on this project scheduled this week. I’ll have an update next Sunday.


 

Goal Four: Complete the rough draft of one short story

Same as above. I have not started this project yet, but do have some work on it scheduled.


 

Goal Five: Set up a WIP word count tracker

Done! Woo Hoo! I’m using StoryToolz. You can see the counter in the sidebar on the right side of the page.


 

Goal Six: Research magazine markets

I have started this. I have a the Kindle version of the  2016 Writer’s Market. I ordered the 2016 Children’s Magazine Market from Institute of Children’s Literature late last week. I hope to receive it this week.


 

Overall, I think I’m off to a great start. Next weekend during my reflection time I will start working on writing out my April goals.

Have you made progress on your March goals? How do you track your progress?
