Short and Sweet: #writemotivation Update

I'm still getting around to know my fellow #writemotivation participants, and somehow March is almost over. How did that happen?!

I am looking forward to April, but a bit terrified about the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For those who don't know, this is a blog challenge where you have to write posts based on the letters of the alphabet in order. It's my first year. I haven't written one single post yet, but I plan to change that this week. My goal is to write the first 10 posts by Saturday.

I did figure out my theme for A to Z, though: Simply Succeeding. Why? Well, I simply want to succeed and finish the challenge. ;-)

I plan to rejoin #writemotivation in April (and A Round of Words in 80 Days - ROW80), but I also want to take off the first week of April to enjoy my kids and husband as we travel for Spring Break.

I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. Time will tell...

My #writemotivation Update

1. Work on my WIP for an hour every day, except Sunday.
I worked on my WIP, planning and editing, but did take off both Saturday and Sunday.

2. Do client editing work an hour a day, except Sunday.
No breaks this week. I need to finish a major project that's ready to be sent to the publisher. I'm so excited for this author, her first published piece. She's so excited, and I really enjoyed having a hand in it.

3. Read and review a book every 10 days, minimum.
I read three books over the last week. I'm in such a reading groove. I published three reviews this week on my review blog, Mom in Love with Fiction. It was a fun mix of different genres, but all good reads.

Congrats! That is so awesome you helping a fellow writer with her first published piece! Yay! And so glad you will continue with #writemotivation

Ooo, I decided to jump on the A-Z train too. Still not sure if that was a good idea hehe.

It sounds like you've had a great month! And well, #writemotivation is always there. We just have the goal-check months every other month, so - come and get cheered on regardless ;)

Here's to a productive April!

Whee hoo!! I admire your get up 'n go. Wha a productive week!

Sue Ann Bowling said...

I'm not doing A to Z because I have a theme per day of the week and I really doubt the combination would work.
Do you ever read and review science fiction?

Tia Bach said...

Jamie, I'm really enjoying #writemotivation. Goals have become an important part of writing for me.

K.T., A to Z should be fun, but it's quite the commitment. Wishing you a great April as well.

Eloise, Thanks! Hope you are doing better. Thinking of you.

Sue Ann, I love all genres, and read and review it all. I pride myself on finding value in all kinds of books.

Hi like the post, working my way through some of the A to Z's (there is a lot to get through too)
