March is coming in with mild weather and even a little bit of sunshine. To be honest, I was hoping for maybe a tiny bit more winter. I’m still edging toward being comfortable in my tent in the ice and snow. Well, by comfortable, what I mean is something more like “confident that I won’t die, and functional the day after.” I got in two more nights last week. And yeah… maybe I’ll get there eventually. Onward to spring, then.
I did a new “Good Habits” spread in my bullet journal. I added a tracker for writing rough draft words, because it seems like that got shuffled off to the side more often than I would have liked during February. I didn’t miss any days, but there were quite a few with very low word counts. I also got rid of the Lepterian revision tracker because, I FINISHED, PEOPLE! The changes are typed, the notes are all checked off. I’m celebrating. Shopping for that reward of mine.
So, February. Short month. Yup. That’s my excuse.
I wrote 9,519 new words, which brings my total for the year up to 21,902. Lower than I’d like, but considering that I have also been working on revisions, I’m not too unhappy with it.
I want more words in March. That’s why I added writing draft words to the goal tracker. To make it a priority, again.
My incredibly minimal “community” goal is to visit blogs and comment on at least two of them each day. I’ll be continuing with the Viking revision, and with reading all the joint winners of the Hugo and Nebula awards. (Yes, still doing that.) A couple of health and fitness goals. I need to exercise more. Eat right. Remember to take my vitamins. Get outside more.
So, what about you? How was your February? What do you have going for March?
