Must Do’s 4th to 10th March

Well, after 2 separate illnesses in the last 7 days I will be going to my Faber class tonight even if I’m dying…because tonight they’re critiquing the first 5000 words of Still ARGHHHHH!

In light of what happened last time, as you can imagine, I’m bloody nervous lol. But lets not dwell on that at the moment πŸ˜‰

Last weeks list was…not a complete wash out surprisingly enough. I was shocked that between a nasty cold and a stomach bug, I did actually manage to get something done!

1. Faber homework, inc working on the 250 word synopsis. Nope 😦
2. Add at least 5000 words to Still. I added 2000, which is better than nothing. I’m finding that around 600 words each day I’ve added to it, seems to be comfortable for some reason.
3. Catch up with e mails & blogs. Yep, but this is ongoing every day of every week. Doing it every other day or 3rd day seems to be working better though.
4. Do some work on my goals etc for Happy Club. Done!
5. Do some studying. I managed to finished the James Wood book (How Fiction Works) and I’m just about to start Bestseller by Celia Brayfield.

So this coming week looks like this:

But not much is going to get done tomorrow I can tell you, my stomachs churning already! πŸ˜‰

Wish me luck! I think I’m gunna need it!

What are your writing plans for the week?

  1. Good luck Vicki, I’m sure you’ll be fine. Just remember, it’s all to make your work better and saleable at the end! πŸ˜‰


  2. Vikki, so glad you are on the mend. It’s not easy to write through colds and such. Wish you good feedback on your next 5000 words πŸ™‚ I have completed the last edits on my WIP, am taking one day off to catch up with the mundane and then go full steam on my next project. Look for it in the next few weeks !!


  3. Good luck, Vikki! Well done for getting anything done last week, feeling so poorly. I hope they love Still, and are gentle with their constructive comments. Can’t wait to hear all about it tomorrow (and see a picture of cake!) xxx


    • Thanks Jo πŸ™‚

      I’m not sure they loved it, but I got some very positive comments *phew* lol

      Ha ha ha, well, there’s a picture of cake, but more info on the critique will have to wait until Wednesday…I need to think πŸ™‚



  4. I hope it goes better this time – will be thinking of you. All those bashes on the head make us stand up stronger! (Unless you’re a tent peg, which I sense you are not!) πŸ˜‰


  5. Two separate illnesses in the last seven days.!!….. well I always knew I had to have a cloned sister somewhere on this crazy planet.
    I so sympathize.

    Now just to find a way to make back to back viruses look attractive…. God! who on earth would want to do that, the audience is thinking on the quiet….

    Aha! Trick question…. itΒ΄s a way to distract myself in between the bouts of bronchial hacking. Still thatΒ΄s not enough to stop me reading, and lord knows itΒ΄s about time I started catching up on all the wonderful posts in my neighbourhood blogisphere!

    Crossing my fingers literally and metaphorically for you and wishing you all the best …… gogirlgo!

  7. I can’t tell you enough how awesome you are. By now you would think I would know that you post your to-do’s on Mondays and that I would be prepared with my own list. That is not the case. My goal for the week is to get seriously organized by setting goals and blocking time. In other words, I want to be a mini version of you! I’m having a hard time getting there. Some weeks are better than others. I do well with a set schedule because it keeps me focused, but my life and my real job do not work that way.


    • Ha ha ha, flattery will get you EVERYWHERE Cheryl πŸ˜‰

      Ahhhhh, goal setting, that’s a great way to spend a morning!

      *deep sigh* why does real life always have to get in the way of writing plans 😦

      Good luck honey! I’m behind you 100%!!!!!!



  8. I hope you’re feeling better. I’m feeling much more motivated this week. Writing goals for the week : Finish reading two books – Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald and Woman of Rome : A Life of Elsa Morante by Lily Tuck(the last one’s been going slowly), finish reading a story and send feedback to the person I’m reading it for, catch up on blog and email reading(I’m so there with you), edit fiction and non-fiction pieces I’ve written, and write a little every day. Today has been an unusually good writing day despite the rain continuing to pour and for some odd reason I’ve been in a mood to write a couple of fictional stories, which I rarely do. Hope your week goes well. πŸ™‚
