Late February check-in :)

Yeah, I've lost track of the weeks, so let's just measure by the part of the month we're up to!

How's everyone going? I've done a lot of photo sorting in recent days, as it's probably the easiest thing on my weekly task list (aside from catching up on reading Michael's Princess Caitlin/Catrina stories, that is). I've got really far ahead in that goal, to make up for the weeks in March/April when I will be out of the country and probably unable to sort any photos at all. My goal is to get that far ahead in other areas, too, though I will probably take some stuff on the plane with me (like printed-out Catrina stories, or printed-out novel chapters to edit, stuff like that). But anyway, the point is that I'm sorting photos but not rushing ahead in any other area. Though I did read an extra Catrina story last night. ;)

I'm very, very close to finishing my first NaNo novel (a YA paranormal, or is it supernatural?) from last year. It's currently at about 60k, and will probably end at not much more than that. Then I have the next novel to move onto, which I reached 50k on but which may be longer than the first (it's sci-fantasy). It's been slow going, writing 1k a week, but it's also been more relaxing than most of my writing projects are.

Anyway... My travels. A friend and I are travelling to Paris, then London, then going on a tour of the U.K., in March/April. Should be fun, and cold, and should leave me with a whole bunch of new photos I will need to sort upon returning home. But I still have a few weeks to go before I get to say I'm leaving! A few more weeks in which to try and make headway with my goals!

How are you all going with your goals/projects/what have you?

Somewhere between Week #5 and Week #6 check-in/up?

Hey everyone! You may have noticed that there's no particular rhyme or reason to when I come by and post here. Mostly it just occurs to me suddenly that, "Oh yeah, I wanna hear how those guys are doing!" So, I guess that's what you can talk about here in the comments - how your weekly goals are coming along so far this year. Have you got any monthly goals instead? Or how about just year-long goals?

My goals are in their usual state, coming along at a slow and steady pace. I now have a new problem to add to the list, though - a possible entire rewrite of a novel I had thought largely "done". I got some really helpful critique, which I shall at some point write about in my "main" blog. For now, I sit and I stew and I plot a possible rewrite.

How are you and your goals going?
