Depends on whether you’re a glass half full or half empty type. For me, it’s always half full. Optimist. Always have been.
So, this is the 3rd week of the new year and how have I done with my targets?
1 story sent to a contest? Missed, but I’ve sent 1 today and will attempt to do another this week.
1 story to a magazine? Missed, but I’ll attempt to make that up this week.
Reading target is for a book a week. I’m currently reading book number 6, so well ahead of target there. Good.
Editing? I’ve done another chapter of the fantasy and a short story.
Writing? A short story finished and another written from scratch.
Excuses? Well, I had a doctor’s appointment on Monday, which took up the morning. On Sunday, I took my daughter back to university, which took up the whole day. I’m still doing the day job, which takes up another 2½ days. And I still need to take my regular rests to deal with the ME/CFS. And, from time to time, I like to relax a little, take a walk with my wife, spend some quality time with her, you know?
So, how do I feel about the week? All things considered, I’m satisfied I’ve done what I could.
