It’s been a productive week so far, and it’s only Wednesday!

The exciting news is that today it became official…I will be stage managing The Tempest for GreenStage this summer! This is going to be a great project, and I’m totally psyched about working with the director.

And I’ve been making good progress on my ROW80 goals this week. I’ve made a submission, written a poem, and a blog entry for Hugo House.

This could help explain why I’m so exhausted today…

See how the other intrepid ROW80 writers are faring here.

…as long as it’s the right kind.

Yesterday I did not watch the Superbowl. My latest Hugo House blog post explains what I did instead, and why I have a prediliction for a certain kind of porn.

Getting my little duckies all in a row (via Yahoo images)

This week has been far more productive than last week.

#1 – Edit “Elliott”: Okay, not with this goal. Still haven’t started. But I’m starting to feel the itch that the time will be right very soon.

#2 – Submit twice a month: I only submitted once this month. The story I wrote for my second submission did not turn out well, so I scrapped it. BUT…a poem I submitted in December to a national contest, judged by the poetry editor of Writer’s Digest magazine, came in #5. I was (and am) very excited about that!!

#3 – Post once or twice a week on the blog: Okay, I haven’t really posted much here other than the ROW80 updates, but I figure the blog posts I’m creating for the Hugo House sort of count, because if I wasn’t writing them for HH, I’d be putting them up here on my blog anyway. This one compares books to the movies they inspire. Guess which I think is better?

#4 – Write a poem every week: I wrote a poem for the HH blog, too, for the Word of the Day section. That day’s word was gloaming. It’s not a great poem by any means, but at least I was writing.

#5 – Read a story a day: Doing fairly well with this one, although I think I missed a day or two this week. I’ve decided to apply for grad school, so much of this week has been spent getting my acacemic ducks in a row, as well as writing the all-important and dreaded personal statement. Everything is due by Tuesday. Luckily, I’m almost finished with that (damn  darn brilliant) personal statement.

So that’s been my week. See how everyone else is doing here.

This has been an interesting week in terms of my writing goals. I wanted to step up the posting non-ROW80 stuff here, but I don’t think that’s going to happen this week. You see, I’ve decided to apply for grad school, and the applications are due in a week. So I’ve been mostly focusing on the bureaucracy that entails, as well as writing the (dreaded) personal statement.

So…while I’m pretty sure I won’t be meeting my goals completely for the week (I did manage to write an entry for the Hugo House blog, although not sure when it will go up), I’m also pretty sure I won’t mind. Especially if my application is successful.

See how my fellow intrepid writers are doing here.

Keep on keeping on…

This week has gotten off to a busy start. Especially today…I covered two different co-workers’ shifts at work today, went downtown to put in my internship hours, and dropped off and picked up the Little One from preschool.

So while this week has been a bit better emotionally than last week, it’s been difficult to get much accomplished on my ROW80 goals for the week. I haven’t really posted anything of significance to this blog yet. I still haven’t started editing my short story (I’m going to hit the snooze button on that one again). But I did write a poem. I’ve kept up with reading a story a day. And I wrote an “official” blog post for my internship at Hugo House. You can read it here. I hope you will, and have fun doing so. I had fun writing it.

It’s been a long day, and I’m really tired, so I think this is going to suffice for my Wednesday check in.

Check the status of everyone else here. Good luck!

This is the writing prompt I wrote for the Hugo House blog today. I think I need to take my own advice…it’s time to get out of my writing comfort zone. But how to do that? Hmm. The possibilities are endless.
