Back on the #row80 Boat

Now that Row80 has a link, I’m back. I can’t explain why the link even matters, but it does. I was lost without it. Don’t you hate it when you put your Ipod on shuffle and you have to keep skipping Christmas music ;(  On with the goals.

www-ckrich-com 2017 Goals for Row80

  • Write 200,000 words. I did write a tiny bit yesterday. maybe 200 words or so. I stopped because it’s been so long since I worked on my WIP. I decided I should read what I already have. This morning I printed the pages out, intending to read them later today. Looking at the printed sheets, I need to adjust the settings for page setup. No clue how to do that in scrivener. 2,401 words written this year.
  • Edit 600 pages. I settled on a short fantasy story. I’ll pass this on to critique group in a few weeks. Since I just worked on a cozy, my next work for editing is one that might be called magic realism. Maybe. Not real sure of the genre. It has a cool twist at the end. That brings the yearly total to 227/600 pages.
  • Walk 2,600,000 steps.
    I’m making slow progress. I walked 6.3 miles this week. I also added 15 minutes of calisthenics. Not every day. I’m not crazy. I hate calisthenics. 159,702 /2.6 millionMy goal is 50,000 steps a week. I fell just shy of the mark with 45,422 steps.
  • Read 80 books. I finished Corroded by Carrie Dalby.  A wonderful YA read. I also finished reading Plot &Structure by James Scott Bell.  Another book I highly recommend. I wish I had read it years ago. I started A Monster Calls last night. Amazing so far. I stayed up way past my bedtime reading. Finished over half of the book already. Completed 8/80 books this year.
  • Find the shipwreck at Ft. Morgan. This is a goal for summer so, check back later.
  • Complete devotional.  I restarted this for February and I am on track. So far. Dropping. Don’t ask.

There you go. Not bad. Even though I didn’t meet two goals, I still made progress. Let’s face it. Any time I spend moving is a good thing. I think I need to memorize the opening dance sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy. No, I will not post it on Youtube when I’m done. I’m not breaking the internet.

How did your week go?

  1. I know what you mean about being lost without the linky…. I like that there is a Facebook group, but I can never rely on using it. Too many distractions there…

    Looks like some serious progress in those goals (even the red marks are more like ‘close, but not quite’ marks). Kudos!

  2. Wow! How neat to see such specific annual goals. Even if I translate that massive 200,000 words down to a weekly 5,000, it seems amazing to me as I work so much more slowly,. but your story lines and array of projects suggest you WILL be successful. Have a great week.
