Distracted–Row 80 Check-in

This is going to be a short one. I’ve been off for the last few days. I’m feeling a little down, and therefore distracted. So, I decided to make today a day of self-care. I washed my hair this morning. This afternoon it’s a facial and a pedicure. I have a pretty shade of lavender nail polish that always lifts my spirits. Can’t wait to see it on my toes again. Let’s get to the writing.

Even though things haven’t been going quite the way I ‘d like them to go, I haven’t been completely neglecting my goals. I have written every day. I’m still working on my NaNo novel. I have not hit the target words per day in a few days. But I am also not so far behind that the task is insurmountable. Week two has been slower but still progressive thus far. I am happy to still be moving forward, snail’s pace and all. Surprisingly, I am happy with what I’ve written. It’s rough, of course, but still coherent enough that  I can see the growth in my writing from last year to this year. That’s something worth celebrating.

I am hoping to be perkier and more productive by next check-in. Until then, I hope things are going well for you guys. Catch you later.

  1. It seems a little bit of a funk has been going around to everyone lately! Your remedy for it sounds divine; color me jealous, I’m stuck going back to work today!

    Sometimes you’ve just got to pamper yourself a little. And you’ll come back renewed and doing better than ever! Enjoy the self-care day, Yolanda! You’ve earned it, and I hope the rest of your week starts getting better!

  2. Yolanda! Hang in there.. slow and steady gets it done.. 🙂

    The whole self-pampering sounds like a wonderful idea and may just be what you need to lift your spirits..

    Happy writing!


  3. Glad to see you’re taking some time for yourself. Do we get to see pictures of the lavender toes? 😀 Great to hear that you’re still getting in some writing despite the drearies (that’s what I call those random down times that strike now and then). Hang in there!

  4. Thanks Kim! And sure, I’ll post a picture next check-in. LOL
