Check in on the go

Quick post today. I am on my lunch break at the moment. My new schedule is taking some getting used to. I am working from noon to nine pm. Before this, it was eight to five. So now, my work day gets started at a time that used to mark
the halfway point. Even my meals are off schedule.

As for my ROW goals, that has been going a little slower. There hasn’t been as much writing as I would like. I did finish reading A Storm of Swords though. Reading just one of those huge epic fantasies is like
reading three average length novels. On to the next. Hope all is well with you guys. Until next time.

Rowing, Rowing, Rowing

I was gone all day on Sunday. Mother’s Day festivities had my complete attention. And so, I skipped Sunday’s check in. Tempted as I was, I just couldn’t let today pass without posting.  Things are going well. I’ve been getting good feedback on the job and I couldn’t be happier about it. My roommate and I have found a new apartment complex. We love the floor plans and the complex is much nicer than our current one. Moving there would be cheaper. It would put us closer to work. Best of all, there would be no highway time necessary. I soooo hate traffic. Packing has been added to my to-do list. As for ROW goals, I’ve been doing well there too.

Last week was actually pretty awesome. I had four strong writing days. The word counts weren’t extremely high, but that hasn’t been my focus for quite a while. It’s more about consistency for me. Next week, my schedule will change again. I’m hoping that this new regime will be more writer friendly. I finally had the bright idea to check for a WordPress app today and downloaded it. That should make posting easier. If it works out the way I’d like, then I’ll go to posting twice a week again.

I am still reading A Storm of Swords. I’d be done already if I still had time to sit and read for hours. That’s not the case. I get my reading in where I can. Luckily, reading is relaxing for me. So, it counts as stress management too. 🙂 Well, that’s all for now. I hope things are rolling along for you guys too. Until Sunday.

Progress

Good news. I actually got some things done this week. I am so excited. This week has been much more progressive than the previous ones.  I got a workout in every day before work. I was able to meditate every day too. Those two accomplishments had me jazzed because they keep my stress levels down. It is easier for me to write when I’m clear-headed. I was able to hit my goal of two writing days during the work week. I think I have a story coming together.

I’m finally learning the ins and outs of my new phone. I am looking for apps that will allow me to write on my smartphone and easily sync up documents with my computer. Any apps that help with inspiration or productivity would be awesome too. I’ve been doing some research, but I’d like to get any opinions that you guys may have. I have an android phone by the way.

As for reading, I’ve started the third installment of George R. R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and FireA Storm of Swords has gotten off to a brilliant start just as the others have. I am totally stoked and engrossed. It’s awesome watching the show and reading what happens next at the same time.

I feel like I’ve got my momentum back. My schedule will change again in the next two weeks, but I’m not worried. I starting to get the hang of managing it all. I hope that all is well with you guys. Please hit me up with any suggestions for apps. Best of  luck to you all.
