I think one day to wallow and be pitiful every six months is okay, but I'm over it now. I'm getting stuff done with the day job, I got a good night's sleep last night, and I met with my 50/50 challengers (students) today to discuss our progress.
Student challenge-Still got 21 out of 25 and then one of the dropouts (who dropped out this week) asked if he could make up the words and restart today. I said yes. I also told the dropouts they'd still be allowed to go to the party at the end of the challenge because they did make it about 2 weeks.
My own challenge- I'm still plugging away. Plus, in conjunction with the 100 words a day for 100 days challenge, I'm also signing up for a 301 words a day for 31 days challenge in the month of October with my local Austin RWA chapter. I know, I'm a glutton for punishment!
My writing- I've decided to just take things one step at a time. I think yesterday I was overwhelmed. So last night and tonight I'm typing up the 25 pages I wrote on the retreat. Then this weekend I'm going to continue and try to finish the TCAFS draft again. I decided I am entering this in the GH and so that is going to be my priority now. Also, this weekend I'll take a look at my business plan and revamp it according to my latest challenges (difficulties, not writing challenges). I've got so many stories playing in my head and so many things I want to do from the business side of writing, I MUST reorganize!
Thanks for rallying around me and helping me get back on my writing feet.
