ROW80 Check-In and Journaling...Healthy

Well, we're getting close to the end of the second round of ROW80 and have I accomplished anything?  I would have to say yes.  I had to take a break for a few weeks in this round, but when I jumped back in, I started journaling every day and have done so now for almost three weeks.  That's a major accomplishment for someone who was so bad about it before.  Again, I owe a debt of gratitude to C. Beth and her wonderful site, The One-Minute Writer, for keeping me motivated and accountable.  Now I didn't do much in the form of research because I found I was having to scrap my original story idea.  I just recently came up with another one and will proceed with my research.  I have one book that I had to order and I may have to make a trip to the library.  A couple of weeks ago, I added a goal to write a flash fiction piece for a contest I agreed to enter upon losing a reading duel with a blogging friend of mine.  It is due tomorrow and I have been working on it all day...and I'm still working on it.  I will get it finished!

So, here are the goals I will continue to work on this round (minus the short story since I'm finishing it tonight):

1 to 1.5 hours daily:
--researching WIP
--reading books on the craft, even if only one page
--continue to journal daily

Here's my One-Minute Writer piece for today:

Being healthy is in mind and body.  I think people that read a lot (of course I do!) keep their minds healthy.  As far as physical health, I don't think you have to be really thin to be healthy.  Just physically fit and at a healthy weight for yourself.  This is something I'm working on right now.


I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam.
