Hello AccounAbles! It’s Friday, so it’s time to dish about our weeks and our goals and how things are going.
Not my most productive week, writing-wise. These weeks happen, though, ups and downs are inevitable. I’ve been bad about sleeping and being regimented about getting to bed, and it absolutely shows for me the next day. That’s definitely something I need to work on.
Fitness-wise, though, I still powered through 5 live workouts this week, and I have to tell you, I really, really, really didn’t wanna today. I was hoping for some yoga, but it was old-school-style cardio, which is very much not yoga.
It was also one of my favorite instructors, Cheri, who is a rare treat, so that did balance it out. I don’t know if the workouts were harder this week than average, but I’m feeling them more.
Lack of sleep?
Something to see about next week.
The host did mention they were tough workouts, so maybe they actually were more physically challenging. Maybe fitness for me this week was just more challenging.
But I did it, so that’s cool.
Anyway, that’s me this week. How was your week?

You inspired me to try Daily Burn a while ago, and it was really cool! My problem is that none of my suitable exercise spaces in this house are air conditioned. (first world problems in the third world) I know, weak of me to complain about the weather when it’s 80* at 10am, but there you have it! Someday I’ll get back into cardio.
I’m discovering the trouble with editing and writing at the same time. It’s just hard to switch gears in the same day! I finished the first revision, and I’m trying the “rewrite the whole thing” trick, which is really working well.
The newly inspired “follow my character as she makes her own decisions” story is moving along as the muse strikes me. That’s much easier than saying “must write for x hours a day”. Inspiration seems to strike most when I’m in motion – taking a walk, or riding on the back of the motorbike. So that’s fun!

I don’t think that’s an invalid complaint AT ALL, that’s hot and these workouts are HARD. I can see lack of air conditioning being a real problem. Glad you like it though, I hope you can figure out a way to make it work!
It really is hard! Also what’s the “rewrite the whole thing” trick? I haven’t heard that before!
That’s great, you’re finding what works for you and what doesn’t. And I think there is scientific evidence to back you up on that motion thing.
Sounds like you’ve had a really fantastic week!
Rewriting the whole thing is taking your draft – opening it on your computer or the latest printed manuscript – and retyping it in a clean document, making changes as they go. It’s easier to feel what needs to be changed, because the first time you write it is in fits and starts, and you’re thinking about plot and character and tension… what will or won’t work. So by copying it with the plot complete and all the characters fully developed, you can freely edit as you go. I guess. I do think it’s helpful to me.

HUH, that’s a really interesting method!
I think I am too lazy for that method.
But I can see how it would be really helpful, and essentially I end up rewriting everything anyway!!!
