It’s Friday! That means it’s #AccountaClub time! And this week, I have writing news.
I have finally, finally finished the first draft of the manuscript I’ve been working on since about the time of the dinosaurs.
Well, maybe not quite that long.
But a long time, nonetheless. Can I get a woo-hoo?
So yes, editing lies ahead, but it’s been a long time since I finished a novel draft. Good week in that respect.
Fitness, five days, five workouts, though this week was quite a drag. We were doing benchmarks, where we test our progress over the year, and I improved my numbers so I guess that’s a win. Still I’m happy to have a rest day tomorrow.
And now we’re nearly through July. Not sure how it keeps flying like this, but it sure does.
It wasn’t a terribly productive week, as I was caught up in the world and other stuff, so the writing is nothing really to report. It was an odd week; there was the pre-Mueller testimony, the testimony and the post-Mueller testimony.
And there was some personal stuff as well, to layer on to the political madness.
As happens in 2019.
Fitness was great though, five days, five workouts.
And that’s June. Isn’t it bizarre? We’re here already. It’s tough to believe, June already gone.
It’s raining again, in a kind of a resigned, slightly dismal way, with streaks on the windows and a quiet gray hanging in the air. Not a joyful Friday, weather-wise at least.
On to the nitty-gritty, the #AccountaClub part where we talk how we’re doing with our ongoing goals.
Writing was…tepid. I’m not going to lie to you. I find that the louder the political drums beat, the harder it is for me to detach and focus on imaginary worlds. Probably because I feel like I should be doing something more concrete to try to stem this muddy tide.
Fitness, though, went really well, five days, five workouts, and I’ve just marked off the last one of June. It’s helping tremendously, I think, sticking to this fitness program. In case you’ve missed it, I like Daily Burn, a streaming channel that has live workouts five days a week, all new, plus programs and a whole library of past workouts. The variety is fantastic for me.
