The Word Nerd Co-op

Yikes! Halfway? Crap…

Filed under: Goals — apriljaimi @ 3:41 pm

So seeing it spelled out in type like that, made it real. Halfway? Seriously? I am doing well on meeting my weekly goals for times to sit down and write, which is good, but I am not being as productive as I’d like. It’s a function of life with three boys running around, summer time and the lovely weather, and that last week we were in Florida for a much-needed family vacation.

But now that we are back, game on…I will try to be better about not just screwing off and getting down to business. I really would like to have a finished product by the end of the summer. It helps to have a partner to be accountable to, thanks Serena!



  1. I hope that I have helped you out. I know you have kept me on track. I think we should extend this Co-Op beyond the summer. I think it has been great to have someone check in on me and make me want to meet those goals I set for myself.

    You’ve helped me get that grant application in to the agency, and you have helped with the short story. I think I may have all the edits I want completed by the end of my vacation. Then it’s on to the novel.

  2. I know how you feel when you believe that you are not being as productive as you would like and I have really nothing going on. During my first year of college is when I’ll be my busiest, but I’m going to keep on writing. Sorry to cut this comment short, but I have to go out today with my father and sister. Best of luck to you. ^_^

  3. Good job! I too am suffering from the overwhelmings (yes… I just made up a word). My book idea has stalled because of a conflict in setting (I want it to be set in during WWII, it wants to be set in the Late 1950s… we can’t seem to come to a suitable agreement!). My short peices that I am/was revising are coming along. I just have to get the nerve up to find a place or two to submit to! Keep on truckin’ all you writer types!
