…Violets are blue. We all know setting goals is good for you.
The current ROW80 round began July 3, but folks are welcome to jump in at any time. So here I go.
Long Term Goal: Complete the “official” first draft of my WIP manuscript by the end of this year.
Short Term Goal: Finish the scene I’m currently reworking (let’s call it STO) and begin the next.
I’ve got a strings camp coming up next week. My daughter, who plays the violin, and I are both participating. She’s been playing for 2.5 years, and I’ve been playing for 2.5 months, but the camp is for all levels. We’ve both been working on the music for several weeks now, and most of my cello goals revolve around gaining the skill necessary to make it through the camp and the finale performance.
Long Term Goal: To be able to play any piece I choose smoothly, easily and with good intonation and passion.
Short Term Goals:
A minimum of 2 hours of daily practice on the weekends, including at least 30 minutes dedicated to improving my ability to play in tune and hear when I’m out of tune.
During the week, in addition to the 2.5 hours of practice at camp, I’ll practice a minimum of an hour daily with at least 30 minutes dedicated to improving tune.
Long Term Goals: Improve over all fitness, especially strength, flexibility and endurance.
Short Term Goals: Continue to use intermittent fasting while keeping my nutritional levels up and work out at least 5 days a week (fairly short, gentle workouts due to an ankle injury).
Wrap up the homeschool year and prep for this fall.
Reinstitute family game/movie night once a week.
