Here we are again, another Sunday ROW80* check in.
I’m a little disappointed in my progress this week. I didn’t miss by much, but what I did miss was due to poor time management. I’ll be working on that this week.
Here’s where I’m at now and where I’m going:
I finished the STO2 and M scenes and worked up editing notes for LLF and the scene that comes right after (let’s call it NA).
I should be pleased, as I hit my updated goal. Still, I’d like to be faster and more efficient with these scene rewrites. My problem is that I’m often putting my writing off until the end of the day, when I’m tired and short on creativity. I need to put the writing first…even if it means getting up a little earlier.
Rewrite LLF and NA.
On target for practice hours, but my intonation is still rough. Turns out I’m tensing up (I suspect it’s because I’m trying too hard to control the bow).
I’m a little more than halfway through O Come, O Come Emmanuel. There’re higher bits driving me nuts, but I’m not ready to throw in the towel and drop them an octave…yet.
Same as last week, really. Practice goals of 1.5 – 2 hours daily (with an optional day off). Training my ear to play in tune. Relaxing the tension in my bow hand so the sound can flow.
I did 4/5 workouts. There’s no reason I couldn’t have done all five, except I left the workouts until the end of the day on one too many days. This is another item I have to move up earlier in the day.
I’m doing well on IF and nutrition. It’s become pretty routine. I won’t be including it in the ROW80* goals from now on, unless something changes.
Workout at least five days. Schedule workouts before lunch.
We enjoyed our first family movie night in a long time. We introduced the kids to The Matrix.
It looks like movies are going to be the family night favorite for a while. Everyone seems to have a long list.
*ROW80, also known as a Round of Words in 80 days is an opportunity for us to set goals (for writing and/or other areas) and share them with a community ready to keep you accountable and cheer you on. If you’re interested in ROW80, you can find more info here and the latest check in post here.
How are you doing on your progress? Are you winning the race or falling behind?
