Today is our Report In Day

******* Today is The Day.*******
Every Monday, our merry band of dedicated authors report in with their progress. We've set goals for the quarter, January through March.

I have not progressed at all in my revision goals, which shames me as moderator. The neat thing about this group, though, is that reporting failure usually merits external encouragement, which cancels out the internal disparagement. So I was able to break the block and put in two hours of writing time this morning.

I'll be back next Monday, and I'm sure I'll have met my goal of three revised chapters for the week.

Out, gorilla testicles... in my case

Joyce,
It's fantastic that you got two hours in. WTG!

My week wasn't exactly stellar, and as it happens my goal was negative. I needed to remove 100 pages of little worth, which is sometimes easier than adding 100 pages of great-thought provoking weight!

I spent far too much time procrastinating, and doing other things... such as getting my newsletter together, and finding a creative way of getting someone else to write a poem about me for me.

The challenge rules in my newsletter state that the poem has to be publishable and appropriate.

Yay Joyce on the two hours of writing.

Rowena, yikes on removing 100 pages. I cringe at that.

I wrote roughly 15 pages. Not the 40 I'd hoped for but shooting high this week.
