So. *sigh* I had a little meltdown at the end of the week, when I put too much pressure on myself to revise. Lesson learned. I spent the weekend healing from it, and am now, slowly getting back in the saddle.
My goals for the week are to build my momentum back up, and to not assign myself unattainable goals. At some point last week, I decided that I would get one chapter a day done, and that was too much. It may not seem like too much, but I'm averaging one chapter in about four hours, and that is too much time to devote to writing, based on how much time I need to spend with children and husband and laundry. :) So, seriously, lesson learned. What I couldn't have predicted was my brain leakage from the stress--stress that I applied myself. Jeez.
So, instead of entertaining you with a fabulous post, I'm just going to get back to my writing. And if you need some alternate form of entertainment, here's WIBIJ! An hour jam-packed with the most fun you could have in the blogosphere--game starting at 1PM EST on Wednesday.
I'll even lend you my own personal Storm Trooper to keep you on your writing goals this week--and to make sure that you don't get in over your head. (Okay, for any of you Star Wars geeks out there, I know this particular character is not a Storm Trooper. However, I'm old school Star Wars, and I am pretending that I, II, and III, never actually happened. Horrible movies. Anakin who???)
So, what lessons have you learned about your limit for writing each week? What happens when you cross your limit? Do you apply unnecessary stress on yourself? How do you heal from that? (I think I read three books this weekend.) What are your goals for the week? And, most importantly, will I see you over at WIBIJ on some point on Wednesday? The Storm Trooper insists on your presence! :)
