Writing Update – Plowing the Field

I am plowing through, baby!

Too many details to go into, but this week was a whopper. I’ve churned out the work in all directions. I’ve been editing, writing, negotiating, and picking the brains of other writers for useful bits of information. You might be next on the list. This week wasn’t all gravy, but the up definately outweighs the down.

In terms of actual Row80 goals:

All three met.

(Click here for a refresher on my goals.)

In other aspects of my life – good news on all fronts and I’m happy to take even miniscule positive flow. The smelt are shoaling in the river, an activity that attracts birds by the thousands. We’ve counted dozens of bald eagles over the last week and nearly got side-swiped by one on the way to school. You never appreciate how large they are until they get up close and personal…

Hope your Row80 goals are chugging along like the little engine that could!

    Isn’t it awesome to just summarize our efforts into this fabulous little sentence, “All Goals Met”? So happy for you. Keep plowing the field, girl and have a fantastic week.

    Awww, I’m so jealous about the bold eagles. They are majestic creatures.

      It does feel good to meet goals! Now if I can finish out this round with my goals completed I will be doing happy bouncy chair dancing.

      The eagles are awesome. Most of the time we see them so high up you can’t really appreciate the fact that it’s an eagle – but now they’re all hanging out by the river, shoulders hunched looking like a bunch of fishing hoodlums.

      Thanks Elodie!

      I’d like to say I took that picture of the eagle, but alas it’s a stock photo. The birds are amazing though…if I’d taken that picture it would have included one wingtip and a tree or muddy field or something.

    *high five* What a check in. You’ve inspired me, and I needed a litte inspiration after a day spent doing taxes. 😉

      Thanks Tia!

      Some weeks are better than others but at least it’s forward movement and that always makes the accountability easier to meet.
