Late checkin, but here goes nothin.

Hey, better late than never, right?  *crosses fingers*

So to complete my first “goal” — I made some better ROW80 goals:

  • Writing: Spend at least 5 hours each week revising Mage Slave. Finish character profiles for the remaining key characters. Shoot for about 10% a week, although I’m not sure that’s realistic at all.  We’ll see!
  • Health & Fitness: Today’s weigh-in prompted more seriousness and motivation in this area.  Gym twice a week. Additional cardio once a week. Track calories every day in Livestrong. Aiming for 1.5 pounds a week.
  • Game: Have all main screens for our game designed by the end of this ROW.  This one is kind of vague, but I think it’s still doable.
  • Reading: Read at least one book, bonus points for 2.  I’m going to start with If You Want To Write: A Book About Art, Independence and Spirit by Brenda Ueland, recommended by Felicia Day on this week’s Flog. (Below if you want to see!) From a quick glance on Amazon I immediately one-click ordered the one that would arrive the soonest.  It seriously looks amazing.  If I get to a second book, it will be fiction, probably Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck. Love the cover!  Also, finish Story Engineering (almost there!).

So how is it going so far?

  • Writing:Spent about 2 hours revising this week so far.  Pretty good I think.
  • Health & Fitness: Did gym today with weights and cardio. Tracked food and was easily under and enjoying myself.  Feeling great!  Hope this lasts.
  • Game: Marathon Friday and Saturday night game workathon – no worries here, full of progress.
  • Reading: Ordered If You Want To Write: A Book About Art, Independence and Spirit. Read a bit more  Story Engineering – should be done soon!

Now that I have some good goals, let’s get this party started!
