For those tuning into this round my master goals list is here. The list of everyone participating in this round is here.
AFTER ACTION REVIEW
Took Monday off of work to finish recovering from my weekend cold. It was definitely helpful/needed since I finally got rid of the deep cough. It also meant that I specifically choose to not exercise on Monday to help with the recovery. Instead I did some gaming and reading and some of my milder computer tasks. It worked out well since that meant that I had more time today to focus on the more important stuff.
The key to this format is listening to my body and flexibility in the schedule. Having the due dates at all just keeps them on the calendar, making sure they get rescheduled when they don't get done. Which is to say that it's all going well!
Happily completed two of my bigger projects!
The planned to be completed this week project was finishing going through my backlog of SS, reading them fresh, and putting together an editing plan for each. The idea is that I'll know what the stories are like currently, instead of the rose tinted version from in my head. I'll also know what they need to get fixed. Editing is a skill that I honed a lot in the last two years so applying it to older works just makes sense. This is also a basic way of keeping an inventory in my head of what SS can be sent out. The next steps are to find places to send one of these stories, and then with a deadline/motivation, do the edits and send it out. I'm excited to finish this fairly major step, and without any angst/anxiety.
The other was my upcycling project, which I was worried about completing on time last week. Well, I decided that since I was still missing a number of the parts needed for previously planned projects I should look into a new one. I have a handful of old picture frames that I'm looking to do something with. (That something might end up being putting photos in them.) But some of them aren't my style anyways. So I started to look up options and found one that I already had all of the supplies for! Simple yet effective, I emptied a frame then staple gunned some screen to the back, and bam! Earring holder! I love projects like this, both useful and beautiful!
All basic minigoals completed, no stretch goals done since I'm still recovering from the cold and my energy/brain levels are low. I did some active thinking about the new SS, but nothing that resembles a plot yet.
