I started week one of the challenge motivated and excited. I was going to stay focused, be productive, and have tons of accomplishments to report this week.
Yeah, you guessed it – that didn’t exactly happen as I anticipated. I got distracted along the path, my attention swayed by genealogy research and television viewing, time that I could have spent editing my novel. Despite the veer off-course, I’m proud to report that I didn’t dwell on the negative (like I have in the past). I accepted the choices made and refocused my attention.
As a result of my renewed determination later in the week, I am almost complete with the edits for part one of my book, I posted new entries on my genealogy and entertainment blogs, and did tons of employment research.
MY GOALS FOR WEEK TWO:
- Finish edits for Part One
- Send out resumes and/or apply for at least three job positions
- Research and write at least two posts for my entertainment blog
How did you do during week one of the Challenge? What kept you moving forward?

Great work, Kelly! I did 2 things (sloowly). I started organizing ideas and information about makeiting The Caregiver (Thanks, Doreen!) and I wrote a scene for my new novel. I am using the challenge to try to move forward steadily on two fronts. I have so many distractions–before I write anything for the new novel I should read everything I worte s far. Or organize it. Or outline it. Or do a blog post. Or get business cards made. Calming down to do Just One (or maybe two) Thing(s) is my biggest challenge!
Organization for writers can be quite a challenge, so kudos to you for taking any step towards getting organized!
Good job pulling the week out Kelly! I am trying:) http://doreenmcgettigan.com/?p=5560
Keep going Kelly. You are a winer!
Thank you, Toni!
