I kept moving forward during week two of the challenge, though my steps were small. First, let’s recap what my goals were for last week:
- 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’d I do? Did I accomplish all I set out to? Not exactly, but I had quite a productive week nonetheless.
I finished the edits for part one of my YA novel within 24 hours of posting last week’s entry. I wrote five entries for my entertainment blog and researched one. I still need to confirm some technical elements before posting, so stay tuned! As for the job search…
When one doors closes, the rest stay open but remain unmarked. However, when one door swings open, so do the rest on that floor. Part of moving forward requires that I believe in my abilities and the goals I hold most dear. In order to progress, develop, and grow (professionally and personally), I must step outside my comfort zone and challenge myself.
The post just prior to this one (Writing to Inspire…and Earn a Living) was not comfortable to write but necessary. As such, I’ve moved from the muddy forest floor to an office complex hallway filled with open doors and streaming light.
The coming week is bound to be quite interesting, and I’m sure to have lots to report next Thursday!
