I can't believe I've been doing these progress posts for almost four months now. Looking back on the first ever weekly progress post, I realized a lot of my current projects were on my list even then. I'm not sure how I feel about that. The cleaning and organizing overhaul is a massive project and one that I don't work on equally every day or even every week, so that's why it's still on my list. Plus, I have made progress over the past three and a half months; I just have to look around my living room to see how much.
But there are other projects that I feel bad about not having accomplished anything on yet, mostly those projects waiting in the wings for me to finish other things and get back to work on them. These are projects such as my doll stringing ebook and my novel, things I promise each week I'll get back to work on, but that keep getting pushed back.
Is it a race, though? Do I have to do them right now? When I stop and think about it, I don't really have to get right to work on them. I'm working on other things that are more important at the moment.
Last week didn't see a lot of progress on any projects, though. I worked on a project for one of the Facebook groups that I run, and got my exhibit ready for the Fall Show. That was, unfortunately, the bulk of what I accomplished last week.
This week I'm hoping to get more done with my organization project, and maybe get a couple of large items listed for sale to clear some space.
Doll stringing ebook: I scheduled this for next Monday, and that's still the case. I'm going to try not to have to move it again because I need to get that project done.
Ruby Ransome: I shifted this back another week. Honestly, at this point maybe I won't get to it until closer to NaNoWriMo, or even until NaNoWriMo, and that's okay. I just want to make sure I get my organization project done before NaNoWriMo, so that I can focus on NaNo in November.
Blogging and website maintenance: You can see that last week was a little challenging for me, as I didn't get any other blog work done. I did get some quick content (reels) at the Fall Show over the weekend, and have some more content planned for this week. I think I'm also going to change the title of this category, or maybe I need to separate out social media into its own category. I'll have to think on that.
Other projects: I didn't get much done on my organization project last week, but I'm hoping to catch up in a major way this week. I have lots of ideas for what I want to do next, but there is of course always more to do.
On the horizon: NaNoWirMo is coming up and I need to start looking at plans. At this stage, I probably just need to reach out to the coffee shop that usually hosts our kickoff party and some of our write-ins and make sure they're on board for this year. Not a lot else needs to be planned yet, but pretty soon we'll be planning write-ins and other small events, so I'll start reaching out to other businesses soon too.
I love when the start to a week feels so promising, like there's a lot to do and I'm full of hope that I can get it all done. That being said, today's plans have already gone astray, so we'll see what the week has in store for me!
