March is coming to a close, and so is the first round of 2013. It wasn’t a spectacular round in terms of accomplishing my goals, but I’ve been busy. Regardless, I’m still working toward the things I want to accomplish and doing some things I truly love to do.
This round has been a productive one overall, and it definitely showed me what I’m capable of. Writing 1,000 words a day is tough, but I’m going to try to carry that goal into all subsequent rounds. It definitely allows you to get some serious writing done. I’ve started a lot of projects and even finished a few of them.
Here’s to a solid round 1 and an even better round 2!
Here’s a list of my accomplishments for this first round:
-Decided to rewrite some major plot points of L1.
-Got Google Verified, which means my picture will show up next to articles I’ve written for Hypable!
-I wrote 5,000 words in one day. Considering how busy I’ve been, this is pretty amazing to me.
-Finished writing W1!
-Started writing W2!
-I decided and started implementing working at home more often. I can’t even begin to tell you how appreciative I am of my boss. It’s been such a life-saver to have more flexible hours.
-Saw Warm Bodies and LOVED it!
-Finished Divergent, The Darkest Minds, Beautiful Creatures, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
-Hypable hit 20,000 published articles, and I’ve written over 100!
-I went to Philadelphia to catch a pre-screening of The Host. I also went to a book signing with Stephenie Meyer, Jake Abel, and Max Irons. The best part, though, was meeting two of my Hypable coworkers – Mitch and Laura!
-Hypable was at the Oscars. THE OSCARS, PEOPLE.
-I AM GOING TO COMIC CON IN JULY. No, I can’t write that sentence without putting it in caps. It’s against the laws of the universe.
-Hypable started up ReWatchable and Book Hype, two new and totally awesome podcasts that I’m particularly proud to be a part of.
-I have a friend working on a cover for my short story collection. It’s going to be awesome.
-I got a signed George Watsky CD, which is kind of a dream come true.
-I got an interview with one of my favorite authors and an artist I really admire. Both of those should be going up sometime soon.
Total points earned in Round 1: 580
Total words written for this round: 57,514
Total words written since January 1, 2013: 57,514
This round really didn’t feel like anything spectacular, but looking over my list, I’m pretty happy with it! Especially considering I wrote almost 60,000 words in just a couple of months. That’s insane!
