The Sun Returns (and other updates)

I finally bought Scrivener! Woo! Since April, I’ve been rationing my dwindling supply of trial days while I wait to have enough money to buy the full product. Even with the discount code from winning CampNaNoWriMo, I’ve had to wait this long thanks to a number of unexpected expenses. Hopefully, now having full access will kick my productivity into hyperdrive. Or maybe just low gear – anything will be an improvement 😛

  • Practice Duolingo everyday – 6/7
  • Listen to music/watch a show in one of my target languages twice a week – *quickly listens to some Swedish pop* done
  • Write 500 words every week day (2500 a week) – I wrote 4,000 this week, which I’m really pleased with. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to write this week coming though but it should balance out over all. 🙂
  • Read a book a fortnight – I just finished Close Call and started Sailing to Sarantium
  • Keep on top of my CELTA coursework – so far, so good 🙂
  • Visit three new blogs a week – I visited one.
  • Post a #bookstagram post on instagram at least once a week – I posted a pic of all the books I’ve bought from work in the past few weeks. You can see it in the sidebar. I may have gone a tad overboard….
  • Publish one non-blog-hop post a week – not this week

This week has been one of my more productive weeks for a while.

How did you fare this week?

    Looks like you are doing great on your goals. Me? Not so much.

    I’ve been tempted to look into Scrivener, but as much as I hate change, I don’t know if I would tolerate the learning curve. I think my productivity would take such a hit I might not recover. We’ll see. Maybe one of these days.

      I honestly thought the same at first. I got the 30day trial and watched a few tutorials. The learning curve is steep but you don’t need to master all the functions right away (or ever, really) and it keeps everything in one place which I find super handy. 🙂

    I haven’t been doing well, to be honest. Between my knee injury and general exhaustion, I haven’t been able to get as much done as I wanted. But tomorrow starts a new week!

    Whoohoo for Scrivener! I have it, but all I’ve done so far is outlining.

    Nice work this week!

    I… see… PROGRESS! *joins in the happy dance*

    Who knows? Maybe that slump we were experiencing earlier has to do with some planetary alignment or something… either way, looks like we’re getting somewhere now. WOOT!
