They say if you want to be good at something you need to practice every day. I started Writing About Writing as a way of keeping myself accountable for how much I was writing outside of my school work. Everything counts. Emails, journals, scripts, blogging, even excessive tweeting.
Over time this space has become a way of keeping track of weekly goals in other areas of my life as well as writing. A statement of what I’ve done, and what I want to do. A weekly record of my successes and failures, for better or for worse.

Whoa, talk about a serious dip in jounaling last week. Only one entry for the entire week! What is this? Probably anarchy. Other than that colossal failure (along with the failure to do quiet times for most of this week), I’m pretty happy with the other writing I’ve done. Notes aren’t that intense of writing, but they are important, especially in this class. I do wish there was more of a chance to talk to my classmates about our projects, but I suppose I’ll have to create that time.
As I’m sure is expected my goal for this week is journaling and quiet time. I’ll say five days this week as a goal, but I’m not so secretly hoping for all seven. Other than that, I need to do a little bit more blogging this week because I don’t have ALL of the rest of the month planned.
