#ALCGC2017 July Check-In

#ALCGC2017 July Check-In

I created the hashtag #ALCGC2017 for ARHtistic License Creative Goals Challenge for 2017. Feel free to use it to tweet about your goals and your progress.Oil_painting_palette wikipedia

Another month down. How are you doing on your creative goals?

My routine tweak of reading Scripture while I eat breakfast is working out well for me. I’m also trying a new hack during my writing time of setting a timer for 45 minutes for working on projects, and then 15 minutes to look at social media. It’s important to update social media, but I can’t let it dominate my work time, or I never get around to my writing.

I still haven’t organized my study. I cleared off my desk a bit, but it’s cluttered again.

I haven’t written any poetry during June, but I only missed a few days of the Index-Card-a-Day art challenge I’m participating in.

I’m about twenty-eight days ahead on my blog posts; I want to be at least thirty-one days ahead.

I thought I was finished writing The Unicornologist, but I’ve sent it out to my beta readers, and the feedback I’m getting is directing me to another rewrite. <sigh> I was hoping it was ready to send out.7. The Unicorn in Captivity

My practicing guitar, piano, and recorder has been less consistent than I’d like. My evenings are reserved for practicing, but lately I’ve been so exhausted that I fall asleep watching a half-hour of television with Greg (he insists I spend at least that much time with him every day). I used to doze off in the evenings when I was still teaching. I don’t know why it’s happening during retirement. I certainly don’t have the same level of physical and emotional stress. Anyhow, I’ve made it to page 51 in Essential Elements for Guitar, and I’m up to the next-to-last page in Sweet Pipes Recorder Book I.

Enough of my whining. Now it’s your turn. How are you doing with your goals? Don’t be shy! If you’re keeping accountable on your blog, paste a link into the comments below. Or if you don’t have a blog, just tell us your successes and your challenges this past month. And remember to check in on August 1, 2017 to share your progress during July.
