Week 1 Wrap-Up

We made it to the end of week one–give yourselves a pat on the back, and then let us know how you did this week in the comments, and what you plan to do for week two. Did you make your goal for the week? If not, did you lay out too much to do for yourself, or did something prevent you from getting to everything on your to-do list? If you’re not sure, consider making a more detailed plan for yourself this week–Gina Hiatt has some advice on this over at the Academic Ladder Blog. Don’t forget to post in the comments, and have a great weekend!

  1. Knocked out about 1500 words this Monday through Friday. Completed four pomodoros on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and two on Friday. I should bust out about 5 today and hopefull will bring the draft up to about 3000 words by the end of the day!

    I did reach my goals this week and need to keep it up for the following week two!

    For this coming week I’d like to beat my pomodoro total (and bring it up to about 15).

    At the end of the week I am going to clean up what I’ve written – i.e. condense and decide where I need to expand. My goal is to have 10 pages written by next Friday.

  2. greetings pals, I am late to the game! I have been training at the writing center since I got off the plane and feverishly revising the chapter I wrote in August (I’m sending this mess to my workshop group by tomorrow- or else!). I’m looking forward to tabling the chapter for a while. I haven’t yet made any concrete goals, but it’s looking like this will be a semester of reading about Chicago (yay!) and fellowship applications. I’d also like to come up with a more concrete chapter outline and finish organizing the research I did last summer. There’s also an AHA conference paper to write.

    For this week… I need to figure out what fellowships and when, and make a very ass-kicking list of books and articles to read in the next month and make notes on the ones I already have.

    can you take my old blog off your blog list?
