  1. Congrats, Dr. Dan!!! My goal for the week: find some time to write toward a journal article. I’d like to get in 5 to 6 poms on Friday.

  2. Congratulations!!! I finished my article and went to an editing conference. Yay small successes. Writing/nonwriting goals for the week:
    – Write 3 days in a row on 750words
    – connect with every editor I met at Red Pencil via LinkedIn
    – Ask at least 1 editor for an informational interview/coffee

  3. Congrats Dr. Dan!!!!! Well done sir!!
    I didn’t get as much done last week as I wanted to as Mollie (my Dog) passed away on Thursday so I mostly stuck to whatever teaching obligations I had and did that.
    I have a paper that I have to finish for next week and so I’d like to get a storyboard/outline/good direction of that done by Sunday. My two advisors finished fighting over the direction of my dissertation proposal and so now I actually have to get back to work on that and my overall goal is to have a proposal submitted by December before I have my first family vacation in years!
    So for the remainder of this week here is what I intend to do
    Today: 4 poms on candidacy readings, 3 on paper
    Tomorrow: 4 poms on candidacy readings, 4 on paper
    Saturday: 4 poms on dissertation proposal reworking
    Sunday: 4 poms on Dissertation, 4 poms on Paper and 2 on Candidacy readings
