A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w30

This weekend I binged watched a lot of YouTube stand-up comedy acts.

I read much less this week. Let me try to blame other factors.

  1. Workload is increasing.
  2. Commute time is increasing and I don’t feel like reading when it is raining cats and dogs outside; when there is bumper to bumber traffic on the roads; and when I really have to pee. I distract myself
  3. At home, I spend time talking to my siblings and cooking, enjoying monsoon delicacies.
  4. Whatever little time is left, I write – blog post or fiction.

The temperature is dropping as monsoon continues. Instead of finishing the cardigan, I have shelved it completely.

I tried two new things this week – outline the plot before hand and focus on one story at a time. Previous week, I outlined a new story and finished a 13019 words draft. That is kept aside for next month. I think it worked well. I will repeat the practice to see if it continues to work. This week I resumed working on the second draft for the August release story, still unnamed, I know 🙂

Office is back to being annoying. Do you have colleagues who order you to do things? I have. I have discussed my concerns with my manager, but nothing has come of it. Nothing ever does.

It is ‘sweety Friday’ and today’s treat is this.
