Day 108 Reporting – 2,024 Words/Day Process Log – Building

I’m building a “Stories I Like” post. Each time I read a short story or a novel I read, I open up the draft post and write my thoughts on it. Because this is something new I’m doing, I can’t tell you when I’ll post it. Right now, I’m thinking that it might be every month. It could be more recent than that, though. As I’m looking to April – June, I want to increase the number of books I read.

Now, anyone who knows anything about goal setting will tell you that, that’s a horrible goal. I should have a number so that it can be tracked. And to be honest, knowing where I am in reaching a goal would make me feel better. I have been in a reading slump for so long, I don’t even know how much I can read.

I can tell you, however, that I like to read short stories during lunch since I can finish them. Getting really into a novel, just to have to set it down is aggravating.

I use this same method for building out places I’d like to visit. If I see recommendations either in a Facebook group or on another piece of social media about a place I’d like to visit, I open up a section in my OneNote projects notebook, start a section on the place and add a page. Typical pages are things like – museums, restaurants, and hotels.

If I find a good airfare, I already have a basic itinerary.

Keep moving forward. Keep getting better.
