Hello, everyone! I just went to check in and there was nowhere to check in, so I'm thinking JaneB must be even more sick than I am. If you follow her blog, you'll know she's been struggling. I'll post the writing group here this week. Apologies for the delay!
I'm borrowing this week's theme from Dame Eleanor Hull, who graciously stepped in to give everyone a place to check in. It's a continuation of last week's theme of happiness in writing. As DEH said, for those of you think happiness is too much to ask, "then think about comfort or contentment. Maybe you could make your desk more inviting, or associate writing with something more pleasurable, even something as simple as a good cup of coffee or tea in a mug of your favorite color. Try one small change in the direction of pleasure, and see what happens."
Amanda@ladyscientist: no check-in

Contigent Cassandra: continue making at least incremental progress, writing M, W, and perhaps Sa; do whatever research/retrieval is necessary to have the materials I need at home over Spring Break; keep up with the grading so as to be able to devote Spring Break to writing (and a bit of rest).
Dame Eleanor Hull: At least 1 hour a day; 10 lines of the IPM; start checking Chunk 2 of the translation (at least 1/2 hour, 3 times); check in at least once with MMP-1, MMP-2, and MMP-3, and try to do one concrete thing for each of them (this can be something as small as "write one sentence").
Danne: 1) write at least a page of notes a day. 2) Go on spending 3 hours a day on research 3) Read current book on space 4) If a positive answer is received from the new uni, schedule a day off for reading, and celebrate.

Good Enough Woman: The usual. Get up at 6:00am M and W so I can read/write for an hour (and run for 20 minutes) before the day gets rolling. Then work two hours on Friday. It's *possible* I'll have a hotel night on Thursday, but I'll have to see how the week rolls out.
