During the week I did well, though! Let's see how it went:
Goal 1. To write at least 500 words in a new story or 1000 words in an existing WIP, 5 days a week
COMPLETED!I completely focused on Arieties and got 6000 words written this week, yay me! I am completely rewriting the ending, so almost all of it is brand new scenes that I love 43280948230x better than what I previously had in my SFD.
Goal 2. To complete (or edit) at least two full scenes a day, 5 days a week
Again focusing on Arieties, in addition to my 6000 new words I also edited 5 existing scenes. I know that's not 2 full scenes a day, but I completed about 7 new scenes so that counts toward it.
Goal 3. To have the draft of my WIP Arieties ready for beta reading by the end of ROW80
DEFINITELY ON TARGET FOR COMPLETION!I am so happy with myself this week as far as this goal. I have another round of edits before it's even close to ready, but I am way ahead of myself. I'm a little under 20,000 words away from being finished with editing this round. Yay!
Goal 4. To visit at least 2 blogs of my fellow ROW80 participants per day (on days that I have access to internet)
SORT OF COMPLETED.My b. I skipped last Thursday because I just didn't have a chance at work and I did not have a chance to get on my internet connection at home. But, I went way over 2 per day on the other weekdays, so it sort of makes up for it. Maybe? Please forgive me?
For next week I'm going to amend Goal 2 to just focus on editing 2 scenes, since writing 500/1000 words and two scenes seems a little redundant. Other than that I think I'm going to keep my goals this time. Shocking, I know. After this round of edits on Arieties I'm going to demand that I work on other works, specifically some short stories that are half completed/stewing in my mind.
Since the treats went over so well last week, and we're in the middle of a heat wave in NYC, here's some ice cream to cool you off. Enjoy!
