ROW 80 Check In

I probably should have skipped this check-in, because I like to skip things when I don't do them very well. But, in the spirit of my new conquer-your-fears attitude, I'm going to stick it out.

I didn't hit all of my goals this week. I did edit Arieties for an hour, but let's face it, that was probably my least ambitious goal. I'm kind of stagnant with Arieties because I'm having mixed feelings about the story as a whole right now. I'll push through, giving it another hour a week, but I think we need to stay on a break for now.

As for writing, I wrote about 2000 words this week, most of it revision. I'm going in a different direction a bit with Skye's story so we'll see how this works out. I'm still going to set my goal at 3500 for a week (with a week beginning on Sunday) so I'm going to do my best to actually hit it.

Even though I didn't hit my goals, I'm going to add another one: Spend at least 20 minutes a day developing the plot for a new story. I have 3 bouncing around my head in various stages of development so I think I need to get some sort of plot down before they start killing each other. 

In all fairness I was somewhere between freaking out about moving out and celebrating moving out all week so I didn't have the best focus.

Hope everyone else killed it in their goals this week!


  1. Good for you for checking in. Good luck with moving out :)

  2. It's okay to have mixed feelings about moving. It's a great step though. And keep trying with the writing. Hang in there.
