Plus One More–ROW 80 Check-in
Ahhhh…check-in. Yay! I have totally missed the accountability that comes with this challenge. Okay, now that that is out of the way, let’s get to it.
Things are starting to pick back up from the holiday slow down. My move has been pushed back until this summer. So, that is one less thing to distract me right now. I’m still job hunting, but there is considerably less stress to speak of. I’ve been putting the extra time and mind space to good use.
Writing- I’ve been hitting the 250 a day word goal pretty easily so far. I’m not shocked, that number isn’t much of a challenge for me in terms of output. The challenge is the every day part. I went to the doctor’s office with my roomie yesterday, but that wasn’t enough to make me miss my session. Hopefully, that will continue.
Novel analyzing- I’ve been getting that done as well. I am still working on the novel that shall not be named (again). I’m sucking it up. I know once I’m done with this one, I’ll be happier about the work. Until then, I’ve vowed not to whine about it anymore. On the bright side, I’ll probably be done with it by Wednesday check-in next week.
Short story-I am working with something. I don’t know what it will turn into yet, but I’ve got a character that has been sticking with me for the last few days. We’ll see.
Reading- I am a few chapters into Story Engineering. They are chapters that I’ve already read a few times before. I’ve attempted reading this book at least twice. My inability to get through it has nothing to do with the book and everything to do with how hectic life has been lately. I’m excited to actually get to the meat of the book. That’s why I made reading it a goal in itself.
While I am happy with the progress made over the last few days, I’m adding another goal to the list. That goal is not to skip any check-ins this round. I think I only missed two last round, but I don’t want a repeat. Reporting in twice a week keeps me on my toes. It encourages me to get myself together quickly when I fall of track.
That’s it for now. Hope you guys are doing well. Catch ya Sunday!
