Time Flies–ROW 80 Check-in

ROW week one has come and gone quickly. I’m sitting here on this rainy Sunday afternoon looking back over the last week. I can honestly say that I am pleased with my results. I guess time flies when you’re actually getting things done.

Writing-I’ve hit and surpassed my writing mark every day. I have two short pieces that I’m working on. It has been cool having them to alternate between. It keeps me from getting stuck. If I’m not feeling one on a particular day, I work on the other one. I’m confident that I’ll have a finished story by the end of the round.

Novel Analyzing- Progress here has been slow and steady. The further I get into the novel, the fewer the scenes. I like that aspect. Planning to pick up the pace a little bit.

Reading Story Engineering- I started rereading from the beginning and found myself bored (simply because I’ve read that part twice already). So, I decided to skip ahead to new territory. Smart move. The section on story structure is proving very helpful. I’m glad I invested in my own copy of the book.

Blog post- Didn’t get that in this past week. I had to make some decisions about what I’d blog about and when. I could have just made a random post to hit the goal, but the purpose of the goal is to add a regular day of posting about a specific topic. So, I decided to wait until I had it figured out. I should get that started this week most likely, next week at the latest.

What’s happening with you guys? Hope you’re hitting your marks. Until Wednesday my friends!

  1. Love it – love it – love it! Way to go, Yolanda. 🙂 I find that alternating writing projects is very helpful.

    Awesome progress. 😀

  2. Great job, Yolanda! Surpassing your writing goals every day is impressive. Keep up the good work!

  3. I really enjoyed Story Engineering. Once I get through my stack of TBR I might re-read it again too. Sounds like you’re making great progress!

  4. Great progress Yolanda! Well done!

  5. might as well get the blog right – from beg.Its not a race after all – well done on doing two at once – all the best for coming week

  6. I could not agree more — alternating between writing projects keeps me writing! I didn’t get my blog post (non-ROW) done either…hmmm. Are you copying me?

    Just kidding.

  7. What would Amy do? I have to ask myself that question often. 😛

  8. Sometimes the things we aren’t achieving teach us more than the stuff we succeed at… like not being able to concentrate on a semi-familiar section of a book or readying a blog when you still feel like you need more time…

    You’ve got enough going on, you’re doing great. =)

  9. Oooh Eden, such wisdom gives me chills. Thanks!

  10. Awesome progress! And you reminded me that I haven’t finished reading Story Engineering. I should do that! 😀

    Sounds like a great first week. Congratulations! See you Wednesday.
