Peace and Progress–ROW 80 Check-in
It has been pretty peaceful over the last few days. My best friend is feeling a lot better. My nephew is back home. I’m still wrapping up things with a former roommate situation that went bad, but that hasn’t even been able to get me down. Yes, I’m not happy that things didn’t work out. His behavior has been less than gracious, but it forces me to set boundaries and stand my ground. And that is a good thing.
My writing has been going well. The streak continues. I find myself working on one project more than the other of late. I can’t even remember the last time I worked on the first story I started. The protagonist in the second story has been holding all my interest. I am pantsing it, and I’m enjoying figuring out who he is and what he’s doing. I think writing in smaller blocks helps to ease any anxiety that comes from not knowing where the story is going. I am not a natural pantser, but experimenting is fun.
Ta-da! Big strides in novel analyzing. I’ve gotten several hours of work done over the last few days. The end is so near. I’m incredibly excited. So much so that I’ve already put in the hold at the library for the next book to analyze. From here on out, I’m not doing anymore books that I am luke warm about. It has been the great learning experience that I thought it would be, but a torturous one. Only books that I LOVE in my analyzing future. Gotta allow the learning to be more fun!
I’ve been getting my reading done as well. I picked up a book of short stories. Still working on the same humungous fantasy book and the craft book as well.
All in all, I’m very happy with my progress. The plan is to keep it going. Happy ROWing guys. Catch ya Wednesday!
