#ROW80 Check-in Twelve and a Half

….because I hate the number thirteen.

I’m doing okay. Feeling better every day, but day job + getting over illness = extreme fatigue. It’s frustrating because I want to do All The Things but can’t. Hopefully, I’ll get some of that energy back (I actually am tired 24/7 from the fibro, but I usually try to work through it).

I’ve made some progress on Grave Touched, a new scene. I also had an idea for how to format my novel-in-12-pieces, Survivor. I love this novel SO much, but haven’t been ready to tackle it and untangle the mess (long story short: I went linear, which is my usual method, for 9 chapters. I got stuck and started several new plot threads, all in separate documents, without any regard to how they fit together. I finally finished the rough draft in 2009 — I’d started it in 2004 — but it’s been languishing. Le sigh). So I think there’s a glimmer of hope here, so I will see what I can do. Not adding it to my ROW80 goal though — too much pressure.

On to the stats!

Running total: 22,522 words
Words remaining: 12,478 words (getting closer!)
Body count: Everyone’s good. For now.
Feeling: Okay. Not 100% but not a big ball of fail which is how I’ve been feeling for the past few days (it’s day job related). Currently getting over it.
Eye report: Pretty good. Twinge-y but tolerable.

  1. You could have done what they used to do in hotels: skip 13 and go to 14….

    I’ve been using Scrivener for all of my writing lately. It does a lot of the formatting for you. Just a thought. Still, the writing’s going well for you.

  2. I’ve tried Scrivener and it didn’t really work for me. But thanks for the thought.

    Yeah, I could have used 14. But for some reason, 12 1/2 was what I wanted. 😀

  3. scrivener needs a lot of getting used to – needs time- good tho’ – I had to wait until I had time between books to get to grips with it.
    The energy will come back – I feel for you as i have been struggling to do the same, slowly it happens – with setbacks of course they are a given in life:)

    Look after yourself
