#ROW80 Check-in 6/1/14

Here we are again!  I missed Wednesday’s Check-in (the first time so far!) because hubby and I were out that evening and by the time I got back, I was so tired.  So I skipped.  *shifty look*   But I’m back now!

Writing’s been going very, very slowly.  I can’t really figure it out — between Soulfire and Awaken Me, I’ve got a ton of inspiration, but no motivation to write.  Part of it might be my back — I’ve been having some pretty severe pain.

This month is revision month for both Reaper Girl and Grave Touched.  Revisions for Reaper Girl are due back on the 22nd, and I’d like to make some good progress on Grave Touched before the end of the month.  We shall see.


Words written: 927 words/7,351 total
Words remaining: 27,649 words
What’s happening: The words were on both WIPs.
What’s next: Both of these will be on hold for awhile, unfortunately.
Feeling: Extremely unmotivated
Eye report: Okay.
Back report: So far, so good. *knocks on cyber-wood*
Chocolate consumption: Too much!  We had a birthday party yesterday, and there was Sander’s Chocolate Bumpy cake, Chocolate Brownie ice cream.  Today I’ve already devoured a box of Junior Mints….
Mood music: Device and Halestorm

  1. Offers a hug for pointy stick ouchies….

    Maybe those ideas just need a little simmering and seasoning before they burst to life…

    I’m engaged in attempting to tempt a Huntress to share her reality – preferably without losing my throat in the process…

    May we both find the words we seek! =D

  2. Hi Erin, and sorry to hear about your back. And thank you for your comment on my blog. 🙂
    Don’t beat yourself up about the writing. You’re still a writer, but right now the well is empty because of the back pain, most likely. I think Shanjeniah’s words are good, let the ideas percolate. THINKING about your writing still counts as work.
    I hope you feel better soon, and here’s to a fountain of percolated words and ideas.
    All the best.

  3. As people have told me, any progress is still progress. As long as you don’t let it defeat you and you still put energy toward it that is good. Hope you get beyond your pain and let yourself relax. The ideas are there and will return.
