#ROW80 Check-in 3/22/15 – Almost to the end

I haven’t been feeling so hot this past week. I had some really bad eye pain that kept me from doing anything useful. I did finish the teaser of Grave Touched I’ll be posting to the Turtleduck Press website on April 1st and the cover for the digital edition and a banner I will use for my Author FB and on the TDP website as well. Very happy with all.

Tomorrow the first half of my final edits are hitting my inbox, so that will take priority over everything else.

April will be CRAZY.

Today I went over the first few scenes of Survivor (again!) and realized that I don’t like the way things played out. I was hoping to just tweak it, but I have a sneaking feeling that this will end up being a full-blown rewrite. So that’s my next step. Rewrite the first few scenes.

On the Ever Touched front, still noodling. I want to start writing it sometime after I release Grave Touched.

And on Fireborn, I wrote 370 words today! So that leaves less than 300 to make my goal. Yay! (Still a bit unsure how I want it to go, but I’m being careful not to scare my muse away. This is more than enough to start, and I’m happy with it).

So, yesterday was my family birthday party. (My actual birthday is March 27th, but due to my sister’s work, we decided to have it a week before my actual birthday). And naturally, I got a triple chocolate cake. Lemme tell you, it was sinful how good it was. It was divine. So that was my chocolate fix for yesterday. Today I’ve been snacking on Chex Mix Muddy Buddies which are basically chocolate-flavored Chex Mix. Will probably have some leftover cake later.

I’ve also started on my housewalking (basically, walking inside your house instead of outside) using the new activity tracker I got for my birthday. So…I hope do more walking and maybe burn some more calories of all this chocolate I’m consuming!

We’re almost to the end of the Round, and I’m pretty happy with my progress.

  1. First, I LOVE your site tag. That is the most brilliant quote!

    Your progress is great, (obviously chocolate powered, which is the best energy source,) despite your eye giving you trouble. That sounds nasty. I hope it heals soon.

    Best of luck with the rest of your goals. Keep turning those walls to sand. 🙂

    1. Thanks Cate! I can’t take credit for that quote. It is from the song Anybody Listening? by Queensryche, my favorite band. It is brilliant indeed. I shall endeavor to keep turning walls to sand, absolutely!

  2. Happy birthday! Triple chocolate cake! Yum!! Congrats for moving forward with your goals even with a sore eye . All the best as you move forwward with your novels.

  3. Silly eye! Let Erin write!

    I do a version of housewalking – I do many hometending bursts throughout the day. I’ve had a sore foot for the last few days, though, so I’ve tapered down a little. I try to go with my energy level…

    The cake and Chex Mix and progress all seem amazing!
