#ROW80 Check-in #5

Here we are again with a ROW80 check-in.

~I’ve been drinking water pretty much every day, so that’s a win!
~I’ve finished the Changeling 4 revision
~I’ve read over Fireborn and am planning how to end it. That’s the first priority.
~I have a deadline for Ever Touched, so after Fireborn is done, I’ll be working on that.
~I haven’t started the 8-min writing thing yet. For the past few days, my attention hasn’t been there. I think I’m still a bit worn out after revising and submitting Pirouette/Death Dancer. Will try to start this week. I am thinking of working on Covenant, since it’s already in progress and I know the basic plot and I want to finish it ASAP to publish.
~Would like to re-institute Survivor Sundays
~Did my 15 minutes of physical activity twice this week
~No darkroom. I’ve had a serious lack of time. Maybe next weekend.

So things are happening. I just need to get back into the swing again. Things tend to derail or mess with my momentum, and I’d like to figure out a way to keep that from happening.

How have you done on your goals this week?

  1. YAY for more water!!! Glad to hear that is going well.

    I haven’t even been able to get properly on the rails this year. So, derailing would be a step up for me. However, you always seem to have everything under control. It may not be as perfect as you’d like, but you are doing great! Keep up all the good/hard work!

  2. Things tend to derail my momentum at time as well. Sometimes Life throws flaming barrels at us just to see if we can leap over them (Donkey Kong arcade-game reference). Life wants to see how dedicated we really are towards accomplishing our goals, so it throws up obstacles in our path just to test our resolve. We, as authors, do the same thing to our main characters, testing their perseverance through conflict. Maybe Life thinks we need adversity in our lives to improve our character-arc. So, it’s okay to stumble, even if we fall down, as long as we get back up and try again. We only fail when we stop trying.

  3. Hi Q! Thank you! The 8-min writing thing is where you grab 8 minute-segments throughout your day to write. I have always written every day, but I’d like to use those segments to work on a WIP that isn’t the main one. (Technically, the idea is to build up the daily writing habit by starting with 8 minutes, but I am modifying it just a bit for my needs).
