#ROW80 Round 2 Final Check-in

Well, here we are at the end of the round, and I have to say, I think I did pretty well. I was fighting some things, exhaustion and other commitments, and at times it was tough. But I am happy with what I accomplished.

Here were my goals:

~Finish rough draft of Ever Touched. <–NOT DONE. Close, but I got sidetracked by an editing job, a query letter, and a longish short story with a tight deadline. My #1 plan is to finish this next round. I’m at 88k (of 120k) so far!

~If there’s time, start planning Fireborn revision.<–NOT DONE, because Ever Touched isn’t done, but I am planning on doing a read through of the completed draft ASAP.

~Continue logging outline for Survivor into Scrivener.<–NOT DONE. Just not enough time. This will be carried over to next round, b/c my next primary project will be Survivor.

~Reinstate 8 minutes a day of a first draft again/make progress on Covenant <–DONE once. I was fighting exhaustion mostly, and wrist tendonitis, so this was just not working for me. 😦

~Make prints of the film I developed yesterday (my test roll). <–NOT DONE. Same song, second verse. I had to order in chemicals and a new safelight. Not enough energy. It’s happening SOON though!

~Experiment with digital infrared <–DONE! Check it out here!

~Plot Elysium <–DONE!

~Clean office <–Started, but not completed

~Continue #AprilLove2016 when possible <–DONE! 14 out of 30 days. Did not complete due to wrist tendonitis.  Dear CourageDear Inspiration, Dear Younger Me, Dear Future Me (the rest were written in a journal offline).

~Exercise 2x a week <–MOSTLY DONE, 2x and sometimes more!

~Drink 1 glass of water every day.<–MOSTLY DONE, every day except 2 every week. 

Looking forward to next round! Who’s participating?

  1. You’re doing well with your goals. I don’t document all mine, such as exercise, though I do try to fit that in, as I’ve been erratic lately with the check-in posts. The drinking water is a good reminder to me as I usually end up with tea etc.

    1. Thank you! I’ve had problems with severe dehydration, so I added water to my daily routine (I’m embarrassed to admit that I did not drink it regularly prior to this). It seems to be helping, and I know it’s good for you health-wise.

  2. Excellent progress. 88K of 120K is pretty darn good, so congrats.

    I’ll be participating next round, and I’ll be a sponsor. It’s been a while since I’ve sponsored a round of ROW80, so I’m looking forward to it.

  3. Erin, you would make an AWESOME sponsor! *jooooooiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnuuuuuuusssssssss*

    Looks like you laid some serious groundwork for next round. I’ll be by to check up on your infrareds next – I loved the first batch you posted!
