Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!
It’s ROW80 time! How have I been doing so far?
Seeing as this post was written last week and I am now getting to post it…yeah. I’ve been really busy with work and physical therapy. I’ve also been really tired, so my energy levels haven’t been the best. But still, I’ve been trying to get stuff done.
~Participate in Camp Nano with a modest goal of 10,000 words. ~I amended my goal to 5,000 and did not make it. I got halfway: 2,505 words. However, in the bigger picture, I was able to start The Vanishing, so I am happy about that. Overall progress on The Vanishing: 5,178 words.
Continue placing ads for 3 of my books each month. Also, do a free run with Reaper Girl. ~May 1st was my last paid ad. I have since made the decision to back off ads for a few months and just do newsletter swaps. I also have not decided on a date for the Reaper Girl free run. I am considering doing it in July, like I did with Fey Touched. It would give me enough time to stack ads.
~Progress on more sane work hours. Includes taking Sundays off. ~I’ve taken a few days off this week since things are a bit slow. I have also decided on a quitting time. Seems to be working so far.
~Start Survivor Rewrite ~Nope, but I am still still thinking about it.
~Accountability partner check-in ~I keep forgetting to mention this. I’ve been checking in with my accountability partner every week. It’s been fun and helpful. 🙂
~Chocolate consumption report: Chocolate mug cakes, hot chocolate, Hersey’s kisses.

I’ve said it before, and I shall say it again: Incorporating chocolate consumption as a goal is just brilliant.
I’m sorry things have been icky busy. How much longer will you need to be in PT?
And congrats on 2500 words! That’s way better than zippo, and impressive given the busyness.
Thank you so much!
Thanks, Regi. 🙂 It’s fun. As for PT, I’m not exactly sure. I had some insurance issues that has put me behind by a week and a half. My re-evaluation is the 24th, and I believe we’ll be deciding then if I’ll continue or stop there. So, maybe another month? Maybe not.
I didn’t meet my Camp NaNo goal, either, even though I kept dropping it. I needed to take some time off at the end of the month to regroup and find some focus.
I hear you, Fallon. I’ve been doing some regrouping myself.
This just wasn’t the year for “Camping” goals, for a lot of us, it seems. Still, you started, you wrote, and you were already busy… success enough, imho. Congrats, Erin. Slow and steady will still get you to your goals (and it may help you stay sane once you get there)
Thank you so much, Eden. 😀
