#ROW80 Check-in 7/23/17

It’s that time again!

Well, I’ve been doing a lot of writing and a lot of thinking about what comes next after Camp Nano. I’d like to finish my secret project and release it and also get back to Covenant because it’s a third done and I think I can get the rest done if I really push it. When She Sleeps was also supposed to be written quickly, so I will probably continue with that. And then there’s Fireborn. So lots of options, and truthfully, I’m not really sure what to focus on. We have another week in this month so I don’t have to decide right now, thankfully!

fey touched
Fey Touched, book #1. A Queen fleeing from her people. A Hunter searching the stream of time. Forbidden love.

Just a reminder that my debut novel, Fey Touched, is on sale for FREE on Amazon today. Today is the last day, so get it before the price goes up tomorrow!

This promotion by the way has gone very, very well. I got a ton of downloads and even some sales of the other two books which is excellent. My royalties this month, while not huge, will cover the cost of advertising so that’s a win!

Here’s the rundown on the rest:

Secret project – Nada, but hope to get some words in this coming week.

Fireborn Rewrite – On hold till after Camp Nano ends.

Camp Nano – Up to 8k! My goal is 10k, so I should make it. (1,733 words written since last check-in).

Water – Mostly every day.

FYFB class – On hold till after Camp Nano as well.

Survivor outline transfer – That’s a no. Hopefully I can start soon!

Chocolate consumption – Gluten-free Chocolate Animal crackers (I’ve eaten almost the entire box in 2 days! They are soooo good!), hot chocolate, chocolate birthday cake (mother-in-law), Mackinac Island fudge ice cream, fudge stripes cookies, Twix bars, and Gluten-free breakfast bars at like midnight last night because I was hungry. Think that’s enough? Maybe.

#ROW80 Check-in 7/19/17

It’s been awhile. I’ve been camping, and writing, and dealing with eye pain, still.

Yep, new dose is not working. I am taking 600mg of Motrin every morning which does help take the edge off. But once it wears off, I’m hurting again. And I am not willing to take so much Motrin every day, so I usually end up dealing with it or taking a painkiller. Le sigh. My next appointment is August 25th. I will discussing this situation with my neurologist.

Let’s see, what have I done?

Secret project – 1,812 words written since the last check-in. Been focused on Camp Nano. Once that’s over, I’ll get more done. I do have a cover and a title! Will be revealing it soon.

Camp Nano – 3,711 words written since last post. (When She Sleeps = 2,110 words, Oubliette – 1,601 words.) Total for Camp as of today is about 6k. 4k to go!

Fireborn Rewrite – This is on hold until after Camp, but I have been thinking about it and trying to figure out ways to expand it.

FYFB class – Nada

Water – Yes, have been consistently drinking water almost every day each week.

Survivor outline transfer – Have not started yet.

Chocolate consumption: Oh man. While camping, I had a truly decadent chocolate ice cream thing called “Chocolate Devotion” at Cold Stone Creamery. I about died! Let’s see…Sugar free Oreos, Twix ice cream bars, hot chocolate, chocolate cupcake (1), s’smores.

#ROW80 Round 3 Goals

Round 3 already! But the year just started! Time is FLYING.

I’m going to stick with my less goals, less stress idea for this round. I have a lot coming up — Fey Touched’s free promo the 21st through the 23rd, increased TN pain despite an increased dosage of my medication, and job stress. So, without further adieu, here are my goals:

~Continue with Fireborn rewrite.
~Finish secret project. It is currently almost half done.
~Continue participating in Camp Nano. I have two projects I am flip-flopping between, Oubliette and When She Sleeps. Should keep me busy!
~Start plotting Survivor into Scrivener (Survivor is my Nano project).
~One glass of water 5x a week.
~Continue with FYFB class
~Continue with chocolate consumption reports

And that’s it for me. I may add an exercise goal to this at some point.
