#ROW80 Check-in 10/15/17

I’m been soooooooooo busy, you don’t even know! Been mostly copy editing a TDP novel (which is awesome and releasing next month), revising Fireborn, and playing Guild Wars.

Here’s the rundown:

~Finish rewrite of Fireborn, revise it, edit it, and submit it for Dec. 1st deadline (the rewrite is almost done now). ~Revision up to page 72 of 98 pages. I will need to do some substantial rewrites, however. 
~Transfer Survivor outline to notecards, for reals this time ~Nope.
~Participate in NanoWriMo with an amended goal of 30k (Survivor) ~Still planning for this.
~Begin edit of Secret Project ~Have not started.
~Decide on next project and start working on that (Covenant and When She Sleeps are the top contenders) ~Currently, it’s When She Sleeps, and I recently wrote 300 words of a new scene.
~Finish In Flames cover or hire someone to do it  ~A writer friend generously offered to make me a cover. Cover reveal soon!

Non-writing stuffs:

~Water 5x a week 
~Read 1 book a week ~Finished Letters to an English Professor by Joely Sue Burkhart. Currently reading Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories, a horror anthology. About 60% in.  
~Chocolate consumption reports, of course! ~Dark chocolate covered caramels, milk chocolate covered caramels..and I think that’s it! I am falling down on the job! Must remedy this.

#ROW80 Round 4 Goals

Omg, how did we make it to Round 4 already??! I don’t even know where the year went!

I’m going to continue with fewer goals as not to overwhelm myself. Usually the last quarter of the year is tremendously and stressful, so I need room to breathe.

That said, here are my goals:

~Finish rewrite of Fireborn, revise it, edit it, and submit it for Dec. 1st deadline (the rewrite is almost done now).
~Transfer Survivor outline to notecards, for reals this time
~Participate in NanoWriMo with an amended goal of 30k (Survivor)
~Begin edit of Secret Project
~Decide on next project and start working on that (Covenant and When She Sleeps are the top contenders)
~Finish In Flames cover or hire someone to do it

Non-writing stuffs:

~Water 5x a week
~Read 1 book a week
~Chocolate consumption reports, of course!

In between all of this, I may have freelance jobs that pop up and change my schedule, so that’s a thing. Also, my mom is having surgery later this month and I will be helping her so that may change things a bit, too, until she’s doing better. I may adjust these goals to compensate.

And that’s it for me.
