Midweek #ROW80 Check-In


Well, I have been kicking ass and taking names this week.  I sat down on Monday to make a big list of all my To Dos related to writing stuff.  I really want to knock out Riven by end of March, so I sorted how many scenes need to be finished per week to do that (4) and added those to the list.  I’ve already knocked out 2300 words on those the last two days AND filled in a plot hole that’s been hanging over my head.  Booyah!

I have a short story that I’d like to write between Riven and what’s next–something that I vaguely plotted out a while ago .  I took the opportunity to fill out a short story toolkit for that, getting all my old notes moved and adapted such that most of that is ready to go.

I knocked out one of the big worksheets in the novel toolkit I’m working through right now.

And it’s only Wednesday morning!

I’ve been super productive at the evil day job this week, moving right along on research for two grants we’re trying to get out the door by the end of March.  And the Project From Hell is going to be one great big step closer to finished by the end of next week.

And on an Operation G.I.T. front, I didn’t actually gain anything from my MASSIVE dietary indiscretions on my birthday.  WOO!

Off to staff meeting!

This Mississippi native has something for everyone, from short and sweet to Southern contemporary romance to action-packed paranormal—all featuring heroes you’d want to sweep you off your feet and rescue you from work-day drudgery. When not working or writing, Kait’s hanging out in her kitchen cooking and wishing life were a Broadway musical.

    Looks like you got your writing calendar organized to a T! I have made a to-do list, but it’s rather general. I need to work on that. I want to take the ROW80 challenge of upping my word count, but I’m finding that it takes me 2 hours to write a blog post. I want to blog 2-3 times per week. Where’s the WIP time? sigh.

      That’s one of those points where you have to decide if the audience you are fostering with your blogging is actually the same intended audience for your fiction. Often it isn’t, meaning your time would be better spent on writing the WIP and being more focused on fun than informing with the blog.

    Kicking ass and taking names sounds like an understatement. Go you!
