So yeah, I missed the Sunday check-in. That should give you a sense of how the weekend went. I got no writing of any kind done between last Wednesday and Easter Sunday, so I just decided the check-in would not be motivating. I did however peruse the other ROW80ers in my role as a sponsor and was happy to see that others were not as non-productive as I was.
It was still a great weekend with some visiting friends. We got to go to France for lunch (it is awesome to be able to do that) and went up a local hill on a cable car that was fun (and inspiring for my Steampunk writing, gotta have cable cars somewhere.)
In other news from last week, the first post of a new column at Displaced Nation went up. I am exploring the connections and relationships between travel and fantasy writing. The column is called Here There Be Dragons.
As for Goals:
I wrote 800words yesterday, which is about what I have done since last Wednesday. I have managed an hour of editing. However I did do a plot outline for Novella 3.
So all in all, not so good on my goals this week. It is a good reminder that if I can get myself to just open up the Scrivener and stare at it that I can produce words.
Lessons and Outlook:
I really need to track what I write. I mean I am pretty sure I got no more than 800 this week done, but between the guests and activities I don’t have a lot of space in my brain for that kind of stuff. I need to write it down.
I have a business trip up for this weekend. Which means 6 hours on the train in both directions. So I will get as much writing time as my laptop battery survives. So I am really hoping to get more done.
