#ROW80 Sunday Check-in : Week 1

So my totals for the first week of ROW80 aren’t perfect, but not horrible.

I wanted to do 1000 words and half an hour of editing a day for 5 of 7 days. I am striving for daily consistency, but am summarizing a bit for the week. That would be 5K words and 2.5 hours of editing.

What I Actually did:

  • 3500 words on stories
  • 3.5 hours of editing

So not at all a horrible week, but slightly less than I aimed at. I hit a steep spot in the editing and a “doubt in myself” feeling that affected the writing.

Novella 2 is in a complete First Draft stage. I am poking at the other projects trying to make progress where ever I can.

Coming up this week:

  • I actually have client projects. After several months of being between contracts, I will start working again tomorrow. I am actually really hoping that the discipline of doing programming will help get me to do writing as well.
  • My inspiration post as a ROW sponsor is going up tomorrow and there is a post scheduled here as well.
  • I have a post due to go up on Thursday at Displaced Nation.

  1. I know it’s not quite what you aimed for but what you didn’t do in writing, you made up in edits. I’d say you did fairly well. Congrats on the new contract.

  2. Perfection is overrated. 😀 And besides, even not meeting your goals, you still made progress and isn’t that what’s important. (I think so, or maybe I’m just looking at the glass half full since I didn’t meet my weekly word count goals, lol) Good luck with work and with writing this week, and see you around the ROW!

      Oh totally, “perfect is the enemy of done.” I still strive to get things as close as possible. Thanks for the encouragement.
