Ahhh. It’s Sunday morning, and I’m finally doing my Sunday ROW80 update post, for the first time in two weeks! Life got in the way, but that’s the game of it I think. I’m getting back on track slowly, but it’s still all a work in progress. Which, I do believe, is yet another point of life.
I announced on Wednesday that I have a story releasing on 12/15, and I’m gearing up for that. It’s a co-written short story, which makes it very interesting to say the least. We’re both working to promote it, but at the same time, it’s a short story, so not as much as if it were a novel. We are also co-writing a novel, and that seems to be going very well.
We have a release blitz for Loneliness Ebbs Deep, the short story, if anyone wants to join in!
As for the rest of life, things are going. After much thought, I’ve decided I need to focus on editing right now instead of writing. I’m still writing, but not on my own work. My original plan was to finish Grace through Redemption before the new year, but I got a bit behind in editing. I don’t want to end up even more behind than I already am, so that’s my focus. I think it’s reasonable.
As for the novel I’m co-writing…we have added words this week. Not much as my partner was in the midst of final edits and I’m in the midst of many editing projects. But words were written! Here we go for the rest of the check in.
1. Write 1667 words a day.
We’re at 27382 in word count and going. My guess is we’ll get back on track and do a lot of writing this coming week.
2. keep up with all blog posts ROW80, WIPpet, Open When and add in 1 extra post a week
I’m doing much better at this. I did ROW80 twice this week, WIPpet, and I had 2 extra posts. I did not, however, doing Open When. I’ll need to write a months worth of them to make up for being behind.
3. Edit at least one chapter a week on something.
I’m going to list these out to make it easier.
Ella’s Love: 0 chapters edited and 23 chapters to go
Spellbound: 0 chapters edited and 11 chapters to go
Round 1: 12 chapters done 13 chapters to go
Round 2: 5 chapters done 22 chapters to go
PTB: 1 chapter done
4. crochet one round of border a week
I have not done this, but it still does need to get done.
