ROW 80 ~ Sunday Update, June 7th


Kind of been in a brain fog since Wednesday. I blame hormones or maybe the weather which has been cool and rainy, odd for early June in Phoenix. Whatever the case, I hope I haven’t made any serious mistakes over the last few days…

I’ve been spinning my wheels on In Need of Luck. Eric suggested a change of plan last night, and I had been considering broaching the subject myself. I’m putting Luck on the back burner and switching to the Abbott Project for the next 3-4 weeks.


  • Abbott Project
    • Added 6/7 – 1000 words daily.
    • Added 6/7 – Figure out what images I have that are free, clear, unattached public domain.
    • Research – The goal here should be not spending ALL my time on the research.
  • Daily free write. – Wrote Weds, Thurs, Sat.
  • Finish In Need of LuckI’m not going to say never, but probably won’t happen in June.
  • Scene rewrites for PHYSICa. – Same as above.

Reading, related to writing

  • The Victorian Internet by Tom Standage (Abbott Project related)
  • Or, Linking Rings: William W. Durbin and the Magic and Mystery of America by James David Robenalt (Abbott Project related) – Both are on my summer reading list and Abbott related. I’m leaning toward Linking Rings, atm. Haven’t started either.


  • Look for new promo options. – Finish the BIG List and evaluate new venues by the 20th when I run my next promo.
