#ROW80 ~ August 30th Update

Update & Goals

Writing: I have, more or less, one scene left to write for the first draft of One Ahead, episode 1 (or whatever I’m going to call it*). I should have the first draft done by Monday night as planned. Then, Eric will read it and we’ll decide what needs to be improved. I already suspect that one part doesn’t work as well as it should.

Writing on the stripped down laptop still seems to be working best, even if it means missing emails occasionally. Free writing is still getting done on a nearly daily-ish basis.

*I actually haven’t nailed down the naming convention I want to use and Eric doesn’t yet have a cover concept. This whole Abbott project might actually be happening to the surprise of everyone.

Blogging: Still in a bit of a blogging slump.  I apologize to my fellow ROWers for the “Likes” rather than the comments. I don’t feel like I’ve been able to get my feet back under me since vacation. This is the struggle of the introvert: most “relaxing” activities really aren’t. It’s not that I don’t enjoy seeing people, visiting with people, partying with people, in person or on the internet, but it isn’t refreshing or rejuvenating. I’d like it to be, but it isn’t.

Other: Still have quite a few VOTS pages to convert, but it’s mostly under control. League starts this week and I still have the schedule to post when I get the information for that. The second part of the Python programming class started yesterday. I have four weeks of fun scheduled there.

  1. That comment re introverts needing time to recover from vacation really resonated with me. We’re just back from 3 weeks away and I’m still getting settled back to a reasonable routine. Celebrate the writing! That laptop sounds like it’s working for you. Have a good week ahead.

  2. I am what I call (it’s wrong, I know) an ‘extroverted introvert’. I think they call us ‘ambiverts’ now? I dunno. I recharge and destress most and best with MEEE time, doing quiet alone stuff with just ME. However, sometimes, that isn’t enough, and I need to power up with other people, feeding off of their excitement and energies like a vampire. Then I come home on an emotional high, but physically exhausted, and I need alone time to recover from recharging with people. But it’s a real recharge! Anyway, I digress.

    I’m so glad you have a working laptop to write on! Isn’t it great to be able to move your WIPs to a more conducive atmosphere? I love my laptop! Except that I really dislike Windows 10, though I hate it much less than I hate Windows 8! ;-D And I’m digressing again. Sorry!

    You’ve got some really good goals there, though! Best of luck to you on reaching them!

    1. Thanks, Tammy!

      Heh, my laptop is so old it’s still running XP. ‘Course, I’m still using Word ’97 so it all works out. 😉

      I do like going to conferences because of all the ideas that get batted around, but it still leaves me totally exhausted all over. Alas, I think I’m getting worse as the years go by which probably means I need to get out more.
