#ROW80 ~ October 21st Update

Round 4, Week 2.5 Update

Just a quick update post, mostly to help me keep my head in the game.


Goals for Week 3+:

My goal is to have a first draft by the end of the month. This is what I have left:

  • Seven scenes. Three of them are already over halfway done. – Finished an “in-progress” and wrote a second scene. I also planned a change that eliminated one scene, but will lead to some rewriting. 4/7 left.
  • Add new element, especially to the first few scenes.
  • Timeline clean-up. I probably need to rearrange a few scenes and I need to make sure things are happening on the right day. Mostly done. Everything is in the right order.
  • Note clean-up. Done. Until I leave myself more notes.

My two measurable goals:

  • Write First. Five days out of seven, 1 hour of work/500 words before noon. – Monday & Tuesday – Not a lot of writing before noon, but  editing/organizing. Today, I’ve gotten 25 mins in so far.
  • Make a better list of further story ideas. – Started this.

The Publishing End

Goals for Week 3:

  • Do the usual check-ins. Done on Monday & Tuesday.
  • Attend to Lucinda at the Window promo on Saturday.
  • Work on spiritualism fiction shelf on Riffle. – Done! Here’s a link to it.


Goal for Week 3:

  • Get some sort of cardio (30+ mins) three times a week. – Monday, 3mi. run with a 1.25 walk. Today, play ultimate at noon, and tomorrow I have league.

    I totally need to work exercise into my daily goals. :/ Looking at your spiritualism shelf now. No less than THREE books with the same exact title (The Séance)? I’m going to keep that in mind when titling my works and try to come up with something more original. 🙂 Lucinda at the Window is a wonderful title, and (without knowing what it’s about) for me evokes maybe a ghost looking out of the second or third floor of an old house. You know there won’t be another book out there with the same title, so everyone will remember it.
