ROW80 – Round 4 – Check-in #6

It’s Sunday and it’s time to update you on my ROW80 progress. If interested, you can find a list of my goals here.

Work In Progress Goals:

  • 1 hour since Wednesday for a total of 3 hours on my WIP this week (goal is 5 hours each week):
    • Did some brainstorming around Idea 1 and came up with a few good plot points.
  • My ROW80 Sista, Nancy J. Nicholson, and I had a great check-in earlier this week and she her and crew are now out at sea until tomorrow.
  • I reported on my ROW80 goals on schedule.

I didn’t get as much done this week as I had hoped to. But I am super pumped about the ideas I did come up with. This story idea is really starting to grab hold of me and I have inklings of it taking shape. It’s thrilling to be quite honest! Shaping the idea still needs a ton of work but for me, seeing it take even a hint of structure is the momentum and confidence building I need to move forward so big win for me!

I suspect my 5-hour goal for this week and next won’t be met due in large part to a major event coming up at work. It will mean insane work days, working evenings and likely some weekend hours. Add to that, I also have a bachelorette that I am co-hosting (in another city) next weekend. So life is going to be a bit insane for the next two weeks and I suspect I’ll be lucky to maintain my blogging goals let alone much WIP but we’ll see. I’ll keep at it!

As an aside, I saw a great idea on Jenny Hansen’s check-in post. She has as a goal to visit and comment on two new ROW80 people each week. I think this is simply an uberliciously great way to be supportive and make new friends so I am going to try to implement the same idea (thanks for that Jenny – fahhhbulous). But…only after the next 2 weeks of insanity!

Blogging Goals:

This week on track again:

  • Blogged 5 days (6 posts) including this post.
  • Read, commented, retweeted/tweeted on over 40 blogs in total so well past my goal of 10/week.

Although not one of my goals, I have pretty much depleted my stock of “prepared” draft posts to pull from so I need to spend some time getting my folder plumped up again. Would have been ideal planning had I recognized the INSANE two weeks ahead and done it beforehand but hey…I like a wee bit of a challenge so woot woot!

How is your ROW80 progress going thus far?
