ROW80 – Round 4 – Check-in #15

It’s time to update you on my ROW80 progress. You can find a list of my goals here.

Work In Progress Goals:

Is it time to check in already? Wow!

  • 0 hours on WIP (goal: 5 hours/week)
  • I haven’t touched base with my ROW80 Sista, Nancy J. Nicholson yet (I suck) but I will shortly.
  • I reported on my ROW80 goals on time.

On the WIP front, I got nothing done so far this week. Hubby and I took Monday off as a little vacation day so I ignored all things writing. Last night I cleaned instead of writing and trust me, my house was in DIRE need. Tonight I might get to a little writing if death by swimming gets canceled since we are in the midst of a snowstorm. We’ll see. Deep down, I gotta be honest, I’m kind of hoping I’ll be writing tonight…

Blogging Goals:

  • Blogged 3 days (4 posts) including this post
  • Read, commented, retweeted/tweeted on at least 10 blogs.

How is your ROW80 progress going thus far?



  1. I have a friend who talks about “ironing the jeans” to her boyfriend. It’s what they call all the things they do instead of writing. 🙂

  2. I have been relatively progress-less this week. Kids on school vacation, plumbing issues, father’s health problems, and much more keep sucking my writing time. I am working on character bios, which is good. Best wishes for a wonderful thanksgiving!

  3. I came here from ROW80, not expecting to find somebody else who didn’t do much writing on her WIP this week either. Me too, unfortunately. Will smack my own hand, and promise not to use the ironing jeans euphinism (for a while, at least).

    Love your blog (hate pink, but that’s just the rebellion female in me).

  4. Think of your mini-VaKay with hubby as moodling time, especially if any canoodling time opens up ideas for a romantic sub-plot. LOL! Hey, I’ve got all the excuses, er, justifications down pat.

    Have a happy Thanksgiving Natalie!

  5. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the snowstorm keeps you from having to attend the swim torture! Progress of any kind is still progress…so this week counts as a PLUS! Score! Win!

    …okay, so maybe not on ALL fronts…but still, a win is a win. You reported Row80 on time – I say we break out the wine and celebrate!

    • Alas, they did not cancel swim class so off we went. I got 4 more laps in than last time so making progress. That definitely helps! 🙂
      I am all for wine and celebrations and can always find some excuse to rock it out! LOL!

  6. This week is Thanksgiving week, so everyone is in a break of sorts.
    Don’t worry about it. I’m sure you’ll catch up soon enough!
    And Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. I had an unproductive week in the writing department as well. But it’s all good — you know, the family comes first, and I’m glad you and your hubby took a “day off” 🙂 Good for you!

Don't be shy...tell me what you think
