ROW80 Check-in, Week 5

Here’s my linky for this week.

As it turns out, my optimism on Wednesday was justified. I didn’t manage to write on Saturday, but for once was home on Sunday, so that wasn’t a problem. Since Wednesday, I’ve written two sonnets (about 200 words total), and 1,100 words on my main story. That puts me at around 2,400 for the week; 300 words ahead of the 2100 I needed to catch up.

Excluding sonnets, I’ve now written around 9,500 words. That’s more than half the 18,000 words I’m aiming for, at less than half-way through ROW80.

That’s not to say I couldn’t be doing better, though. I’m following a pattern of alternating good and bad weeks, and while that does mean I’m writing regularly, it also suggests that I could write a third as much again if I apply myself consistently.

  1. Great to hear you’re doing well on your ROW80 goals! And sonnets – wow. I could never be bothered with the structural limitations.
    Good luck with the rest of your ROW80 – you’ve got a really achieveable goal there. More power to your pencil!

    • Thanks for the luck, and the link!

      I actually started doing sonnets because of the structure; if I try to write poetry without a specific structure, I just end up rambling and getting nowhere.
