I didn’t make much progress towards #ROW80 (linky) this week.
That’s not so much not doing enough, as doing too much on other things. I actually wrote in excess of four thousand words this week; but they were on setting ideas, my research project, and a thing I found on the Internet rather than stories.
Similar to Worm last round, I was distracted this week by watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. While I certainly don’t regret watching it, it did overshadow my thoughts all week, and may have interfered with my writing.
Unlike Worm, though, I can’t claim it as a book. I did start reading a new book this week, but I’m not that confident I’ll finish it by the end of the round.
I’ve had a tendency to redefine my goals each time I’m unhappy with a week. It’s not worth it this late in the round, but I wonder if I need to declare that research project as an actual goal. The truth is, it’s as significant to me as Conkers is, and of a similar scale; it doesn’t really make sense to pretend it doesn’t exist for the purposes of #ROW80.
I’ve been worried it wasn’t mature enough to mention yet, but I have to talk about it at some point…
One response to “#ROW80 Week 11: Pause”
Because this is the writing challenge that recognizes we have a life, that life often shows up in our ROW goals. Go for it . . . and then we can celebrate with you when you make progress.
All the best for the rest of Round 3 and all of Round 4.
