#ROW80 Week 4: Less

Unlike many other ROWers (linky), I’m not starting NaNoWriMo this week. No sudden burst of effort here.

I did get 1,200 words written on Conkers, but I only wrote four days out of seven. I was still sick this week though; I should get more done now I’ve recovered.

On the bright side, I finished reading Pride and Prejudice. I’d expected it to be a good story — if not what I’d usually read — but the style of description surprised me. Unlike The Great Gatsby‘s vivid metaphors, Jane Austen names the actual emotions involved.

Admittedly, Gatsby is about a hundred years more recent, but they’re both good books; I’m sure there’s something to learn from both of them.

Good luck and happy writing!
