ROW80 Week 6: Tweaks

(other ROW80 participants)

I spent last week dealing with the cold and keeping up with work. My goals got one evening of writing, and that was it.

As of today, I’m reinstating my goals. However, I won’t be counting writing done after 9:00 pm each night; hopefully this will help me get the sleep I need to recover.

Good luck and happy writing!

ROW80 Week 5: Tissues

(other ROW80 participants)

I spent this weekend surrounded by piles of tissues, due to the cold. It’s not completely gone yet, but I am beginning to recover.

While I did get a bit of writing done over the week (four evenings in total), I haven’t made any progress on my other goals.

Good luck and happy writing!

ROW80 Week 6: Tired

(other participants)

The past week has been tiring. I’m not really sure why — possibly lingering effects of being sick.

Despite that, my progress has been pretty good. I met my goal of writing on six days, and spent some time reading and editing on the weekend.

I also finished reading Book 1 (out of five) of The Wealth of Nations.

Adam Smith’s writing is interesting, if a bit wordy. While I didn’t pick it up as research, the book’s got me thinking about the economics around the heroes’ abilities in Conkers, and how that could change the setting I’m imagining.

Good luck and happy writing!

ROW80 Week 4: Reviving

(other participants)

Last week I decided to relax my writing goals so I could recover from being ill.

That’s had the expected result: I’m now feeling much better, but I only wrote five days out of seven, and made no progress on my other goals.

Beyond that, this has been a week for new ideas. A lot of my writing was notes for a new setting I’m considering using for roleplaying, and I finally started reading a book I bought ages ago.

Good luck and happy writing!

ROW80 Week 3: Ill or Well

(other participants)

Writing-wise, I met all my goals this week: I wrote six days out of seven, edited my short story on two of those days, and I’ve worked on a few things I could use for an extra blog post.

However, I’m still sick. I am recovering, but not as quickly as I should be; probably because I’m not taking the time to rest.

For that reason, I’m letting my writing goals slide in favour of getting more rest and getting back to full health.

Good luck and happy writing!

ROW80 Week 2: Sick

(other participants)

Last Friday was the first roleplaying night this round. I didn’t get any writing done that day because we finished late, leaving me with only five writing days this week.

I’m not convinced I can’t manage six yet, however. I was sick this week, and that won’t last all round; and more experience running roleplaying will make it easier to finish on time.

Editing was also a day short; I left it until the end of the week, then got distracted by other projects.

On the other hand, last week’s plot hole is resolved; and I’m on track with my blogging goal, having posted a mini-review on Sunday.

Good luck and happy writing!
