ROW80 - Check-in

Wow!  It's the end of the first week of Round of Words already!

I'm not off to as great a start as I would like to be, but I'm not doing too badly.  I missed the first check-in on Wednesday, but I didn't really have much to report anyway, since I only posted my goals on Tuesday.

Anyway, here's my report for this week:

1) Write 25,000 words

So far I've written 3696 words this round.  It could be better, and I'd love it if they were all brilliant words that I'd want to keep for my WIP (they're not), but I'm on track to make 25k by the end of the 80 days, and I'm writing, so we'll call that a win.

2) Post on Blog once a week - besides check-in posts

My Saturday, when I had planned to post my non-ROW80 post, sort of fell apart and I didn't get any writing done yesterday.  But I decided to go ahead and write that post this morning anyway, so it might be a little late, but I did it.

3) Write first draft of short story (Fortune Taker)
No progress on this one so far - at least not writing.  I did spend a little time thinking about how I want it to go, but I definitely have to carve out some time on the calendar to DO something on it. 

4) Make progress on Last Words
No progress on this goal either.  Sigh.  I'm still trying to figure out how to work all this into my schedule.  I'll get there.

And now I'm going to see if I'm smart enough to get the Blog Hop code to work...

You've written about the same amount of words on your WIP as I have this round. We all have to get on the routine that works for us. You'll figure it all out. Good job!

Almost 4,000 words is not bad, especially for your first week! A lot of people only check in on Sundays. What's great about ROW80 is the flexibility. Have a great week, and good luck with your goals!

You did better than me! So celebrate that!!
Honestly, I think a lot of people had trouble with this week because it was a shorter week, so don't feel too bad.

Also, you don't have to update every single time. I update once a week.
