ROW80 2/26 Check-in

I’m starting to get back into the swing of things, I hope. I posted Part 5 on Friday, and was able to get a little plotting in.

I will confess that I’m running a lot slower than I would like. I’ve read a lot of Japanese Manga recently, catching up on them. I am a sucker for a well told story, and there are a number of well written series.

I’ve said it before. Even small steps are better than none. I think I’m just in a time of life at the moment where I can’t get as much done as I’d like, but that’s ok with me. I’m taking it one step at a time.

Row80 2/19 Check-in

It’s been a rough week for writing. Between the cat having fleas, and some general frustrations this week, I haven’t been able to get much done. I delayed Part 5 of my VYA till this Friday because of that. I was finally able to get some writing in today, but it felt really slow. It’s taking me a bit to get back into the writing. Plus, I’m not sure where to leave the story at the moment, so that doesn’t help. As I said before, such is life. You just keep plowing through.

Hero’s Tale VYA – Part 4 ROWing along

I’m combining 2 posts into 1 today. Let’s go through the votes for Part 4 first:

A) No, he needs to hurry on his journey. – 0 Votes
B) Yes, he can take a little time to assist. – 5 Votes

Another overwhelming vote. Hmm… I don’t think the result will be pretty.

As for my ROW80 update… Writing wise, the last two days were non-existent, other than a small amount of plotting for the next steps of my VYA here, and the serial I am planning. I expected that, so not a big deal to me. Otherwise, as you see, I have some writing to get to in the next couple days. I think it will be exciting.

Sorry I don’t have more. It’s a quiet day, and I want to see how much writing I can get in.

I added a late email vote.

Row80 2/12 Check-in

I would say that I’m doing a lot better compared to my last check-in on Wednesday. Part 4 finally got posted. I wanted to get it up Fri, but that was my fault for not getting it edited fast enough. I might try and write both possibilities, but that will take time from other writing.

I haven’t done a ton of other writing. I’m finding that doing the VYA is somewhat draining. You have 2-3 days to write and edit a 1,000 word piece. I’m not quite used to that yet. Thus, I haven’t done anything on my main work yet. A bit annoying, but I know it’s my own fault for not working on it. I will get to it soon.

I did get to a few other ROW80 blogs last week, and I’m going to attempt to get to more this week as well. I’m one of the quiet children in the group, but I know that already.

Tonight though, I’m relaxing a bit. After all, I need to do research for my blog post about the game I’m currently playing.

Row80 2/8 Check-in

It’s been a bit of a frustrating week. My VYA is going well, even if it’s a small group of people commenting. I haven’t been writing as much as I would like. Last week was rough, and it just wasn’t easy to get any words down. I was working on Part 4 last night, and just felt distracted. Yup, I’ve been a lazy, non disciplined writer.

I feel like I’m at a frustrating point. I want to keep writing, but I have all those doubts nagging at me. I know I’m no Jack London, or JRR Tolkein. I know my writing can improve. It’s a matter of slogging through all those doubts and worries, and writing. Taking the time I’ve got, and writing what I can. Even if that is only 10 words.

I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish Part 4 tonight, and have it ready for Friday. There are those blog posts that are calling to me as well. Sigh. Such is life, right?
