This week wasn’t nearly as productive as I thought it would be when it started out. I really kicked some major butt on Monday and Tuesday, writing a total of 2,448 words. Then, Wednesday and Thursday I was sidelined with a Monstrous Migraine. Every time I thought it was beginning to fade, it flared up again. Needless to say, my week was totally thrown off track.

On the plus side, the same wacky weather that triggered said migraine—from snowstorm one week to temps in the 50s and 60s the following week—also melted most of our snow, which was a blessing. I’m starting to see some hints of spring coming back to the landscape (most notably, the birds are singing again). I’m ready for springtime and summer, seasons made for growing things and reading and writing outside as much as possible. And, also, pretty summery dresses, which I don’t own many of but absolutely love. I’ve already told hubby I’m forking over some money for one of these dresses:

Which one do you like? Personally, I’m leaning toward the purple paisley. 🙂

Aside from fantasizing about warm weather and shiny things, I did manage to make some progress on the writing front. I’ve surpassed 20,000 words in my WIP! Hopefully I’ll have a finished draft within the next couple weeks.

ROW80 Goal Progress

  • Wrote 3,171 words in WIP, “Good, Old-Fashioned Magic,” a paranormal romance novella. I’m about 5K-8K from a finished draft.
  • Checked in on Twitter every day except Wednesday. I also checked in on WANA Tribe a couple times this week.
  • I didn’t manage to do any blog comments on Wednesday and Thursday, so I didn’t meet that goal for this week. I did meet this goal for Monday and Tuesday, and I checked in with a couple fellow bloggers on Friday.
  • Blogged Sunday, but missed Wednesday’s check-in due to Monstrous Migraine.
  • Continued reading “The Fire in Fiction” by Donald Maass and “Walking in this World” by Julia Cameron, though I’m a little behind schedule.
  • Wrote one article for super-secret project and started another but didn’t finish it, so I came in a little shy of my goal.

What about you? What is your favorite season and why? Is there anything you miss about spring and summer? And how is your writing coming along?
