ROW80LogocopyI wasn’t feeling well for a few days this week, so I didn’t manage to keep up the pace I was working at last week. Last week I revised eight chapters. This week I managed one, though I’m digging into more major revisions, so my pace is going to slow down anyway. I won’t have the feedback on the last five chapters of the manuscript back from my critique partners until early July, so I doubt I’ll finish a second draft by the end of this round. But I can still make some major progress on what they’ve read so far.

ROW80 check-in

1.) Writing:

  • Finish the second draft of the novella I finished in Round 1, “Good Old-Fashioned Magic.” Revised the first chapter. I’m still not completely happy with where it’s at, but it’s improving. I also wrote 720 words, the first scene in a new story.

2.) Read 4 books on the craft/business of writing.

  • 4 of 4 books read.

3.) Social media:

  • Check in on Twitter daily. Goal met for Thursday and Friday, not for the first part of the week.
  • Comment on 3-5 blogs per day, Monday-Thursday. Goal met for Tuesday and Thursday, not for Monday and Wednesday.
  • Blog 2 times a week. Missed Wednesday’s post. 1 of 2 posts done.

What about you? How are your goals coming along?

And before I forget, happy Memorial Day! How are you celebrating?

A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life. It’s also a blog hop!
