ROW80 Check-in 02/05
Hello my friends!
Here we are for another check-in.
And I’m here to report some slacking.
My hubby went into a job trip to the US last Sunday, so every member of my family expects to be visited while he is away. Since I write full-time, I’m jobless, you see, and I have tons of free time, so it won’t matter if I do nothing for many days. What they want, of course, is to spend time with my daughter, not me lol
These past few days I’ve been hanging with my mother-in-law or my brother, his wife and his daughter—they live in the same city. Then today, Sunday, I’m going to our family house at the beach. I’ll stay there until Wednesday WITHOUT ANY INTERNET CONNECTION!
Which means: not getting much done.
- Participate of the EditPalooza workshop offered by Savvy Authors from Jan/2 to Feb/4. (I’ve been warned this is super hard work and consumes many hours of the day. Let’s see if I can keep up!)
- Write a novel (or get as far as I can with it).
- Read 5 books each month (year total = 60).
- Social network: blog at least once a week (not counting #ROW80 checkins), comment on blogs every other day, and tweet a little everyday.
Social Media: Hard to comment on blog through the phone. Hard to keep up with twitter through the phone, but I’m trying.
EditPalooza: On Monday, 4 assignments were posted. Then 2 more on Thursday. Now that I’m on “vacation” I’m feeling overwhelmed.
Reading: Read James Scott Bell’s book last week. Even though the workshop is not done yet, I just wanted to finish the book.
Reading Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvager.
Writing: Monday, I worked on some plot and outline. Don’t know how many words I wrote, but it was quite a few. And then I got nothing else done.
Hope you guys are doing WAY better than me!

Note: since I’m without internet for the next few days, forgive me for not getting back to you guys right away. I’ll catch up when I’m back!
