#ROW80 Check-in 05/06

Hello there!

Welcome to the weekly #ROW80 check-in.

Here are my goals (and how I’m doing):

  • Organize my new home and my new schedule. Almost done. Actually, I’ll consider this done, since we won’t add anything new to the house for a while and my office is workable ;)
  • Once my life is normal again (or almost), find a gym and exercise 3 times per week. I actually went to the gym on Monday and signed the contract. Then went to classes on Wed (pilates mat) and Fri (Groove … or dancing). Not 3 times a week, but progress! Next week will be 3x for sure ;)
  • Participate on Crafting the Sensual Novella Workshop from April 9th to May 6th. Today is the last day, so done.
  • Finish revising my novel, DESTINY GIFT. Done! Done! Done!
  • Start a new novel or novella and get as far as I can with it. Still on planning stages, though I wrote 2 scenes already and have the outline for many others scribbled down. I filled the beatsheet too (Save the Cat! anyone?). I’m gonna try to finish it in May, because of … (look at next line) …
  • In June, participate of the JuNoWriMo. To count, I’ll start writing something new here. I”m thinking a novelette and novella, and add up to 50k words with both.
  • Read 5 books each month (year total = 60). On track.
  • Social network: blog at least once a week (not counting #ROW80 checkins), comment on blogs every other day, and tweet a little everyday. Done. May will be a busy month on my blog, with lots of blog hops and blog tours.

This week was busy! I finished revising DESTINY GIFT, and there was also the launch of my group blog NA Alley … did you guys check it out yet? You should ;) We’re a group of seven writers trying to promote the New Adult category, which isn’t recognized yet, but we won’t change what we write because it doesn’t exist. Anyway … you can visit the blog and read all about it there. Oh, there’s a giveaway going on there!

And Friday, I spent the day with a migraine and because of that, couldn’t focus on anything. Got nothing done on Friday =(

I think I forgot to say this before, but Saturdays and Sundays are family days, where I try to do nothing writing-related, other than read a book after sleeping. I’ll probably add that to my “goals* …

That’s it for now.

  • I love Save the Cat :) I think there’s a lot of us that likes to use that for novel work. Congrats on your goals this week. You were on fire!

  • Congratulations on finishing DESTINY GIFT! I’m in the process of editing my latest novel myself and I can only imagine how good it feels to be finally done. And I’m very impressed with everything else you manage to do this week, I hope this week is just as good for you. Happy writing!

  • Congrats on finishing the revisions of Destiny Gift – huge accomplishment. I’m a Save the Cat type as well, the beat sheet is uber useful for the first planning stages, although I go a bit beyond it before I start to seriously write. I have NA Alley tabbed to look at later in the day, sounds interesting.

    Have a fantastic week, Juliana and all the best for the new projects :)

  • Congrats on such a great week!! You should totally add the weekends off goal. I bet it helps a ton with all that you’re trying to balance. Hope this week is even better and with no migraines in it.

  • Congrats on finishing Destiny Gift! Sounds like it’s been a busy week. You definitely should keep weekends free and restful! You’ve earnt it. :)

  • Great progress, Juliana! It sounds like you’re settling in and starting to really knock off some goals. Best wishes for your novella. Have a fabulous week!

  • If I can continue with a book I’ve already begun I will probably do the June challenge.

  • Wow, all I see is “done” almost all the way through. Congrats! That’s a really great accomplishment, and I’m glad to see you got your revising done. And yay for the gym! We’ll both be working hard for this coming week. :)

  • You have been a busy bee!!! Great work….I get tired thinking of all the moving and soaring you have been doing!

    Junowrimo? Sounds exciting and I thought ‘I’m gonna do it too’ but then I remembered it is one of the busiest months EVER at work and my niece or nephew will hopefully be with us by the start of June….I guess I will just cheer ou on!!

    Have a great week!!
