ROW80 Check-in 04/07

ROW80 Check-in 04/07

Hey friends! Welcome to my weekly ROW80 update! First, let me tell you about what has been happening over here. Well, I’ve been quite busy … Destiny Gift just released and the blog tour is close, so I’m writing guest posts and interviews right and left. And we’re moving this next week. We bought a house and I’ve been running up and down organizing everything (asking documents from Brazil, translating them, home insurance, transferring the electric and cable accounts, organizing the moving per se, and all else that it involves). So, I foresee almost no writing this next week.    Here are my goals for the past week and how it went: Participate of CampNaNo. It’s going … Writing: continue writing Breaking the Reins. I think I wrote… Read more »

ROW80 round 02 of 2013 starts today!

ROW80 round 02 of 2013 starts today!

I’M BACK TO ROW80!! Have you heard of it?     From the website: A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life. We are all different and we all have different demands on our time.  Why should we all have the same goal?  The simple answer is that we shouldn’t.  If you want to be a writer, then you have to be able to roll with the punches and adapt to your changing circumstances.  If that means changing your goals when your life blows up, so be it.  ROW80 is the challenge that champions the marriage of writing and real life.   Like the last three rounds, I’ll set up weekly goals and… Read more »

If you have been coming around here for a while, you heard about #ROW80. I’ve been participating of it since the fourth round of 2011, so I kinda consider myself a veteran ;) If you don’t know what #ROW80 is, here it goes: From the website: A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life.

#ROW80 Check-in 12/16

Hey friends! Welcome to my weekly ROW80 update! Here are my goals for the past week and how it went: Writing: just keep writing. Honestly, I don’t remember this week all that well. I remember critiquing a lot, then running around with interviews I needed to answer, guest posts I needed to write … I also got edits back from the novella that comes out in Feb and worked on that. Plus, everyone knows what happened on Friday and I just couldn’t get myself to focus on anything else that day. Reading: finish book #76 of the year, and finish critiquing CP’s manuscript. I read book #76, finished the CP’s manuscript, critiqued 65 pages of another CP’s ms, and 3000 words of another… Read more »

Hey friends! Welcome to my weekly ROW80 update! Here are my goals for the past week and how it went: Writing: just keep writing. I want to finish this novella I’m writing before my brother and his family arrive (Dec 18th). Well, this week was different. Again. I got the final pass on the galleys of my novelette (out 12.12.12!) and I had a lot of emailing, organizing to do. The NA Alley account was also my responsibility this week, right when we had (are having) a big event with Entangled Publishing. So I spent a lot of time answering emails. A LOT. More on this below. Reading: finish book #74 of the year, and critique CP’s manuscript. Read book #74 and #75 and I’m… Read more »
