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 only a little over 2k this week. But I also reread the 25k words I already have and revised them a bit …
  • Reading: keep up with Goodreads challenge. Done.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times. Done.
  • Exercising: at least 3x. Only 2x. With the moving, birthday parties, and walk-throughs, I barely had time to write. And write is more important than exercising lol

 

My goals for the next week:

  • Participate of CampNaNo
  • Writing: keep writing Breaking the Reins.
  • Reading: keep up with Goodreads challenge.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times.
  • Exercising: none.

Like I said above, this week is going to be crazy because of the closing and moving, so I kept it realistic: I doubt I can get any exercising done, and I know I’ll write only a little =(

 

On my blogs (this one and NA Alley) this week:

– Interview With Travis “Mad Dog” Maddox from Walking Disaster and Beautiful Disaster 
– Featured Book of the Month: The Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel (giveaway!)
– Announcement: Pitch Contest with Spencer Hill Press
Vote for the next book on the Alley Reads! 
Cover Love: The Trouble with Goodbye by Sarra Cannon
Cover Love: The Faerie Prince by Rachel Morgan

 

Oh, don’t forget that my novel Destiny Gift is out!

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 check-in every Sunday.

So, my goals for the first week:

  • Participate of CampNaNo
  • Writing: finish Breaking the Reins, start Everlast #2.
  • Reading: keep up with Goodreads challenge.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times.
  • Exercising: at least 3x.

Good luck to us! Let’s have fun!

#ROW80 check-in 01/27

Hey friends! Welcome to my weekly ROW80 update!

Here are my goals for the past week and how it went:

  • Writing: continue writing Breaking the Reins. Mon = no school = kid at home = no writing. Tuesday = 1000 words. Wed = 1500 words. Thu = 3300 words. Fri = 1000 words.
  • Reading: finish reading book #5 and #6 of the year. Hm, I just finished book #7. And read the rest of my CP’s ms and returned to her (76 pages).
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times. Yeah, sorta.
  • Exercising: at least 4x. Five times.

I’ve been distracted this week because we’re house hunting. Slow and steady, but we have begun. Well, it’s exciting, and it’s stressful too, so that is taking a lot of my mind.

 

My goals for the next week:

  • Writing: continue writing Breaking the Reins (Mon, Tue and Wed).
  • Reading: read book #8 of the year.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times.
  • Exercising: at least 3x.

 

I’m going to Cancun this Thursday! Yeah, so exercise be damned, and I won’t get any writing on Thu and Fri, and my reading time will be short, but, oh well, it’s Cancun, right? It’ll be for only 4 days though.

For that, my check-in post will probably be written on Wed night and scheduled to come live Sun, or I’ll check in only on Monday … we’ll see.

UPDATE: sorry for posting this update so later, but a tragedy occurred in my town in Brazil, and my thoughts were (still are) there today. Here’s the news of the tragedy, if you’re interested: http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/27/world/americas/brazil-nightclub-fire/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

 

Have a great one!

Cheers,

Hey friends! Welcome to my weekly ROW80 update!

 

Here are my goals for the past week and how it went:

  • Writing: start Breaking the Reins. Send Destiny Gift to the editor. Monday: wrote 2000 words and recycled 1500 words. Just to explain, I say recycle when I copy and paste from some other version or idea, and revise it to fix and adapt it to the new novel/version. Tuesday: wrote 3525 words and recycled 2407 words. Wed: it’s snowed = no school = kid home = no writing. Thu: wrote 2000 words. Fri:  1500 words. Also, sent DG to the editor, and sent the first 13k words of BtR to my CP ;)
  • Reading: finish reading book #4 and #5 of the year. Finished #4, and I’m around 80% on book #5. I also read 15 pages of one CP’s ms (and finished it) and 80 pages (of 155) from other CP’s ms.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times. Done. I’m turning the internet off while writing, so I’m not tempted to pop on twitter.
  • Exercising: at least 4x. Six times.

 

My goals for the next week:

  • Writing: continue writing Breaking the Reins.
  • Reading: finish reading book #5 and #6 of the year.
  • Social media:  Twitter: try to be present, but not too much. Blog: post a couple of times.
  • Exercising: at least 4x.

This week will be complicated. The kid doesn’t have school on Monday, and she has early dismissal on Wed, which means less time for me to write. And, if that was not enough, apparently, it’ll snow a lot this week. If it does, my daughter’s classes will be canceled and I won’t write … I’m not sure how many words I’ll be able to write this week, but I hope it’s enough to keep my self imposed deadline.

 

On my blogs (this one and NA Alley) this week:

 

Have a great week, guys!

Cheers,
