“‘Don’t you think you’re being unreasonable here?’ Locke demanded, running his wrist across his chin. It was still bleeding, though it seemed to have slowed.
‘No.’ The answer was as simple and succinct as his next punch.”
It’s really hard to believe that this round of A Round of Words in 80 Days is nearly over! I know for a fact that my last soft goal, of getting our hapless party to the Caves by the end of the round, is probably not going to happen. Getting to the narrative midway point of Auferrix’s chapter might be the next reachable goal, but I’m going to go easy on myself and decide that as long as I get through getting Awngel on board, I’ll be pleased. A lot of the details and way things go were shifting around in my brain today. I finally have two days off (hooray!) and plan to get a lot of work done! Wish me luck!
Goal, for this round, has been a little bit of an arbitrary word for me. What’s important is that I’m writing and enjoying it (which everyone who’s been keeping up with my updates knows that I thoroughly have been) and that I have a platform from which I can talk about my WIP, get feedback and encouragement from others, and just keep on writing. I’m still a far cry away from my initial ‘goal’ of actually just finishing the second draft in this round, but I have still managed to make a lot of progress and a lot of great improvements on an already pretty good story, if I may say so myself. I wouldn’t have had the motivation or the drive without having joined RoW80 and without the support of my fellow RoWers. So thank you! Thank you all for stopping by and encouraging me on! And I’d like to encourage anyone who isn’t already participating in RoW80 to consider joining up on a future round. It’s a great motivator and a great bunch of people I feel very honoured to have started to get to know!
And speaking of great people, I’d like to thank Alica McKenna Johnson for the subscription! Welcome aboard! I hope my loosely “Harry Potter in Space” doesn’t disappoint!
