“With her hands folded demurely in front of her, she almost looked like some exotic doll on a shelf, but there was steel in her dark grey eyes.”
It’s Wednesday, which means time for another RoW80 check-in, but it doesn’t quite feel like my typical Wednesday. It hasn’t exactly been a typical week for me. I’ve got the weekend off to traipse off to ComicCon with some friends, which means the days I usually have off (Monday and Wednesday) are filled with what I’d be working on the weekend. So that means I haven’t had as much writing time as usual, so I haven’t made much headway on any of my goals since Sunday. Which is okay, because that’s how life goes and I’ll have some time this weekend instead, but it makes for a pretty boring update. But you’re going to get one anyway. Neener neener.
Bowlful of Bunnies: “Black Stones” is finished and I feel much better about it now, so it’s joined the line-up of finished stories. This morning, I made a breakthrough on the first Closing Lines challenge story and that should be finished soon to add to it. I’m still waiting to hear back from a few other pieces and I’ve been slacking off on contacting cover artists, but, for the most part, things are looking pretty good for the collection! Next week, I really want to start getting the heavy stuff worked out, contacting beta readers and getting a cover started. But not until after this weekend, omg. Stories completed: 11/20.
Serpent in a Cage: I managed to….finish one page of this piece since Sunday. ROCKSTAR! But, hey, every little bit counts, right? But I’ve just recently started the next book in A Song of Ice and Fire, which always leaves me salivating and wanting to work on my Aryneth stuff, so I’m sure this will pick up again soon. Page count: 63/100.
The 100 Books Project: As I’ve said in the past, there’s always time for reading. I’m almost finished with a book, so I plan to complete that before bed tonight, and then another will bite the dust and it’s time to pick up a new one. I swear, I think starting a new book is half of the reason finishing a different book is so exciting. Books read: 12/100. (1/38 for this round).
Other Novels: You can bet that if I haven’t had much time for BoB and SiaC that the other books haven’t really been touched.
Book No. 002: See above. Wah-wah-waaaaah.
And that’s all she wrote for this check-in. Sunday should be much more eventful. But have no fear. There are more RoW Updates to read here! Please swing by and offer support to my fellow RoWers as well. Until next time, cowboys. Happy writing!
