RoW80 Check-In: April 11th!

“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!

And I of course have to take a moment to thank Jody and Moths to a Flame for following the blog! Welcome aboard, guys! Good to have you here.



  1. I am quite inspired by you today! Your freedom to flex with life and still stay focused on your goals w/o beating yourself up. Good for you! And I think this means you will be in my neck of the woods this weekend….does Comicon happen anywhere else in addition to San Diego? Have a ball!

  2. Hi L.S.!

    Great job, working on more than half of your goals! (See what I did there? Positive thinking!)

    I would love to be able to read 100 books in a year… I just don’t have the time. It might be a great goal to add to my ROW80 after I graduate in October!

    Good luck with the rest of the week!

  3. You finished Black Stones! Congrats!

    Ah, George. He’s inspired me so much! I really need to read the newest book in that series.
