Time to check in with the Round of Words in 80 Days!
So… how did week one of the Round of Words go? Not bad, not bad. Here’s some stats:
WORDS WRITTEN: 2,245 (all planning and plot points)
TOTAL TIME SPENT: 2 hours, 28 minutes
OVERALL IMPRESSION OF ROW PROGRESS TO DATE: A good first week. I had some parts where I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked (like tonight — I need to learn some better tools for working through a headache) but in general I think I’ve been making progress. And it’s been GOOD progress, too, not just slogging along and getting nothing real accomplished.
For the coming week, I need to see if I can do a better job of getting in more time than hoped for, which does include avoiding headaches that keep me from getting anything accomplished. I also want to see if I can get a better handle on the setting. I know the approximate time and place, but I want to see if I can narrow it down a bit… I might be able to draw some more plot ideas from that. I’ve been getting good ones, but they’re all character-driven and I want to try for a little variety if I can.
I hope you all had a good week! I know I have, even with the headache.
