Hello Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ll be taking a couple weeks off while I finish my latest WIP. I’ll be back soon.
The end is near. I’m talking about this round of 80 days. 😉 I’m also nearing the end of three manuscripts. I’ve been working hard this round, but I’m not sure how I’ll feel if I don’t finish one of these projects soon.
This week, I worked on read throughs for two of my WIPs. I’d meant to work on the final scenes for one of them, but I just couldn’t concentrate on new words. I’m very anxious to get back one of my WIPs from betas and the read throughs kept my attention. I’m grateful I was able to be productive and find a way past my nervous jitters.
If I’m not able to hit send before the end of the round, I don’t want it to be because I let the last couple weeks fly by. There’s no time to slow down. It’s time to stay the course and continue to work past the nerves which are only going to grow as I get closer and closer to hitting send.
So, here’s to a big push to the end and to finishing at least one project. Have a great week everyone.
The Goals – week-9 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- done. I keep thinking about those endings. 🙂
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- done. I finished a read through on one WIP and almost finished the read through on another. Lots of little changes that only added up to about 100 words.
- Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual and daily breaks from technology)– done. My birthday week was lovely. It ended with a great visit from my mom. 🙂 I only worked out once this week, but that’s more than last week.
What you might have missed here this week:
Good luck–I hope the end of this crappy winter is coming, too. I’m seeing signs of spring…
Yes! It’s slowly getting warmer. So nice. It’s terribly dark here this morning. Dang day light savings time.
It’ll be even darker tomorrow because I’ll be getting up at the crack of down!
luckily it won’t stay dark in the morning for long.
I didn’t know it was your birthday week! Happy Birthday! I’m showering you with coffee beans. Are you sure you don’t want to stretch it out to a month? 🙂
It was. Thank you, Donna. 🙂 Oh! A month, what a fabulous idea, lol.
Sometimes that last push to The End is the most difficult. Good luck getting to yours! And happy belated birthday, too. 🙂
The ends are hard, so true. Thank you. I definitely could use a bit of luck sprinkled on top. 🙂
First, a Happy belated Birthday!
Next, …wow, the pressure you’ve got working for you there is pretty intense. May it hold well and produce some fine cooking for all to enjoy. 😉
And even if you don’t hit send on all the dishes you’ve planned to serve up, it’ll just mean that people will be hungry for more when the rest is done.
I can’t believe Round 1 of ROW80 is almost at an end. Time is really flying.
Good luck with your WIP! 🙂
