Wednesday Check-in

Much like the heat in Texas, I'm hot. I've hit my ROW80 goals every day for 11 days now. (Haven't started writing today's yet) 11,112 words. And on my 1kx365d goal, a 10 day streak for 11,713. There's some free writing in addition on this second goal that's giving the difference in numbers. I've got two separate spread sheets going to track all this.

Yes, I am being that organized for this. I blame the NaNoWriMo report card someone started several years back.

Where are all these words going? Well, everything written for ROW80 has gone into finishing a novel I started 4 years ago. I have few scenes left to write, and then I have a completed draft zero for DEFAH. (My acronym for the current title) Once that's done, I'll need to add/adjust my ROW goals to include some editing/revision time for DEFAH. Logan, Miss Farnsworth, and the gang are almost ready to see the world outside of my head. they've been scared/tortured enough in my mind for the last 4 years.


  1. You know I totally approve of spreadsheets and tracking. Way to go on those word counts! Nice streak!

  2. Thanks Kait. I've only missed one daily goal since ROW80-3 started. On my 1k365d sheet I put days I make goal in green, and days i fail in red. So nice seeing 10 green days strung together!

    THANK YOU for starting this challenge. It's so what I needed to get me writing consistently every day again.

  3. Wow. Great job on meeting your goals every single day. You put me to shame. I haven't even been able to check in each time (missed it on Sunday and won't be able to today, either). Great job!!

  4. Thanks Jen. You're probably much closer to ready for publishing than I am though. I'm going to have a train wreck to rebuild first. :D

  5. Organization is key - way to go! Eleven days in a row! *high five*

  6. Tiffany, this post was written before I started on Wednesday's ROW. Those streaks run on to Wednesday and Thursday too!
