When I realized yesterday that I would have to make a RoW80 post today, I was a little taken aback. It was Sunday already? I guess the week has been kind of a blur from balancing the new job, my writing work, time with my boyfriend, and trying not to die on HabitRPG. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Things are getting done and I’m keeping myself so occupied that I don’t even have much time to stop and consider what day it is. I like that. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that, last Monday, I was inspired to write a lot of blog posts, so I didn’t have to write much for the rest of the week, just post what I wrote beforehand. Who knows? Either way, it’s Sunday, so let’s have a look at those goals.
Goal One: Serpent in a Cage. Transcribing things never seems to take very long. I’m a quick typer, and sometimes I really get in the zone. Doing a chapter a day has brought me almost to the end of this draft of Serpent in a Cage. After today, there’s just two chapters to go, and it’ll be all typed up! I’ll probably start editing it by next week. There are some pretty strong, amazing parts, but some pretty weak, terrible parts, too. It’ll be time to get it just a few steps closer to being perfect (or as close to it as can be).
Goal Two: Short Stories. It’s funny, isn’t it? Sometimes, I can whip out a short story in a week, or even a few days. Other times, it seems to take me forever, even though I generally write at the same page (at least a page a day). This current story, a ghostly love tale for a contest, seems to be moving at a snail’s pace. I think it’s because I don’t usually work in romance, but I’m trying to challenge myself. It’ll get there! Good thing it’s a fairly fresh contest and the deadline is all the way into July!
Goal Three: Heartless. The second book of The Slayer Saga is coming along nicely. I just finished Chapter One, and it’s already charged with a lot of tension. This book is likely to be much sexier than Soulless at this rate, too, which is kind of exciting and a little unexpected. I’ve been keeping up with at least a page a day, so it’s steadily gaining momentum.
So,that’s that. Still holding steady. Don’t forget to check out fellow RoWers here!
