Life happens. And I have to face that fact. So when it does, it sometimes means that the writing gets put aside. And I forget a couple of ROW80 check-ins to boot. At this time, I’m just beginning to get back to my goals after about week of not doing much, I’ve started again. I worked on developing an idea and continued incorporating changes to my novel revision – about 30 pages worth.
Here’s hoping it continues.
Ah…the passion for my novel revision is still there but life — life is getting in the way, and that is not such a bad thing this week.
School is starting this week so it’s been a lot of prepping my oldest baby this last week for a new phase in his life – First Grade. And mentally prepping myself, as well. And physically prepping and trying to get ready for the school season again. So my other baby – that novel revision – has been sitting to the side this past week. No changes incorporated in seven days. I eeked a page or two for my original draft this week but that’s about it.
The good news: the passion to accomplish my goals is still there and there’s still a bunch of days left in this round. Whew!
Ah…I haven’t been quite as consistent with my revision this week and the pages…forget about it. It’s been a hectic week – just me alone solo with the kids. For some reason I thought I could accomplish more having time to myself after the kids went to bed. Not so much. Tiredness and cleaning trumped writing. I gritted my teeth as I wrote that last sentence. The clean house I needed so I could start the next day in a semi-good mood and the tiredness…well, you know, after an entire day with three active little boys, it was inevitable. What was I thinking?
So onto a new week…and hopefully, new progress.
Still going…incorporating those changes to the draft of my mystery thriller. The one thing with my writing that I have been consistent with this week in the midst of prepping for a birthday party and reading six books and writing up book reviews. I’m happy that I am still consistent when it comes to working on the revision.
The pages are another story. It’s a work-in-progress to get up to five pages a day. Again, I’m hoping it will get better this coming week. Not as many things going on, though I will be solo with the kids while the Husband is away on a business trip. Hmmm…one can only hope.
