A Round of Words in 80 Days – Check-in #3

This week was an incredibly busy one for me and I’m afraid I didn’t complete all my goals for this challenge. But this is what happens when you spend one day of the week in Paris, and one in London, when you launch a Twitter account (you can now follow me here), when your day job takes over your life, when you exchange emails with publishers and when you interview writers for your blog. Don’t get me wrong, I had a great week, I just didn’t write as much as I wanted to (my need to sleep is ruining my schedule).

So let’s have a look at my goals:

1-    Write the first draft of my new dystopian novel with at least 750 words per day: not completed. I did write a few lines here and there but nothing close to 750 words a day. I might need to update this goal if my day job keeps me insanely busy as it did this week.

2-    Self-edit/revise The Last Queen so that I finally have a final draft for it: completed to a certain extent (the first part of the novel is edited). This is the only writing task I did this week, and it’s coming along well.

Here is the Linky for the other check-in posts.

This week on my blog you can find:

–       an exclusive interview with YA writer Beth Fantaskey on her books and the craft of writing.

–       a post on the definition of YA fiction.

–       my book of the week.

–       my pick for the Waiting On Wednesday meme.

How are you other ROW80 writers doing?

    Editing is important progress, too. And with the week you had, it sounds like that was enough. I found when I was deep into editing, it was hard for me to work on other writing.

    Sounds like a crazy week! I hope you have more time to write this week 🙂 Headed to check out your YA post…

    Sometimes other parts of our life do intrude on the writing. Great job on the editing front. I hope you have more time to write very soon. I clicked over to read your post on YA fiction. Very nice! I am a YA writer myself and have looked into various definitions and descriptions as well. It’s such a broad category, but there are indeed general rules.

    Best wishes for a wonderful week and a great ROW80 round!

  5. Congrats on starting Twitter!

  6. Yay, a Twitter account! That’s fantastic. And yes, given everything else happening in your life, not getting all of the writing done that you wanted is definitely understandable. 😀
