Hello gentle reader,
It is time for the last ROW80 check-in for this round! Where did the time go?… I hope you had a more productive week than I did…
Quote of the Week
“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
J.K. Rowling, 2008 Harvard Alumni Association Commencement Address.
Picture of the Week
I was in Paris this week (for my day job).
My goal for this round is to write every day. This week, the day job was crazy, and I only managed to write
2 days out of 7.
Word Count of the Week
This week I added 3000 words to my Work In Progress.
Book of the Week
Skylark by Meagan Spooner
This one had been sitting on my TBR pile forever. I won a copy a few months ago thanks to a giveaway organised by the lovely Ayesha Schroeder.
Good News of the Week
This week I entered my YA Epic Fantasy THE LAST QUEEN in the Write On Con Pitch Fest and got a nice comment from an agent. It is also a contest, and results should be announced this week…

On my blog this week I celebrated my birthday with a book giveaway (still accepting entries!) and I explained the genre of my Work In Progress: Gaslamp Fantasy.

Paris is looking very beautiful!
Last week was pretty intense what with work and my friend’s wedding, but after tomorrow I’ve got some time off which I will put to use with lots and lots of editing.
You had a crazy week and you still managed to add 3k, good for you. Love the JK quote, good thing to remember. Happy Birthday 😀 Hope you had fun in Paris.
I did, and thanks for the wishes! 🙂
Good luck writing every day honey 🙂
Its so annoying when real life gets in the way isn’t it!
It is! But I knew this week would be tough. Here’s to hoping this one’s better!
Paris! I miss Paris. That shot of the Eiffel Tower brings back good memories. I had a lot of fun there.
