My Week In Review – ROW80 Check-In 5

Hello gentle reader,

It is already time for the fifth check-in of this round! I hope you had a good and productive week…

ROW80 Check-In

My goal for this round is to write every day. This week, I managed to write

4/7 days

Word Count of the Week

I’m currently trying to keep the Camp NaNoWriMo momentum and this week I added 7000 words to my Work In Progress. I’m very pleased with this, especially since I edit as I go. This word count means I’m *nearly* done with this novel…

TV Show of the Week


This week’s episode of Doctor Who was set in Victorian England! It started off as a Gaslamp Fantasy, which I was thrilled about, but ended up being a sci-fi episode. I had a great time watching it nonetheless!

Links of the Week

This week I wrote a guest post on Aimee L. Salter’s blog about Writing Rules.

On my blog, I discussed How To Make The Most of a Novel Writing Month When You Don’t Have Time For It.

There And Draft Again now has over 100 followers and this week, Mara posted about Creating Fantasy Creatures and Rachel shared her Top Ten Fantasy Movies.

Meanwhile, The Write Stuff for Boston Auction is still in full swing and I suggest you check what’s being auctioned every day. Whether you’re a reader or a writer, there’s something for you there!

Finally, in case you missed it and if you need to smile… here is a Channing Friday post. I promise you it’s awesome.

Next Week

Next week I shall finish Lily In The Shadows. There’s no going back, now.

How was your week? Make sure to share your writing progress and what inspired you this week in the comment section below!

    I only saw glimpses of this week’s Doctor Who while my hubby was watching it, but I liked what I saw (I’m really behind on the Matt Smith episodes…someday). Did you read (it’s not “high literature, but is lots of fun) the Doctor Who novel The Clockwise Man. Fun for a similar reason…

    Writing every day is hard. Awesome that you’re keep some of the CampNaNo momentum going. I fell down on that completely…. :-/

    Yay for the news on Lily in the Shadows.

  6. 7000 words in four days sounds pretty awesome to me. And they’re edited words! Well done! *shakes pom-poms* (No, that wasn’t a euphemism.)

    I wonder what would happen if, instead of saying to myself “you have to write this story or finish that book,” I said “you have to play with writing every day.” Would my Muse be more cooperative if I weren’t trying to tell her what to write all the time? Hmm…

    Yay for adding so many words this week! (I know, I know, I’m behind on my blog reading.) I really,REALLY didn’t enjoy “The Crimson Horror.” I hate saying that, because Doctor Who is one of my all-time favorite shows, and I really do love it to death. But I guess you can’t love them all.

    Keep up the great work!
