Well, as you may be able to tell from the title, the couple of weeks since my last ROW80 post have been a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, I’ve still been reading lots, which is great. I’m currently reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, which has been on my To Read list since the author was one of the pep talk writers for last year’s NaNoWriMo. It’s got a fairly slow plot, but the language is very poetic and just plain pretty, so I’ll be keeping going with it, I think.
Writing has been going up and down; I’ve had some really good thoughts concerning my WIP, but in other ways I’ve been struggling to get past the planning stages… I’ve handwritten a few pages, but keep realising other things I’ve got to figure out and then I get all worried thinking about those and get distracted from just writing the parts I shouldn’t be worried about. Ergh…
In other news, I have decided to attempt the 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge. While I’ll be using the Mission 101 community on LiveJournal as my main place to update my progress, I’ve also posted the link on a page here and will post my progress along with ROW80 and other updates. I’m really excited about it; there are a lot of things on there that I’ve had on my To Do list for a long time, and maybe with this I’ll finally get my butt into gear and do them.
So that’s me for this week. Hopefully I’ll have things to say in the last few check-ins of the round. See you all around! 🙂
