#ROW80 Check-in – November 22, 2015

This is very much a drive-by check-in. I’ve just been to a Thermomix demonstration, and it went a lot later than I was expecting. However, there was a lot of delicious food, so I’m not complaining. I kind of want a Thermomix now. Too bad they are $2000 or so each. Anyway. Enough about Thermomixes. Goals this week:

  • Write at least two pages in notebook or 200 words on the laptop every week day. Consolidate this on the weekends.

After struggling to write a decent ending for draft 1 of Operation: Sugarplum, I decided to call Draft 1 completed on Monday. Since then, I’ve been using my own slight variation on the Snowflake Method to plan my next WIP. I definitely reached 200 words every day; on Wednesday I was up around the 700 mark and on Tuesday it was over 1000 words of planning. I also had quite a lot of traveling yesterday, so I did some editing on Operation: Sugarplum.

  • Write one book review a week and queue them up on the blog.

I wrote review of Winter that went up yesterday. I wanted it to go up while the book is still in shiny new-release mode. I rejigged my scheduled posts a bit to allow it. My review of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl also got posted on Friday.

  • Send three Postcrossing cards per week/maintain maximum total cards traveling.

I didn’t get a chance to do that this week. Which is to say, I had plenty of chances and ignored them. Heh. Next week.

All right. That’s it from me. I’m off to bed.
