AROW80 Check-In for February 26, 2014

Hello again! I am currently sitting on my couch, watching the last episode of Midsomer Murders that Netflix has and feeling very sleepy and cozy and generally in pretty good spirits.

Personal Goals: 

  • Work on following diet plan that the dietitian worked out and generally making better food choices. — Still working on this ; I realized today that I’ve gone a week and only had French fries once. Which says something, since a week ago it would have been the reverse (i.e. gone a week and only NOT had fries once).
  • Keep dentist appointment next week — That’s tomorrow.  And I am ever so nervous about what they’re going to find. But, again, Tooth Pain Roulette is getting on past old.
  • Work on getting exercise  — Still needing to work on this.  The cold weather isn’t helping but my biggest problem is being a lazy butt. 

Writing Goals:

  • Defcon: Fade Out — Still working on Chapter Seventeen but there’s not much left to write of it before I’m on to Chapter Eighteen. I’m thinking that I’m going to end up raising my estimated number of chapters from 20 to 30, just to give a bit more wiggle room.  And I have a feeling that a couple of those extra chapters may end up going at the beginning of the novel.
  • I’m checking out the Manuscript Wish List Day tag on Twitter. Not that I’ve got a manuscript even close to completion but it’s interesting to see what agents and editors are looking for. #MSWL is the tag.
  • Also, as I’ve been on a podcast kick: Writing Excuses is a really cool podcast, aimed at covering different aspects of writing. They’ve got about nine seasons worth of episodes and a lot of them are SF-centric, but there’s also a lot of general writing advice as well.

One thought on “AROW80 Check-In for February 26, 2014

  1. I’ve only seen a couple episodes of “Midsomer Murders,” but I do have to admit that I have a real weakness for “Murder, She Wrote.”

    I’m also finding my WIP difficult to pin down on the number of chapters. I think I’ll have to add a couple extra chapters at the end in order to allow enough time for events to play themselves out.

    Good luck with your ROW80 goals!
