ROW-80 Check-in 4-17


I missed last Wednesday's check in! I've been so busy lately.

I started plotting a story. I haven't put them on index cards yet, still trying to thicken the plot. I've written some scenarios and am working on some sub-plots. I need to find away to make the story more interesting.

I've not written any short stories. I wrote a sketch for an on-line class but that is it.

I haven't even really read my writing books this week, but I have been reading. Hopefully I'll have some more exciting news to share by next Sunday at least.

I missed last Sunday and Wednesday. I'm probably going to have to put ROW80 on hold until after the end of the month. We just found out that our house is being auctioned at the end of April. We're already moved, but we don't have everything moved out yet. Ugh! I'll probably post about it tomorrow. In no way does this mean I'm giving up though!

I've been reading quite a bit too - I kinda feel like it's helpful. Best of luck next week, have a good one. :)

I'm getting lost reading as well, I think it's important for writing. Good luck with the plotting.

Good luck with your plotting.

I've found that writing short stories help my novel writing in that after I've outlined the whole thing, I can concentrate more on finishing at the scene level.

Well, now. This is my first check-in for this round, so since I'm living in a glass house, I won't throw any you-didn't-meet-any-of-your-goals stones. :-D

Life happens. And plotting takes work! Lots of work. Good luck this week!

Good luck with the plotting! Also, reading is EXTREMELY helpful at any time for us writers, but *especially* during the plotty stages. At least, it is for me. So, hopefully you'll find some inspiration during your reading time! Happy writing! :D

Reading is so helpful for me when I'm stuck in my writing or when I'm having to force words. Glad you posted this.
