ROW80 Check In
It’s Wednesday! Which means it’s time to check in with ROW80.
Round two officially began Monday, but writers can sign up on any check day (check ins are Wednesdays and Sundays).
So how have I been doing since round two kicked off? Uhm. Well. Yea…
Monday – I didn’t write anything on Monday. Zip. Zilch. Not because I didn’t want to, I was just too busy elsewhere to get my butt in the chair. As many of you may or may not know, my husband and I are in the middle of moving overseas to Okinawa, Japan. This is our last week in our apartment, and even though the military will pack everything for us, it’s up to us to go through the rooms and evaluate what’s going with us, what’s staying in storage, being donated or thrown away. When I got home from class on Monday, that’s what I did. I did most of the apartment too. I’m hoping to finish this evening and Friday, because the movers come on Monday. Anyway, by the time I decided to take a break from sorting through stuff, it was dinner time, followed by homework and then sleep.
Tuesday – I did a little better yesterday. I wrote 245 words in Zoraida and spent 30min editing Party Favors. It doesn’t seem like much, but being that life is crazy-busy — I’ll take what I can get! Yesterday I was also in class all day long, but even though I was tired from that, I pushed myself to write — even when I had trouble finding people on Twitter to do #1K1Hr with me.
Wednesday – Well, that’s today. I haven’t written yet, and if I do get the chance to write it will be later in the evening. I have class at 11a, followed by another trip to the base nearby, followed by more sorting of stuff.
Even though I’m not doing as well as I’d like to be, I’m OK with my minimal progress. I knew going into ROW80 that my start would be slow. By the end of April all my school projects and papers will be turned in. First two weeks of May will bring me a week of finals and graduation. By May 18, I’m flying overseas — so my real progress won’t start until late May.
How about you? How are you doing so far? (Don’t forget to link your progress post on the ROW 80 Check in)
Don’t forget, tomorrow I continue my Online Identity blog series with “Facebook, Twitter and Blogs, Oh My!”
