ROW80 update


I didn’t do too bad this week.

5 out of 7 days I made my 1000 word count- not getting on the internet helps a lot. I’ll continue with this goal.

I did write a first lesson, but it’s weak. So for this week I’ll work on lesson 2 and see if I can make lesson 1 stronger.

I checked out a lot more then three review sites and sent in requests for 5 sites. I haven’t heard anything back yet. I hope this means they are busy and not rejecting my story. Ah the fragile ego of a writer. I will check out at least 3 more review sites this weeks and send requests into those who seem like a good fit.

I didn’t send anything to my critique because my poor critique partner is totally overwhelmed with work, classes, and having gotten sick. We won;t meet again until the end of the month so instead I’ll change my goal to making edits suggested by my critique partners on two previous chapters.

How is everyone else doing?

  1. Great job this week. I wouldn’t worry too much about the lesson being weak, first drafts/runs are like that and I’m sure that over time you’ll be able to refine it into something strong. Be patient with the review process – yep, all writers have that fragility – press on without worry, in time you’ll find the one that fits and is excited about your work. Persistence is the eternal key to success.

    Have a great week, Alica 🙂

  2. Great word count week, Alica! I struggled to get much done last week, so I’m hoping for a much higher word count this one. Sounds like you’re doing terrific! Keep it up.

  3. Congrats on the wordcount, Alica! I only get to count that sort of bulk if I include blogs. GOOD FOR YOU!! Congrats and I’m wishing you another fantastic week. 🙂
