4th Sunday Check-In - #ROW80

I am not as far ahead with my goals as I would have liked at this stage, but given all of the family stuff that I have had going on I am relatively pleased with my progress.

  • Take part in Camp NaNo during July and write at least 20 pieces of flash fiction or 10,000 words. - I have 11 stories ready for second drafting and the foundations laid for 15 more, and my word count was 6,184.
  • I will spend Aug editing the pieces I have written and either submitting them to magazines or putting together my own collection. - Not started yet
  • Read and review 11 books. - Only one and a half so far, with all the family stuff going on I've barely had a minute to myself.
  • Work through the kinks in my WIP and progress with that, or finally lay it rest and start work on another novel. - Not started yet.

On top of this I have added another goal for August.

  • Complete the challenge for the month (use the site to write a minimum of 750 words a day). - Completed every day so far
How about you? How did you get on this week? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you. And remember, if you want to visit others in the #ROW80 blog hop you can use the links below.


  1. Sounds like you're making quite a bit of progress, despite all the 'stuff' life throws at you. Congrats! :)

  2. Good luck with the 705words challenge. I keep looking at it and then chickening out! I look forward to hearing about your progress on the Camp NaNo pieces! :)

  3. Thanks guys. The 750 challenge is going well so far with a 7 day streak, and I have had some positive feedback on some of my early drafts as well. So, even if I'm not as far along as I would have liked things are at least moving in the right direction.
