RoW80 2016 Round 1 Recap

I thought I was going to take today off from writing any blog posts. Then, I remembered it was the end of Round 1 of RoW80 today. Which means it’s time to look back at how I did for the round. I had my mid-week check-in yesterday, so you can read that if you want to see how I did for the first half of this week. I’ll still have my Sunday check-in, too, even though RoW80 is now on break.

I’m pretty sure I’ve changed my goals once or twice during the round(pretty typical for me), so I’ll add in other things I got done if they aren’t on the list.

Plotting:

  • Protecting the Heart(BC Security #2) – this probably won’t be til near end of the round. – plotted this & one other story. 7313 words of plotting(that’s mostly character back story)

Writing:

  • Love Who You Love(Kurztown #3) – finish 1st draft – not quite there. But, I have written 43614 words on it this round. May not finish before the end of the month, but probably early next month at least.
  • By the Gun – finish 1st draft – not even close. Keep getting snagged with this one. May end up setting aside. Have added 16799 to it.
  • Protecting the Heart – write 20k – not quite there, either. Have added 7389 to it.
  • Also worked on Ready When You Are(21219 words) & Paint Me a Picture(1o,274 words),

Revising:

  • Flames of Retribution – Revise to send to CP – have this revised and waiting to be sent.
  • My Way to You – Revise to send to CP Did 1st revisions then set aside until I get caught up with ones that need to be sent
  • Flames of Recompense – Organize to revise – didn’t even start on this.
  • I also got Stained Snow back from beta reader and made edits & published it. And got Stained by Ashes back from CP, edited & sent it to betas. Already have it back from 1, will wait until I get it back from the other beta before I start revising. And got Healing the Heart back from CP. I’ve just started working on those edits.

Reading:

  • Listen to 6 audiobooks – 14/6 audiobooks. Audible had sales. What can I say?
  • Read 75 books – 62/75 books. Fell a little behind in my reading.
  • Read 3 craft/research books – Just about there with this. Have about 15% left to read in the third.

Crafting:

  • Knit: 3 projects – 3/3 wp-1458472651866.jpgwp-1455725888008.jpg wp-1452703179989.jpg
  • Crochet: 3 projects – 1/3 wp-1457884609936.jpg
  • Loom: 3 projects – 1/3 wp-1453911831298.jpg

Overall it’s been a pretty great round. I’m still trying to find the best way to fit in everything I want to get done. That’s probably never going to happen, though. I’ll have my monthly recap sometime next week and goals for next round up sometime before it starts on 4/4.

  1. Good for you! What a productive Round. Here’s to a great Round 2!
    Diana

  2. Awesome progress! You did very well. I am amazed at how you were able to fit most of that in. And I love your knitting projects.

  3. Gosh you are creative! I can hardly wait to retire and have time to do these things. 😉 Bravo, Fallon!

  4. You’ve had quite a productive round! Well done. I did not – but hope to start again on the 4th.

    You did amazing! I loved your comment about audible having a sale–I use that excuse every time I one-click a book, audio or otherwise. LOL We are so much alike! 😀

    You kicked wordcount butt this Round, and I have faith you’ll do the same in Round 2. I need the next 5 days to figure out my Round goals and how I’m going to get it all done. I will be glued to my planner, I think, to make sure I am crossing everything off my list! (I couldn’t live without that thing. :)) Have a great weekend!!

    • Thanks! Yeah, books are about the only thing I have a weakness for when it comes to sales. It’s why I have over 250 books on my amazon wish list, so I can see when they go on sale & snap them up.
      I still have to figure out my goals, though I have a general idea. And need to get my sponsor post for the next round written.
