ROW80 check-in #7

Wednesday is here and I’m not quite ready. However, it is a cold rainy day so maybe I can catch up a bit. Ah well, time to ‘fess up. Here’s the scoop on my progress towards my goals since Sunday.
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
Yep, right on track here.
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
I’m way behind here, only about six hundred so far.
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
I’m just waiting for the cover of one book right now and I will have another ready to go soon.
Four: Read and review six or more first novels by new authors. (I don’t give bad reviews, so don’t panic, I’m friendly, honest. J
I’ve just started reading Stone Relics by Katy Walters. Great story, but not for the faint of heart or those with a weak stomach. You can find it here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/125390
Five: do more to be supportive of new and struggling writers.
I’ve managed to read and comment on several blogs. Too many in fact, that’s why my word count is down. The trouble is, there are so many great blogs out there. Sigh
Six: Publish a small collection of erotic short stories. Hey, I’ve been around for over sixty years, and this one is on my bucket list. I will make it happen in 2012.
I’m starting to organize this now. I have a couple written and need to add a couple more. More research is in order. J
Ok, that’s about it for today folks. How was your week? Did you hit your targets? Let me know how it went for you.
I’ve posted a chapter of my current WIP here: http://www.prudencemacleod.com/p/immortal-tigress.html
I’d love some feedback if you have the time to read it.

    Sounds like you're doing pretty well to me! Erotic, huh? I don't think I could do it. And 6 novels??? Sheesh! I'm trying to get 2 out this year! But then again, this is my first time ever self-pubbling, so…

    I'm finding that the more I meet my social media goals, the less I meet my word count goals. And forget about gym goals! I guess we all need to find the balance, huh?

    It's easy to get distracted by the social media. My family is telling me I must find a balance. Maybe you pick a day or stick to hours. But I found there are days that are more important to be on that others. Just my take. I suck at the whole twitter banter though. :-/ I have little doubt you'll pull through in the end. You always seem to find a way. 🙂
