ROW80 Check-in #14

It’s check-in time again. Where does the week go? Anyway, it’s been a week of ups and downs, but it was worth it. I’ve now got all my work up on Amazon and it appears to be selling well. I’m pretty pleased with the results. Now I have to learn all the tricks etc. for the Amazon site. Darn, I wish I was more tech savvy. Ok, on to the goals.
Goals.
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
So far so good since Wednesday.
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
I still haven’t started the new WIP. I’ve been working through a few possibilities in my head before getting started. Tomorrow is WSD day. (Write Something, Dammit!)
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
I published 26 or more novels on Amazon this week, does that count? No? Sigh
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 finished reading Keeper by Kristine Williams and posted the review. Find the book here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/6403
Five: do more to be supportive of new and struggling writers.
I’m now finishing up A Breath of Hope by Robert Taylor. Loving this one. You can find it here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/79381
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.
This has gotten pushed aside recently, but I hope to get back to it soon.
Ok, that’s about it for today folks. How is it going for you? Did you hit your targets? Let me know how it went for you.

ROW80 check-in #10

Hi folks, it’s been a bit of a tough week writer wise, but a load of fun otherwise. Yesterday was our 16th anniversary. Friday we went shopping and burned off a credit card or two just for fun. We went Friday as a big storm was forecast for yesterday. On that shopping trip we found a yarn store with lots of wonderful fibers to fondle, a great little dog for a guardian, and a delightful woman to chat with.
We spent hours and dollars there. Yesterday, during the storm we sat knitting and giving thanks for our warm cozy cottage, the wonderful years we have shared and for the love that continues to grow between us. However, all that bonding did cut into my writing quite a bit. So I wound up doing this:
Instead of doing this:
Now, on with the confession, without further ado, here is the progress on those pesky ROW80 goals.
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
I blew that. argh
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
I`m way behind here, but will catch up this coming week.
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
Ok, we have some action here. Book #4 of the St. John’s series went up on Smashwords this morning.  Here it is:
