ROW 80 Check-in 31st August

A simple but effective three days since last check-in. Plan was to add words to my WIP with my mini-goal of reaching 30,000 words before I return to work on Friday.

Now for the word counts.

Monday - 2269 (an hour and a half of writing)

Tuesday - 828 (50 minutes of writing)

Wednesday - 1215 (57 minutes of writing)

So that is 4312 words in three days! So my WIP wordcount is 28,206 words which means today/tomorrow I need to write 1794 words which seems achievable I hope.

I have also done a walk instead of drive journey so that is one exercise done this week.

Hope everyone has had successful weeks! I am off to work on my non check-in post for this week.

3 weeks to go!!!


  1. Great start to the week, Em! Nice job working in the exercise, it really makes all the difference.

    Hope the rest of your week goes smoothly :)

  2. That's great!! And even if you don't get to 30k, you are still that much further along and you should feel awesome about that!

  3. Good work! Very encouraging. Keep it up!

  4. Oh wow! You're doing SO well. 1794 is so achievable in 2 days. I'm well impressed with your over 2k day! Just think... that's more than in a NaNo day...

  5. Keep up the great work! You'll hit your 30k goal. How are you feeling about the words you're getting down? I have days in which I'm extremely satisfied with my writing, and a few others where...not so much! Ha!
    Talk to you soon ~ Nadja

  6. Gene - I definately need to keep up the exercise, feel so much better for it once it is done!

    Claudia - You are right. After going to the shop I hope to sit down and write my way to 30k but if not, I have achieved a lot over the last few days!

    Thank you Wendy! I will try but day job is going to get in the way! Will see how it goes, fingers crossed!

    Newtowritinggirl - thank you! It did make me think maybe I can handle NaNo, it will just be finding the time.

    Nadja - I hope I do hit 30k. The words I am getting down....some I like but I think there will be A LOT of editing. Something you said on your check-in has inspired the topic of my non check-in post this week....will be sure to link it back to you!

  7. WOOT WOOT! Freaking YAY Em :) Congrats on those word counts! Be super super proud of yourself. That's so awesome! Fingers crossed for you to punch out that last little bit to make your big goal! But definitely pat yourself on the back for what you accomplished. Way to go!

    Marie :)

  8. Yay, wonderful update! Great job on the word count, and happy to hear that you managed to get a walk in. I've finally forced myself to get back to using my glider, and even though I dread the workout, I always feel loads better once I'm done.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  9. I'm rooting for you! I hope 1794 comes easily and by your deadline. Exciting.

    Thanks for your support and stopping by Depression Cookies week after week!

  10. Em ~
    Well, now you've gone and piqued my interest...I'll be clicking over here to find out which part of my 'rapier-like-wit' or 'sage-like-words-of-wisdom' inspired.
    Ha! Heh-heh-heh.
    Okay, seriously, I'm really interested, and can't wait to see that post. Hope I made you laugh. ~ Nadja

  11. Thank you Marie - I did make it! Saw you comment half way through and it kept me going!

    Jamila - I have done another walk but I really need to do more I think, I love it once I have done it!

    Tia - I made my deadline! Thank you for your support!

    Nadja - Do come and see! I plan to post it tomorrow so keep an eye out!
