ROW80 Check-in 7th April 2013

Well week one has gone well! I am on holiday from School so I should have probably achieved double what I achieved but still, achieving something is an achievement, right?!

Here are my goals:
1) Read as much as possible aiming for at least TWO books a week.

2) Read through my chick-lit first draft and make notes. At least an hour and a half of this each week.

3) Write a ROW80 check-in each Sunday.
And here is how my week has looked:

Monday - Finished a book I was reading (book 16 of the year).

Wednesday - Put all of my WIP in one document to re-read as it was scattered all over the place. It was today that I had a mini freak out when I couldn't find the end of my WIP. By checking my blog post from last year I uncovered that I handwrote the end. How do I not remember this?! Fingers and toes crossed I can find it when I get back to my flat on Wednesday!

Thursday - Finished a book (book 17 of the year).
30 minutes re-reading my WIP and making notes on four chapters.

Friday - 20 minutes reading through WIP and made notes on four chapters.

Sunday - Finished a book (book 18 of the year).
50 minutes reading WIP and made notes on 5 chapters

So I have achieved all three goals this week! I have LOVED having reading time and I have enjoyed re-reading my WIP even though I make painful notes such as 'change the plot/change the order of the whole thing'. I have some thinking to do about my MC and the theme of the story (wink at Lauren for the gchat earlier!) but I will mull them over as I read through the rest of my WIP.

I hope you are all having fantastic weeks and let's hope the coming week is even better!!
