ROW80 Check-in 4th May 2014

Well, it has been a fairly successful week!

My goals were:
1) Edit, revise, mould, burn, cry and repeat.
3) Check-in on Sunday.

Goal 1 - I managed to print the story out and read it through not editing at all. I then gave it a few days while I mulled things over and had clever thoughts whilst hoovering and driving. Then today I sat down and edited my short story. I have just made the alterations and I am fairly happy with my story! I am however going to leave it overnight and have one more read through tomorrow morning before emailing it off for the competition.

Goal 2 - I have decided on 'In Bruges' as the title. I toyed around with millions of different ones but kept coming back to this one. It is simple and I like that!

Goal 3 - Done when this is posted.

I have still not managed to do much in the week but for now I am happy if I am still achieving things at the weekend! Because the last month has been about my short story, I am going to take this week to recharge and think about my next steps. I am 99% sure that I will continue re-writing my chick-lit story but I may go back at read through the start of the rewrite first. My goals for this week are therefore quite simple.

1) Read through short story and email it off.
2) Create a plan for my next project.
3) Read two books towards 100 books challenge.
4) Check-in on Sunday.

I am trying for the third time to read 100 books in a year.  I have managed 25 so far so I am about 11 books behind but as I have no plans to move this year (I have the last two years!) so I am hoping I will achieve this goal! 

I hope everyone has had wonderful weeks and I am going to check out some of your check-ins tomorrow.



  1. Hey, nice to see you, Em! I've been remiss in updates, but it feels like it's been a while! Hope you're doing well! Best of luck in the coming week!

  2. great job on finishing editing the short story! And good luck on figuring out your next project.
