Still Going Well – ROW8- Check-in 12th Oct

I’m still rocking my word goal this week. OK, so that means Monday and Tuesday, not that long, but I’m still rocking it. Because I’m loving the graph thing, and as I’ve done more words than yesterday when I did a graph (here) here’s another to show my progress:


He he. I’m loving this. Even more I’m loving that the actual line is getting higher and higher above the goal line.

Last night I got home, cooked and watched a movie. I then turned on the laptop to write, but couldn’t get anywhere. Eventually I started writing, got into it, and managed 611 words. pretty good going. Obviously not as good as 1733 on Sunday, or the 826 on Monday (yes, I’m bragging that I’m doing so much better than my 500 word goal every day!).

On Sunday, on the check-in blog, Kate suggested getting a buddy for the challenge. I didn’t have to look for one, because one came looking for me. The lovely Laura from NovelKicks and her own blog, sent me a text asking if I wanted to buddy up with her. As I met her in real life a few weeks ago, and know I really like her, I quickly agreed.

Man is she tough. She’s been texting me everyday to find out how I’m doing. I think yesterday I might not have done any, if it wasn’t for her asking how I’d done. Thanks Laura. πŸ™‚

I’ve got 2 hours of train journeys tomorrow for work. I’m really looking forward to it, because it means I get to sit and read on work time – woop! I’ve just started Mitigating Circumstances by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg. I’m only on page 21 but already getting into it. I’ve not read a proper thriller for ages, and I feel like this is just what I need right now. Bring on tomorrow!
