ROW check in - 2/19 - Backsliding
Making a Sandwich

ROW80 check in 2/22 - lowered expectations

I finally decided to "adjust" one of my objectives. I'd wanted to edit my WIP for 90 minutes a day, didn't seem that big a task when I set it, but it just wasn't happening. I decided to aim for only one hour, that works better so far, maybe because it's less intimidating to start at. When I was writing my novel two hours it was more a more creative flow. I had some scene outlines and knew it was a first draft so just 'had at 'er'. Editing is creative too, but in a different way, slower, more thoughtful, a juggling of characters and sub plots. And harder to measure progress in, other than time spent. But, as I said, an hour is easier to start at, and some days I get on a roll and just kept going.

My second objective- short stories - is going well. Another one is due this Friday, the topic is 'making a sandwich'. I had a good BLT for lunch at my local, chalk it up to research. I do find these weekly challenges keep me thinking during the week, and are short enough that they are easy to write.

Third one -blogs - is a couple of days behind, but pub was MT except for me and server April, so catching up was be easy.

A final objective could be to do the Sunday and Wednesday checkins on Sunday and Wednesday I suppose.
