ROW80 Check-in: Celebration Week

Because of all the plans we had around birthday celebrations this week, I didn’t really expect to be productive much. The nice thing about low expectations, though, is that when you do manage to accomplish stuff, you feel like you really accomplished something. I blame it on the ridiculous COOLness of Chris Isaac’s concert Wednesday night:

When you watch someone bring that much joy to their creativity, you can’t help but be inspired. The birthday roses and snapdragons may have also helped:birthday roses

Wonder of wonders, I participated in 3 #wordmongering sessions yesterday and produced over 2K words, which puts me over 15K for Blood to Fire.

My other words for the week continued to be marketing (guest blog posts, author interviews, etc.) and blog work, but I also read the last in Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series, and the first of Tracey Sinclair’s Cassandra Bicks series. You’ll see those reviews later this week.

I’ve set the personal goal of getting Dementional to my editor this week, so I don’t know that I’ll have any kind of word count to add next week. I do like the subtle nudge of the weekly check-in to keep me at least somewhat on track with all the various balls I have in the air. It may also help that my dismal June sales have already been doubled in July, so I have more reasons to forge ahead.

Until next week, then, I’ll continue with my promoting, but hope to have Dementional shipped off for a good edit, too.

Here is the Linky for the other check-in posts. How are you other ROW80 writers doing?

    Good Job Tonya! You really have the motivation to write even with so many activities. I admire you you for being multitasking. Hope you will have a great week.

    Even with the distractions you still squeezed in 2k words which is fantastic! Progress, in any form, is the real key. Keep pressing for those goals and have a super week, Tonya 🙂
