ROW80 Check-in: November already?

NaNoWriMo has begun . . . and I'm going to streamline my ROW80 reporting, adopting a format from other ROW80 writers. If you are in this year's NaNo challenge, search for bluebethley. 

Writing goals for the coming week:
--NaNo write 1,600/day for a total of 9,600 words by Sunday on current wip, Rivers of Stone. Strategy: Focus on Section 04: Cat and Kane traveling with the fur brigade in a late crossing of the Rockies. 
--Edit Reaching x10 chapters for minor typos.
--Review one book for SASP writer by Thursday.
--Write 3 poems to complete OctPoWriMo challenge.
--Send e-mail alert for Years of Stone and Reaching (both running a GoodReads giveaway starting November 4.

Other: Yes, I'm doing daily exercise to ease that strained hamstring AND I'm quilting on several projects simply for the sheer joy of making something with my hands. This evening cheered the Seahawks to a narrow victory over Dallas.  

Just for fun, here's my favorite pic from Halloween, reading to my granddaughter in her bumblebee costume (without wings, but she's an angel).

And that's all, folks! See what other writers participating in A Round of Words for 80 Days are up to in this final round for 2015. If you are a writer, why not join in?


  1. I love the picture of your daughter. She is doll!

    1. Thank you, Chris, but that is my granddaughter, just 4 years old. Thank goodness, she loves books!

  2. You have some big goals listed there... I'm having a hard time keeping up with NaNo right from the beginning--though I've been in that position in the past and still completed the challenge. I hope life cooperates with me this time, anyway. Good luck on your end, too! :)
