RoW80 -Week 3, Wednesday Check In
This morning, part 3 of Roommates that I finished and submitted last week went live on LitErotica. There’s an approval process so it doesn’t go up right away. So far, there are 4 loves on the story, a rating of 4.69 in 26 ratings, and two new people following me. No one has commented with words yet but that’s not uncommon.
My writing progress this week:
- 1399 words – fiction – This was one of those scenes that appeared pretty much fully formed in my head and then came out of my fingers as soon as I set them on the keyboard. It uses the soulmate trope and a vampire finds his soul mate the night she is dying/dies of cancer. She demands that he find her sooner next time.
- 1394 words – dog blog post and a ghost post for a Verblio client
- 960 words SGA fanfiction. I can’t resist Shepherd/Todd
- 976 words – fiction. I decided to do the Flash Fiction Friday prompt that was up this week. I’m not entirely happy with it or even sure it filled the prompt. I’m good with specific instructions but vague prompts are more of a challenge. That’s not a bad thing. Unless it’s something simple like kink bingo, I agonize over whether I did it correctly. The scene I wrote is related to the thing I wrote Monday because it’s still sitting in my brain. Monday’s was a dying old woman and a vampire. Today’s was a moody teenager and a vampire. That’s here.
It’s another strong start to the week. I just hope this week ends better than last. I’m currently at 3335 words of fiction and my weekly goal was 3500 words fiction. I also finished two blog posts (one on the dog blog, one paid ghost post on Verblio), which meets my non-fiction goal. I don’t want to just skip days though. I’m trying to build a habit after all. So my revised goals for the next 4 days are to write at least one non-journal pomodoro session each day.
