On a ROWl: A Terrible Pun

First of all, thank you to everyone who read and commented on my WIPpet Wednesday post. I was pleasantly surprised that it had the most traffic of any post in a long time considering it totaled about 100 words and contained only one line of prose. Made me happy 🙂

Anyway, onto the real business…

So, it’s Sunday which means I’ve been working on my ROW80 goals for two weeks now. As you may have noticed, I haven’t been attending every check-in, mostly because my work tends to be sporadic and so I post an update after my most productive part of the week but as I haven’t posted an update for a week and a half I have a decent amount of progress to report which is exciting. 🙂

Edit Queen of Hearts

I received the edits from my betas and have been going through and applying their suggestions to the first seven chapters. I’m still not totally happy with these yet and I’ve uncovered a few annoying plot holes that I need to work out but in terms of progress, I’m happy.

I also bought a self-edit book which I intend to write a review of eventually and which I’m hoping will help me with my edits. The best part about the betas is that they’ve pinpointed some things I need to work on that I was having trouble pick up myself.


Not anything actually done on this front but I’ve come up with a few ideas and written down about 200 words worth of random unconnected quotes. I’ve also started looking at NaNoWriMo ideas. A little early, I know, but I want to be properly prepared this time around.


This post + Wednesday’s post = 2

2 blog posts = success 🙂


I designed a basic script but apart from that its on standby at the moment. I have an exam for Ancient Greek on Monday and I’m confused enough about it already without mixing in my own language at the same time. That said, the topic is always at the back of my mind and I look forward to returning to it.

    Wooo so much success! 😀

    Ancient Greek sounds terrifying. But who knows, you could be the next Dr Itter, working out how to spell English words by writing them in Ancient Greek…

    Filling in plot holes is a pain! I’m doing heavy edits right now, too, and most of mine means either writing something completely different for that chapter or getting rid of it entirely. An interesting process indeed. Great job with our goals! Seems like you’ve got a good pace going. Keep it up!

    Looks like you’ve got some good goals set for yourself. Congratulations on getting your betas’ comments back! And do I read this right, you’re creating a language? With a script? How cool is that! 8-D Way to go!

    I took two years of Homeric Greek (I guess that’s ancient) in high school. I can read the alphabet, and remember the first couple of lines of The Iliad, but that’s about it.

    It’s been a good week for you!
