My goals for ROW80 are:
- read a book a fortnight – I should have finished The Last of the Amazons by now but I haven’t. It’s not half as engaging as it could be.
- blog about something other than WIPpet/ROW80 – done: the first in my series on character interviews; a post outlining my current blogging schedule which I’ve so far kept to.
- practice Swedish/French/Spanish/Russian – practicing Swedish through duolingo and I’ve been watching the latest season of Broen (The Bridge). It’s made me realise how terrible my pronunciation is!
- edit Queen of Hearts – making solid and steady progress on this. I think I can have finished the first section (about 2/3 of the book) by the mid Feb.
- write something, anything – writing new scenes for Queen of Hearts and the fictionalised interview with Maisha which was quite fun to write. Apart from that, the only writing I’ve been doing has been job applications.
By next week I hope to have:
- finished editing Chapters 8 & 9
- read a book (may or may not end up being The Last of the Amazons)
- practice a language every day
- prep my interview with my next character 🙂 You can help me choose which character to speak with!

So who will it be??
