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. I have, however, signed up at the local library and borrowed C. S. Pacat’s Captive Prince. I’m going to talk she is holding next week, mostly because she is from the same city as me and went to the same uni. So I figured I should read her books beforehand.
- blog about something other than WIPpet/ROW80 – done: the second in my series on character interviews; a post the overuse of sexual abuse as a plot point in fantasy books.
- 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 – actual edits have not been progressing far but I’ve worked out the restructure and outlined each scene.
- write something, anything – writing the fictionalised interview with Itsak.
By next week I hope to have:
- finished editing Chapters 9 & 10
- read a book (Captive Prince)
- practice a language every day
- prep my interview with my next character 🙂 You can help me choose which character to speak with!
- submitted 3 more job applications

So who will it be??
