A Round Of Words - Check-in 10

I seem to have finally found my stride. I'm aiming for 100-500 words a day on Shroud Of Death and I'm finally at the point in the story where things start to get really exciting. Bring on the horror.

I've also finally caved in and started a to do list, knowing how much would be on there I was reluctant to set it all down on paper. The full to do list can be viewed by viewing the links at the top of the blog. I will just report completed tasks in my check in posts otherwise my posts will get too long and scrolly-downy.

Being off work on Friday meant I had a mega productive day even though I had to make a lot of behind the scenes changes to the website. It's turning into a constant work in progress.

I spent most of Saturday preparing the email and online version of Dark Metre. I had teething problems particularly as I had to set the whole online version up by scratch. Now the templates done it should be easier to keep updated in the future. After only getting about two hours sleep due to the wind that's been howling about for the last few days I only managed a token effort on my studying but did manage to get some words down on Shroud.

Daily word count for Shroud between 100-500
Wednesday: 102
Thursday: 0
Friday: 505
Saturday: 324

I also managed to fill in one of the worksheets from The Nighttime Novelist for TCI

Sounds like a really good week to me. I'm still a little bit away from the "good stuff" but I'm hoping once I get there I can just write.

The wind has been awful @ mine aswell, one of the windows at work isn't sealed right so it sounds like it's about to be blown out any moment. :S Makes for a great working enviroment.

Sounds like someones scaling the side of the house and trying to get in through the front door. There may be a story in there somewhere

Yay for having such a productive week! The list is a good idea, it's fun to cross things off. Also, I will now begin saying scrolly-downy all the time. :)

Oh, the best thing about To Do lists is crossing stuff off. Look at that beautiful list of completed tasks! See it grow!

Your progress sounds good. Hope you're having fun with it.

Sometimes I think that the "goal" part robs me of the fun....Especially when I'm not meeting my goals. LOL

Here's my ROW 80 UPDATE

I love crossing items of my lists - hate when I do something i had forgotten to put on the list! do I add it even tho' it's done! and cross it of straight away or is that cheating?
well done on your progress
wind bad here also - thought roof was going to come off at one point - scary
