ROW80 Update – Drowning in papers

It is Sunday today, right? I mean, I’m pretty certain, but I’ve been busy, so if this is next week Thursday I wouldn’t be surprised.

No, it is Sunday after all. I just checked. Well, ok, that means it’s time for another ROW80 Check-In.

ROW80 Round 1, 2015 – List of Goals

This is my second time participating in ROW80. While I didn’t quite manage to achieve all my goals for the last Round, it did get me to be more creative.

I also know what to expect now and how it all works, so without further ado, here’s my List of Goals for the first Round of Words in 2015!

End of ROW80 Success!

Hello my dear fellow ROW80 participants!

The fourth Round of Words in 80 Days for 2014 ended officially on December 26, and while I didn’t stick to all my goals I originally posted, I still count this ROW80 a success!

My writing goals:

  • Write a short story each day. Poems also permitted. No matter what word count.
  • Alternate often between writing in English and German to build up more German stories (it IS my native language, after all)
  • Write in at least 4 genres other than fanfiction (but fanfic is also fine!)

My blogging goals:

  • Update Study. Read. Write. five times per week, even if it’s just a picture with writing prompts or inspiration
  • Update my travel blog Fernweh & Wanderlust at least 3 times a week, even if it’s just a travel-inspiring picture or recipe
  • Start German to English translation of Gap Year journal to include on Fernweh & Wanderlust

So how did I do?

ROW80 – End of November update

I know I have missed the last check-in for ROW80, so here’s my update.

Since I validated my NaNoWriMo win I’ve not written more for that story. I have written a few short stories for ROW80, but I started one that turned out to hit a bit too close to home and it brought back a few memories I’d rather put behind me.

But then again, writing is therapeutic, so I guess it’s good to get it all out.

ROW80 End of Week Update

First of all: I won NaNoWriMo 2014 (yay!)

It’s far from over, and I have too many ideas still flying around in my head. I’ve approached it differently this year and I’m not sure this was better than last year. Then again, I’ve also had more on my plate this year than last.
