ROW80 – Sunday Update & Song Prompts

Seeing as I only updated late on Thursday, I don’t really have that much to tell you today.

The clocks changed last night, and that’s, usually, when my SAD kicks in properly, so I’ll see how it goes from here on in. I’ve already had my SAD light out for a while, but I find it very hard to concentrate on tasks (and finish them) at this time of year, my energy levels are in the basement and as much as I’d love to write for ROW80 and NaNoWriMo as well as finish several short courses I had signed up for before my university matriculation was decided on and approved, it’s going to be tough.

ROW80 Wednesday Update #1

Well, A Round of Words in 80 Days started on Monday, and today is the first check-in to see how I’m doing on my ROW80 Goals.

So how am I getting along? Rather well.

I have written two short stories of about 500 words each, one is in English and one in German. I will share them once I’ve typed them up, as I’ve written them by hand.

As for the blogging goals, It’s only been two days. I’ll be able to tell on Monday whether I stuck to my weekly target or not.

I’m still looking around for writing prompts and I’m just putting together a plotting kit with character and setting sheets.

I found some lovely templates, made by asmallbirdorganizes, on Etsy, and I will write about them in more detail in another post.

Until now I’ve written down what was on my mind, but I think this exercise might help me develop a story idea that I could potentially take past the short story stage and into the realms of novellas and novels.

 

A Round of Words in 80 Days – My Goals

While this is technically the 4th Round of A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) this year, it is my very first time participating.

I therefore might not have given this as much thought as others surely have, but I’m pretty spontaneous once I’ve switched on my mind’s “Creative” setting, so here goes, I suppose.
