Row Row Row ROW80 update
I’m doing this later than I usually am. I went up tonight and went to visit the horses since I hadn’t had a chance last week. The nice thing is that we now have lights in the outside ring so we can ride or drive if we want. I am still getting used to the Daylight savings though. It’s just that much harder to get out of bed when the alarm goes off because it’s still dark out. I don’t know why we do Daylight Savings really because teh farmers get up at 4 in the morning anyway, whether it’s light or dark. Eh, go figure.
Writing – Going pretty steady on my ROW commitment with the short story. Holding with between 300-400 words a day on it so I feel good about it. Granted, I know I’ll be cutting stuff but that is for then, this is now.
NaNo – I’m still going along even though the last two chapters I have not really felt enthused about at all. I know what the problem is. At least one of them is that this is a whole new word for me by using a Steampunk setting and I’m used to panting a lot. With this, using the same setting for different writings, I need to have some constants such as why this happens there or over there. So it takes some plotting. Which I haven’t done. Also, my one character is pretty good with a long rifle and doing distance shots. I’m not really familiar with guns as I”ve never handled one. That’s something that I’m going to have to research and elaborate on after this is all over. And since I’m not familiar with it, I think that’s what is slowing me down right now. Once I move past it, I’ll hopefully be better about the story.
I’ve also gotten into another flash fiction today. I’ve done one at Glitterword every Tuesday now and I found that there is also a Hump Day Flash fiction over at Tracey’s Tavern. Who knows what I might get out of doing those quick flashes.
On a blogging note, does anyone who uses WordPress know how to get a word counter widget to show on the side bar. I looked all over and I must be missing something on how to set it up.
