20131215 ROW80 Check-in

A Day Late

In spite of a number of commitments outside the house, I made most of my goals with the exception that posting this status is a day late. I’ll take it!

Image courtesy of Supertrooper at FreeDigitalPhotos.netChristmas is almost here, and I haven’t started. This is typical behavior. To help me get in the mood, parts of my Friday Favorites post concentrated on Christmas-y things like the US Air Force Band Flash Mob at the Smithsonian a few days ago. Their performance was superb. Go see the post; I think you’ll enjoy it.

I also managed to post Searching the Scriptures in Vain – Part II on ChristsReflections.com. Part III is most of the way ready, too.


But best of all, I made my 5,000 word count goal on the WIP by my Saturday deadline.

This is a major step forward for me. I’m keeping a spreadsheet, now, to help me track the real progress toward the finish line for my second book.

Having to post the count every day makes the progress or lack of progress real, and seeing the word count go up feels so good!
