Sunday has rolled around again (are these Sunday’s getting closer together or is it just me?) which means it’s time for a ROW80 update.
Goal 2: once goal #1 is achieved switch to editing mode on
the apocalyptic YA novel, The Utopians, aiming to edit ~ 5 pages half a chapter a day.
I had a great week this week, finally getting into the editing rhythm and completing a chapter almost every day. I’m now up to the start of Chapter 13 which means if I can manage to complete 5-6 chapters a week I will be done in less than 3 weeks.
Goal 3: keep up with my aim to read 50 books this year.
This week I read Matthew Reilly’s new 3 part novella Troll Mountain. Now I’m a huge Matthew Reilly fan (I own every one of his books and even managed to meet him last year at a conference) but I have to say I was disappointed with this story. It was advertised as a family-friendly story, but perhaps should have been more explicitly sold as a Middle Grade novel. It was a quick read, full of action as always, but it just felt a little derivative.
Have you had a good week? Hitting those goals? I hope so 🙂
As always I love hearing from you.
