Given these past two weeks, I have to confess, I don’t know what to say for this WIPpet Wednesday/ROW80 check-in post. I mean, I guess I have something to post since I did “some” writing this week (and being the 1st, I don’t need to post much), but it’s been a very distracting week.
I even missed my Sunday check-in at The Garden of Delights. I was out a computer due to a stress-induced click when lag and bother (and being overtired) got to me and I welcomed in some nasty ransomware. Though it did mess up my old computer some, I was lucky that most of my personal files (I did lose one picture) were not corrupted.
So… I have a new (old) computer now. Actually, I’ve had it since August but had been too busy to clear off the desk and set it up. Nothing like being inspired… 😦
So that, plus the huge distraction of plotting travel routes and hotels for the upcoming trip to England… not to mention all the wild crazies in the world of politics and some Boodle-things with his school, meant I got very little done on my ROW80 goals. I don’t even need to use the checklist. We can leave it as… Try Again Next Week.
And for the WIPpet… an easy one, after all. When I am distracted, I write in my Unnamed Story and just blather into the page. Here’s one paragraph, with minor edits for readability from that WIP. It follows just a few paragraphs down from last week’s entry.
Alanii gave the man a cocked brow. “It will hardly damage her reputation among us. We know why she made the offer. It will help her status among the other Houses, since she’ll finally be acting both as a dutiful wife and in a manner that they see befitting a priestess—.”
Just a short one today. If you’re interested in participating in either the ROW80 or the WIPpet, head over to our linkies and join in: the ROW80 and the WIPpet. And thank you all for continuing to make these challenges fun.
