Okay Progress, But Good News #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working.

I’m starting to notice a pattern.  Even with the minimal writing time I set for myself, Mondays to Wednesdays are much harder for me than Thursdays to Sundays.  Seems I always have a bunch of non-writerly things to do and I don’t get to the writing consistently.  I tend to do a lot of blog writing, which cuts into my fiction time and is all the writing I did for this update.  Because of that, my next chapter has been swirling around my head.  Lots of good ideas in there.  I’ll be working on those hopefully tonight.

Now for the good news.

The contract on my current cell recently expired and I decided to upgrade to a smart phone.  It’s a HTC Evo.  Up until now I’ve never had a need for one, but from what I’ve heard, it’ll really help me get things done when I’m not by my computer.  I’m excited and also clueless as to how to use it.  That’ll be tomorrow night’s adventure.  So ROW80 peeps, know any tricks or cool writer apps I could use?

Info Stuff- Follow my ROW80 progress every Wednesday and Sunday and for the month of February, Tuesdays and Thursdays will be devoted to my Love series.  Eight loves that have shaped me into the writer I am.

  1. ooh have fun with the new gadget, my mobile is useless can’t wait to upgrade to something decent. Good luck with the next chapter.

  2. I just recently bought a Droid X and I absolutely love it. But there’s a learning curve. I haven’t even begun to tap the app possibilities. If I would stop downloading useless stuff like the talking cat I might find something USEFUL. LOL

    I hope you find some great apps to make yourself more productive. Let me know if you find anything.

    Unfortunately, I’ve not written in about 4 days. Since my mom’s been in the hospital, I haven’t really touched my laptop. 😦

    • I just activated it and I’ve been playing around with it for a few minutes. So far I found a tweetdeck app. I’ll be exploring some more after dinner and I’ll keep you posted.

      Mom comes first. I read your update and I’m VERY glad she’s doing better. Your laptop will be waiting for you whenever you’re ready to go back to it.

  3. I think a lot of us are figuring out that some days won’t work for us at all.

    Enjoy your new toy, prepare for the time wasting potential. 🙂

  4. Yeah for upgrades and technology. I’m close to breaking down and getting a droid. However, I know the learning curve will be a bugger. Good luck with your next chapter.

    My post is finally up!
