ROW80 Round 2 Check In #1

Like last round, my goal will be 500 words a night. I know some nights I'll go over and occasionally I'll take a night off. Technically, I have over 1500 words started on Eaters:Destination with my notes and writing last night, so I guess I've got a good start. I'll be working a little more on character development in this one, since I think that was a weak spot before. I had sacrificed a little in that area for the sake of constant action, and I know that it's possible to have stronger characters reacting to the ever present dangers.

As soon as I get a copy of Eaters: Dark Journey back from one of my beta readers, I'll be posting an excerpt here.


  1. My goal is 500 words a night, too, but as an average. Like I could write 250 words one night and 750 another night, etc. I keep a running spreadsheet to document my progress. It shows my goal and also where I am each day. (I'm kind of a spreadsheet geek, lol.)

    Keep up the good work. You're a good writer, and I know this series will be a hit. (I loved the first Eaters.)

  2. Good luck Michelle! Can't wait to read it.

  3. Thank you for the good luck wishes and inspiration! I don't do a spreadsheet, but I have a weekly/monthly planner that I write my word total and sales in each day. It definitely helps to watch the numbers go up, little by little!
