Post Mousetrap Progress

Okay, so I missed Wednesday and couldn't bring myself to write anything, even a day late. Bad writer!
~slaps my own hand~ Anyway, I feel much more refreshed and I even am more on track. Yesterday was mine and the hubs' 8th wedding anniversary. So, I took him out to dinner at Ruby Tuesday's (a rare treat) and then we went to see Kingsman: The Secret Service. I have decided I need more Colin Firth in my life and Samuel L. Jackson was pretty awesome too.

So today I present my renewed progress in Round 1 before the end of the Round actually happens.

This week:
     *Reading: finished Anansi Boys (Neil Gaiman). Really good. Didn't know where it was going, but quite the engaging story. Have been consistently please with Neil's works thus far. I will be beginning Good Omens (T. Pratchett and N. Gaiman). Also, will be working on And Then There Were None (Agatha Christie).
     *Writing: wrote a piece of flash fiction for #writestuff monthly challenge. It's about making a choice of two equally bad choices. Read it To Choose. TOTAL WORD COUNT: 1946.
     *Editing: edited the above mentioned story.
     *Other Stuffs: cleaning the house this afternoon, laundry, garbage, and maybe vacuuming later.

This (upcoming) week:
     *Reading: read Good Omens and And Then There Were None.
     *Blogging: begin truly blogging 1 a week. Including my ROW80 check-in to make a thrice weekly blogging.
     Writing: write daily. Pen (or type) 250 words daily.
     *Editing: resume The Real Road Trip revision #1.
     *Submission: 1 new a week.

Mousetrap is done and put to bed. I was sad this week because of that, but now I have 24 Hour Theatre going up April 11th. April is full of trips and new projects. I have two new theatre projects, Stage Managing Aesop's Foibles for LCP and acting/singing in KLP's Zombie Prom. I also am doing the Blogging from A to Z challenge. Am a bit excited and am thinking of doing some pre-planning/writing this year, as last year I struggled with the some of the letters. Note: I think I am also going to start writing a list of blog ideas that will be constantly updated as the ideas are used.

How are you shaping up for this Round, Dear Reader (if you are doing ROW80)? What are you up to now that Spring has sprung (well mostly sprung)?

A Round of Words in 80 Days is a challenge that lets you set goals and help you to hold yourself accountable by reporting your progress with fellow bloggers/writers. Come in and visit the Blog Hop!!

Music for Today: I love these two and the video is just neat. Not sure how they did it. Probably green screened somethings out


  1. You will just love Good Omens. I laughed my way through it. It's a treat.

    I'm sorry to hear that Mousetrap has left you a little sad, but I hope the legacy of Mousetrap brings you joy in the future.

    Keep powering on!

    1. So, I am over 300 pages and loving Good Omens, but then again I have not be displeased by Neil's work. It's my first Terry Pratchett book though.


  2. Congrats on finishing the production of Mousetrap. I hope it went well. I haven't read Good Omens yet, but it's sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read. I'll have to read it soon.

    ROW80 progress is going well. I've finished one novella this round and am hoping to finish a novelette-length work this week, so I'd say that's good progress.

    Good luck with your writing, theatrical, and blogging adventures!

    1. Excellent to hear. I do like hear about your progress. w00t for progress!!

      Mousetrap is good, blogging and theatrical adventures always happening.

  3. Making the list of the topics is a good idea. Thanks for sharing, I am totally going to do that. Sorry that you are missing Mousetrap. I think it is the same way with the ending of every production.

    I am still working on my topics for each letter and haven't even considered my goals for the next round of ROW80. Good luck from a ROW80 blog hopping friend.

  4. Sounds like you've been really busy! Congrats on your wedding anniversary. What a great choice of movie! I loved Kingsman. Colin Firth was perfect for that role. Good Omens is great fun, you'll love it! Have a happy, productive week!
