Well, here I am checking in for the last time as this Round of Words in 80 Days is ending. I had some progress and then at the end quit doing ROW80 work entirely and instead worked on my summer garden. So it was a mixed bag in terms of meeting my goals.
I did finish one very intricate picture (see image below) and I’m happy with that. I started another, simpler illustration for the book’s interior. And I did a little work on the manuscript itself. So there is work that got done but I’d say only 50% of what I set out to do.
It’s entirely common for my writing work to slow down once I start gardening in the summer. Once everything’s planted and the heat sets in, I’ll have more brain space for work again. The heat has definitely started, but I have a bit more planting to do. Should be finished by the next round.
Baby strawberry plant! There are 20 of them.
I had an itch to pick up some of my fiction again, so I’m thinking about how to design my goals for next round. Thank you all for the regular support you’ve shown me. I wish you all the best. Here is the blog hop link for this final ROW80 Check-in. See you all next round!
