Row80 Check-In: Adrenaline Rush

This is how I felt most of the week.

But it was a good feeling! After a late start, I ended up with just over 10,000 words. It’s been a tremendous help to have the scene by scene outline, and of course, the Row80 Sprints are great motivation.

I also had an epiphany about a series I’m planning to work on after the current WIP, and the adrenaline rush that came with it was exhilarating. It’s going to be an intense plot, and I’ve come up with a killer way to introduce the whole concept. I’m very excited and can’t wait to start writing. I’ve already done some brainstorming, but I’ve got to keep the current WIP as my main focus.

I’ll be going back to child care part time next, and Grace also gets her cast off on Tuesday – yay! Hopefully I’ll be able to stick to my 1600 words per day goal.

Some of my favorite posts this week:

Lisa Hall-Wilson: The Details Make The Story.

K.B. Owen: The Chocolate Diet. Heaven it is.

Make A Difference: An Interview With Melissa Foster.

How was your week? Are the Row80 sprints helping you? Have you tried one?

    10,000 words! Holy cow Stacy! That’s fantastic! I have to start whipping myself to get my writing doneeach week. Good for you and your new idea sounds exciting!

    • Stacy Green says:

      Thank you! I’ve got so much going on this week there’s no way I’ll match that, especially since I’m leaving town Thursday. But hopefully I’ll do it justice.

    Way to go – 10,000 words is AWESOME! No, YOU’RE AWESOME! 🙂 I love a week with that extra oomph, because even if you don’t hit it again for weeks, you can’t be behind. And you got to spend that extra time on that great creative boost. I’m sure that you’ll be able to carve out a good amount of writing time once you get your new schedule all figured out. I know I’ve been working on that one myself. Keep up the great work Stacy! 🙂

    • Stacy Green says:

      Thank you. I’m pretty happy about it, and it will help make up for the crazy coming this week. The creative boost was a real help and made me feel like a real writer, if that makes any sense. Good luck this week, and thanks for stopping by!

    10k is fabulous, Stacy! Awesome on the new idea as well – they can be a total energy rush when they come. All the best for the coming week 🙂

    • Stacy Green says:

      Thank you! I thought of you this week when I went over 7K, lol. The idea was an energy rush. It’s really complex and will take a lot of fleshing out/plotting, but I’m excited.

  6. WOW Stacy, you’re moving right along. Excellent work.

  7. Jo-Ann Carson says:

    Love the cat pose. It’s been one of those weeks,heh!
    oh…and congrats for writing all those words.

  8. Stacy, 10K is absolutely fab. And aren’t the daily sprints amazing? I was out of the loop for almost 3 weeks, and I’m so glad to be getting started. Also, your new story idea sounds like it is going to be phenomenal. Can’t wait to hear more about it!

    • Stacy Green says:

      Thank you. Yes, the sprints are amazing. It helps me to be held accountable. Yay for getting back into the loop. That’s always stressful. And I’m really excited about the new idea. It’s dark and twisted, lol.

  9. Great word count. 10K! That’s just awesome.

    I haven’t tried the sprints because, alas, they are during the day when I’m at work. 😦

    Love the kitty cat.

  10. KM Huber says:

    Like everyone else, I am in awe of your 10K. Truly, it is inspiring! That kitty picture is so wonderful; what a bright, cheery opening for your blog post. With as much writing as you are accomplishing, I suspect there are a lot of epiphanies in your future writing, which is just tremendous. Hope you have another great week.


    • Stacy Green says:

      Thank you. As I’ve said it won’t happen this week because of time constraints, but the Row80 sprints have been a big help to me. It’s an awesome way to hold yourself accountable and gain support. Thanks so much for your kind words, too!

  11. Woot! Great week, Stacy! I love that you have a ton of great ideas coming in as well. 🙂

  12. Julie Glover says:

    Wow, 1600 words per day. Please crack that whip in my direction as well. I’d LOVE to log a 10,000k week! In fact, my dream is to finish this WIP before a May conference. But alas, we’ll see how it goes. Great week, Stacy! Keep going.

    • Stacy Green says:

      LOL. I’ll do my best. This week is going to be tough, and I’m sure I won’t log that this week. Just keep pushing away and doing the best you can. That’s all we can do:)
