Soaring High and Goal Updates

Since Sunday I've been staying busy and productive, even though I haven't felt great. It's not a cold, or at least hasn't turned into anything, it's just this underlying sort of blahness. Maybe it's weather related. After a nice weekend, the rain is back in full force. Very gray.

Moving on to the goal updates for ROW80

My goals for the week are:
1)Edit 8 pages per day - so far so good :)
2)Write for minimum of 30 minutes per day - so far I'm at 7k
3)Write 1 new blog articles - hoping tomorrow I'll get to this
4)Stop by fellow author blogs - did and will visit more over the next days
5)Edit book review for The Falling Machine - DONE
6)Exercise 20 minutes minimum each day - I worked out Monday, but haven't felt very good so I didn't make this a priority. Hopeful for tomorrow
7)Read Dead Iron - Was able to devour 3 chapters - I want more!
8)Get plenty of sleep - I did okay here the past couple nights

I also outlined a story concept, tweaked a short story, and organized my office, which was in sad shape. So - all things are going well. Yay progress :)

And I'm going to leave you with a couple cool steampunk related things:

Check out this insanely amazing USB typewriter for tablets

And then hello - I wish I lived in the area because I'd totally go to this:
'Musical Machines and Living Dolls' puts 150 'automata' on display at the Morris Museum. Some of the incredible items you'll see there includes moving figurines, music boxes, barrel organs, calliopes and mechanical pianos.

Did I mention that I'd love to go? Where's a dirigible when you need one?!

Okay, that's all for now, and I'll see you back here Sunday!

Wishing all my friends and followers a productive week. I'll be cheering you on!



  1. Okay, I have to say the typewriter is just plain awesome. Great job on your goals BTW ;)

  2. That is a great typewriter! Well done on all your progress and sorry you haven't been feeling great. Hate that limbo between feeling well and being ill enough to stay in bed! Hope you feel better and keep up the good work!

  3. Thanks Ryan! I know - I so want one. I love the amazing things that people create. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Thanks so much Em. The weird blahness has finally left and allowed me a really great and healthy day. Hoping that becomes the trend ;) lol. Always a pleasure to have you stop by!
