ROW80 Wednesday 5/11 Report

William misbehaving

Write 500 words / day on Molly: …………..

Exercise 30 minutes / day: 1/3

Go to bed by 11:00 p.m.: 0


1. I was away from Molly too long. The words are coming slowly, slowly, and they are dull, dull, dull. Of course, all words are dull until the flow begins, and flow doesn’t begin until the words–dull words–are on the page.  And then revision takes care of the rest. The trick is to remember the process and put up with the seasickness until the rocking motion subsides.

2. Monday I waited all day–or enough of it–for the appliance repairman.

Yesterday it rained. But today I did what I said I would, sort of. After looking over the Zero to 700 program, I decided the program I needed was more like Zero to 2. No sense in pushing things too quickly.

3. Tonight, definitely. Zero to 2 helped with the decision.

Like the cats, the photos have minds of their own. Someday, perhaps, they’ll stay where I placed them.

  1. Oh, I love the cats! :0)

    What is the Zero to 700 program? Is this something that will help you progress with your writing? I say, anything that helps is good! Keep up the good work!


    1. Zero to 700 is a program for working up to swimming 700 yards, with the goal of working up to a mile (1650 yards). I expect it to help my writing by improving my physical and mental well-being. Increased blood flow to the brain couldn’t hurt. 🙂

      The cats say thank you. They love themselves, too.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. Good luck with your writing.
