This week has been so busy with attending softball and little league games for my niece and nephew that by Friday I was exhausted. But the one activity of my niece's that had stuck with me throughout the week was her chorus concert Monday. She is in the 7th grade and auditioned at the beginning of the year for chorale, which is a select few of the chorus members from 6-9th grade. Each group sang a set of songs and then her group, along with the 9-12th grade groups, combined for the final song. As the first few notes played I couldn't help but grin. I hadnt't heard this song in literally years but that didn't stop me from tapping my foot and humming along (okay, and singing quietly..but I couldn't help it! I still remembered all the words!). When it originally came out I was about 5 (or therebouts) and I can remember singing it in my mom's car: an old beige colored Nova that had a rusted out floor in the front passenger seat. Funny how certain songs bring back memories! (It also made me think of the Scrubs episode where JD is in the bath with the mango cocoa butter.) Incidentally I can't get this song out of my head and I've found myself singing it all week! So if you're looking for some infectious early 80s music, here is your fix. (I linked the music video, and part of the Scrubs episode from vevo-cause well that show just rocks!):
Africa by Toto:
And now back to our regularly scheduled program....My ROW80 progress:
Writing: Knocked out of the park! This week I worked on writing the scenes I added in the beginning to flesh out the characters and story a bit more. This week the plan is to keep writing every day and updating my character list.
Reading: Two books down for the week! I am still going to keep my goal of one book a week, but...since I have fallen way behind on my goodreads challenge I actually need to read 2-3 books a week to make it by December. Good thing I have a long TBR list and a lot of books on my Nook! (And my birthday is Tuesday so yay for more Barnes and Noble gift cards!)
Blogging: I posted Monday (about when our characters have minds of their own) and Tuesday (about one of my favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin). I didn't hit a post every day, but I am happy with what I accomplished.
Being Active: 4 out of 5 for the week. Not perfect, but still I like where things are heading.
Of all the progress the writing is what I am most excited about. I am on target to finish this WiP by July 1st which is both terrifying and exciting. I just need to keep writing! I hope everyone has a great weekend and good luck this week on the ROW80 goals!
