Sarcastic Wednesday and #ROW80

I have a Hallmark online subscription. For $9.99 a year, I can send as many e-cards as I want. There are often themes for cards such as Maxine, the screaming Banshee (one of my favorites), and the one my whole family loves — Hoops & Yoyo. If you don’t know who Hoops and Yoyo are, let me introduce you.

Here’s their card for Sarcastic Wednesday:

No brilliant insight to apply here. I just think that every Wednesday should be sarcastic Wednesday.

Here’s how my ROW80 is going:

  • Finish editing Grace & Fire mystery novel and send to reader. Finished January 19.
  • Write 2,500 1,500 words per week on young adult novel, Sharing HunterIt’s Spring Break, so my kids and hubby have been home. I have written one day thus far for 1,013 words. Still, not bad.
  • Blog twice a week on Amaze-ing Words Wednesday and Deep-Fried Friday, and check-in with ROW80 updates twice a week. Posted If Twain Tweeted today.
  • Comment on at least 10 15 blogs per week (not counting ROW80 update comments). Commented 16 times. I doubt I’ll even count the remainder of the week.
  • Read one writing craft book. Finished On Writing by Stephen King. For those asking what I thought of On Writing, I didn’t get as much out of it as others have.
  • Read five eight fiction books. I have read 11 books. Just finished Red by Kait Nolan and really enjoyed it. In fact, Kait’s book is a nominee for the DABWAHA (writing award), YA Category.
  • Exercise three times per week. Walk one mile three times per week. I have not walked this week, but my family did go out yesterday and play a little baseball in preparation for my Going for a Guinness World Record game at the end of March.
  • Read through Writer’s Digest magazine issue. Finished.

Added goals for last week:

How’s your ROW going? How’s your Wednesday? Did you throw a little sarcasm into it?

Be sure to check out my fellow ROW80ers and wish them well HERE.

  1. So glad you’re doing well! Kait’s book is on my list, but between reading a new craft book and studying Lisa Gardner’s books (my new book has a really layered plot), I’m behind in just about everything. Hopefully I get it soon.

    Looking forward to reading your dirty fighting scene!

  2. Considering it was spring break, you rocked it! My kids are home the week before Easter, so I need to kick it into gear the next two weeks knowing I won’t get much done that week.

    RE: On Writing. I didn’t get any technical or specific writing know-how from Stephen King, but I did feel energized to write and believe in my writing. In that way, he inspired me. Plus, I’ve never read King and I found the book entertaining and witty. A good read, but I’m not sure it was necessarily a “craft” book. I have Plot and Structure at the top of my TBR pile right now.

    Good luck wrapping up Round 1! See you in Round 2. I noticed you are sponsoring again. Yahoo!

    1. Thanks, Tia! I agree with your summation of On Writing, except that I found it a bit less entertaining and witty. :p Hope you enjoy Plot & Structure! See you in Round 2, girlfriend!

  3. Woah! You are doing great with all those goals you got for yourself! Hoops and YoYo are fantastic–my nephew loves them too and I always send him cards with those two in them. We both just crack up! Hope the rest of your week goes well!
