Hello gentle reader,
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may recall a time when I took part in the ROW80 Challenge. From April 2012 to June 2013, I checked in every Sunday and reported on my writing progress. Then revisions for LILY IN THE SHADOWS took over my life, then I signed with my agent, and… I gave up on ROW80 check-ins.
But I’m back!
If you’re new around here, A Round of Words in 80 Days (aka ROW80) was created by Kait Nolan. It is “the writing challenge that knows you have a life”. Each ROW80 round runs for 80 days and the participating writers have to set themselves writing goals for that time. Each Wednesday and Sunday, we check in and let the others know how we are doing. The idea is to form writing habits that writers will hopefully continue once the challenge is over.
Round Two started on Monday 7th April (so I jump in a little late) and it will end on Thursday 26th June. If you would like to join in and become a part of the ROW80 community, please do so, it’s not too late and we’re friendly!
Here are my goals for this round (I always keep them very simple):
- Read or write every day
- Write the first draft of my new YA Historical Fantasy (hopefully by the end of this round I’ll be able to tell you what it’s about!)
Here is the Linky for the other check-in posts. How are you other ROW80 writers doing?
Eeeep!! New Historical Fantasy?! EXCITE. So glad to see you back at it.
Sounds like good goals 🙂
so glad to see you back!! Good luck with your goals. Sometimes it’s good to keep them simple. Which is something I fail miserably at.
I’m happy to be back!! Good luck with your goals as well and see you during our sprints!
Welcome back! All the best for Round 2. There is something great about keeping your goals simple. I, however, ramble on and on. 🙂
Thanks! Yes, I find that if I don’t keep my goals to a small number I don’t achieve anything. Have a great round!
Ooh, YA Historical Fantasy sounds fun! You have piqued my interest. 🙂 Congrats on the agent and all the great writing. Have a terrific round!
Hi Julie! It’s good to be back 🙂 Have a great round as well!
