This is my third ROWnd. I had my ups and downs during ROW80 twice before, so I don’t expect for perfection this time either. I am, however, striving for perfection!
Please check out ROW80 for yourself! Creator, Kait Nolan, offers a flexible, supportive atmosphere for meeting your writing goals. There are sooo many awesome people involved and they make it so much fun! Meet the Sponsors, too. They are the best cheerleaders you could ever hope to have.
I’m checking in for my 1st ROW80 update in ROWnd 1 and I’m so freakin’ excited! *jumping up and down*
Finally. Finally. I’ve got my s&!t together. I’m on track with my goals for the ROW…
- Continue with my 13-month Health Challenge. Read about that Here. My health goal is to walk 30 minutes, 4 days a week. Score! Come join me in getting fit and healthier this year! Tell me in your comment what you need to work on.
- Write on my projects – 4-5 days per week for a weekly total of 2,500 words. I did it! In fact I overdid it! I wrote on 4 days for a total of 3,000 words for the week.
- Streamline my social media and support efforts so that I visit all my blogger friends and ROW80 friends over the course of each week. Tweeting, also, for my friends to help promote their work. I improved a lot on this. I’ve commented on 30 ROW80 blogs this week, on all my LLC writer’s blogs, I joined Women’s Literary Cafe and participated in the “Get more LIKES on Facebook game” where I met and LIKED 125 writers and I’ve already been visited and LIKED by 23 of those wonderful writers! I’ve also commented on most of my other friend’s blogs. I’ve tweeted the blogs I’ve commented on and have been diligent in following new twitter followers sooner than later. I even tweeted stuff that wasn’t promoting my blog and RTed other friends’ tweets. Whew! But it didn’t take me as long as you might think. I’ll tell you how I did it all in a reasonable amount of time on my Friday Life List Club post at Jess Witkin’s place.
It feels so good to have a successful week! All the writing I did was on one of my short stories for my anthology. I’m pretty close to finishing it now. Then on to the next one. I hope to have the collection ready for editing by the end of February.
Anyone interested in Beta reading for me during February? If so, leave me a note in your comment.
If you didn’t have an easy time of it this week, don’t let my good week make you feel badly. This is the 1st really good week I’ve ever had on the ROW. So, if you have a tough week now and then don’t sweat it. I’ll bet you made some good progress. Some progress is better than none at all and next week is bound to be even better. Chin up! Besides I’m your cheerleader, just like you’ve been mine! *shaking pompoms* You can do this!
If you had a great week, like me, !Woohoo! Congratulations! I hope your momentum continues throughout the 80 days!
