#ROW80 Round 04 of 2012 – Goals
Hello friends! Tomorrow starts the next round of ROW80.
Don’t know what ROW80 is?
A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life.
We are all different and we all have different demands on our time. Why should we all have the same goal? The simple answer is that we shouldn’t. If you want to be a writer, then you have to be able to roll with the punches and adapt to your changing circumstances. If that means changing your goals when your life blows up, so be it. ROW80 is the challenge that champions the marriage of writing and real life.
And the best part? The friends we make. The support. The sense of belonging to a tight group. Good stuff.
Anyway, I should talk about my goals, right?
My writing/revising/editing schedule is a wreck, so I’ll stick to weekly goals set every Sunday—which is also the day I post my check-ins. So I’ll state here the goals for this week, and next Sunday I’ll tell you how it went and state the goals for the next week. Okay?
Here it goes. The goals for the first week of ROW80:
- Writing: work on DESTINY GIFT pre-edits. The deadline is Nov 20, but I want to send it to my editor at least a month earlier since I have too much on my plate … also, HHSW next set of edits should drop in at anytime and those need to be work on asap.
- Reading: read book #56 of the year and finish critiquing my CP’s manuscript.
- Social media: I want to spend LESS time on twitter and blogging—so I can get more writing done!
- Exercising: at least 4x.
How about you? Even if you’re not on ROW80, what are your goals for the last three months of the year?
Let the fun begin!
