Rocky Road - ROW Round 3 Goals


I was so looking forward to this round.  I had a bunch of goal ideas I was really excited about and I was all psyched to take my ROW progress to the next level.  Then life happened.  I have a major project I have to get done in the next couple of months, and as a result, the goals I originally planned have become unrealistic.  I guess that’s what this challenge is all about, though, right?  A writing challenge for people with lives.

So, I’ve reworked and pared down my goals, and I’m not sure I’ve pared them down enough, but I guess I’ll just dive in and see.  

I signed up for CampNaNo this month, so I’m breaking my goals into sections – sort of by month.  Here they are:

July
  • CampNaNo – I set a 15,000 word goal and I’m going to be a rebel and write short stories instead of a novel.  Some might be flash fiction, some will be longer, but I hope to write at least 3 stories, possibly more, depending on length. 
August - September
  • Write 15,000 more words.  On anything – blog posts, short stories, journaling, whatever.
  • Start playing with ideas for NaNoWriMo (probably won’t start working on this until Sept.)
Whole Round
  • Writing Post Round Up blog post on Sundays
  • Check-in for ROW on Wednesdays
  • Visit and comment on at least 5 other ROW participants’ blogs per week
I'm actually feeling much better about things today than I was yesterday, so I'm glad I waited to post.  Let's get some writing done!  Happy Round 3 ROWers!

Yes, that is the great thing about ROW80--it takes into account Life. Good luck with CampNaNo and all your other goals.

I look forward to checking back in with you and seeing your updates. Isn't it nice to know you have people rooting for you!!
