It’s been a while since I participated in ROW80, which is Round of Words in Eighty Days, but I’ve been itching to do it again. I just barely missed the last deadline for ROW80 Round 4 of 2013, not that starting late mattered to the organizers, but it mattered to me. I wanted the full 80 days, the full participation. So, fresh start, new year, round 1 for 2014.
ROW80 involves setting a measurable writing goal(s) and then reporting on it (them) every Wednesday and Sunday for the duration of the eighty days. The first round begins Monday, January 6, 2014 with first progress report on Wednesday, January 8th.
My goals revolve around FINISHING works in progress (I have two adult novels at approximately 70% completion), ADDING new words to works with 10k words or less to them, and REVISING two works for submission (converting one from adult to new adult and editing one based on feedback.) ROW F-A-R! **snicker** Stated more succinctly and quantitatively:
- 1000 words per week on any of the above FIRST DRAFT projects (or until complete)
- 1 chapter per week on either of the REVISION projects.
- 500 words per week FINISHING projects nearing completion.
Now to do it.
The fun begins January 6th! First report is January 8th. 🙂
