Have you recovered from the Twitter Party yet? Hope you have and that you’re settling into a routine. Let us know how your first week with ROW80 went, and when you’re finished, stop by and leave some encouragement for a few fellow ROWers.
Aaaaand ROW80 now has a group on Facebook courtesy of the lovely Sharon Howard. If you’re into FB, hop over and join us.
Also, sponsor Kerry Meacham told me about something totally marvelous that he and other sponsor Gene Lempp did during Round 3. They became ROWbros. Accountability partners. They held each other to their goals, and pulled no punches when helping each other get back on track when they veered off path or needed to adjust goals. I think this is a FANTASTIC IDEA! While I definitely think everyone should try to make the rounds and leave supportive comments when they can, having one particular pal to help you be accountable is, perhaps, even better. It works with exercise. You’re more likely to actually go to the gym if you know someone is expecting you. Why shouldn’t it work with writing too? Not for everyone, I understand, but I wanted to throw the option out there. So I encourage you, if you’d like a ROWbro or ROWsista, to say so in your check-in post. If you’re a Twitterholic, leave your handle next to it. Facebook person, leave your link for that. The goal here is to find somebody who matches up with your preferred form of social media communication. And hey! Don’t be shy! ASK PEOPLE! I’ll even make badges (gimme a day or two) so you can announce to the world who your ROWbro or ROWsista is. We all know I love badges.

I WANT A ROWbro or ROWsista Linky
Okay this one’s a little bit different from your regular linky. I’ve lengthened the title entry to 140 characters, so you can write up a brief, tweet-style to include what you’re looking for. “@kaitnolan seeking ROWbuddy on twitter w/ writing goals” Or editing goals or whatever. Mainly it seemed like a good way to insert whether your preference is twitter, facebook, email, or some other form of chat. You may want to write up a more specific post if you want to find somebody in your genre, with similar word count goals, or a sprint buddy. And if you’re limited on when you can be online, maybe also enter if you’re a morning person, afternoon person, or evening person. You may find that you naturally hook up with somebody via twitter or whatever, but here’s a formalized list of peeps who are definitely looking.
