Round 2 – 1st Sunday Check-in

The Blank Page

Can you believe we’ve already made it through one 80 day Round of Words and are hot into a second? That’s a lot of words, a lot of writing, and a lot of commitment (and a lot of alliteration!). But perhaps things aren’t going as well for you as you’d like… Maybe it’s that blank page in front of you. You know the one I’m talking about, the one without distractions that you are sure will keep you from your writing if you ‘give in’ to the temptation…

Well, far be it from me to say you should do things my way, but maybe what you need is to step away from the page for a moment and indulge your muse a little.  Let me invite you to spend a moment with me in the ROW80 archives—way, way back to the very first Round of Words our founder Kait Nolan held—and two posts by our original sponsors:

  • a quote from: Problem Solving, Inc.  by Andrew Mocete
  • Staring at that blank page or ugly looking chapter may seem unproductive, but it’s telling your brain what you’re doing is a priority.   It’ll get the message and help you reach your goals.

  • a quote from: Productive Procrastination by Stacy Wallace Benefiel
  • No matter what your writing style is-whether you plot, procrastinate, write 12,000 words a weekend and nothing during the week, we are all taking on the commitment to write something every day for three months.

Remember that this is a journey, not a destination. It’s not how you get there, just that you do. And hopefully you’ll have a little fun while you’re at it.
