The year is almost halfway through (though in some ways, it feels like way longer), and we’re just one week away from the end of Round 2. How are those goals coming along? Let us know in the comments or in the Facebook group!
First of all, thanks to all of you who chimed in during the Facebook Group discussion about A Round of Words in 80 Days. Shan and I are dedicated to making sure this group serves as many writers as possible. To do that, we want to keep up with the changing ways technology is a part of our daily lives.
After much discussion, we’re moving away from blogging as our primary update tool. So, starting in Round 3, if the whole biweekly check-in post thing was overwhelming for you, never fear: you’ll be able to join us on Facebook or Discord for your check-ins (details pending).
We’re also toying with the possibility of doing monthly themed writing chats via Zoom or a similar platform, and hosting weekly writing sprints as well. Stay tuned!
Thanks for being part of the ROW80 community! I’ll be continuing these posts through the end of Round 2, on June 25! So, as always, share your posts and updates below!
Whenever I tell people I’m a full-time writer, I often get the response, “Oh, I wouldn’t be able to do that. I’d get distracted and play with the cat.”
Well, there is some of that. I do spend a fair amount of time playing with the cat, staring into an open refrigerator, or delighting in the antics of the neighborhood squirrels. But in between that? There’s writing!
What about you? What response do you get when you tell people you’re a writer? (Full-time or part-time or whenever you can find the time–doesn’t matter!)
Also, we’ve got a few more weeks of Round 2. How are those goals coming along? Share away!
Round 2 ends on June 25. How are your goals coming along? I hope you’re making plenty of progress! I started the Round slowly, feeling a bit stuck, but as the sunshine emerges and the days grow longer, a bit more creative energy is buzzing. I hope it’s the same for you!
Share your updates below or in the Facebook group–and don’t forget to share the love!
Another Sunday, another ROW80 check-in! As we soar toward the long days of summer and the merry month of June, I hope your second round is going well. Post your updates in the comments below or on Facebook!
