Goals

Round 2 4th Wednesday Check-in

Getting to that mid-point…  just one more week.  It might be a good time to start thinking about how your goals are working for you.  Some of you are just finishing up your CampNaNo counts or the A-to-Z blogging challenges.  Some of you are just plugging along, doing a bit every day to keep the words flowing.

Whatever you do, may it bring you joy.  And then you can tell us all about it at the linky.  😉

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.

Rocky Wednesday Check-in

Well, there you go…  off to a rocky start already!

Hopefully the few hours delay won’t cause you all a lot of problems, but at least, the post is here now, right?

As always, post your progress at the linky and check-in with your fellow ROWers.  Let’s make this a great ROWnd (hiccups not included)!

And So It Begins…

I didn’t post yesterday (though I probably should have scheduled this for last night) because, as always, our new Round of Words starts on Monday, not on a Sunday.  We are now officially into Round 2, and our first check-ins (official…  I know some people have posted check-ins anyway) will be Wednesday.

If you haven’t set our your goals for this coming round, there is still time to post them at the linky at the bottom of our goals post.

Until Wednesday then…  write well.Oh, and as a quick “Thank you” (and if you’re interested in more challenges) check out Lindsay Lovin’ Life who kindly added the ROW80 into her list of 17 Blog Challenges to Try in 2017.
