Round 4 Check-in 4

When Delays Happen…

This Round of Words is all about finding a way to keep going even when things are in flux and myriad commitments (and surprises) take our time.  The fact that this (and the last) post were somewhat late is an example of that.

We keep going, and we get the job done, even though the deadline in passed.  And though there are reasons, we don’t dwell on them.  We just keep plugging away and get something done.

I hope your writing, your editing and marketing—even your ROW80 fitness goals—are all moving along steadily.  But even if they aren’t…  do what you can today and tomorrow.

You’ll get there.

And as always, tell us at the linky:

Round 4 Check-in 3

You all have probably heard the saying “Time flies like an arrow” and its humorous second half “fruit flies like a banana.”  Well, we know how crazy life can get, allowing deadlines to whirl past us at breathtaking speeds.  Heck, I’m writing this post late because I just got caught up with other things.

Life happens.

But Life shouldn’t stop us from writing—not if we’re determined to write, and we love our craft.  Still, it can be hard to find the right words  and sort through the multitude of possible ideas out there into a literary sense.  So we’re offering something new here at the ROW80…  a bi-monthly flash fiction prompt, just to grease the cogs a bit, courtesy of our sponsors.

I’ll start with today’s offering:

It’s the party of the Century… last century, and it’s happening in the wax museum.

Feel free to share your offerings with your check-ins or if you’re shy, keep them to yourself (we hope you share).  Here’s the linky:

Oh, and, if you’re looking for some history on the phrase “Time flies”, here’s a fun Wikipedia entry.

Last Round 2 Wednesday Check-in

Officially, the Round ends on Thursday, but that’s mostly because we have to give a few days for everyone to tally their progress (even if I’ve commented on the arrival of the end of the round for weeks now, I’m sure I’m not the only procrastinator here who hasn’t done a solid run-through of their accomplishments).

Truth be told…  there’s a lot to be said for any progress is good progress.  We have a lot more to do as writers these days, a lot more hats to juggle and a lot more “bosses” (or at least audience members) to answer too.  But, hey…  Let’s go for broke; let’s aim for a solid 99 and 44/100 % success.  Ivory Soap success…

Yeah.

You can do it.

BTW, a cool thing about Ivory soap?  It’s easy to carve.  You can make a lot of things out of it.

Kind of like the progress you are making on all these goals you’re setting.

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)!

Sunday Check-in Week 10

I have nothing inspirational for you today.  Right now, I am lying on my couch trying to set this up on my tablet with my foot elevated and running a fever (after the medicine),  Wish I knew exactly what I did, but….  nope, not a clue.

Since we are now in week 10, it is time to think of goals and plans for next round.  For now let’s just share our progress,
