Round 1

Sunday Check-in Week 8

It's perpetualIt’s perpetual.

As you can see, things are still in that odd development stage that happens when power transitions from one person to another. Last Wednesday, I forgot to clean the linky pool and people were able to see their old posts. Today, I forgot the date and didn’t post for you all to check in until Shan Jeniah messaged me.

Like this blog, I too am a Work In Progress. I think I rather like it that way, even if it does mean some snags along the way.

Still, feel free to add your links to the linky:


Sunday Check-in Week 7


Sometimes you need more than just a desire to achieve…  which is exactly why Kait Nolan created the ROW80 a few years ago.   The steps work, but #4 requires one extra bit…  the sharing of progress.  Because how can we support each other if we don’t know where we’re at in our various journeys?

So, here it is again, another check-in, a chance to give and get support from your fellow ROW80 members.  Even if you’ve been behind for a while, a lax member whose been afraid to check-in because saying “no real progress” over and over again feels self-defeating…  stop in, check in, and begin again.  Today is a brand new day to build your dreams.

Wednesday Check-in Week 6

The days and weeks are flying by as if being chased by the storms of…  well, if you’re in northeastern America, the Storms of Winter are drastic enough.  There’s a good 18 inches of snow on my deck table today, and we have more snow coming tomorrow according to the weatherpeeps.  Sounds like a good time to snuggle in with a cuppa and some words.  And speaking of words…  how are yours coming along?

Let us know at the froggie:

Sunday Check-In Week 6

Annnd… another week down. The End of Round 1 is getting closer and closer, and that means it’s time to start thinking about new goals and about calmly assessing how we’re doing so far. It’s also time to check-in with our fellow ROWers for support, encouragement and for the fun of it. As usual, you have a few ways to share your progress:

No matter how you reach out, you’ll find friendly, supportive writers out there.  There will be none of this…  mostly.  😀

Wednesday Check-in Week 5

We’re nearing the halfway point! How is everyone doing? Making clear strides toward your goals? Feeling like you could use a little extra nudge forward? Just ambling along?

No matter where you’re at, here’s the place to tell us all about it. Just add your link to the little froggie.

And while we’re at it, a small survey of sorts (leave comments below). Is there anything I could add to the website that you feel would be a help to our writing community? Would you like a page listing writing resources? Writing-related blog hops? Inspirational posts of the kind we used to run here (I do have something in the works for that coming)….

Please, let me know. This is your ROW80 too.

Sunday Check-in Week 5

Can you all believe that we’re already into Week 5 of this Round of Words? The New Year has been flying past us, with elections and stories… and general life distractions! I can’t speak for you all, but I know the wild world outside has put the crimp on my wordcount. But that’s what we’re here for: to support and cheer each other.
