Round 3 Week 3 Sunday

As we drift beyond our Threes, let us pause to take in the scenery, the beauty of the day… and the words it may inspire. There are whole worlds to explore, just beyond those trees!  So let’s write, let’s create…  and let’s share our progress (or lack thereof) with our fellow ROWers so we can encourage each other to greater discoveries.

As always, here is your linky. Let us know how you’re doing: here, in the comments or at the linky, or at our Facebook page.


Round 3 Week 3 Wednesday Cheers

Today might be as close to Shan’s favorite ROW80 day possible.  She likes 3s and with today having two of them…  well, that’s pretty awesome.  Come to think of it…  Shan’s pretty awesome herself.  She’s been a ROW80 sponsor for a few years now.  She actively maintains our Facebook page.  And she’s got some great sponsor posts under her belt.

So why not stop by her page and cheer her along on her writing journey.

And when you’re done there…  stop off at our linky and post your progress.

Round 3 Week 1 Sunday

The Blank Page

I thought I has something witty to say, something that might cheer you all on and help you finish this first week of Round 3 off with joy and enthusiasm for the future.

It’s gone now.  Those fleeting thoughts of perceived genius….

Ah, well.  Ideas come and go, and then someday, they come again.  Good practices, writing regularly, tracking one’s goals…  those things will be there to ensure the next great idea doesn’t get a chance to wander off before it makes it to your page.

Until then, there’s the linky.  You can check-in here via the comments or the linky, or you can jump on over to our Facebook page to post things there.

Round 3 Wed-no, Friday Check-in

Well…  this hasn’t been my finest hour as the ROW80 blog-maven.  Sorry, everyone.  I completely lost track of the last few days (there’s been a lot of sheet-rock and plastering going on at my house, and most of my time has been spent chasing dust with a mop and washing).  I sincerely hope your Round of Words has started more smoothly.

That said, I do have a linky for you, if you haven’t already checked in at our Facebook page where Shan has been much more on the ball than me.  Whichever place you choose may your spirits be eager and renewed….  see you Sunday!

Round 2 End of Round Post

Here it is, folks! The moment you have been waiting for…

…well, sort of. Officially, our Round of Words ends tomorrow.  But… since we’re creatures of habit here at the ROW80 (favorite pens, favorite coffee shops, favorite songs…), I figured let’s keep to our Sunday/Wednesday check-in schedule and post the E-o-R today.

You can check-in on Thursday if you’d like.  🙂

For those who are fairly new to the ROW80 and want to know what happens next…  here’s the plan.

  • a ten day “pause” from checking in
  • you post you goals for the upcoming round of words (Goals Posts go live on Mondays mid-break)
  • check-in mid-break if you’d like….  comments will be open for check-ins as will be the FB page (huge thanks to Shan for maintaining that)
  • Round 3 will start on Monday, July 2

That’s all there is to it.

Sounds fun?  Time to start plotting those goals then.

And time to check in…

Round 2 Week 11 Sunday

With five more days to go of Round 2, this seems a perfect opportunity for us all to look ahead toward the upcoming Round 3.  And to look behind as well… We started Round 2 off with a bang, with great plans for what we were going to achieve (see them here). Some of us got a bit side-tracked, but we’ve all kept plugging away, doing the best that we can as we ROWed along, writing words, editing, rewriting, sharing, marketing, then writing and more all over again.

In a bit over a week from now (one day later, to be exact), I’ll be posting the new Goals Post linky for Round 3.  Take this time then to look over what you’ve done and consider what you want to do.

You’ve got it in you to do better than before.

Here is today’s linky. You know the drill:
