Round 3 of ROW 80 is here. The writing challenge that knows you have a life.
The last round went by in a blur for me, I was partially present with spring, the end of the school year for my two older boys, and then of course, life happening. My goals of round 2 were somewhat accomplished – however not completely. And not concretely. Me, I battle with consistentcy. It is my constant goal.
I am so happy to be back and present for Round 3. Summer is in full swing and a few loads have been lifted. And my goals are a continuation of last round but in a different way which excites me. It excites me because they are more specific and more concrete and because of that, more achievable.
1. Lily’s Hope – my paranormal thriller – up to 300 pages by the end of this round. End goal: a completed first draft. That’s about 28 pages a week.
2. Matt/Shay – my mainstream novel – revision of the rough draft up to 300 pages by the end of this round. 28 pages a week. End goal: a newly revised draft (the official first draft).
3. New Orleans Story – my other paranormal thriller – 60 pages a month. 20 pages a week. End goal: a completed first draft
So that leaves me working on 76 pages per week. With my writing times a few hours on scheduled days of which there are four during the week, I hoping to get it done.
Looking forward to getting started and so grateful to ROW 80 for giving me a forum to present my goals before others thus keeping me accountable. :-))
Wishing all you ROW 80ers a great first week!
