I keep banging on about how I’m working on a new project and trying different approaches to get over the line with my latest novel. One thing I found, and just quite spur-of-the-moment decided to try, is this thing called ROW80, have you heard of it? It’s A Round of Words in 80 Days, a community of bloggers who aim to support each other in achieving personal writing goals. The way it works is, you register, you post updates, and there’s also some rather cool sounding other stuff I have yet to figure out.
Guess what, I’m a bit behind the eight ball getting my goals posted, because it kicked off last week. But apparently that’s okay. And I think I muffed a bit on not getting my update posted before now, but supposedly that’s okay as well. I love the laid-back feel of this challenge, so much more aligned with my own way of doing things than the NaNoWriMo.
So, down to business. Goals. I’ve really only got one goal at the moment, though that may change. I intend to write at least two notebook pages per day, six days a week. I missed one day this week – so far I’m on schedule! And I am on holidays after all ! There are some things I don’t understand about doing this. Like, what the hell is a “blog hop”? What are Linky Tools exactly? And how do I get that cool ROW80 badge on my blog? Come to that, how do I get my own badge?!
So this is it, it’s official. Here I am. Come ye bloggers. And please, someone tell me if I stuffed this up!! And to my usual reading/writing friends, I’ll still be posting normal stuff here too. And if you’re a blogger you might like to check it out too.
