I have just discovered an excellent writing challenge that may be just what I need. If you haven't heard of it before, A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) takes place four times a year. You set yourself measurable goals for the next 80 days and check-in at least once a week to let everyone know how you are getting on (I will be checking in on Sundays). The current round started on 1st July so I am a little late to the party but the website does say that you can jump in at any time.
So, here are my goals for this round:
- Take part in Camp NaNo during July. I am being a rebel camper though and instead of working on a novel I want to write at least 20 pieces of flash fiction.
- I will spend Aug editing the pieces I have written and either submitting them to magazines or putting together my own collection.
- Read and review 11 books.
- On top of this, by the end of the 80 days I will have either worked through the kinks in my WIP and be progressing with that, or I will finally lay it rest and start work on another novel.
Are any of you taking part in ROW80? Have you taken part before? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you.
