Good day all my ROW80 friends! I hope everyone is having a great April so far… I will be happy when April 17th comes and goes because that means tax season will be over and I can resume life as normal.
I am staying steady with my goals.
A – Z Challenge
I am in on the A – Z Challenge which is a lot of fun writing and reading the other interesting ideas people come up with in terms of Alphabet Posts.
I am in on Script Frenzy which is nerve-racking, but I hate losing or admitting failure, so I am keeping with it. The nerve-racking part was formatting the script, but I have since decided to just write the darn thing and work on the formatting later.
Bound and Broken Editing
I am about half way through. I changed up a few things and will be looking to find some beta readers in a month or so. Bound and Broken is a Crime Drama. So if that be your thang, hit me up, yo.
So I was writing on 75owords today and I was like, *ding* I can use 750 words to write up some of my A – Z posts as a rough draft!
I have to say.. I stopped The Walking Dead posts until the new season rolls around. There just isn’t much to talk about until then. I skipped a Talk About It Tuesday last week because I have so much other stuff going on. Like I said, April is just hectic with out all the writing. In light of recent events (and my lack of meetings recently), I am thinking of doing a sort of AA/NA post a week. I have to map it out first.
Rowing along at such a slow pace, you might think that I was snail powered. I am getting things done, just not at a pace I feel comfortable. I am editing my WIP at a painstaking rate. I am keeping up with all of my blog posts (love the scheduler). I am reading/commenting blogs. Many blog writers are using time-saving, free article writing services to help with their blog. Thanks to some very helpful advice, I learned a way to read/comment a decent amount and then be done with it. I picked 10 – 15 blogs a day to read/comment. I always make sure I fall within that range. Sometimes if I am caught up on stuff, I allow myself to go over.
Modified goals for the week are as follows:
- continue reading/commenting 10 – 15 blogs a day.
- continue to write up scheduled blog posts.
- thirty minutes a day on Triberr.
- figure out how to drive traffic to music/motorcycle blog.
- edit WIP – 15 pages a day.
- get back into the gym at least four days a week.
- Use Penzu for private journaling.
- Use 750words.com for brainstorming ideas.
There you have it folks! the long-awaited, highly anticipated ROW80 goal list of yours truly. Alright, I am exaggerating (grossly). One thing I did start doing more of this week is picking up my Kindle and reading. I get so wrapped up in writing and everything else I forget how important it is to read and I forget how much I enjoy it).
