Tomorrow marks the official end of Round 1 for ROW80, A Round of Words in 80 Days.
2014 began for me with lofty goals -- two single-spaced typed pages in a lovely chart. With twice-weekly check-ins, I was ready to be productive AND accountable.
The reality is I accomplished only SOME of those goals. The biggie: Published and marketed Standing Stones. Made real progress in marketing skills: guest blogs, author interviews, e-mail campaigns, and book club readings and signings set. Kept reasonably current on my three blogs (writing, travel, and ROW80). Reached out to my local community of writers and made some wonderful connections. Continued to read and crit other writers' works.
But I am looking forward to this break between Round 1 and the next round to really sort through what is essential, what is possible, and what is closest to my heart.
What's most likely at the top of the list is working through final revisions for Years of Stone with publication for Summer 2014.
May the coming break between rounds be a good one for you. Check out what other Row80 writers have written HERE.
