ROW80 Round 2: Here we go!

Here we go again! 

I am ready to jump in Round 2 (April 4 through May 22) for A Round of Words in 80 Days, that process of setting goals and reporting in twice a week to share progress, triumphs, obstacles, and to cheer on those other intrepid Writers of the Round.

So, here are my pared down (?) goals to complete by the end of Round 2.

Writing: Finish Section 05 of Rivers of Stone. Read through Mothers Don't Die. Send both for beta comments; both scheduled for release before year end. Complete 2 new stories for The Mermaid Quilt. Write a few poems.

Community: Complete Blogging A to Z Challenge on writing blog through April (theme: reflecting on research for Rivers of Stone. Serve as sponsor for ROW80. Comment on other blogs 5x/day. Participate in Wednesday's WIPpet, Poetry on the Page, and Facebook groups IWSG (Insecure Writers Study Group) and 10 Minute Novelists.

Ready for spring, 2016!
Reading/Reviews. Read 4 books/month, and post 2 reviews a month, especially for indie writers. Read about marketing strategies; update marketing plan with specific goals set by month; send out quarterly newsletter. Read Writers Digest and The Writer each month. 

Other. Make 1 comfort quilt (wheelchair size) each month; start fundraising for quilting supplies. Exercise minimum of 3x/week. Declutter e-mail inbox to <100. Overall, cherish each day!

Speaking of motivation, consider reading Kait Nolan's "Bravery, Not Perfection" as you write those Round 2 goals.

Let's be brave. Make it a good round, one and all!
