I’ve picked up my game on the reading front with another fiction book started and a craft book that I’m just about halfway through. I already know I will re-read this craft book again. I’ve also been reading lots of blogs and commenting when possible (i.e. when Blogger lets me).
Good news: The blogging series on genres is coming together nicely! February is booked and March is booked save for one spot. There are going to be some amazing guests who I will be announcing on Wednesday (25 January).
So I’ve been keeping up with the weekly sprinting every weekday. I’ve been doing well enough where I’d say my goals are being accomplished at a rate of around 80-90%. I had to miss Wednesday’s writing sprint due to a major day-long headache, but I made up for it on Thursday writing for an extra half hour after the sprint. I have to keep better track of where I’m at each Sunday because I can’t calculate my word count for the week. I think its around the 4,000 mark.
The #row80 is a great place to hangout on Twitter, with people posting their word counts and the hilarity that ensues when you get a bunch of writers together.
So I present to you “Overheard on the ROW“:
@Emwantstowrite: Just wrote ‘as her legs snaked up around his neck’ when I meant arms. Would have been a very different scene if I hadn’t noticed!
– this one caused a chain of conversation that I won’t re-post in full here.
Plot & Structure:
@laurengarafalo: Oh yes, nerves, and that pesky thing known as ‘plot’ or ‘structure’.
@LenaCorazon: I laugh in the face of plot and structure, who needs friends like them?
@NicoleBasaraba: So when do all us #row80 folk share our finished WIPs with each other? Round 1 2014?
@LenaCorazon: Ummm, yeah. That is prob when mine will be finished, lol!
@laurengarafalo: That sounds about right to me LOL! #row80

The #ROW80 Twitter Party Anthem made a re-appearance:

For those of you who may not know it, here is the #ROW80 Party Anthem/pre-sprint warm-up song “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO:
There has also been a lot of talk about #teamsprinty t-shirts. So please feel free to join #teamsprinty on the #ROW80 hashtag. The more participants and conversation we have, the more quotes we can gather for t-shirts.
