On Writing…my writing
I made myself some more specific goals this round of ROW80 because I’ve learned that I’m the type of girl who needs specific deadlines. I told myself that I would write Monday through Thursday from 8pm-9pm and guess what, I’ve done it this week! There just so happens to be a great group of ROW80 sprinters on the #row80 hashtag on Twitter and it helps tremendously. My weekly word count goal is 5,000 and writing for one hour four times a week put me at 5,700 words this week. Hopefully if I keep up this rate, I will finish my WIP by the end of this round.
I really hope I can keep the 8pm-9pm writing time because it works so well for me. I could write more than this, but Fridays are usually a non-writing day and Saturday and Sunday are blog-writing days. I did a quick word count of my blog posts and I wrote 1800 words for my blog posts which I’ve completed and scheduled for Monday and Wednesday this week. I didn’t realize how many words go into these blogs. I’ve also written another blog draft for the following Wedesnday.
I’m still humming and hawing about what I could blog about weekly in a decent amount of time. I will come to a decision soon hopefully. Maybe I will do a test post to see how long it takes.
Genre blog series progress
I’ve had some luck this week and the blogging community is full of such nice writers because I have six guest posters lined up for February and into March for my upcoming blog series on genres. There’s still time to contact me if you’re interested in guest posting for this series! I will be announcing the lineup on January 25th.
ROW80 Sponsor duties
I’ve been hopping around the check ins and commenting where possible. I’ve mentioned on Twitter to those who follow the #row80 hashtag that people using Blogger should allow us to commenting using Name/URL otherwise it doesn’t like us WordPress users and I really did want to comment on the Blogger’s posts too.
I’m working my way through a great fiction novel “A Summer in Europe” by Marilyn Brant. Now I just have to start reading a writing craft book in parallel.
How’s everyone else doing? Wanna guest post for the genre blog series? Just send me an email.
Have a great week!
