I’ve been participating in the Round of Words in 80 Days writing challenge for two full years now. A couple of weeks back I was considering taking the summer off of ROW, but I couldn’t quite get to that decision. As I thought it through, I realized I’d be a lot less productive if I took the summer off of ROW80 — what I’d essentially be doing is taking the summer off from accountability, and possibly from writing in general.
I’ll admit I’m feeling a little lost lately in all of my writing goals. It’s a matter of balancing enough writing productivity with still being the person I want to be in other areas of my life. I know I need to take it easy on goals for the summer. I also won’t be attempting to check in every Wednesday and Sunday…I’m just feeling too quiet for that, and I need to respect my me space.
To that end, here are my goals for this summer:
1) Write 2,000 words per week of new fiction.
2) Revise Descent (Children of the Sidhe book four) and hand off to editor.
3) Read fiction every day, even if it’s just for ten minutes.
I’m looking forward to seeing what other people are working on this summer. Have at it, and best of luck with your goals! Remember to get out and enjoy the season, too! 🙂
