#ROW80 Sunday check-in and a round-up of posts to inspire a year of writing

ROW80LogocopyThis week’s word count: 2,545. That amounts to two out of three scenes in chapter two of my WIP, “Good, Old-Fashioned Magic.” So, I didn’t quite meet my goal of finishing a chapter this week. But I did some plotting work that should help make this draft more cohesive than my first drafts in the past, so I’m okay with not having a knockout word count this week.

I’m almost halfway through Roz Morris’ “Nail Your Novel.” That book is also helping me plot my current WIP, so I don’t get stuck halfway through. I didn’t finish reading chapter two in Julia Cameron’s “Walking in This World,” so I’ll add that to my plate for the upcoming week.

I spent a decent amount of time this week getting reacquainted with Twitter and the WANATribe website, posted three blog posts, and jumped in as a last-minute ROW80 Round 1 sponsor. I also joined the Romance Writers of America Online Chapter, so I’m excited about where things are headed for 2014. It will be great to be interacting with fellow writers online, learning about their projects, and encouraging them as a #ROW80 sponsor.

We’re almost halfway through the first month of the New Year, and most of us spent part of this week trying to survive the brutal cold that made “polar vortex” a household term.

If you need some inspiration for staying on track with this year’s goals, look no further than this round-up of posts from across the Webz:

What about you? How are your goals for 2014 progressing?

  1. I absolutely loved Kristen’s post on quitting. I’m going to have to check out the Sage Woman’s blog. Sounds interesting.

    1. Me too! I think beginning writers often fall into the trap of working on one manuscript over and over. Sometimes, we need to press pause on one project and try something new. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

      1. I’ve got three official projects going…a few more I tinker with from time to time. I can’t ever work on just one. WIPs are rather like potato chips to me. 😀
