I’m just a bit late with my midweek ROW80 update, because – well, because I was working on my goals!
What is ROW80, you ask? Why, it’s Kait Nolan‘s baby, The Writing Challenge that Knows You Have a Life!
July is a life-filled month. The coming week will involve camping, local exploration, birthdays, and the beginning of Elijah’s Days….
There’s going to be a lot of activity, and much of it social, and writing will, often, be taking a backseat.
Here in the final days before the floodgates of activities open, I am enjoying the calm of home, and banking words, so that I can enjoy the days to come without feeling the pressure of more words to write than time and focus to write them with…
So far, I am delighted with my emerging WIP – the first of two I will be working on, this month. Plotting for both is moving along, and I managed to get my Wednesday posts up.
In early happy news, I now have 99 blog followers on this blog! I appreciate each and every one of you, whether you read here once in a while, every post, or somewhere in between. 99 is such a fun number – and only 6 away from my “magic number” of 105!
It’s a solid, peaceful beginning, calm, in the service of passion. That’s the theme of this round, for me….delving my own passions, embracing them, delighting in them.
All goals for Round 3 are based on those I created for my WANA113 Big Goals Grokking. There will be additions and deletions as the round goes along, and, for each objective, a weekly goal or goals that will move me closer to that lovely blue Target attained!
I move through my action plans for each blog, adapting as necessary, and enjoying the process of creating and connecting. All of my blogposts hit the 800-1000 word range, and my readership has grown by 25% for each.
Week One Goals:
All my blogposts are within the 800-950 word range. Target attained for this session!
I design a logo or graphic art image that represents me across all social media, and an action plan that guides me as I contemplate the best way to unify my three main blogs – merging into my own website.
Week One Goal:
I create variations on my shanjeniah logline, “Lovely Chaos” for Trueborn Jottings and The Unfettered Life. Target attained!
Unfettered Life: Our Lovely, Chaotic Life: Learning, Loving, Laughing, and Living!
Trueborn Jottings: The Lovely Chaos of Creation.
I continue with my plans for the Trueborn double series.
Week One Goals:
I begin July CampNaNo with The Stars are Fire roughly planned for pivotal scenes. Target exceeded!
I am plotting one scene ahead for each POV character (when I finish their scene, I plot their next). This gives each scene room to breathe freely, without much need to adapt the following scenes.
I finish planning pivotal scenes for Perchance to Dream. On target.
All pivotal plot points are roughed.
I have begun expanding Plot Point #1 for POV characters.
I write a minimum of 3000 words a day. Target exceeded for this session!
15,121 words over four days, so far.
I update my word count after each writing session. Target attained for this session!
I participate in at least 3 #wordmongering sessions. On target.
2 down; 1 to go.
I have also participated in #wordsprints and #1K1hr sessions.
I breathe deeply as I move into the next phase of my writing career….yes, career! I have a writing career! =D
Week One Goals:
I write my ROW80 Sponsor Post. On target.
I have a rough draft I really enjoyed writing, and will revise during the remainder of the week.
I fulfill my sponsor duties. Target exceeded for this session!
I check in with Facebook periodically. Target attained for this session!
I check in with Twitter at least twice. Target exceeded!
I check in with Google+. Target attained!
I check in with WANA Blogging for Brand. Pending.
I check in with my CampNaNo cabin (which I may switch). Pending.
I did switch. Once I have a cabin I am happy with, I will check in.
I continue to breathe, expand, and believe! Target attained!
So, I’ve made a good and solid beginning, and I am having a lot of fun! I hope this update finds you enjoying your July activities, as well! =D
