round of words signup

A round of words in 80 days: A writing event where you set your own goals.

It starts tomorrow, so I’m volunteering last minute. I crashed on NaNoWriMo 2010, and since this event is a little more forgiving, I’m back at it.

So, my goal for the next eighty days is this: 250 words per day or more, five days a week.

It’s not much, so I won’t drive myself crazy on the days it just won’t come, and I get days off. And, if I get inspired, I can make much better progress.

Wish me luck!

  1. *waves hands around vaguely in genie-like manner* You shall have luck in oodleplexes of goodness. 🙂 Seriously, good luck.

    Personally, I have a difficult time with specific word count goals–I end up staring at the word-county thing on word in a fit of blankness. This is not how 100,000-word fantasy novels are accomplished (at least not mine).

    • Heh. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s not.

      I had so much luck on NaNoWriMo though (except for last year) that I’ve discovered specific, strict goals work best for me. The 250 is such a short amount– it’s really to start me writing, and if I don’t feel like it, that’ll be it. To each his (her) own though. I’ve met writers who can easily pump out 3k+ every day. Others… not so much.

      Thank you for dropping by!

    • I saw that! Actually, it was your blog and one other that convinced me to go ahead and try for ROW80. Good luck to both of us, Belinda. 🙂
