Here’s how this lovely brain child of Kait Nolan’s works:
Row80 – The Writing Challenge That Knows You Have a Life.
In Tiffany A. White’s words:
Goals and Accountability are two of the most crucial elements for any author when writing a manuscript. Row80 will challenge me to set attainable goals, and signing in twice a week to update my fellow Row80ers on my status will hold me accountable. No one will be fired or kicked out if we don’t meet our goals – we technically don’t have to write a thing.
But we will write AND meet our goals! Why?
- Because we have to (we’ve ALWAYS gotta write, right?).
- Because it’s fun.
- Because we’re being held accountable.
- Because we now get to rock a whole new hashtag on Twitter (#ROW80)
- Because all our pals are pulling for us (waving hi to Tiff, Kristen Lamb, Sonia Madeiros, Callene Rapp and Catie Rhodes…I’ll find the rest of you at the next check-in).
A Round of Words in 80 Days – ROUND 3
Round 3 runs from July 4th – September 29th, and I want to wish my fellow participants outstanding success!
My Round 3 ROW80 Goal – Write 2,500 words on my WIP each week and post 4 blogs/week. If I can meet this goal, which I think is attainable, I’ll have another 28,550 words done on my high-risk pregnancy memoir and the first draft should be finished.
(Whoa. This public statement of goals thing just kind of gave me a rush…)
Wish the other Row 80ers luck here!
Since we like to “really explore our studio space” here at More Cowbell, here’s a humor injection from Christopher Walken and Will Farell.
How about you? Are you with me on some goal setting? What helps you stick to your goals? Do you set times for them, have someone hold you accountable, what? Enquiring minds always want to know here at More Cowbell!
