This is a big week here at at More Cowbell, even if it doesn’t look like it. Here’s what’s going on:
- ROW80 officially ends today.
This was my first ROW80 and it was eye opening. I will be approaching things differently the next round with time and milestone goals, rather than word goals, for my WIP. I seem to get a lot more done that way.
I did manage to read Gene Lempp’s update (on my phone) and he pretty much said everything I wanted to in his post on ROW80 today. I loved Sonia Madeiros’ post and Nicole Basaraba’s as well. Nicole knocked it out of the park on her goals. 🙂
To encourage the participants in Team ROW80 this week, go here.
We’ve set a date for our ROCK THE ROW party to correspond with the start of Round 4 (October 3-December 22nd). The party will be on October 5th, ALL DAY, that first day of Check-in. More details are coming in the next week or so but save the day. We’re gonna have a big extravaganza. 🙂
- I am currently on a family vacation
I’m traveling through Missouri, letting the family hang out with Baby Girl. (She’s been a HUGE HIT!) This is the first time I’ve traveled since starting my blog and, despite scheduling as much as I could in advance, it was still a bit stressful. (I’m the admin goddess at Writers In The Storm this month too.)
The one downer on the trip is the seriously crappy coverage. I don’t know if this is because we’ve had storms or if it’s because I have some technically challenged relatives but it’s been dismal trying to connect to the internet – I was hoping to catch up on some of my peep’s blogs when I actually had free time. Perhaps the universe is encouraging me in a complete vacation? I haven’t decided yet…
Suffice it to say that when I get back there will be posts on the happenings and funny moments of my trip. I mean, who knew there were soooo many tattoo parlors in Branson?
- Tiffany Lawson – Naked Editor had an awesome post here on 9/20.
In case you missed Tiffany’s Tuesday post, click here. She’s giving away a seat in her October class to one lucky commenter on Tuesday’s post (deadline is late tonight). Why not have it be YOU!
- Tomorrow is the Life List Club Milestone Party!
There’s a ton of prizes being given away (TWO prized by yours truly!) and a ton of celebrating. We’ll be reporting on our goal progess and inviting you to do the same. I hope you stop by tomorrow and join in the fun. 🙂
Last but not least…Did you know that Alec Baldwin will be breaking a record as the most frequent guest host on Saturday Night live this weekend? I just thought I should let you know in case you’re gonna be on vaca on Saturday night too. You’ll need to add SNL to your vacation schedule. 🙂
What are you up to this week? If you were a ROW80 participant, how did Round 3 go for you? Where do your family vacations usually happen? Is there a blog post I need to put on my list to read next week when I get back into great internet connection? Enquiring minds always want to know here at More Cowbell!
