Today is Day 6 for ROW80, the writing challenge that knows you have a life. 74 days of magic scribbling are still ahead in Round 1, 2012. For those of you who are new at this, how are you feeling at the end of your first week?
I remember being so inspired by everyone’s check-in posts during my first round…all these crazy writers clawing up the hill of their goals. It’s AWESOME! (A few rounds later, it’s still awe-inspiring.)
Hopefully, it’s not just us sponsors who go blog-hopping around. If you’d like to encourage your ROW80 teammates, click here.

Week 1 Update
This has been a crazy week at work so it’s been light on writing goals, but here’s where I’m at with my four goals in general:
- Get at least one exercise accountability partner for this round. (3+ if lucky)
Marcia Richards, Barbara McDowell and Lena Corazon all offered their services on this one so I feel blessed. I haven’t taken them up on it yet, but I will this week. If you ladies are reading this blog, how should we check in with each other? Twitter??
- ROCK my ROW80 Sponsorship duties!
My “go team” post is slated to post tomorrow but I’ve visited all of my team members on each check-in opportunities. I will confess…after the first day of check-in I tapered off. The straggler check-ins did not get a visit from me cause I was in full database mode by then, but I got into the 70’s.
- No matter how many word sprints I engage in each week, at least TWO must be dedicated to my work in progress. This wasn’t applicable this week as there have been NO sprints. I reached out to my pal, K.B. Owen for but she is sick-sick-sick right now and wisely stayed in bed. I wrote every day, but I’m not counting blogs this round so I’m batting zilch on this goal.
- That being said, my goal is at least 4 times sprints per week. ZERO sprints here at Jenny’s place. I’ll do better by next check-in…promise.
How are things going at your place? I’d love to hear about it!
