Happy Sunday!

My goal for Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days is to write another 10,000 words on my unfinished fantasy manuscript. I did the math and that averages to 125 words a day. Since Wednesday I’ve made some movement in the right direction. I’m behind. It’s still early though, so I am not concerned yet about meeting my goal.

I had Thursday off work and the plan was to spend an hour or two writing. Instead, the wireless network that went on the fritz was fixed and I did a first pass on all the paper clutter in the office. It was truly liberating to get that stuff gone. Eventually I’d like to put a desk in there so I can have my own place to write.

Goal: 10,000 Words
Words Written: 664
Progress: Behind But Can Still Catch Up

How are you doing on your ROW80 or writing goal?

    Well, try not to stay too behind or else it won’t be easy to catch up. But, you know your strength better so good luck from me. 🙂

    Any progress is progress in my book. Sometimes life gets in the way; the secret is still plugging away and not throwing in the towel. I hear you about the paper clutter; I spent some of my writing time last week going through the clutter. I write on a table on my screened porch in the early, early morning before it gets too hot. It is my space, and I love having my own little space to write.

    Keep it up, and have a great week!

    I say it doesn’t matter if you get behind. A goal gives you something to aim at, a reason to put the effort in. If you miss the goal, it’s not the end of the world. You’ll still have done a whole lot more than if you hadn’t set the goal in the first place. As they say “Aim for the moon. If you miss, you will still land among the stars.”

    well its more than if you had written and that’s surely good – maybe clearing the clutter will make it easier to write this week -every now and then even I feel the need to tidy (I’m the worst for clutter you’ll ever find!!)

    all the best for this week
