My first ROW80 check-in


Last week I signed up for ROW80 so of course my world got all crazy and I got nothing done. So this Sunday I’m here to list my goals for the week.

1- writing 1000 words per day. I can work on my WIP or write blogs, but no internet until I’ve written 1000 words.

2- I will write a first lesson for a Create Diversity in Your Writing class I’ve been thinking of organizing.

3- I will check out 3 review sites for submitting my book.

4- Send my next two chapters to my critique group.

5- Set up some more interviews or guest posts for my blog and for me to do.

I’m just starting with these as goals, if I do well I’ll add some more. 🙂

  1. Yaaaaaaay, welcome aboard the ROW train! These goals all sound fantastic, and your promise not to go on the internet till you’ve written 1000 words is actually brilliant, and something I may need to adopt.

    Have a great week!

  2. Welcome to ROW80! Your goals seem right on and wow. No internet until your 1K writing goal is reached. What a brilliant thought. Wow. I bet that would be a habit changer for certain…. I look forward to getting to know you here… ROW80 is such a great community & I am glad you are now a part of it!

  3. Hooray Alica!!!! Welcome to the ROW girl! I am so excited that you decided to join us! And what fantastic goals you’ve made. You are going to do great with this, I just know it! Thank you so much Alicia for coming by and supporting me and now it’s my turn to do the same for you! And congrats on your book too! I wish you all the best! Have a great week! 🙂

  4. Great goals and nudging the internet out of the picture until the writing is done is a great idea. I actually shut down all access and silence my phone while I write – bit of classical in the background – helps a lot.

    All the best for the coming week, Alica 🙂

  5. Welcome to ROW80, Alica! Your goals look great, and very attainable…but when things get busy, my best advice is don’t be afraid to pull them back a bit! The beauty of ROW80 is the flexibility of the challenge, and when I’ve been insanely busy at my day job or just because of life, I’ve changed them to fit what I knew I could accomplish. 🙂

    Best of luck to you, and I know you’ll do great!
