On to my next challenge now.
After failing miserably (well, maybe not so miserably; I did finish the week-long challenge in a week and a half) at Voice Week 2011, I’m ready to be pushed again.
So. I chanced upon A Round of Words in 80 Days (a.k.a. ROW80), and I think this is doable enough. This is apparently Round 4 of the challenge, and I’m glad I found out about it!
To be a bit on the sure side, I’m setting just one goal here:
FINISH THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY FIRST NOVEL. (see postscript)
I will actually sign up for NaNoWriMo, but I don’t want to be overly stressed about having to finish 50,000 words in a month. So I’ll try and see how far I can get with NaNoWriMo, but the ultimate commitment I’m making to myself is to have a complete draft in 80 days, starting tomorrow.
I’m happy and excited to see a big community here at #ROW80, and I’m looking forward not just to achieving my goal but also to interacting with the other writers here.
I just went over the #ROW80 blog and realized I need to improve my goal statement. Okay.
I WILL WRITE AT LEAST 500 WORDS EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE NEXT 80 DAYS, TOWARD THE COMPLETION OF MY NOVEL.
That should do it.
