A Slow Start

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Despite my best intentions, my first ROW 80 has gotten off to a *very slow* start.  I've started work on a few of my goals (I'm currently reading Beth Revis's Across the Universe for my weekly book review, and I've started on a blog post about the role of editing in the creative nonfiction essay that will probably be posted Friday), but as far as actual writing goes?  A total FAIL. I think I wrote twelve words yesterday.  So, yeah, I've got a long way to go.

The good news is that I never intended to get a lot done between Monday and today.  During the middle of the week I'm crazy busy with teaching and research and grading (got a big stack of rewrites I still have to tackle tonight), but around the weekends I have a lot more unstructured time.  So I still have time to meet all those goals before Sunday--I just have to get started on them first.

12 words is better than none! Personally, I only like posting ROW80 updates once a week because it gives me more time to do something. Do what you need to do to make this challenge work for you. Best of luck!

I second Kroll and say 12 is 12. :) It's a wee little sprout which will grow into a towering tree. Good luck, and don't forget the water and fertilizer! lol :)

Thanks, ladies! You are absolutely right--twelve words are better than none. (The power of positive thinking. :-) )
