ROW 80 Sunday Check-In


Each Sunday and Wednesday the ROW 80 community posts their progress from the preceding week. This, really helps us focus on our writing and what goals we want to achieve. The ROW80 community is such a supportive one.

Wednesday’s ROW80 check-in was to close to have made much progress so I chose to wait til Sunday’s check-in. I still don’t feel as though I have made much progress but have worked on several projects.
