Round 1 of ROW80 for 2016 Begins


Today we begin the first round of ROW80 – the writing community that offers support and accountability – for 2016.
I attempted Round 4 after stepping back from writing near the end of Round 2 and did not participate in Round 3. I have definitely missed the community and the accountability.
I need to get back into a writing routine and participating in ROW80 will help with that overriding goal for 2016..

Here are my goals for Round 1:
1. Write daily – at least 500 words daily.
2. Write first draft of middle grade novel.
3. Write at least one picture book a month
4. Outline a new holiday novel and start work on first draft.
