Today we return to the Tuesday Slice of Life – the weekly writing challenge hosted a t “Two Writing Teachers”.

Writing every day in March has sparked and inspired me to continue writing daily.
I am taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo – a writing challenge where you set your own goals. Mine this month is to write 30,000 words.
I’ve also rejoined ROW80 – the writing community that offers support but realizes we all have lives. Yesterday I had to state my goals for the next 80 days.
Both of these are providing accountability, just a s the March SOL did.
I have started a new novella and have already written over 3000 words. My goal is to finish it and submit it for a Christmas themed anthology with Whioe Rose/Harbor Lights.
Once you begin a challenge, you never know where it will lead!

Starting Round 2 ROW 80 – Goals

Today we begin the second round of ROW80 – the writing community that offers support and accountability.

I did not complete Round 1 and though I blogged and did a bit of writing, I did not feel successful. I took part in the March Slice of Life writing challenge last month and I completed all 31 days – writing a post every day. The success of that has energized me and I need to continue daily writing.

I am going to outline my overall goals for the 80 days first and then after this each Sunday, highlight the goals I want to work on that week.
