2015 ROW80 – Round 1 Goals

I’ve been a bit slack on writing since NaNoWriMo, adding only about 1,000 words to my book. I’ve done a lot of reading and researching, but not a lot of words were put onto the page. Perhaps I needed a break from the immensity that was winning NaNoWriMo, but it’s been a couple of months and I want to get The Page & the Magician written.

Enter ROW80, which is a Round of Words in 80 days.

My goal? 20,000 words added to “The Page & the Magician” in the 80 days.

The neat thing about this target is that it’s workable around life. If I get more than 20k, I can tweak it. If I suddenly have to work longer hours, I can tweak it. Since I have to link this goal post to the ROW80 linky page, there’s accountability to the community of other people doing ROW80.

This should help give me a little push in the “write” direction and help me achieve my major goal of completing this novel this year.

  1. Reading and researching are an important part of the process too and as a fellow NaNoer I can understand needing a bit of a brain break after November. Sounds like you’ve got a solid goal for the coming round though! Best wishes 🙂


  2. Oh! I should give that a try too! I’ve done no writing since Nov. 30 but really want to get back into it. Glad you shared this. 🙂

  5. reading researching and thinking all so important and after nano it’s good to take a breather – all the best with the writing this year:)
