Round One Goals

Round One of ROW 80 begins on January 2, 2012 and lasts through March 22, 2012.

Here is my goal for this round:

FINISH MY SHORT STORY, MBW: I will write a minimum of 250 words daily on this WIP (work in progress). I found that trying to set aside specific time slots does not work for me. So if I need to hide in the bathroom to get my 250 in then so be it!

That’s it. Short, sweet, clear, concise, measurable goal. I found that I often spread myself thin trying to focus on several projects at once. So, I’m applying the lesson learned in previous rounds.


And I’m okay with that.

Happy Creativity ROWers!

  1. Simple is good. I honestly think that those who set too many goals are missing the whole point (and all the power) of a writing challenge/dare. Yes, you have multiple goals in life, but a writing challenge allows you to focus on a particular thing and actually achieve it.


  2. I love your goal–it seems like you know who you are and how you write–and I think that is half the battle. I found that I need to write with others, or at least have others keep me accountable to writing, which is why I do things like ROW 80. This is my first time trying ROW 80, and I’m super excited about it! 🙂

    Looking forward to sharing goals and progress with you!


    • Thank you for stopping by Heather. I am learning me everyday. I am a work in progress! ROW80 is a great challenge with the added bonus of having a group of supportive writers cheering each other on. I’ve been ROWing since January 2011…welcome!
