Errr, yes?

Okay, so I made my big statement about loving ROW80 and how nano makes me crazy, and then it was as if I just needed some down time. I mean really down time. Not depressed down time, just...NO. MORE. WRITING.

Okay, being a bit dramatic there, shawwwking, I know. I did write long hand, I played with my story and, I don't know why, but it's easier for me to take risks with pen and paper than it is with fingers and keyboard.

So, I've made my ROW80 goals -- at least 100 words a day, check-ins with other ROWers (have done excellently with that one -- very fun) and check-ins with ROW.

Feeling refreshed.

Now, onward and upward.
My mom and sister and I are starting a new venture:

renewing your home, your wardrobe, your life!

We'll be starting with a blog and website...eventually writing a book. Hopefully by next Wednesday's check-in we'll have our first blog up! Yay!

How's everyone else doing, anything exciting?


  1. I know I write much better with pen and paper than fingers and keyboard. The only reason I have two WIPs on my computer is because I've got two goals (NaNo and Novel in 6 Months) that require word counts, and that's much easier to quantify on a computer. But my main WIP is being reworked in a notebook, and it's by far the one that's going the most satisfactorily!

    Your new venture sounds like a lot of fun! I'll have to keep an eye on it. Good to hear you're feeling refreshed; here's to hoping it sticks around all week for you!

  2. Sounds like a fun venture with your mom and sister! Good luck!

  3. L.S. I always ask for notebooks and pens for Christmas! I could spend a day in an office store.

    Marji & L.S. we're really excited about it! I'll post it all over the place when it's up!

  4. I find it easier to just write anything, just *do* something if I'm using pen and paper, too! So glad that's not just me!

    Great job on continuing with the 100 words a day. And looking forward to hearing more about the project with your mom and sister. It sounds quite interesting.

  5. For a moment there I screamed "NO!". They say it's easier to for the soul to connect when using a pen and paper. Sometimes I think that's true. Keep on rocking the ROW :)
