Row80 Goals and Check-In

Really boring title, sorry!

Haven't posted my goals, yikes!

short term:
Finish making notes for last 40 pages of manuscript
Should be done today!
long term:
Deep edits for entire manuscript:

1.Write new scenes--filling in holes and deepening plot
2.Heighten description--5 senses
3.Deepen POVs and or fix--get inside their head
4.Write 250 words a day and/or 1 hour of manuscript work a day

So, what's gonna help me get there?
I have examples of deep point of view (I literally need these as eyeball/brain receptor reminders) printed out.
Keep learning! Review notes from workshops, read etc.
Keep to my schedule (w/in reason)

Since I just posted my goals, my check-in is more how I came to ROW80 again. I haven't done ROW for a year--still saw the facebook updates, but didn't commit. I've declared 2013 as the year I publish, so...I thought, I can't just sit around and wait for it to fall in my lap--well, I could, but that would be sad.

Jumping in with both feet, recommitting to ROW80 as a participant and a sponsor!

How are you doing?


  1. "I can't just sit around and wait for it to fall in my lap" — that's what got me here as well. I'm not looking to get published, just to pick up the reins I dropped a few years ago, but I knew I wouldn't be able to hold on for long if I just kept sitting on my ass.

    Best of luck :-D

  2. Hey Brenda! I know, I'm tired of dropping the reins too. Good luck to you!

  3. Hi there! Dropping by as part of ROW80 to say - great goals! Good luck with 'em! We'll be cheering you on!

  4. Hi Lee, thanks for dropping by--and cheering me on, see you around ROW!
