You can find more info about ROW 80 here. Basically, it's a writing challenge where you set the goals for 80 days. There are four (80-days) rounds in a year, the next one starts tomorrow.
And since I have a degree now, NaNoWriMo is over and I'm still looking for a job, this seems the perfect time to finally join! So here're my goals for the 1st round of 2012:
- write at least 500 words 4 days per week
- fix at least a chapter per week from my 2010 NaNoWriMo novel
This might not seem much, but I know about myself that I don't like repetitiveness - which means writing each day isn't a good advice for me. Cue the 4 days I didn't write a word during November. You can call it 'laziness', I call it 'rebelliousness' and I can't really do anything about it.
Anyway, I'd rather start with smaller steps and with a plan than greater ambitions and failure in the end. I can always write more if I have inspiration, right? Right.
Let's see how this ROW80 challenge works for me. Good luck to you, if you're also participating!
Do you make any New Year's resolutions?
Happy New Year! \^o^/
PS.: I think I'm going to do one blog post about this per week (check-in). That, in itself is a challenge for me...
