Joining the A Round of Words in 80 Days challenge in summer might not be the smartest thing I've ever done. But it is definitely a challenge. Accountability is a major motivator for me. It's always been true: exercise, dieting, and now writing. I like knowing I need to report and people will be stopping by to check in and help me through.

I understand ROW 80 continues year-round with small breaks. I just might become a permanent fixture. It feels good to know the next time I struggle I'll have support and some wonderful suggestions from writers who have been there.
A huge thank you!
That being said, my other favorite thing about ROW 80 is reassessing goals. My baby sister, and blog and web designer, is visiting with my adorable niece, Samantha. It's 10:47pm on Wednesday and I haven't written a word on my WIP, but I hope to sneak in some writing while they visit. I have some pivotal scenes floating around my head, and I'm going to do some more non-linear writing!
Looking forward to seeing others' progress. Any stumbling blocks? If so, how did you face them?
