It's summertime. My kids are home, and they are aging so much faster than should be allowed. So for July and August, I'm going to try something new. Simplify.
I started 2012 with a bang, determined to take on challenge after challenge. I found myself drowning. One thing I've learned about multitasking. I can do it, but I don't do it well. I feel like I've spent much of 2012 in a very frazzled state. The next two months I'm going to enjoy my children and find a new writing groove.
So it's a perfect time to start Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) and reassess my goals.
My Round 3 Goals
Writing: Monday through Saturday, I will spend a minimum of thirty minutes a day working on one of my two works in progress. Sundays are off. I hope to spend more time writing, but thirty minutes is my test mile.
Editing: Since the time commitment changes for this, I will figure it out week to week. Writing comes first, then editing. Right now, I have several short stories I'm editing. My goal is to spend some dedicated time on each, sending a completed one every few days to the client.
Blogging: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday here. A minimum of twice a week on Mom in Love with Fiction. I will not commit to any daily blogging challenges in July or August.
Social Media: I'm going to try something different and see if it sticks. I will comment on 5 ROW80 posts every check in, minimum. I will then visit and comment on 10 other posts from my reader. Again, my test mile.
Reading: I will read a minimum of one book a week, and one craft book in July and August.
Good luck to my fellow ROW80 friends.
