If you are unfamiliar with a Round of Words, or ROW80, click here to read more about it from the creator of the challenge, Kait Nolan. It is a writing challenge that “knows you have a life;” its flexibility is often helpful, as it is for me this Round.
I will have a slow start to this fourth Round of Words, but wanted to declare myself from the start. October 7th is the first day of the Round, as well as the day I will undergo shoulder replacement surgery. It may sound strange, but I am looking forward to the surgery and the resultant rest and rumination at home.
Given my slow start, I will begin with small goals, in the hope of making them habits I can build upon during the Round:
I will fulfill my assignment as a sponsor, and encourage more ROWers than my assignment whenever possible.
I will respond to comments within a week. This time frame will shrink as my typing gets back to normal.
I will continue to explore in free-writing, at least three times a week, what genres and stories light me on fire, where I feel I have something to say that may teach and entertain.
I will continue to fight against a cluttered mind and environs, by decluttering at least three hours a week.
Please go visit around the other ROWers, who can be found here Encourage as you can, share strategies, make friends. It is a wonderful community.
