Those of you who hang around the ROW80 page on Facebook may have seen that my slow start to Round Four ground to a temporary halt only two days in when I ended up in the ICU the day I expected to go home.
The flurry of fear, changes in lifestyle and implosion of short term plans has been substantial. The planned rest has been expanded and time for rumination has been filled with many new topics.
I have done very badly on my goals so far, but I can only get better.
I will fulfill my assignment as a sponsor, and encourage more ROWers than my assignment whenever possible. I am catching up yesterday and today.
I will respond to comments within a week. This time frame will shrink as my typing gets back to normal. I ended up in the hospital twice as long as planned, so I was behind. I did catch up yesterday, however, and hope to stay on top of comments.
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 have been writing down ideas, memories, and phrases as I can.
I will continue to fight against a cluttered mind and environs, by decluttering at least three hours a week. I spent more than three hours this past week supervising cleaning minions.
Please go visit around the other ROWers, whom you can find here.
