If you're just tuning in, here's the scoop on ROW80.
Sorry, I'm a sucker for both cheesy wordplay, and early '90s nostalgia. But it really is the end of the road! And I'm so thankful that I spent the last 80 day working on my manuscript with end goals and a great group of writers driving me forward.
Ghenet, one of my talented write night buddies, told me about the ROW80 challenge, and I decided to join at the very last minute. If it weren't for her, I would definitely be way behind in my progress. Though I didn't quite get through my original goals, I've come far.
1. Finish revising the last 42 pages of my WIP.
Only a few pages left, which I plan to whip through at tonight's write night.
2. Create outline for next manuscript.
Last week I started small outlines on not one, but two manuscripts. Clearly someone is eager to start a new project.
3. Incorporate new critique group notes.
I still have about 20 pages to go through, which I won't likely get done tonight.
4. Read two kidlit books.
This weekend I accidentally opened up Shatter Me. Let's just say, that pushed me over to three kidlit books - Shatter Me, plus the Future of Us, and A Wind in the Door.
I'm going to stop expressing my gratitude like I won a freaking Academy Award. But I definitely plan to join the ROW80 gang again this January. Who else is on board?
