Part of my goal for 2011 is to regain my life. Step 1? Start writing again. So....I'm going to take up ROW80.
ROW80 or A Round of Words in 80 Days challenges writers to take one, mesurable goal, and accomplish it in 80 days.
I choose, for this round, a very simple goal: write 30 minutes a day. Not research, not plot, but write. I need to keep clear it in my mind that it should be part of my WIP and not a blog post or twitter chat. I also need to state that I can plot and research, but that does not go into the 30 minutes of writing.
So, I've gathered my writing tools into one place (my favorite fountain pen, my notes, and my research books, plus I'm going to update my Scrivener software today to 2.0) and I've made myself a little chart.
Starting January 3, 2011, I'm going to write for 30 minutes straight. If I write more? Great. However, I cannot go less than 30 minutes.
That's my goal and I'm stickin' to it.
