My Writing Goals for 2012 - ROW80 Week One

It seems incredible that it has only been less than a week since I discovered a wonderful world of writing on Twitter. First I found out about #wordmongering through Julie at Julie Unplugged that I have found to be a wonderful writing companion. Then through our #commenthour discovered how many of us were either working on books or wanted to be working on a book. Within our weekly #commenthour, as we were discussing writing, #row80 came up, as well as many other wonderful writing tools such as Yarny; which I absolutely love!

I started #wordmongering in Twitter on Monday and discovered I could write the max of 1400 words in 30 mins. By the end of the day I decided I would rather slow down and do quality rather than quantity. Now I am typing from 800 to 1000 in a 30 min. session.

I have a couple of books I am working on but I have decided to work on just one for now. It is a young adult sci-fi fantasy.

My first goal is to attend #wordmongering 3 times a day. It seems to be working for me so I am going to stick with it. That is three sessions of 30 mins. a day.  I did four today but I don't know how often I will have time for that. My total word count today was 3530. On average this week it has been around 2000 a day.

My second goal is to keep up my main blog Shadow Rhythms with at least three posts a week. It is very important to me that it doesn't suffer because I have created another blog for this writing adventure.

My third goal is to find guest bloggers for my blog as well as offer my services as guest blogger on other blogs.

I think I am going to leave it at that for now. I am sure I am going to add and expand them as time goes on.

I look forward to sharing this writing adventure with you.

Do make the Comment Fairy happy and leave your words of support and words of wisdom.

Peace,
Morgan

    1. Hi Alberta, Yarny has a system called Cloud that you can write your novels online and no matter where you are you can write. Plus it makes everything fall back to the background when you start typing so there are no distractions. I just started using it yesterday and I love it. No I am not affiliated but here is the link to it. http://getyarny.com/2011/09/what-is-the-cloud-anyway/

      #commenthour is a group of bloggers that get together once a week to chat on Twitter and share their blog links. It is great fun, come join us this Wednesday at 9:30 EST

      I would like to take you up on doing a guest post for you. I will contact you with some ideas soon!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I look forward to many writing adventures with Rowers in the future!

      Peace,
      Morgan
