Home (Yet) Again

Failure shouldn't be an option

It is a timing thing though

So, here I am…  I thought I might be able to head over to my other blog and get my world transferred there by simply writing my first ROW80 post of this Round on my “name blog” The Garden of Delights, just like snapping my fingers with more words.

Sadly nothing works that way, and I don’t have the time or focus to deal with adjusting settings that work (most of the time) for what might be a fling of sorts.  I love this blog, and I never wanted to ditch it, just shift its focus some.*

For now, it’s time for a ROW80 check-in (first one of the ROWnd):

Later on in, I’ll probably condense things into a list format, but it’s early.  We just started and there is only just so much I can report.  I certainly can’t do my weekly goal of Assess progress weekly and add more projects as needed now.  We just started on Monday.

That said, I did realize I had forgotten to include one VIG (Very Important Goal) in my initial post (here):

Write new words daily!

This is especially important right now, since I have a typing goal in my list.  It’s all too easy to let myself slide by just getting all those old words into a digital format and edited.  What an accomplishment!  After all, some of those notebooks have lain about the house for decades.  It’s a twofer!  House cleaning and re-discovery…

Nope.  Gotta write some new… stuff (polite alternative for the actual term I ROW80Logocopystarted writing).  My characters, if no one else, insist on it.

So…  back to my five sentences.  I will write a minimum of five new sentences of story daily on top of the typing (which has gone frightfully well the last two days–12 pages!) and edits I natural make when typing in pages.

I haven’t touched my structure book, though I did get a bit further into Sisters In Law.  (Sometimes I wonder why I want to write fiction…**  all I seem to ever read these days is non-fiction and biography.  People fascinate me.)

Anyway, a good couple of days in my opinion.  How about all of you?  How are you ROWing along?  Here’s the linky for you to let us all know.
