Quick update for A Round of Words in 80 Days…
Three weeks left. Although I’m not doing as much writing as I’d like, I’m OK with that for now. I think I need to eventually know what my yearly writing schedule looks like… from going nuts during NaNoWriMo (And more nuts during the #3DayNovel Weekend over Labor Day) to slowing down at other times of the year.
I’ve decided that when I reach the one year anniversary of my proofreading contract in May (I volunteer for a publisher…I do it for the experience and networking connections.) I’m going to stop. It was a great year-long experience, but life is busier now and I need to concentrate on polishing up my own writing in preparation to submit to an agent. I’ll still proofread for friends every once in a while.
The one #ROW80 goal I haven’t met yet that I really want to is to write two thousand words in one hour. I can do a thousand, and I’ve come close to 2k, but never crossed that line. I have three weeks to make it!

I’d love to have a 2,000 word hour. I did a sprint this week and wrote 1,085 and the words were really flowing, so I can’t imagine 2,000. Great goal. I need to go for 1,500 first!
I need to do more daily writing to get back “in the groove.” The only way I’m going to meet that goal is if I have several days worth of regular writing, then I might be able to push through to that 2k goal!
