ROW80 Check-In 10/19/11...NaNoWriMo Bound!
I haven't been doing much that I planned for my original goals. I've been reading a lot of review books and that has been taking up my time. Here was what my original plan:
--2 hours daily for research and planning
--1-2 hours daily for reading on the craft
--1/2 hour daily for journaling (preferably in the morning)
Okay, so I have not done any of what I planned. However, I'm going to do a temporary goal list until NaNoWriMo starts. Then we know what that daily goal is...yikes!
--I'm participating in two read-a-thons this weekend, starting Friday so I plan to make reading books on the craft a big part of that. This will be Friday through Sunday.
--Next week, starting Monday and going through Thursday, I will be going to the library every day while the kids are at school to read and research. I figure this will give me about 4-5 hours, if I go at 10 every day when the library opens.
--Monday, October 31...not sure if I'll get library time in due to kids' school Halloween parties, but we'll see. Might be able to squeeze in a couple of hours of last minute planning.
On a side note, I had another inspiration today for a story idea so I will be deciding which one will be more feasible to run with for NaNoWriMo. I have some books here in my home library that can get me started so I can hopefully decide before I hit the library.
Also, I did do some writing recently. I wrote a guest post for my friend's blog, Midnyte Reader. It's a real-life account of a horrific experience I had. You can read it HERE.
On a final note, for those of you who are doing NaNoWriMo this year, I have created a group on the NaNo forums in NaNo Groups in the Writing Groups and Clubs section. The ROW80 Writers can be found HERE. AND Lena Corazon has created a NaNo support group, Fun Not Fear! Thanks, Lena! Check it out HERE.
