This is going to be short and sweet, as I am so late! Unfortunately, I didn't get any writing done this week. Someone needs to invent a cattle prod for writers, I swear. But I'm not going to let it get me down. I'll start this week afresh. And I was shelving my lovely collection of (blank) journals today and I decided I'm going to start doing morning pages every day. Maybe that will inspire me to get busy writing on my novel. I'm still determined to reach my 15,000 word goal by month's end. ;O)
Note: I'm not doing two check-ins a week because I just don't have time so Sundays will be my weekly check-in for ROW80.
Don't forget...Sit Down and Write 3, my two week write-a-thon/writing challenge, is coming May 1st. You can get all the details and sign up HERE. Hope you will join me!

SCROLL DOWN TO SIGN UP FOR SIT DOWN AND WRITE 3
I had fully intended on joining ROW80 when it kicked off last week, but as usual, I am behind the times. I keep asking myself the question, "If writing a novel is what you want to do most in the world then why the hell aren't you doing it?" I still haven't come up with an answer. I just have to keep making some kind of an effort and maybe I'll hit my stride. I have had a lot of personal stuff going on. I'm going through a divorce currently. We separated in early December and my sons and I had to move in with my mom. It has been an experience and not always a pleasant one, moving back in with a parental unit. LOL! So, not exactly conducive to getting into a writing state of mind. But I shall soldier on. I'm joining in once again with ROW80 and I've signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo this month. My goal is 15,000 words by month's end. We shall see how it goes.
The Sit Down and Write 3 write-a-thon is for any writing you need to get done. If you're working on a novel, a novella, or even short stories. If you have a ton of reviews to write coming off of Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon or my Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon. Any writing you need to get done...this is the time to really buckle down. I'm not going to be hosting any mini-challenges, but I will have check-in linkies posted every few days, if you are so inclined to share your progress. You can link to your reviews or your progress posts. You can also stop in and chat on Twitter and share your progress there. Our Twitter hashtag is #sitdownwrite Official dates and times: Wednesday, May 1 at 12:01am CST through Tuesday, May 14 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone).
