That Goal Setting Thing OR How I'm Doing on ROW80

My goals for this week (my strategy is small steps until the end of this challenge round) is to put up one more poetry post to wind up my tribute to Poetry Month and how novelists can use poetry to create beautiful prose.

Then I will print out my WIP and edit it. I'm at 35,000 words and stuck, so I need to go back and unstick myself to finish. For me that means I have to find where I

a. took the story in the wrong direction
b. didn't let the character lead the way
c. forgot to carry a plot thread along

I'll add 2,000 more words by Friday. Whew! Guess I'd better get cracking because I've already scheduled three other things for the same week. My family will be eating pizza a lot. Good thing they love pizza.

Check back on Monday for goal 1--Poetry.


  1. I know you'll get those stuck feet moving in the right direction. Happy Easter and all the second chances and renewal that goes with spring.

  2. What you said about letting the character lead the way is very helpful to me right now! Thanks. :-)

  3. Hope it goes well for you. :) And hope you all enjoy the pizza! :D


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
