My first three days of the ROW80 challenge have been successful! I reached my goal of 1,000 words every day, mostly by waking up at 5 am to write before the kids wake. I’ve made excellent progress on my novel. At the beginning of the week, I was stuck in Act I, scene 2; now I’m sailing into scene 4 and excited to press into scene 5 before the week’s end.
Even though I’ve only been participating in ROW80 for 3 days, it’s really propelled my writing forward. And it makes me so happy to be writing so much. There’s just something supremely satisfying about writing.
Monday 10/10: 1041 words by 902 pm. Contrary to my usual belief (that my brain just can’t focus enough in the evenings to write), I managed to write just fine.
Tuesday 10/11: 1128 words by 7:20 am.
