I’m late (but not that late!) to this round of RW80. I could have put off my objectives post until the Sunday check-in, but considering that my major writing obstacle is procrastination and that I already meant-to-but-didn’t get my goals up on Wednesday, I should probably strike while the motivation iron is hot.
My ride literally just texted me while I was typing that, so this will be a down and dirty post.
- Write 20,000 words for Camp NaNo in April
- Write at least one post per week for Persephone
- Write at least two posts per month for Powder Room
- Finish weeding out inactive writers on PR and respond to the rest of my current applicant pool
- Update and edit my personal blog (this one!)
- Craft three pitches for outlets I am not currently writing for
Are you a writer or blogger looking for some accountability and goal setting in your work? I’ve had success with Round of Words before. The second round only started this Monday, so you’re not that far behind if you decide to participate. And it’s entirely compatible with Camp NaNo!
Yeah, yeah, I know. We’ve hardly started. We’re still picking up participants. Check-in anyway. Maybe you’re rethinking those goals already. Maybe you want to add some or adjust. It’s all cool. Just let us know.

Camp NaNo has started. Have you?
As mentioned last week, I’ll be here every Friday with a Camp Nano 2015 check in thread. Like our NaNoWriMo series, this space is an opportunity for you to let us know how things are going, brag about your progress, or complain about the lack-there-of to sympathetic ears.
Camp only started two days ago, so if you haven’t begun yet, there’s still plenty of time. Given the self-defined goals of camp, a late start won’t be the anvil around your neck it is in November. Two days of non-writing during NaNo puts you 3334 words in the red. During Camp? Well, maybe you’re not behind at all. This month I’ve opted for a breezy goal of 20,000 words on my ongoing WiP, A Town Called Leviathan. That works out to a reasonable 666 words a day, which is totally on purpose, because I am a twelve-year-old at heart.
What goals did you set for yourself this month? How on track are you?
