So all I do now is work, write, eat veggie chips, and feign a few hours of sleep each night. I am immersed in Fast Draft and it’s all I have time for. But, it’s for 2 weeks! And I can do anything for 2 weeks!
I’m also two weeks into ROW80. Seems to be my lucky number! Here are my ROW Goals.
- Blessings vs. Gratitude Challenge For the month of June, I want to journal about the blessings in my life rather than just things I’m grateful for. I’ve been blessed by some great experiences and introductions lately, so I’m hoping by focusing on the positive in my life I can learn to better handle the negative.
- Fast Draft! Fast Draft is a process I learned about from Candace Havens at the DFW Conference, and it is set about to help you write a first draft in 2 weeks by writing 20 pages/day.
- Still blog ahead. Blogging ahead helps me to focus on my WIP now. I was able to get some posts prepped in my first week, and now I’m busy connecting and completing several guest posts for my new Tuesday Featured Writers series.
- Read 2 books a month. I have too many books going at once right now! I’m currently focusing on the Fifty Shades series (stay tuned for an upcoming blog post) and on These Things Hidden, which is a selection for my book club.
So what have I accomplished?
I’ve definitely been thinking about blessings and I’ve shared some of them with my book club and my parents, but I haven’t been journaling about them yet. I do want to get back into that. I know I’m thinking differently, but I want to record that because I think it’s important to know when you’re learning something new.
Blog ahead. I have some reviews backlogged for
rainy writing days, but I’m so excited about my new Tuesday series featuring writers! Thriller writer CJ West kicked us off, and in case you missed her, women’s writer Patricia Sands joined me yesterday! Next week I’m thrilled to host a WISCONSIN writer! And the series will finale with a New York Times Bestselling Author! But I’m not saying who. 😉 You’ll just have to wait and see.
I’m getting back into gear with my reading which is another reason I’m not sleeping. The other night I was up until 4 am reading the Fifty Shades series!
I’ve now fallen asleep and woken up with my kindle still in hand 3 out of 4 nights. And once I woke up after dropping the kindle on my face! I’ve been audio booking it in the mornings while I get ready for work.
And that brings me to Fast Draft. My biological writers clock is ticking! While attending my second writers conference, I knew I needed a change so I could finish a first draft already. And that’s when Candace Havens walked into my life!
You can learn all about Fast Draft today in my contributing post at The Life List Club! I shared #FastDraft: How To Do It Successfully and What You Learn Along the Way.
How are your ROW goals going for you? Does your writers clock need a new schedule?
