First Day of ROW80 Goals (Around the Words in 80 Days)

Writing a lonely act. It helped to have people around who support you, even if it's on the internet like the site for the writing challenge called Around the Words in 80. I'm grateful for these other writers. It's the first day of this challenge and it couldn't have come at a better time. I need some encouragement. I haven't written anything on my story in a week.  If you read this blog then you know I've written some poetry but nothing else.
  • Writing Goals
  • Write every day.
  • Contiue to write a poem at day.
  • Post poems and ROW80 check in posts.

My goal for this week is simple write something every day and post..  I hope to build up to the word count daily goal of 500 words. I want to have the first 25% written by the end of the month. I have a bunch of scattered scenes written and have reached the first 10% mark.

Health goals
  • Lose 5 pounds

I want to make it a habit to go to the gym 3 days a week, and by the end of the month be going 5 days a week. I need to lose 5 pounds. (First weight lose goal marker) I try to tell myself that I really only want to be healthy and not worry about the extra weight.  Still I really want to lose the extra weight I just want to lose it and still eat my bread too. Eating goal limit my bread and sweets. That mean stop eating cookies with my church college group. I still going to Monday's night Cookies and Compline just not eating the cookies. 


  1. Love your goals. Best of luck for round 4! X

  2. Hi, Annie! So happy to see you here!

    Your goals sound challenging but attainable. Starting small and simple is a good way to build the habits you're striving for. And you'll be building on success as you move forward!

    I'll be here cheering you on, and on Twitter sometimes, if you would like to sprint.=)

    I did the poetry challenge last year, and it was amazing! Enjoy!
