Totally forgot today was the start of round four. But I’m here now. Hooray!
Had a hard time coming up with goals. Writing my debut doesn’t seem practical since I’m not ready for that yet and I don’t when I’ll be ready. There are a few things I know I need to do to get there, so that’s what I’ll be concentrating on.
1. I want to do more reading, whether it be on craft or novels in my genre.
2. Writing (obviously) but no word counts or a schedule because I want to use it to practice what I’m learning. So, I may read something and then try to apply it to a scene I’m working on.
There’s probably other stuff that goes into The Well Rounded Author, but these will be my focus for ROW80. I used to have a writing process, but it didn’t deliver the quality I wanted. I’m sort of starting from scratch and figuring out my method which is difficult while I keep learning new things. But as long as I continue to progress, the frustration will be worth it.
I did the first two rounds of ROW80 and came up all sorts of ideas to jazz up the updates. This time around I’m going “Just the facts” style. So, if they’re really boring, at least I won’t have wasted much of your time. See how your old pal Andrew takes care of you?
