Yeah . . . #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. So not much writing since Sunday.  Why?  Errands, some housework and I’ve been trying to get on an exercise schedule again.  I suppose I had some ten or fifteen minute pockets of time available, but […]

No Snazzy Title, Just My #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. Not much to report.  I’m still moving along and probably won’t be on the computer much today except to keep writing.  We’re in the home stretch and I want to finish strong.  Back I go. […]

My First Taste of Rejection From a Friend

Reflections on my Brief Radio Career

The Power of Music #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. Previously on the ROW80 update, I mentioned getting a smart phone and it has proved to be a wonderful tool to waste time with.  Haven’t found any writing apps I like, but I did find […]

Okay Progress, But Good News #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. I’m starting to notice a pattern.  Even with the minimal writing time I set for myself, Mondays to Wednesdays are much harder for me than Thursdays to Sundays.  Seems I always have a bunch of […]
