I was visiting the blog Girls with Pens,
where they were discussing a new type of challenge for writer's.
Usually I participate in Nanowrimo,
an event that takes place during November in which you have to write 50,000 words.
For a wife and mother to four children, November has to be one of the busiest months,
and often the daily requirement of 1667 is not reached,
(although, I managed to win twice in the five years I participated).
This year, as I planned to work on finishing and publishing my current YA novel,
I realized that I had outgrown Nano.
So when I received information about the ROW80 challenge,
I started jumping up and down squealing in excitement,
(I did...my husband looked at me strangely...lol).
A Round of Words in 80 days helps writers to set realistic goals.
It also helps writers to make their writing practice part of their daily routine.
Round 3 started at the beginning of July,
and goes until September 22nd
Round 4 starts on October 3.
My goal is to edit five chapters a week,
a rather ambitious goal but I think I can do it.
If you want to join up check out Kait Nolan's post explaining it at
