A Round of Words in 80 Days – Round Two!

This is my first time doing ROW-80. It came to my attention through one of my blog friends.

Round Two: April 4 – June 23, 2011

I'm enrolled in some online writing classes at Writers Village University, so I am forced to write stuff every week anyway, but this gives me the push to do something other than my assignments every day.

This blog is not a dedicated writing blog. I do not feel I write regularly enough to warrant one, so my check-ins will be within this blog. I mainly keep this blog to books and movies so it kind of fits in.

If anyone is interested, the sign up linky is here. You can read the other participants goals for Round 2.

My Goals (subject to change)

Write at least 1,500 words per week.

Complete and polish 2 short-stories.

Start outlining novel.

Read a lot about the craft.

That will be it for now. I want to achieve my goals. But anything extra I do manage to do will be included in my check-ins.

One Possible Goal

I've been reading that blogging helps writers write better. I've been blogging for a long time, and occasionally I blog a thought provoking post (most of the time it is a lot of pulp). I blog regularly so consistency isn't the problem. However, I am going to attempt to do one thought provoking post per week. It will be either on reading or movies or maybe even writing. Let's see what the wind brings.
