During the last round of Round of Words in 80 days I never really made any of my goals consistently.
First I tried to blog more, but that got in the way of my regular writing time.
Then there was the inspirational post about keeping a log about what our daily activities are throughout a day. This was to help us discover if there was any where one could become more efficient in their daily writing activities.
What I discovered was I was doing more blogging, but less writing and not setting aside any time for the other things I like to do in my daily life.
So for the new goals this round I will include the things that I like to do besides writing. Hopefully I will be able to find some kind of consistency with not just my writing. That means I now need to set aside time for knitting mittens and hats for my grand-daughter for Christmas. And then there is my other favorite thing to do – World of Warcraft.
Blizzard Entertainment just released a new expansion for World of Warcraft. I now have a Panda Monk named Musuu. I love that panda. It is kick ass with round house kicks and fists of fury. So I have to be able to find time to play this game too, maybe a minimum of three nights a week and one day on the weekend.
Knitting will be for only an hour or two a night. The rest of my time I will try to dedicate to writing.
Blogging will become limited to three nights a week instead of everyday.
Fridays will still be set aside to recap my favorite books of this past year.
- If I can write a minimum of 500 words a week, that would be good for me.
- Maximum word count will be set at 5k in a day. (But if the muse takes over, I promise not to argue with it.)
- Post on Facebook at least once a week.
- Post on Twitter at least once a week.
Hopefully I will be able to finish up Road Salt before NaNoWriMo happens next month.

Oh and I almost forgot to mention the Book Signing Event – I will be hosting my very first local book signing this Saturday at The Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough, New Hampshire. I will be there with my friend, Linda Kepner.
<- See previous post for more information about this event.
I’m excited and nervous. But I am sure it will be fun.
