ROW80: Round 1 Goals

I have my goals for the year, but to achieve those, I have to break them down.  I am ready to meet this challenge head on, armed with a renewed sense of self and direction.  With my new marital status, I am also finding myself with peaceful visitation days.  I love my boys, but those days they are visiting their dad make for a silence I haven't had in a lifetime.  I plan to capitalize on the opportunity this gives me during this round.

Round 1 Goals:
Write 1,000 words on the days I have no kids.
Attend one of my Writer's Groups on a regular basis.
Select/ Revise/Submit entries on days I have the boys.
Blog on Wednesdays
Read one post on improving my craft and Connect on Twitter/Facebook/Goodreads for an hour everyday.

Breaking my bigger goals down should enable me to reach my larger goals that I have set for the year.  Cheer me on!


  1. I wrote 1000 words yesterday after taking about two weeks off for the holidays. It felt wonderful. Your goals seem really attainable! Good luck with them.

  2. Thanks Steph! I hope I can stick to it. Good Luck with your goals as well!

  3. I had to break my goals down pretty far too, Christine. I think it helps us achieve them when they're not so nebulous. Good luck this round!

  4. Hello there! Nice to see you on ROW80!
    You have some exciting goals there!
    And I'm with you. Setting smaller goals that add up to a larger one is much easier ;)
    Good luck!

  5. Hi Christine,
    I like how you broke your goals down according to what's happening in your life on any given day. I'm looking forward to reading your progress and chatting with you on Twitter!

  6. Thank you all for the feedback and support! Wow! I can tell already I am in the right place! Motivation definitely grows when you are held accountable! Best of luck to each of you as well.
