Gack! I missed it – the “Round of Words in 80 days,” where writers support each other by publicly stating their goals, and posting their weekly progress.

I participated in the last go-round, and found it so beneficial.  Folks I’d never met before visited my blog and cheered me on.  I did the same for others, and met a lot of talented and dedicated writers that way.   So I’m here to do it again!  Just jumping in a bit late.  Time to “hop to it”! *groan*

Here goes:

Writing-related goals:

1. post ROW80 updates on Sundays


2. blog on Tuesdays and Fridays

This past week, I posted Tuesday Terrific: Grandparents Rock!  On Friday, I took a closer look at the iconic Girl Friday.  Is she still relevant in the 21st century?

3. Write one chapter per week on my WIP – this will be a challenge.  I’m on Chapter 8 of my sequel.  Let’s see how I do!


Personal and Social Goals:

1. support fellow bloggers and writers through Facebook and Twitter: those are the two social media sites I actually understand, although I want to better master Google+ and LinkedIn as well.

2. re-vamp my blog: I’ve had the same theme for a year, and I don’t think it’s working for me anymore.  After a year of blogging, I’m not in the purely historical or mystery niches I used to picture myself.  If any of you want to check out my new site and give me feedback, I’d really appreciate it!  It’s still a work in progress.  It’s your chance to get in on the ground level, LOL.

3. exercise 3x per week:  I’ve been walking more often, and the fat cells formed from all those chocolate eggs/bunnies aren’t going to burn themselves off, are they?  At this rate, I should be walking in my sleep.


How are you doing this Easter/Passover weekend?  Have you gotten off to a good start with your goals?  I’d love to hear from you!

Hippity hop,
