Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days

Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days begins tomorrow!

Here's the long history and details of the project, but in short, ROW80 lets you set you own goal.

"You take whatever project you are working on, in whatever stage it is in, and you figure out a goal for it, share it with us in a blog post that you link to when the challenge begins, and you join our community of dedicated writers and fellow cheerleaders."
But don't forget - this is the challenge that knows you have a life. So ROW80 allows you to change your goal should you need to. Easy, right? And you know every little bit of accountability helps you keep that butt in chair!

And oh yes, me. Here's what I've got going on and what I hope to accomplish with it:

First week of July - writers' houseparty on the Compuserve Books and Writers Community: I've thrown my two heroes in with one of my main villains and am trying to learn as much about their motivations as I can. Along with blowing up bombs, fending off feral sensual cats and painting masterpieces, etc. All par for the course.

All of July - Barbara Rogan's Revising Fiction Workshop is in full swing: got some thinking to do about my character's growth and changes throughout Out of the Water and have to make sure the tension rises and that the arc is consistent throughout. Without thinking about it in such cut and dry terms, however. And structure's just lesson one!

All of July - finish editing and revising and entering missing scenes to the last 60 pages of Out of the Water.

15 July - Harry Potter!

Happy writing all!
