ROW80 Check In 11/6/11

My goal is to write an average of 500 words per day. So I have a spreadsheet that goes through the whole round and it shows what my progress is. When I was on vacation, I didn’t write for 8 days. When I left, I was 260 words ahead. So at the end of my vacation, I was behind by 3740 words. That seemed so overwhelming, and I wondered if I would ever get back on track. But, as of Saturday night, I was only 957 words behind. I’ve been making sure that I write more than the 500 words each day so I can gradually catch up. My lowest word count since vacation was 705 and the highest was 1466. So I’m really pleased with where I am right now. It looks like I should be about to get caught up completely in the next few days. Yay!

So how are the rest of you doing with your goals? Have you had to change your goals to make them more reasonable, or did you pick the right goals in the beginning? Is this your first round, or have you been with ROW80 for other rounds? I would love to hear from you.
