Although it hasn’t been a perfectly smooth start back into my new goals, I am proud to say that Sunday was the first day in ages I managed to crush all my daily goals on HabitRPG. Man, that feels good! And it also gives me confidence for a successful and productive second half of this round of RoW80. Let’s have a close look at how I’ve been doing since Sunday, shall we?
Goal One: Submit a Story Every Day. I haven’t been hitting this every day, which I never really expected too much, but I did get the story into Horror Novel Review‘s Horror: Told in 100 Words contest I wanted to write submitted, so there was that. My notebooks with all my submission information have been scattered about due to the moving, but I’m tracking them down so I can get back to tracking what to submit, where to submit it, and all those other details I like to keep a hold on. I’m always on the look-out for new openings or contests, so if you’ve got something, send it my way, I’d love to have a look!
Goal Two: Marketing for Soulless and World Unknown Review. This goal has been interesting, because I’m realizing that I really, really suck at marketing and reaching out and promoting things. I did a guest post over at Lauralynn Elliott‘s, which was pretty cool because I’ve never done that before (that I can recall). I’m doing doing a casualAMA on reddit, though I’m nervous about the potential blow to my ego if no one cares. If anyone does, though, it could be really successful. Meanwhile, I’ll be looking around for advertising opportunities, hopefully on the cheap, and I’m still eager to do interviews or guest posts for anyone else if you’d be interested.
Goal Three: Madeline. I haven’t exactly been busting out a chapter a day, but I’ve been forging ahead pretty steadily, with at least a page under my belt. I should probably make that the goal, it’s much more manageable, though it doesn’t seem like enough. I’m sure I’ll settle into it after a few more attempts to get out a chapter a day. I’m really loving it so far, and I’m interested to see where it goes.
In addition to my goals and moving, I’ve also been blazing through Fallon Brown‘s manuscript for a beta read, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying that. I’ve been squeezing in a bit more reading again, too, which is always really nice. Either way, I’m trying to forge straight on through to the next great thing. How about you? Have you had the chance to check in on any other RoWers here?
