Once again, I have tanked miserably, but this time I have a legit excuse. My personal life is in utter turmoil which has made writing (much less reading) very difficult to do. I'm separating from my husband (and we probably will eventually divorce) and so my boys and I are moving in with my mom and we're doing this right away...like this week and next weekend....and I have 3000+ books. What a great thing to happen during the holidays....not. So, I will probably not be doing any writing until after the first of the year. Looks like I'm going to have plenty to write about. I'll have to join back in with ROW80 when it starts back up after the new year.
How did you all do with your writing? Did you get a lot of reviews done? How's your NaNoWriMo word counts (or just your progress on your WIP, if you're not doing NaNo)? Please post the link to your wrap-up post below or let me know in the comments. Thank you for joining me again. I'm going to host again, just not sure when. I'll be posting a poll in the sidebar soon to get opinions on what month we should do it.

Okay, so I have nothing to report, but maybe you do! I'm hoping I can concentrate this week since I'm off of work starting Wednesday. But I have a lot of stuff going on in my personal life right now that is probably going to result in a major life change for myself and my sons. Not going into details, but you probably can guess. I'm planning on getting some work done tomorrow...a bit of necessary research to get a story plan going and maybe by Tuesday or Wednesday, I'll be ready to put more words down on paper.
How's it going for you? Link up your progress or leave a comment. You can also leave the link to any reviews you've written.

How is everyone doing? Share your progress in the linky below, or in the comments, if you haven't done a blog post. If you're writing reviews, feel free to link them as well. =O) I'd like to stop by and visit.
I have made a major decision regarding NaNoWriMo. I'm giving it up! Now that doesn't mean that I'm not going to be working on my book. It just means that I'm becoming way too overwhelmed and I have a ton of personal stuff going on right now (bankruptcy, no vehicle, sick kids) so I'm going to be a bit easier on myself. I made a deal with myself. I can quit NaNoWriMo if I promise to work on my book, in some way, shape or form, this month. That may mean research, outlining, and most definitely means getting more words down on paper. So my ROW80 goal is to get some kind of words down on paper every day, whether it's notes from research, a working outline (if I choose to use one), or straight novel content. Believe me, I really hate that I seem to give up EVERY TIME on NaNo, BUT I have an incredible weight lifted from my shoulders. I'm good with this decision.

Sit Down and Write 2 has started! Are you ready? If you didn't link up your goal post in the sign-up linky, leave your link in the comments, if you do a goal post, that is. I'm not going to have a starting line linky this time. I will post the first check-in on Tuesday and I will be periodically manning Twitter with the hashtag #sitdownwrite so stop by if you need a break. If you haven't already, you can still sign up any time during the write-a-thon HERE.
My goal for Sit Down and Write 2 is to get caught up on my NaNoWriMo word count (which is also my goal for ROW80 for the rest of this month). Wish me luck...I'm going to need it. I have to work, of course, and we're filing bankruptcy this week. Fun...not. I really have the mindset this time to get something accomplished. Let's hope it stays!
Good luck on the goals you have set for yourselves!

....and I'm not ready. But it is what it is. I figure if I keep signing up, eventually I'll hold myself accountable enough to actually finish or, at least, come close. I'm also late to the party on this round of ROW80. So, I guess we know what my goal is for the ROW. I'm aiming for a 60 - 80 thousand word novel. Not sure what that works out to daily word count wise, but I'll calculate that later.
I'm also hosting Sit Down and Write 2 this month so maybe that will give me extra incentive. It runs from November 12 - 25. If you'd like to sign-up, you can find out the details and do just that HERE.
Are you doing NaNoWriMo? You can find me over there HERE.
