Starting Late: ROW80 Goals
What did Robbie Burns say? The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men gang aft agley. Or as we Yanks put it, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. I won’t go into the upheaval in life right now – that’s for another post – but I didn’t get started with ROW80 last week as planned. My goals were mostly written, though, so here they are. I plan to work seriously toward them, but I’ll cut myself some slack when things get rough again. Writing: to polish and send out middle grade novel, and finish rough draft of adult novel. Write 5 days a week, sessions to include: Write 1,000 words a day, OR Work at least one hour on plotting/editing. Social Networking: to connect with other writers, be inspired, build readership. Blog twice a week, plus ROW80 check-ins. Get Jen’s Writing Desk going again with … Continue reading

And the Winner Is . . .
What a fun week it’s been. I had a few more blog readers, more comments, and more re-tweets than I expected! Thank you all – they were fun to read and I hope to see you back here again, now that I won’t be spending all my time on contest posts and college classes. (No, I’m not done, but I only have one final exam left for this semester.) Not only that, but I hope some of you checked out Samantha Warren’s blog, who started this whole thing with a Blog Scavenger Hunt for her birthday.

I’m in a Blog Scavenger Hunt – Win a Kindle!
Fellow blogger Samantha Warren is having a blog scavenger hunt to celebrate her 30th birthday, and I’ll be part of it, both here and at Jen’s Writing Desk. To participate, go to Samantha’s blog (click on the picture above) where you’ll be directed to different blogs each day. She’ll tell you exactly how it works, but the gist is that you’ll have to search for the answer to a particular question on each blog, and then report back to her. She has several prizes, but the person with the most correct answers will win a Kindle Mini! (Hmmm, can I do it too? Have to check the rules!) In addition to Samantha’s fun, I’ll be providing two prizes of my own. Here at JenniferJensen, you can win a copy of Susan Wiggs’ lovely book, The Goodbye Quilt. (Click here to read an excerpt.) Over at Jen’s Writing Desk, you can … Continue reading
