For some reason the song “Round and Round” by Ratt popped in my head when I started this ROW80 post. Hmm.. A potential 80’s blog post perhaps?
Anyway… this post comes very shortly after me signing up for this round of ROW 80. Out of my goals, I have written my goal post for ROW 80 and I did read and comment on a lot of blogs! 😀
I have written about 200 words on my WIP. I am home tonight, so after a much-needed shower, I am going to sit down and aim for about 1,500 – 2,000 words on my WIP.
This weekend I’d like to take a trip down to the South Street area of Philadelphia. South Street is one of the locations in my novel and I feel it would do me pounds of goodness to go there and really bask in the element of what South Street is like today. I am not sure if on site research is par for the course for novel-writing. However, I want to get the ambiance of what is like there now. Not to mention I haven’t been down there in almost ten years and I’d love to see the new stores. I am pretty sure the classic spot Zipperhead is gone. 😦
This weeks goals are simple:
- 50-100 words a day on WIP.
- read/comment blogs.
- read a few chapters in Megan’s Way (which I have started – it is gripping!).
- Write on chapter in the memoir piece.
- Saturday I am going down to South Street! I just decided. 🙂 I asked my daughter to go with me… so far, I got a big no.
Happy ROWing everyone! See you all in a few days.
