Row80!!! Woo Hoo! This week is going so well! Ok, my Talk About It Tuesday didn’t make a huge splash, but I have faith that it will grow some goo and stick to a few windshields. Maybe I didn’t talk enough? Or maybe the subjects weren’t nuts enough. Or maybe….. the universe does not revolve around me and people are actually doing *GASP* non-Darlene related things!
A-GO-NY!! Anyway, it is actually the first post I ever posted on a Tuesday come to think about it. I was doing the customary ROW80 Sunday and ROW80 Wednesday posts. Then I added the Flash Fiction Friday segment.
Now I am adding two new segments. Talk About It Tuesday and The Walking Dead Chow Down which is scheduled for Thursdays.
I always find these ridiculous stories in my RSS feed in work and I figured my readers would appreciate the insanity in the world just as much as I do. So Talk About It Tuesday was born.
Thursday is all about zombies and The Walking Dead. I thought of this because I wanted a fun theme that I love (and some of my readers love) and I figured I could not go wrong with zombies! So I am adding the upkeep of these two themes to my ROW80 goals.
On to the Goals:
- Reading/commenting blogs – I have been doing very well on this. I have found some great new blogs and have commented and read a good 1o – 12 blogs a day. It is time-consuming. To make it less time-consuming, I let them all build up in my inbox and then use my lunch hour in work to read and comment. Eating and reading interesting stuff works for me!
- 750words.com – I am kicking so much arse on this goal I am contemplating the actual taking of names. I have been free writing with no rhyme or reason. It is coming out very raw and I love it.
- WIP – Totally bombing on this one. I started the editing process but felt like I still knew too much of what was going on in the story that I would fill in parts in my mind that weren’t written in. Does that make sense? So I put it back on the shelf for another thirty days.
- My new blog segments – This is a brand new baby! I discovered the beauty of scheduled blog posts thanks to Kristen Lamb and I am loving it! It has made my life so much easier. Making my life easier has given me more time. More time has led to structure on my blog. It’s like building a flea circus out of safety pins and Popsicle sticks, except it works.
Off topic: if you haven’t seen the movie DRIVE starring Ryan Gosling, you might want to give it look-see. I am not a fan of his, but my boyfriend put it on tonight and I was drawn in by the lack of script and the abundance of sound and actions.
So that is it for this week. I’ll be posting my post to the linky tools site which can be found here. How are everyone else’s goals coming along?
