ROW80 Round 4 Goals: Body, Mind, and Soul

I’ve noticed an imbalance in my life lately, and I know why: I’ve let all my habits fall to the wayside in favor of just pushing through life on the bare minimum.

Thank goodness for ROW80: now I have some motivation to get my head back on straight!!

I’m breaking my goals into 3 categories for a more holistic experience, though the primary focus will still be writing. Here are my goals by category:


  • Begin running again. Hop on the C25K app and get into 5K shape again.
  • Pack a real lunch every weekday. This includes a protein and a vegetable… for me AND my husband.
  • Drink water. At least 2 Nalgenes per day.


  • Novel progress.
    • Write 7K a week until I finish my novel Draft Zero.
    • Celebrate my progress by purchasing the Hemingway App and a Scribeophile subscription.
    • Do a rough edit and locate Alpha and Beta readers.
  • Blog at least 4 times a week: twice for ROW80, and twice for other creative reasons. Take at least one day a week off from blogging.
  • Do a monthly series. October will be #write31days and November will be NaNoWriMo. December is TBA.


  • Pray Liturgy of the Hours once a day. This will get scripture back into my everyday life.
  • Pray the Litany of Humility every day. This is the spiritual kick in the pants I really need.
  • Attend daily Mass 2x/week and Adoration on Thursdays. Because I need Jesus in my life.

Here’s to a strong creative finish as the holiday season sets in and we wrap up 2016!!

  1. Some great goals. I’d love to start running again, but whenever I try, my knees are stiff and sore for days afterward. and water, yeah, that would be a good thing to drink more of. *makes more coffee instead*

    Good luck with everything.
