First Round 4 ROW Check-In

Welcome back, everyone! And for those who are new to A Round of Words in 80 Days, welcome aboard!

As this is “the writing challenge that knows you have a life,” many of us include not only writing-related goals but others as well.

Because it is a writing challenge, I will list those goals off the top. Because I have a life beyond writing, I will list those goals toward the end of this post.

Let’s get started!
