I think I might have broken my steady record of posting on ROW80. Up to last Sunday inclusive I had always made the deadline, even if I just got in on the last day. But I don’t see a link on Wednesday’s Linkys. The reason for this glitch is I’ve been Squidooed as in spending loads of time trying to do lenses. This got really bad when I received an email from the Squidoo folks to say I was a ‘promising lensmaster’, and inviting me to join a RocketSquids boot camp where challenges are set, to do a new lens each week to a brief.
I have duly completed this week’s task to produce a lens about a product I own using the Amazon Spotlight module and also carried out a lot of work on my real second lens which I would have published today except I hit a bug in the ebay module. I’ve reported it, but as the good folks are volunteers, it may be a while before I hear anything.
Despite all this, I actually completed a goal on my ROW80 list, namely I did get together the submission package for the workshop and sent that off. I should have reported that in the missed Wednesday update.
So my latest goal list is:
- Get my characters to the ‘Rocks and Water’ scene. This really needs attention now as this goal has been totally neglected for weeks.
- Get a package together to the publisher
- Identify and submit a short story to the Mslexia short story competition
That’s it for now unless I come up with another unofficial goal. I do want to publish that lens of course, but hopefully someone will come back and I’ll be able to do that so I won’t add that to the goals.
OK, here’s the list of ROW80 particpant blogs:
