Okay, fess up. Do I need to be scolding you? I’m not seeing your reports.
I am very pleased with my week. I made my goal. I finished my revisions/edits and added about 4300 words in length which was needed. In the process, I made the book better (which is the reason for revisions). The manuscript was returned to the editor early on Thursday morning. Later that day, I wrote the opening scene for the next book in the Hart’s Crossing series (Sweet Dreams Drive) and sent to the editor to use as the "teaser" in the back of Diamond Place. I received a reply from her, saying she loved the work I’d done on Diamond Place and had already sent it off to the design department. She also liked the opening for SDD.
I spent yesterday doing laundry, replying to email and snail mail, and accomplishing a little bit of clean up in my office. Not enough but a start. It gets so bad when I’m writing and ignoring everything else. I am determined to stop saving so much paper!!
Today I am back to work on my Christmas novella. Gotta write like crazy to get it done in time. I’m just thankful that I’m writing this in winter with the Christmas season approaching. I’ve written a Christmas book before in June. It just didn’t feel the same.
So report in, dear writers. And if you didn’t sign up for the challenge in the first place, no matter. Report how you’re doing on your writing goals. Yea!
