Happy Wednesday! I hope that everyone had a productive week and a wonderful Easter weekend.
As for me... Wonderful weekend - yes. Productive - not so much.
I did manage to get through several more chapters in my rewriting process early in the week, but Thursday was lost to prepping for a trip to California, Friday was a horrific airplane journey with a seat kicking toddler (An open letter to the people who had to endure being seated in front of my son: We really did try to stop him kicking your seat and playing with the tray. Just the same, we acknowledge that we were not always successful and sincerely apologize for any annoyance he may have caused you. At least he didn't scream the whole way? Right? Sincerely, The Quinn Family.) from Knoxville to Palm Springs, and the rest of the weekend was spent having fun in sun that made the journey totally worth it, until Tuesday when the whole horrific airplane nightmare repeated itself all over again.
However, now that's it's Wednesday again and I'm back home, it's time to get myself back on track and finish up the Level One rewrites.
Helping me meet this goal will be The Writing Throwdown!
If you haven't heard about this, Elana of Mindless Musings came up the idea of having a good-natured contest that will make use of our competitive natures to rev up our writing productivity. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in on the fun, and Elana started a forum for all the participators to set their goals over at RallyStorm.
My goal is to finish my Level One rewrites by the Saturday, April 18th.
Can I do it?
Yes, I... uh, maybe... possibly... Gulp.
Okay, that's it from me for this week.
So how is everyone else's WIP coming along? And whether you're participating in the Throwdown or not, what writing related goals are you trying to set for yourselves?
