WRITING: Actually wrote 6 out of 7 days, steady progress on Tapestry, editing and adding new words (+1,400). Research moving along. Funny to realize how I learn more about my characters as I write dialogue! Meeting with writers' group Monday night.
MARKETING: Getting ready for Saturday's launch party for Rivers of Stone with newsletter, FB posts, and fliers to handout. I'm excited and nervous at the same time, though now this story seems like something that happened another lifetime ago. So, should I do what others have done and combine all three books into one e-book?
COMMUNITY: Doing better here. Read/commented on posts by others x11. Finished beta read for one writer; have another ready to read. Didn't post on Writing blog this week -- so next week for sure. Still so far behind with decluttering e-mail (averaging about 160 unread) . Read 6 books this week (escape! escape!). Still adjusting to walking less. Hate pain meds. Did exercise 5x (water aerobics with no touching the bottom of the pool). Quilting? Making good progress on the 'owl' quilt. Finally mastered how to thread the fancy machine. Starting either an African quilt or aboriginal or finishing something!
Last week, a walk at Manito Park found my favorite tree in the Japanese Garden in full bloom. Hooray for spring into nearly summer.
