Wish I had happy news . . . I'm still struggling with that nasty cold, and we're slowly preparing for the 'big trip' of being away from home over a month. Mending plus packing! Biggest achievement so far: figuring out how to avoid roaming charges with the iPhone. Other work done so far this week:
BLOG = Weekly goal = post x3. By Weds: Posted to ROW80 x2 and have working draft for writing blog with another idea for travel blog -- "How Wearing Glasses Can Save You From Being Burned at the Stake" (forthcoming, but not posted yet).
READ BLOGS x5? By Weds: Actually read x3.
CRIT Novels_L. x2 for the month. Personal goal x4. By Weds: posted x2 and that means completed 3 so far for the month.
Best writing moments: 1) Being a part of The Internet Writing Workshop, Novels_L group. Got 2 critiques in today for chapter 5 of Tapestry, and somehow it just helps when another writer you trust gives you thoughtful insights and editing feedback that will lead to a stronger story. 2) Realizing that I like my main character MUCH better from first person pov. And 3), Well, all that and a box of Kleenix.
