Wish I could say the last 10 days have been very productive, but with limited internet access and a family reunion, visits to Longwood Gardens and the University of Pennsylvania Archaeology Museum, and 'the' wedding, I felt lucky to do any editing at all.
So this check-in will be very short.
--Finished another round of edits on Years of Stone. Currently thinking about character arcs. Have I got enough emotional intensity that connects my characters? That reveals their conflicts and turmoil? Personally, I tend to be laid back a little or reserved and avoid conflict -- unless I'm directly attacked. So maybe another read through just for this issue.
--Wrote 4 reviews for ABNA quarter finalists.
FOR THE COMING WEEK: --Work on book supplements for Years of Stone (afterword, list of characters, map, glossary). Draft blurb for cover.
--Post on writing blog 2x, travel blog 1x, ROW80 2x and read minimum 5.
--Write Reflection piece for A to Z challenge.
--Read and review 5 ABNA quarter finalists this week.
--Read at least one of two pending beta reads. Currently reading My Name is Resolute by Nancy E. Turner.
--Hold my breath until May 23 for the Publishers' Weekly review of Years of Stone.
So we're home, spring is truly here. I'll look for lilacs and dream of these wisteria. May your writing go well.
