Time for that Sunday morning ROW80 check-in (that writer's online community that recognizes we have a life in addition to our commitment to writing). Goals and Progress? Yep!
Writing: Making steady progress on planning, plotting, and devising character studies for Rivers of Stone with 2,500 words this week. Next week: Finish character studies, continue building plot, read at least one research book.
Community: Attended two writer's readings this week, sadly falling behind in writing crits for NOVELS-L. Next week: Post 2 crits by August 1, post WIPpet excerpt Weds here, and attend writer's group Weds. night.
Marketing: A few readers are starting to post reviews on Amazon for Years of Stone. I'm forever grateful to those who read and say what they think, including the indefatigable Carol Kean, writer and book blogger extraordinaire.
Two biggest achievements this week: A give-away for Years of Stone is now LIVE on GoodReads and runs 7/25 through 8/4.
Why did I pick August 1st? That's our anniversary, 40 years of amazing adventures. Maybe we'll hear from the neurosurgeon by then. Maybe we'll have dinner out. I have a little surprise for hubby. OK, a big surprise. More about that next week.
Check in on the progress of other ROW80 writers HERE.
