I can't believe I'm reporting this, but today we swam in the heated swimming pool, sunny skies overhead, about 70 degrees. We walked along the beach, watched kids playing in the waves and flying kites, families gathered around folding chairs, firing up the b-b-ques. How has the week gone since Weds?
1. WRITING/READING. Meeting that goal of one hour of revision every day on Rivers of Stone. Trucking right along and now up to Chapter 10. Finished Cowie and read 2 chapters in Elizabeth Lyon's Manuscript Makeover. Just started reading Ken Follett's Fall of Giants. What a great read. By WEDS: 3 more chapters down on ROS and at least 3 chapters in Lyon.
2. COMMUNITY. Yes! Completed one review for NOVELS-L and another for a writer from my F2F group back home (with one more to go). Keeping current with ROW80 reading too, learning as I go. By WEDS: Finish two chapter reviews for indie writers. Get started on novel review for indie writer. Read one writing craft mag.
3. OTHER. Not sure what my other goals are for the coming week. We may hike out to a bird preserve. We've seen cormorants, stilts, black capped sea gulls -- but no pelicans, yet! I did make two colorful coasters by hand. The local quilt shop closed after Hurricane Ike, so no new fabric for me, but I did find a Goodwill nearby, so if I get stuck, I may start a 'found' applique project.
After attending two Mardi Gras parades right on the Seawall yesterday (and collecting amazing beads), we're happy to have quiet time again.
Check out what other ROW80 writers are doing HERE. Why not join the fun?
