Row80 #5: Sunday Night Special

I'm not watching out for a tornado this week. Instead, spring is closer than ever with willow trees having that yellow-green blush that always precedes the leafing out of those long leaves that remind me of my childhood when I would hide in the willow.

So, short and sweet, here's my progress:

--WRITING: Made the goal of 1K by adding 1,157 to The Seventh Tapestry. Had a great work session with my crit partner. Finally worked a bit on family history.
--BLOGGING: Posted 2/3 for the week. Still behind in reading other ROW80 posts (only read 3/7).
--CRIT Novels_L. Critiqued 2x (goal for the month). Yippee. Would like to do 2 more crits before the month ends. Subbed a new prologue after much work.  
--MARKETING: Nada. For sure, I need to order 2 covers for audiobooks in progress. Amazon sales page finally, finally is linked for Rivers of Stone
--OTHER: Resumed quilting, swimming, and cooking. Falling more into the role of a caregiver for my husband. Feeling a little sad that I haven't written a single poem for April (National Poetry Month), so I read through old poems just for fun. 

May the coming week be filled with words that dazzle, your own writing a form of poetry, celebrating this round of words with writers who encourage and inspire each other with A Round of Words in 80 Days -- also on Facebook. Why not join in?

  1. I love the photo of the Japanese garden! What an inspiring place!

    You've been busy with many different things Beth. How do you do it?

    1. Dear Ruichan. Wish I had a good answer for you, especially as each day brings challenges. So, one day at a time. If a task seems too big, break it down into manageable pieces. Believe in the story and the beauty of each day. That's about it. Hope that helps. And, yes, Manito Japanese Gardens are lovely this time of year -- almost ready to break into cherry blooms.
