Hello again, fellow ROWers…Thanks for stopping by.
I’ve gathered most of my blogs together on this one site. Many thanks to my good friend Lisa Hall-Wilson of http://girlswithpens.com for the suggestion.
Within the next two to three weeks, I should be done the first draft of Deb’s book. We’re hoping to hear from one of the publishers before the end of the year.
I spoke with the author of Manuscript #2. We agreed upon a few minor tweaks, and I will be done those – Lord willin’ and the crik don’t rise – by next Friday. (#wordmongering over at Twitter has helped me focus and push through. When I spend thirty minutes working on the manuscript, I usually get my daily quota pretty much done. I also use this challenge to work on my children’s chapbook manuscript. I’ve edited the first chapter and made a start on the second.)
Good news on the doula studies front…I read a long chapter in one of my texts on the way to my friend’s art show. Not to worry, my hubby was driving – not me. I was also able to get a fair amount of other reading done too, including a writing skills development chapter. Hooray!
Choosing a song of the week has gone by the wayside. Mind you, I may take it up again. Tomorrow is technically the start of a new week. I’ve had so many great suggestions, I really should follow-up.
Okay, so this is bad: I can’t remember if I exercised two or three times last week. At any rate, it should have been more.
I’ve taken up the challenge at http://creativeeveryday.com So far this month, I’ve painted four pictures and written a poem I will be counting toward my creativity goals. Attending my friends art show provided lots of inspiration.
I also signed on for Picture Book Idea Month Challenge http://taralazar.wordpress.com/piboidmo2010/ So far I’ve come up with fifteen ideas. Next year I may delve more seriously into writing for children. I’ll let you know what comes of that in our next Round.
I haven’t submitted an idea for publication yet, but the month is still young.
I look forward to popping by to say hi to some of you. (Alas, if I stopped by to say hi to all my fellow ROWers, I probably wouldn’t get my work done. So many contacts, so little time.)
Happy Writing…Editing…Publishing…etc. etc. etc.
