Morning, everyone. What are your writing goals today?

I hope to rinse and repeat with line edits today. I'll rinse the edits I managed yesterday, hang them to dry, and then slog through a wash cycle in the next chapter.

I only hope the mold doesn't set in before my words dry! There's nothing worse than stinky, moldy prose in the basement.

Rewards for finishing will be 1) catalog shop, 2) popcorn, 3) walk in woods.

I don't know what today will hold. I haven't had any time on the weekends to write in a while, but there is a chance I might this time. Regardless, I want to to some marketing on my books.

To continue revisions and to also get a little zzz. Am on call this weekend at hospital and my son's been sick with a flu/virus, so not much time for writing. Had very long day yesterday and need to catch up with revisions.

  • Publishing Experience:I've had some poetry published in various poetry books, newspapers, and some online things-I don't remember the specifics though. No novel published, yet. Oh yeah-I have had some articles published in various newspapers as well, but-like the poetry- it's been a while...

I really need to critique, revise, write and work on my blog today...

But my oldest has a t-ball game and then I want to hang out with my kids and have some fun. So, we'll see what gets done.
