Doing a second-pass on cp's latest ms. It's great btw! Hope to complete more revisions but haven't been in the mood lately. Hoping mojo returns, and it will. It needs to. Today. :humph:

Today I WILL (I like RC's "I will" statement) consider working on the blog some more.

Used most of my morning write-time 'personalizing' a query submission (this means I wrote ten versions of the personalization, then threw it away and just used my regular query). Then backtracked and tinkered with my first scene AGAIN. But ended up waiting in my car for a client running late, pulled out the yellow legal pad, and thought up some pretty good ideas, so the day has redeemed itself!

WIP - Black Sea. It's not about the Black Sea.

A work day, so no writing goal. I thought I'd get something done on my lunch break but the beautiful weather was beckoning me outside, so I read my Kindle instead. :tongue: Bad me.

Um... I think we need to have a serious conversation about your goal planning.

Well, I didn't hit 2000, but I did get 1000. Not bad. Tomorrow's another day. I'm about one-tenth of the way done with my new wip. Yay!
