Happy Friday fellow writers and potential readers! How did you fare this week? I’m feeling pretty accomplished this week! Let’s observe the task list:
3 blog posts this week
Alright, this was a cheat. Clearly I’m going to write three posts a week. Won’t put this on my task lists anymore. 🙂 It feels good to cross one off, though!
- Finish a first draft of Escort Mission
and post excerpts by Friday.
Ok, only half crossing off this one. I really like this story and I’m about half-way through. There is a lot of potential here, but I’m noooottt quuuiiiittteee finished. I have posted an excerpt on my here, so I’m partially done, but I can’t totally take this one off of the list.
Work on my second character for A Terrible Thing to Waste:.Post excerpt of first-person interview by Friday.
I done the work for my character this week, but I’ve decided that I have is a little too raw for publishing on the internet. So I’m going to write a publishable “Character Introduction” for him to post on the web. Something to entice without giving stuff away! Hope to have this done by the end of the weekend.
Seek feedback for current edit-in-progress project, Never a Day Quiet. Post small excerpt (I’m polishing this for submission, so I don’t want to publish too much here).
Feedback sought but not received. Hopefully I’ll get the notes that i need next week. I DID, however, post an excerpt here.
Find some inspiration for this week’s Short Story Saturday (a sequel to Escort Mission, perhaps?) Post teaser/inspiration sentence by Friday.
I THOUGHT that I was going to draw inspiration from Escort Mission, and while I’m inspired, I am not fully inspired to write a sequel for it yet (because it’s not finished! Duh!!). The Good news is that Chuck Wendig, on his fantastic blog, has posted a Flash Fiction challenge that looks awesome. The sentence that I’m choosing: “When does the family document the thunder?”
Another week is done, and many words have been written. I’ve taken a few more steps toward my goals and I’m feeling really great about it!
I hope that you, too, are feeling accomplished and hopeful on this Friday! I look forward to starting another week with you again on Monday!
