Optimism Monday: Another week of writing, another week to be grateful…


I write with the reflection and understanding that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy this beautiful day and the freedom to write the words that I want to if not for the many men and women who willingly choose to stand guard in hostile places so that we may all be free. I write in gratitude this week, for the men and women who devote their lives to this wonderful country, and to their incredible families who wait for their return. Words cannot fully express my gratitude to you, but the least I can do is say Thank You.

So Thank You.

Here is my writer’s task list for the week. We had success last week, so let’s do it again!


1. 3 Blog posts plus a bonus. We’ll slowly build to five posts a week.

2. Put up Missed Opportunity for critique and integrate critique into a true final.

3. Write a Flash Fiction for this week’s challenge, which has to do with psychics and what not. I chose Divination… I’m not going to lie, I’m not wholly excited about this challenge (paranormal doesn’t turn me on as a reader, so it isn’t singing to me as a writer.) We’re gonna challenge ourselves and make it work! (And my offer still stands. I’ll link to yours if you link to mine!)

4. Dedicate this week to Junia and Tinsley, the last two characters of my novel to work on. I’m excited to be finishing this phase of character building. Gotta try to stay on schedule so that I can start writing on August 1st. It’s so close and yet so far and there is must more to do!


It’s a “short” week, but I feel like the weeks are never short for writers. There is too much to do! Let’s try to complete our task lists together. What are you working on?
