It’s time for the Sunday Weekly Check-In at ROW80
This past week was a strange one. I don’t know if it was the aftermath of visiting my father-in-law or suffering from a cold for a few days, but until yesterday, Thursday and Friday passed with little writing, although more time on the computer.
I did write a poem for 30 Words Thursday – but on Friday. I didn’t even read any books or articles. My morning newspapers (3) were about it.
Late last night (Saturday) though. I finally pulled out my “Fired” story and wrote over a thousand words to finally finish a chapter. I also sketched out more of the planning for the chapters ahead. When I was younger, I was more of a night owl and that seemed to work last night.
I am excited though with a writing auction I took part in last week “Writers for Hope”, held by Kelly Johnson, to raise money for RAININ. Unbelievably, I was able to win 4 of the prizes – 3 first chapter critiques and 1 picture book critique. When I can achieve a goal (in this case having my writing critiqued) while helping others, I dive in. Looking forward to the feedback.
This week I need to refocus and get busy on my editing and working on “Fired”. I will be finished with my tutoring job this week and then I can hopefully return to the writing routine I followed in January and February. I was much more productive then.
