ROW80 – Mid Week Check-in




A day late in reporting my progress for this week for ROW80 – Mid Week Check-in.

I have been doing some writing – small blog posts and I am on track with this. Writing short pieces the past few days has helped. I am also adding to my idea file. It is always surprising where the ideas come from.

(“It’s Monday. What are You Reading?” and “30 Word Thursday”)

I joined the Cambridge Writing Club last night and attended my first meeting. We did some free writing and shared a piece of writing for critique. It seems like a very supportive group and meets twice a month.

I received a critique I won in an online auction for “Girl with a Curl” and I will have extensive revisions. Hard to deal with a critique that basically panned it. But I still believe in that little girl, and will do what it takes to make it better. Just plan to put it aside for a couple of weeks.

I have added a couple more scenes to my “Fired” novel. I’m really enjoying the characters and their growing chemistry.

I am trying to catch up on the “Picture Book Magic” writing course. Being away for a week didn’t help, but I am going through the lessons one by one. Hope to be caught up by the end of the weekend.


All the best to everyone in the week ahead.

  1. Sounds like you’ve had a productive week.

    It can be hard to get those far less than glowing critiques, but every time I’ve gotten one from someone I trusted, there has been a ring of truth there that has made all of my writing better. I hope you find the same, if you take the critiquer’s opinion seriously.

    Best of luck to you and to that little literary curly girl. ❤
