Time once again to check-in at ROW 80, the writing challenge that recognizes we all have a life, yet provides support and accountability for our writing.

Today I am featured on “Operation Awesome” for their “February Mystery Editor Contest”. The first 250 of my novel “CatchingLove” is posted for critiques. I am working on it (and have been posting excerpts on WIPpet Wednesday) for entry in the “SYTYCW” at Harlequin in the fall. I would really welcome your opinions/critiques.

Here’s another writing quote, this by George Singleton.
