Is it Sunday Already, Row80 check-in 1

I skipped the Wednesday check in, because we just started the round. It’s been a busy week. I started out strong with the writing goals but fell apart mid-week. I wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t be trusted to plot. That and I was stewing over character relationships. This is my first attempt at trying to write an abusive relationship and I don’t want to be cliche or flippant. Be sure to check out the other Row80 participants and share some positive feedback.

Mystic Brew finished it’s rounds of critique at CC. I think it went well.  I came back with plenty of ideas to strengthen the story. This one’s dark and nothing like what I have written before. It’s out of my comfort zone and needed honest feedback.

On with the goals:

Begin revisions of book 2 in my Dragonfly Mystery Series- nope
-Send out queries for Dead in the Waternope I have it on my calendar to start next week.
Plan 1 new short story- not even an idea of where to begin. Time to pull out some writing prompts

Edit/Revise Mystic Brew, I’ve started printing off the critiques.
-Finish plotting Book 3 in my Dragonfly Mystery Series- yes. I have a character sketch for the killer and victim. I need to focus on the scapegoat. Need to finish those and start the plotting this week to stay on track.
-Participate in NaNoWriMo and write book 3: 50,000 words- in November
-Read 8 books- (2)I finished Gator Bait and loved it. I also finished Code Blue by local author Joyce Scarbrough. Loved it. I started another book but didn’t finish it, lost interest.
-Be a good human and socialize online- yes, I networked on CIR and my Crime writer’s yahoo group as well as Row80, etc.. I did reach out to indie book reviewers about reading my short story collection. Don’t know if that should count.
-Be a good Baptist and join a Wednesday night group- no. It’s so hard for me to find a group. I love my church but I am not that social!
-Finish my daughter’s bedroom- We haven’t made any progress. Homecoming week at school. We have the shell for the closet built, the closet doors, and the bookcase. Still need to build the desk and build a wall.


How was your week?

  1. Sorry you weren’t feeling well. I seem to be coming down with a child myself. Hoping it sticks to just an annoying cough. I can work through that. Good luck this week


  2. Everyone seems to get sick during back-to-school time. Makes me glad I don’t have to interact with school stuff anymore. 🙂 I hope you’re feeling better. Still, despite the sick, it looks like you’re getting a lot done. Keep it up!


  3. I’m sorry the cooties got you. They are the show stopper for anyone. Hope you’re feeling better.

    Your group dilemma has me so glad I have yoga. You go in, can be quiet if you want or talk with others, do it and leave. Not that it is a Wednesday night church group, it is my “non-hermit” time, though. I hope you find a good fit for yourself.
