Summer Writing Journal - Entry #3

As your read this (If there is actually anyone out there reading this!) I am most likely on my way home from a fabulous long weekend in Ozark, Missouri. We head down there every year with friends and have a blast ATVing, riding a John Deere, and splashing in the swimming hole.

Before we packed up the truck and headed down, I had a very writerly week.

At my local RWA meeting on Monday I set a goal to write (at least) the next chapter in my WIP. Right now it's tentatively titled "One Great Night". I also put my name on the waiting list for a July critique, which means if someone cancels, I'll be able to bring in the first chapter and have it critiqued by the group.

I'll be participating in The Romance Reviews Sizzling Summer Reads Party, so I set up my question link for that. The party lasts for the whole month of July. If you get the chance, be sure to check it out. Loads and loads of great prizes are being given away and there are hundreds of authors participating. Every day there are dozens of chances to win. Check out the site for fun games and chats as well.

I also wrote and/or scheduled two other post for blogs I participate in. (Authors by Moonlight and Heroines with Hearts.)

My big accomplishemnt for the week was sending "This Feels Like Home" to the editor at Wild Rose. After a few more touch ups (The back porch was my working spot of choice this week.), I composed a cover letter, attached the file, and hit 'send'. So, keep your fingers crossed! (I'm still also waiting to hear back about a contract for "An Unexpected Blessing", so keep the fingers on your other hand crossed as well.)

All in all, not to shabby for three days!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

I love this, and want to borrow a paragraph to post on my writing group's Facebook page ... the one that begins with 'At my local RWA meeting...' Our group is fairly new, and not at all sure how to use our time ... I will attribute the paragraph to your blog (and encourage them to read here :)

Great blog - and sounds like you had a good time!
