No progress on the WIP. The only writing I got done was some journaling on my trip (before I forgot it all), three handwritten letters for fun – something I used to do all the time, and preparation of a few blog posts ahead.
What I Did Accomplish:
-Again, I’m announcing the super fun new project that Marcia Richards and I are conspiring on. It’s called The Redhots, and it consists of two redheads (us) sharing our opinions on everything we think is HOT or NOT! Tune in this Friday for the first ever episode where Marcia and I discuss the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this!
-Also, I joined up with five other fabulous writers for an online book club called Great New Books, which is really getting an awesome response from readers so far, so thank you! Our final days of the August book club pick, The River Witch, is happening now. Tune in for September’s read, and please share your recommendations with us as well!
-Something else to look forward to: More Author Interviews! I’ve been busy reading and preparing interviews and blogs for two writers currently, so soon to be on the way – Michael Perry and Timothy McKinney.
–Reading – In the last week, I completed The Devil Colony by DFW Writers Conference Keynote Speaker and NYTBS Author, James Rollins! Loved this one as it takes place around Salt Lake City, Utah and Yellowstone! Just started A Cook’s Tour by Travel Channel host Anthony Bourdain!
-Writing Plan: Just today the fabulously funny and intelligent Nigel Blackwell suggested another round of Fast Draft! While I cannot commit to the full two weeks (being that I work in retail and we’re already planning for Christmas!), I will commit to Fast Drafting practices on the days that I have off to boost the non-existing word count of the present. Thank you Nigel for the kick in the pants!
That’s what I’m up to! How about you? Did the week slip away from you too? Did you make great progress? What upcoming events or projects are you excited about?
