Weekly Progress Check-In

This is the Mid-Willamette Valley RWA's weekly check-in.  Every Monday we encourage members and visitors to let us know how their writing is going.

Today is Monday, November 7, 2011.

Are you on track to reach your goals?

There are 54 days left in 2011.

How are you doing?  If you have gotten off track, this is the week you can regain your momentum. Tell us how it's going, and set a fresh goal for the upcoming week. A page a day is a book in a year. You can do it!

My writing progress reports have all sounded the same lately: promotion and edits. However, since I'm making progress with both, that's good news!

Same sunny writing forecast for me next week! Hope everyone else has a productive week!

I got three of my ECWC requests out, and have my YA ready for GH. Now, I'm just finalizing edits on the contemporary. I want that out no later than start of next week. I've edited 112 pages so far. If I can edit 30 a day or so, I can meet my target. Then off to the agents. And to mail both GH entries. Debating on whether I'm entering So You Think You Can Write. If you are targeting Harlquin this is a great contest going on NOW.

Genene, good work!

Annabeth way to get those requests out there! You are whizzing on the edits.

I didn't get as many words as I would have liked last week about 5000, I wanted that many a day but I kept getting pulled away. I did get my editor request for ECWC off. I sent the first two chapters of my wip to my CP and she said I didn't have enough conflict so I've been rewriting form the beginning to make the conflict more evident.

I have two appearances at fourth grade classrooms for the 4th grade picture book contest this week so that will put a crimp in the writing , but I think the dh is going to Princeton by himself this weekend which will give me more writing time.

Annabeth, great job getting those requests and contest entries out!

Paty, 5000 words is still a very respectable count. Are you doing ongoing presentations to fourth graders? Or are these different classes? Great that kids are being exposed to the writing world!
