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 21, 2011.

Are you on track to reach your goals?

There are 40 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!

I'm at the midway point of my WIP. Hoped to be a little farther by now, but this book has been like pulling teeth.

Wishing everyone a wonderful family and friend filled Thanksgiving!

Checking in from "sunny" California, where it's raining and thunderstorms are expected :-) .

I've written absolutely nothing on "Billion Dollar Baby" in the last two weeks (gee, what a surprise). My hope is to get back on track this week, despite the holiday. I have my basic plot and my characters, but need some more depth to the story to push it to another level. My goal is to think about what will challenge my characters more in the story, and push them to a deeper emotional conflict. Wish me luck on that!

I hope all have a great Thanksgiving, and for those working away, a chance to make some progress in between the pumpkin pies.

Barb (glad to be back online)

Hey, Paty, midway is good! Even if not as far as you had hoped.

Barb, so glad you made it safely to your new/old home. :) Looking forward to hearing of your progress on your work in progress next week!

I did a lot of promotion last week, much of it writing blogs. And I'm currently about halfway through a four-day online Thanksgiving party that has generated some visits to my Rock and Romance blog, so I'm very pleased about that.

In between, I made progress on edits to the third book of my LEGACY series, and also some edits to book #2 that came back from the publisher. Hooray for progress!

Next week will be more promotion and edits--good stuff!

Absolutely thrilled to hear about some progress from you, Paty. You will get it done, don't worry.

You'll get back to it, Barb!

Good work, Genene!

I got my edits DONE! Sent off my last three ECWC requests! Didn't get any return emails back--always nerve wracking--did they get the email? :) So glad to get it done.

Golden Heart Entries x 2 are packed up, ready for the post office tomorrow morning and then my November goals will be met.

And back to the WIP. I want to finish the WIP in January, so that I can then start my Finish The Darn Book challenge.

Great progress, Annabeth/Bethany! Sounds like you are getting much done--hooray!
