Weekly Progress Check-In

Welcome!  This is the Mid-Willamette Valley RWA chapter's weekly progress check-in.

Did you meet your writing goals last week?  What do you plan to accomplish this week?

(The best prize is achieving your writing goals, but as an extra incentive, we will award gift cards from Powell's bookstore to the chapter member and the non-member who check in for the most weeks in 2012.)

Hooray! In addition to blog posts and promotion, I'm working on the books of my LEGACY series again! Feels great!

For the coming week, I'll be doing more of the same. Am currently going through my databases to see what clues were planted in earlier books that need to be answered in the later books of the series. Interesting!

Happy writing to all!

Yay on getting back to the next Legacy book, Genene!

Last week I finally got LARK'S QUEST published, and it's selling amazingly well already, so I'm putting any promo on the back burner for now. My only promo thing is to set up the "Deeds of the Ariane" website, which is separate from my regular site. Got to finish that this week. I am now working on UNDER THE BOARDWALK, the second Pajaro Bay romance. It's going well, now that I've finally gotten the opening re-worked. My plan is to finish the rewrite and get the book published by July 15. I've promised readers on my mailing list I'll have it out by then, so I've got to get it done!

Good luck on reaching this week's goals, everyone, and happy 4th. :-)

Woo-hoo on the publication of LARK'S QUEST, Barb! With a new Web site and another book by July 15, you have lots to do. Good stuff!

Congrats Ladies! Happy Independence Day!

I am working through my scene list. As I write scenes with a finished draft in mind, something interesting has happened to my writing...suddenly I'm writing just the basic dialog and action, with just an occasional detail of setting thrown in. Before, I was trying to write all the layers at once. It was very time consuming, and this is a much faster way to do it.

Missing my RWA fix this month, but you-all have a great time and I'll see you later. PS: who else is going to enter the Golden Pen?
