Weekly Progress Check-In

Welcome! This is the Mid-Willamette Valley Romance Writers weekly progress check-in. We want to hear from you.

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


Meggan McQuaid said...

Oh. My. Goodness. I'm first! I'm NEVER first!!!!

I wrote this week. Got some great stuff down on chapter three. Got a lot of organizational issues handled with regard to the critique group I run.

This coming week I'll be writing more! Yay! More on chapter three. Some edits. And some serious planning and goal setting. How long am I willing to let this book go before it's finished? Though I don't like setting time limits on my writing because my family usually blows them up like grenades in a swamp, it think it's time.

Congrats, Meggan! On being first and writing!

Life is kicking my proverbial butt! NO writing last week. Hoping to eek out some time this week. At least I'm home and once I get some bookkeeping for my dad squared away I'm hoping to get back into my mystery while Aztec is being formatted. Yes, I am too stressed to format my own book. That's how stressful my life has become, I'm not doing everything on this next book myself.

Hope everyone else has a great writing week!

Meggan, you are #1! Woo-hoo! Interesting that you're setting time limits on writing. Deadlines have actually been a big motivator for me.

As a matter of fact, this past weekend was a writing marathon for me because I have a deadline looming soon! I don't know how many thousands of words I've written this past week, but the novella isn't finished yet so my numbed fanny is still planted in the chair. :)

Finish the book is my goal for this week!

Hope you get back on track this week, Paty. You've definitely had lots of other things that needed attention. But it's not necessarily a bad thing that you're not doing everything on the next book yourself. Building a team could give you more freedom. Would love to hear more about how you're doing that--perhaps in a blog post?

Checking in ...
I'm trying to write 3 pages 5 days a week. So far I'm getting close but not quite there. Finished personal edits for Highland Miracle my novella for the Angels May Day anthology.
