Hello everyone! As it is Mother’s Day and my time is promised to the special lady in my life, the update will be brief.
And here it is…
– Write 7k of fiction per week. I exceeded this with 8271 although much of that was in testing out various ideas for POV, setting descriptions, dialogue and such. With all the craft books I’ve read in the past 15 months have come a ton of exercises that I typically skip over due to time constraints. Now I am catching up on them and reviewing the material, which has been very helpful.
– Read and review 4 books by May 20. So, I didn’t finish Memo yet, mostly due to wanting to concentrate on the above exercises. However, I’m about a hundred pages from the end and should be able to complete it, and this goal, before the deadline. Watch for the review next week.
– Visit at least 15 ROWers each week. I was able to stop by 19 between Sunday and Monday and will endeavor to do the same this week – although most will probably be tomorrow.
Be sure to honor your mom’s today in whatever manner is evidence of your love for the investment of time and effort that they made in helping to shape you. And to all the mom’s that read this: Thank you and I wish you all a safe, happy and joyful Mother’s Day. *smile*
