Good job getting most of your goals met.

This week was incredibly lucky/productive for me. I don't have many weeks like this one, so I must celebrate when they happen.

Good luck next week!!!

I was banging away diligently on a working synopsis, hoping to get the story settled in my mind. I learned a lot, most especially about my characters. Although I did not finished the synopsis, I outlined to the end. My lovely crit partners agreed that it was okay to change my goal from finishing the synopsis to returning to actual story writing. I pledged a prologue and chapter by this past Thursday and I made that goal. Going forward my goal (for now at least) is a chapter ever two weeks. Off to work on chapter 2

WooHoo!!! Ann!!!

Keep banging away!!! Good luck writing a chapter every two weeks. Sounds like a very doable goal!!!

And congrats on getting the story outlined to the end. That's MAJOR!!!

On and off the computer all day long. 12 double spaced Times New Roman pages, and not too bad for first draft stuff. Figure that to be slightly more the 1/3 of the chapter, so while I have lots more to go, feeling pretty gratified with my progress. And while I'm here, I'll admit that it took some work. There were plenty of times I wanted to get up, grab book, and sit outside basking in the sunlight. Suffering for one's art takes commitment.

WTG, Ann!!!

"Suffering for one's art takes commitment."

This would make a great bumper sticker!!!

You did good, girl!!!
