I would have finished up February’s goal of doing three challenges per month and hit my weekly goal of four blog posts. I can still hit the three challenges by writing tonight, but I missed the window for the blog posting. Oh well. I’m going to blame it on my computer woes…yet again. LOL
On the bright side, I got all my words in, none of which were for my NaNo novel, however, but decent progress on the other two in process works.
Feedback on my novel out for beta reads is starting to trickle in, all favorable so far, from a plot standpoint. Time to start warming up the query and synopsis engines. Ugh. I think I know what the next ROW80’s goals will involve. Hint: lots of email watching and finger-crossing.
I made excellent progress editing my submission for the ocean-themed anthology, a steampunk tale (no krakens!) that I had originally worried might be deemed TSTL (too stupid to live). The comments have been mostly favorable, so I’m excited about it now.
I’ve also been seeking out more critiques on my erotica anthology shorts, even threw it open to the entirety of two critique sites–Scribophile and Absolute Write. The latter site is not for the feint of heart when it comes to being critiqued, but they tell it like it is and I needs to know that. Authors who post there should do so with no expectations of a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, though many do offer it up. Bless their very kind hearts. I’ve had nothing but positive support at both sites so far, so YAY!! Only two more shorts to write for this anthology after I finish the one I started yesterday. Wah! I’ll miss it but will have all the edits of both my and my partner’s pieces to go, plus the intro and transitional text.
Oops, sorry to wax on so much. Overall, I’d give my week a B+ or A-, with points off for missing the blog post goal.
Linky for other participants is here. Give ’em some pats on the back.
My cumulative stats are here. I really with WordPress had the “under the cut” feature that Live Journal does. I miss that and would have used on my stats page. Alas, there is scrolling now.
