I'm checking in to let you know how my week went, but also to keep myself on track. I'd love it if you're a writer and leave your progress in the comments, but if you don't want to do that, that's okay too.
It's been a tough week watching all my friends trot off to the Romance Writers of Australia conference on the beautiful Gold Coast. My writers group buddies Paula Roe, Shannon Curtis and Keziah Hill sent me lots of tweets about what was happening, but it was so hard! I was missing out! But I'm going to get to the next one for sure. It's in Fremantle in Western Australia next August and I've already put the dates in the diary. I'm planning my trip already :-)
And what would top off next year's conference for me? Why a few book sales for this version of me of course! So that's why I spent the weekend with a concerted effort to get the writing back on track.
I have a story finished that I'm doing some heavy duty editing on. It won an Honorable Mention a few years ago in the Stroke of Midnight contest with the RWA Passionate Ink group, but I haven't sold it yet. I decided it still needed some work and that's what I've been doing this weekend. I am about half way through and I hope to have it ready for a beta read by the end of this coming week. So fingers crossed for me that it happens :-) After that, a few more fine tunes and I'll be submitting it. Whoo hoo!
The other project I worked on this week was a story for my other persona. I added about 2k words so that's not so shabby. I hope to finish this one asap as my publisher would love it!
Did I tell you that I subbed a romantic suspense novel of mine?? Go ME! Now the nail biting wait continues. I've been good - no obsessive checking of emails :-) We'll see.
So that's how I went. How did you go?
