erica and christy joined a facebook writing support group (can be found on twitter #WS4U). a recent suggestion suggested (lovely writing skills) we do weekly status updates each tuesday. we loved the idea, so here we are posting our very first.
but before we get to that, we'd like to extend a HUGE bouquet of thank yous (thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, etc) to all of our followers and commenters. we say that way too infrequently. but hope very much you know how much we appreciate your visits, whether they're frequent or not.
we'd also like to welcome all new followers we've met recently through the Campaign. thank you thank you to you also.
we appreciate the support ALL of the above mentioned people have given us in the distant and recent past. writing would be way more difficult without each of you.
and now for our status updates.
before school started i was editing hard-core to prep for WOC. (the wip i'm working on is a ya contemporary entitled FIXING SHELBY.) editing has added 2k so far. based on cp comments and inklings of my own, i needed to add in more backstory explaining my protag's resentment toward her "best" friend.
since WOC? standstill. my status update includes editing three more chapters, critiquing a few chapters for friends, bloghopping (still way less than I need to), camping and doing laundry.
goals for the week: edit 7 more chapters. send ten more chapters to cps. critique more chaptes for cps.
i'll let you know next tuesday how i do with that!
um, well. *whistles* *shuffles feet* *does laundry and dishes, feeds and bathes children, mops floors, mows lawn, watches sick hubby who insists his cold is somehow leading to bubonic plague which will kill him and I'll feel so bad after he's dead that all I did was give him DayQuil and a box of Kleenixes while I went to work* um, yeah, that.
