We also missed out on participating in Banned Books Week (it was last week). To learn more about Banned Books Week and censorship (in case you missed it too) click THIS LINK (where you'll find a short list of the most challenged titles of 2010) . To learn even more, click RIGHT HERE.
And our list of forgets doesn't stop there.
Whoops. We forgot about the Tuesday Status Report for #WS4U this week! (Writer's Support 4 You via Facebook).
*Christy's considering starting an OctoNano this Saturday. From Oct 8-Nov 30 there are 50 days. So, 1,000 words per day = a 50k novel.
50K IN 50 DAYS.
She's trying to convince erica this would be a great thing to do.
ANYONE ELSE INTERESTED IN TAKING THE CHALLENGE?
Is there anyone else who thinks NANOWRIMO sounds awesome, but is just not ready to commit to that this year? If so, I'd totally come up with rewards/prizes/something to motivate you.
LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!
*Christy's scrapped another 4-6 queries. And then wrote 3 more. And then she (re)read Mary Kole's post "Overthinking the Query". Um. Yeah.
*Christy's having the worst school year in her 12 years of teaching. She has students in her class that she is having a difficult time managing and feels like a failure. She cries and is exhausted.
*She is behind on critiquing a beta's ms and is feeling guilty and, again, like a failure. And she's behind on grading. And figuring out the new online grading system.
(And she didn't mean for this to become a pit party post. Sorry about that.)
*Christy just wants to write. Writing makes her feel better. She has no time to write. Although, on the plane to and from Colorado (her brother-in-law got married over the weekend), she read City of Ashes and enjoyed it. The break from reality was MUCH needed.
*Erica is also having a not-wonderful school year. I don't think she cries about it though.
*Erica is polishing her ms.
*Erica is considering taking notes to create new characters and a new plot for Christy's OctoNano. And she's watching the Brewers. Who rock.
That about sums it up for this week (and, um, last).
