Good morning, everyone! It's supposed to be steaming hot today - a good day to stay inside and write. Anyone else up early?

Happy writing!

6:20 AM Central. More progress. I've been writing a 1 to 2 sentence synopsis of each scene. I'm about 5 chapters from the end now. I wish I'd written fewer scenes...

Good Morning! 
 :coffee3: :coffee3: :coffee3:
It's hot, here, too, JFriday!  Welcome, darshana!  AnneB, that sounds like something I should be doing. ;)
*squeezes eyes shut*
I'm bidding all of you a fond farewell for a month; we're going on a road trip, but I'll have my notebook with me, of course.
Happy writing, everyone, and I'll look forward to checking in on your progress!
With aloha,
Tori :palmtree

Thanks Tori, enjoy your road trip. Hope you get inspired.
I will have to find a substitute beverage, coffee makes me jittery.  :bewildered:
Finished my latest picture book lesson and created a dummy.
Time to get ready for work and get the kids up.
See ya tomorrow.

Tori, we'll miss you! Hi Anne! Darshana, welcome. I've been working on something different - submissions for Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Just finished #2. The first one is with my crit group.

Now back to kid writing!

Couldn't sleep this morning, since it's raining cats and dogs.  But a good walk always helps put my writing right especially poetry by counting out the footsteps. ::-)

Rise and Shine everybody. I spent thirty minutes browsing and commenting, now I'm awake enough to finish a chapter and hopefully write another one. It promises to be a scorcher here so I won't be leaving the house even if my car is air conditioned :)

Cathie! You are an inspiration. I've been up for about an hour, a few minutes past my 6 AM goal but I had a minor breakthrough doing morning pages so I'm happy I didn't skip them.

Good Morning Cathie, not sure what you mean by scorcher but reading what you wrote reminded me of the song "It's gettin' hot in here". 

Good Morning AnneB. Have fun with the breakthrough.

Onto to my second to last PB lesson, I am kind of sad I look forward to waking up to a new lesson every morning.  :writing3

Anne, good news about the minor breakthrough.

Darshana,  :lol5  you made me burst out laughing. I better learn to be clearer in my writing. Believe me, the book is not a scorcher. The outside temps are threatening three digits!

Drenching rain here this morning. Hoping it's a productive day for everyone! Tori's on her road trip; I hope she's having a great time and getting loads of ideas.

Anne, you're funny!

Off to make an extra-large pot of coffee (rainy mornings need extra cups) and start in!

Good Morning AnneB, here is to waking up before 6AM.  :bananadance

JFriday, hope the coffee is piping hot.  :coffee3: What I wouldn't give for some rain, it'll be 90 degrees again today.

Now I am off to do my cover letter. :oncomputer

Hi, JFriday, Cathie, Darshana. It's 5:58 AM here in Wisconsin, 56ยบ and partly sunny. Still making progress. Darshana, I read your website profile and I am impressed that you write with kids and a day job. TWO children and a day job.

Good Morning Anne, JFriday, and Cathy! Have a good writing day.
Anne thanks, making time is a challenge. I like checking in here every morning, it helps me get out of bed. I only hope I can keep up the EARLY RISER part once the kids' school starts.

Liz! I was just getting ready to send you a PM asking how the appointment went because you've been on my mind all day (just not when I was near a computer). It didn't occur to me that, duh, a sleep study would be at night.
