Ooo, a contest! Good luck JFriday!   :goodluck

I had a busy writing-related weekend updating the conference info on my website, preparing a post on a friend's book launch and getting out the Houston SCBWI newsletter. And while we were at a fly-in (plane show) :plane  I had some good ideas on a troublesome piece of the plot for the wip I'm working on. Today I get to write for reals.

Good morning. Today I will be trying to resist the urge to revise Act 1  :no and move forward into Act 2. Revision is more fun.

Good morning. I got in about an hour of writing this morning before I had to get the family up. I probably won't get back to it until this afternoon. Happy writing, everyone!

Glad to see everybody! We're finally having a bit of lovely not-steaming weather here, I'll probably be writing outside later this morning. Enjoy your writing day!

Good morning!
Ah, JFriday, I didn't write outside because my new next-door neighbor decided such a beautiful day should be used to mow the lawn and use the leaf-blower.  :gaah  However, I did meet my critique partner for lunch at an outdoor cafe, so it all worked out.
Luv2eatreadwrite, you are brave!  Good luck on your contest!  :goodluck

Didn't get up early enough to be an Early Bird and I've never been a Night Owl, so I guess I am an Afternoon Tea lady. Actually a coffee I worked through. My character has set on a quest to find something so I'm on a whole new adventure. Or maybe she is. Either way, I've given up for the night.
This time zone thing always confuses me.

I had good intentions this morning, but saw there is a typhoon hitting India today. I sponsor two girls in east India through an organization called Compassion, and I spent the early morning tracking the storm and then writing letters to both of them. Looks like one will be in the northern spirals of the storm and the other south of it. I hope those who are in its path are all safe.

JFriday, I hope your girls are ok. I haven't seen the news yet this morning.
It's a nice quiet morning here, time for some peaceful writing.

Good morning, all!  We're back from our trip and I'm ready to put my shoulder to the wheel again.  I signed up for PiBoIdMo for the first time, so we'll see what happens.
I'll bet we're all waiting for the time change so we can sleep in a bit later and still get some writing done, yes?
Happy writing, all!
Aloha,
Tori :palmtree

Tori, I hope you get great ideas from PiBoIdMo! I thought about Nano, but only fleetingly - I'm in the final stages of polishing a YA and I HAVE to finish it.

So guess what I'm doing...

Happy Writing, all!

Well, it was a bit easier to get up early this morning! But brrrr - it was cold out when I walked the dog!

I hope everyone has a successful day today! Off for coffee, then  :oncomputer before I leave for work.

It's good to see so many posts here gain! I'd hoped to finish a draft of my WIP in October but had to stop for revisions on another project. I'll get it done this month.  :crossedfingers

Haha Tori! Well, I'm afraid I didn't train very well. At one point I wrote a scene instead of paying attention to the speaker. But it's a really good scene!

Happy writing, all!
