Welcome, Tara S. to this crazy crew!  JFriday, I hope you got some good writing done yesterday -- even though it was a Thursday! ;)
I'm toiling over a YA revision that I swore was in the drawer forever.  :embarrassed3
Happy writing, all!
Aloha,
Tori :palmtree

Thanks Tori! I wasn't sure how productive I'd be, since I'm usually more of a night writer, but I just finished 532 words. That's a pretty good start. I could write more, but then I'd be late for work, so I'm off to get ready now. I hope everyone has a great Friday!

Any night owls up tonight?  :neck Since it's the weekend, I thought I'd get some late night writing in, instead of early morning. It's 1:30AM my time and the inspiration hit just as I was getting ready to go to bed. It's so weird how that happens sometimes. Anyway, no early riser for me tomorrow! :yay

Hope you got some good writing in, Tara S! I'm up and trying to wrestle with a synopsis of  my YA revision.  Oh, fun!  Need more  :coffee3: :coffee3: :coffee3: Then, it's off for regular Sunday schedule!
Happy writing, everyone.

Good morning! Coffee's brewing and after a conference critique yesterday I have to rethink the opening of a novel. I think I'll need some  :coffee3: for that one.

More revision of synopsis today....

Already worked more on my novel opening this morning and printed out a portion to take to my day job. I'll try to snatch a few minutes for it now and then. Hope everyone has a productive day!

I set my alarm for six this morning and woke up at 8:30...sheesh. I've always been more of a night owl, guess there's no trying to change that (though I probably should try harder, considering I have an 8 a.m. class). On the plus side, creative epiphanies tend to reveal themselves to me at night.

Oh, and hello, all Early Risers and Night Owls! I'm a newbie 'round here.

May the writing gods be with you today!

Hi, All,

Good morning from Controlled Chaos -- we're babysitting the Adorables -- our one-year-old grandson and five-year-old granddaughter, so, guess what I'll be doing each morning this week!

Happy writing!
Aloha,

Oh, Tori, enjoy the Adorables!

I've been up and editing and already sent something off for crit group this weekend. And I haven't even had coffee yet!!

...and this always makes me think of my sister and me when we were young... :slap

I've been here most mornings, just haven't posted. I work a bit on something and then print it out and take it to work to tweak it a bit more when there are down times. Off for more  :coffee3: . Have a lovely day, all! Tori, are the adorables still with you?

Good morning!  :coffee3:
We left the Adorables last week, but....(drum roll)...they come here tomorrow!! Woohooo! (of course, with their parents!).
I'm still working on PiBoIdMo -- the most I've gotten from it is that so  many of my existing pbs need major work, not to mention the new ideas!  Never-ending saga! JFriday, you and your sister didn't *really* pull each other's hair, did you?  :mademe
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Aloha,

You all are so good!  I've done a little here and there, but I keep forgetting to check in in the morning.  Been spending time in Revisionland lately since I went back to a story I wrote 2 years ago, but never revised. I'm kicking myself for not sticking with it back then, I could have had it done by now.  :beating  Oh well! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Happy December all, a few days late! Got my  :coffee3: so now  :hiding oh no, wait, I mean  :oncomputer
#472 - December 04, 2013, 03:41 AM

Hi all!
I'm still new around here. I tried to hop on the Early Risers train, but completely failed. I've embraced the fact that I am a night owl, so here I am. It's 10:30, and I'll probably be writing for the next few hours. To those of you who can wake up early and can find your inner creative genius, I salute you.

Good morning! Had a snow day yesterday; nice to have the day off.  :winter This morning it was all icy when I took the dog out. Ugh. Worst thing about winter is the ice. Going to sneak in some more writing time before I'm off to work.

Got my  :xmastree up this weekend! Yay!

Happy writing, all!

Hi all! I should have stopped by earlier. I've been at it for 2 hours already. Woke up a 4:30 AM with PB lines poking me. Stayed in bed for a full 30 minutes longer, but couldn't take it anymore. Had to open up that Word doc and get 'em down.
Good morning, everyone!
