Welcome Helen! Have some coffee. :coffee3

I wasn't feeling sleepy tonight so I started revising. Discovered a continuity error that's going to be a pain to fix. Suddenly I'm exhausted.  ::)

Good night! See you all in the morning, I hope!

Welcome back, Darshana! MVP, sorry to hear about your continuity error. That kind of revision can be so annoying. Hope yours turns out to be easier than you thought. 

I'm checking in.

I'm going to be at a conference the next few days, so I don't expect to hang around here much. Happy writing to all of you while I'm gone!

My conference was awesome but also exhausting, and I'm just now starting to get back into the swing of things. Hope you're all plugging along too!

Glad you had a good time, Melissa! What was the conference about?

I have done pretty well this week at getting up to write but I keep forgetting to check in. My brain can only handle so much at 6:00 a.m., I guess. Hope everyone has had a productive week! TGtomorrow'sF

Glad you're chugging along, Miriam. Checking in here isn't exactly the highest priority. :)

I was at my local SCBWI conference here in Western Washington, so it was about children's books and writing. There was a lot about diversity in children's books this year. I've been attending every year for five years or so, and it's always awesome.

Happy writing, everyone!

Happy writing, everyone! I'll be dillying and dallying with a shiny new (aren't they all, till we begin serious revising?) pb idea!
Have a great weekend, too, fellow-scribblers!

Another day. Another morning writing session starting slightly later than I meant it to. Off to write while I have the chance!

It's been a mixed bag this weekend.
Yesterday I spent the entire musing and sourcing out venues to rest my pen and paper on. There are a lot of potential coffee shops I could become accustomed to. Ironically, the one that I am most drawn to is a chocolate shop (one the retails the product not made from it). I spent two hours there today. I spent that time to mull over how my characters are best able to overcome and transportation dilemma and check out the cocoa competition.
What better way to spend a Sunday? Which, as luck would have it, is exactly that.

Glad you had a good Sunday, Thunderingelephants. That chocolate shop sounds like a nice place. (A shop made from chocolate would be pretty awesome, though. Let us know if you ever find one of those.)

Checking in.

Waiting to get a pb manuscript back from my critique partners with (probably) all of my darlings killed. I was unplugged for a week with renovations in my house - when I got back on the boards, there were pages and pages of new posts! I couldn't even get through all of them.

Back to work. Happy writing, all!

Checking in, and yes, Melissa, all went well yesterday -- thank you! :) I hope your day goes well!
Hope to get some  :writing3 today. JFriday, did you read Anne Lamott's post on her 61st birthday?  One sentence read: "Everything will work again if you unplug it for a while, including you." Love that. I'm trying to do that for a period of time each day, and it's not that easy!

Happy writing, everyone!

Hi Everyone,
Sorry to be missing, it's been an intense two weeks at work and home. Luckily things seem to be calming down. Haven't been writing but am starting to catch up on past webinars and will start working on my query letters and new PB ideas.

Happy Writing!

Good morning, everyone!

Today is writing, but from the  :bunny2 :bunny2 who live in our yard to our Adorables....yes, I am certifiable!  Maybe I will have time to mull over the new pb idea. I hope everyone else has a great day!

Checking in with a new WIP! I'm excited to see how it develops this week.

Glad to see such good things happening while I was MIA.  Here's to Darshana's conference and Tori's Adorables.  :stars3 :stars3

Oooh, a new WIP. I'm jealous, MVP.

I got off track for a few days, but I'm showing up for roll call today.
