Hi All, I am here this morning. Have a PB revision due for my critique group and need to get my query letters done in the coming week. So I should be here more often than.

Happy Writing  :typing

I have been on vacation and my writing schedule has gone all catawampus, but it's back to work for me next week. I am going to try very hard to make that mean "back to a regular writing routine" as well. Glad to see some good research, writing, and revising going on in this group while I've been lazing away.  :vacation

Good to see you both. Darshana, best of luck with that revision. MVP, I hope you're all refreshed from your break.

Off to write.

Kid is better and I got up and wrote this morning.  :typing Didn't get a ton done, but I'm okay with that. I figure re-establishing the schedule is the important thing at the moment.

Good luck with those revisions and queries, darshana! Melissa, happy writing to you too!
#885 - June 02, 2015, 07:05 AM

Looks like I'm back to dawn owlness. That's staying up till two to pen longhand my next chapter book. At least now I can use that time more efficiently I hope.

Looks like you're getting back into the swing of things, MVP.

I'm getting here every day, but my writing sessions keep getting cut short for various reasons. Feeling like I've accomplished nothing this week. Maybe today is my day.

Happy writing, everyone! :writing3

I just started on a longer story outside of my normal rhythm. (I tend to do more two page stories, and this one was roughly a two page story.) But definitely back into the night shift.

I'm having to balance between writing and illustrating though. Before switching to longhand, I was stuck in this illustration made. Maybe partly as I draw traditionally than on a tablet.

I'm tired. This early morning schedule is wearing me down a bit. Wish I could be a night owl, but my brain refuses to cooperate. Nevertheless, I'm here, so I suppose I should stop complaining and go write.

Darshana, it sounds like you've been getting a lot done. Cheers!

Good Morning Melissa!
Now that summer break is here, the kids are staying up later which means I'll have to be diligent about getting stuff done in the morning. Too pooped.
Ended up only got other peoples critiques done last night.
Now on to my stuff this morning.  :typing
