Glad to see you here, Dewsanddamps! Hi Darshana and JFriday.

I'm actually here this morning. It feels good in a befuddled early morning way.

I was at a writing conference all weekend, and now I'm back with a bunch of good ideas for both of my manuscripts. I'm going to finish my revision first and then dive back into my WIP in a few weeks.

Good to see so many of you are showing up and plugging away. Happy writing!

Hi Melissa - glad the conference was fruitful.

I'm here working on my first assignment for Kidlit Summer School - The Plot Thickens. Should be interesting as I'm realizing I need to do my research and get my characters more flushed out for my novel.

Gah, I forgot to check in again. Working on revisions this morning.

Went to Lake George, NY last weekend for my son's wedding - fun time! They were married (by his brother) outside with the lake in the background. The new Adorable was there, too. Beautiful bride, lovely setting, happy groom. What more can there be? :weddingcake

Oh, JFriday, there isn't much more, is there? What fun to have all the celebrations in the company of the Adorable!
Darshana, your school sounds like fun! MelissaK, there's nothing like having a renewed little burst of energy on the writing horizon, is there?
Happy writing, all!

Checking in. Mirrors, glad you got so much done on revisions. Melissa's post reminds me of how exciting conferences can be. That writing adrenalin after being with other writers all weekend is wonderful.

On to more revisions. Happy writing, everyone!

Congratulations JFriday!
Happy Writing.
Just working on my homework.
Sadly every attempt at drafting a new PB has fizzled out. I'm so much better with revisions.

To echo darshana, Happy Friday!
Darshana, I do feel your pain, honestly. This too, shall pass, as you well know, but it sure isn't fun in the middle, is it? :stuck
My CP sent me revision suggestions yesterday, so that's on my agenda (along with writing letters to the Adorables from the bunnies who live in our yard -- yes, JFriday, you can do this, too!)  :bunny2 :bunnyrun
and maybe, just maybe a new idea before it, too falls kerplunk!  :faint Aloha,
Tori :palmtree :pizza

Tori, that's such a cute idea!

Darshana, don't give up. It will come. Tori, good luck on those revisions - and a new idea or two.

Happy writing, everyone!

I'm here this morning. We've been moving this week, so I'm not getting a lot of writing time. I think we're out of the woods now, though.

Tori, I love that you write your grandchildren letters from the bunnies in your yard. JFriday and Darshana, glad to see you plugging away.

Just checking in and hoping everyone has a good week. I'll be off the grid starting tomorrow - going up to Maine with my sister and cousin. Spending some time on the coast and then out on an island in Casco Bay.

Happy writing week, everyone!

Melissa K - hope your move is all done.
JFriday - have fun on your trip. sounds totally chill.

I'm here just doing my homework. No new PB drafts in sight. The editor in my head needs to go on sabbatical.

I'm here and ready to work. Anybody else?

Maine was great. Some of it was for research, at least that's what I told myself. Tori's busy with the Adorables. What fun!

Anyone else  :writing3 or is it all play in mid-August?

 :beach :palmtree :vacation :trailer :sailboat :airplane   Did I miss anything? Oh - and for Tori -  :babygirl :stroller :horse :soccer
