Work-In-Progress: 33,533 words

Things got a little dismal toward the end of last week--on Thursday I only managed about 300 words while my daughters didn't try quite hard enough not to talk to me in the bookstore cafe... But then I retreated. Here's my vlog:

I think I look kind of nervous in this vlog--is it because I'm writing the MIDDLE of the novel now?!?!?


  1. Did you get a haircut? So cute!! A writing retreat? Is that what it sounds like? You go off somewhere just to write? It sounds like it was with other people. Is that to help split the cost or to be around to brainstorm and critique? Way to go on a great week.

  2. Thanks, Debbie! I did get a new haircut. It was fun to write with others. We ended up sitting around the big dining room table in the condo (we got it cheap, cheap, cheap, but it was really nice), typing all day. It motivated me to keep working since everyone else was working hard.

    I liked doing a retreat because I didn't feel guilty about neglecting anyone. Plus, it's nice to hang out with other writers : )
