This week has been spent editing the first two chapters of a novella I entered in a contest. I made it to the final round (yay!) and have an opportunity to edit it before progressing to the next round, but I only have a few days to do so. Add that to grading, class prep, etc., and it’s been a busy week.

That’s all I’ve managed to accomplish on the writing front this week. I did manage to write 3,532 words last week, so I am making progress.

Hopefully in the next few weeks I can find a way to balance writing and teaching and really get some work done on the Cabot Sisters series. I also want to get back into a blogging and social media routine. I try to visit three to five blogs a day, but that just hasn’t been happening lately. Please bear with me as I seek ever-elusive balance.

A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life. Click here to cheer on fellow participants!

What about you? How is your writing coming along? What projects are you working on? How do you find balance in your life?
