Low-flying dragons: Sunday #ROW80 check-in

So this week wasn’t an awesome, kick-butt writing week. I only managed to revise two chapters in a novella—but still, it’s progress. I have a ton of grading to do this semester, so I need to figure out how to finish grading papers and still have time to write.

It was a fun week. Friday I attended my cousin’s wedding, and Saturday I went to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire with the family. I bought some pumpkin spice tea and blueberry honey, so I feel ready for those chilly fall evenings when I can curl up with a good book and a cup of tea.

Writing: Edited two chapters in a novella.

Reading: It’s been a while since I’ve picked up a writing book, but I’m currently reading “Beautiful Demons” by Sarra Cannon. I just started it, but so far I like it. I also read “The Keepers: Sienna” by Rae Rivers this week and really liked it. It’s a free prequel novella, and I’m looking forward to reading more books in the series.

  1. 2 chapters is good!

    I’ll be the same way when Music Man start up on Thursday. Yo’ll figure it out. I believe in you.

    I approve of the dragon picture 🙂

  2. Since you’re adjusting to the new job, and it seems fairly labor-intensive, at least grading-wise, I’d say two chapters is pretty hefty progress.

    Add in a wedding and a Renaissance faire, and it sounds like you had a week filled with valuable work, creative pursuit, connection, and inspiration.

    Sometimes, it’s all in how you look at it… =)

      1. One of those odd weeks. Many words, but a bit distracted, too…natural, I guess, with my Accomplice having most of the week off…lots of time with him though. =D
