#Row80 Update 7-24-11

Sunday, July 24, 2011



Happy Sunday, everyone! This has been a pretty good week. I finished my run-through of Light and Dark and was really happy to see the last third of the book was much stronger than I thought. As I said on Twitter, it doesn't suck. Yay!

All the chapters are ready to go to the critique partner, and I'm about halfway done with her changes. I'm in good shape to have the first full edit done by September.

As for The Prophet, I took more notes and started character worksheets. Have to say, I'm really excited about this book, especially the villan. As dark as Light and Dark's bad guy is, The Prophet will trump him. He's even more twisted and disturbed.

I've also been doing well with my blog posts. Exceeded my goal of at least three this week and gained several new followers. The SheWrites Blog Hop has been a lot of fun and a great way to meet new bloggers.

I want to give some shoutouts to my blogger friends this week. Huge thanks to Tiffany White at Tiffany White's Ooo Factor. She gave me some great linkage in her Friday post, and I can't thank her enough. If you haven't been to her blog, check it out. Tele-Tuesday and What to Watch Wednesday are two of my favorites.

If you're still deciding on Google+, check out Amber West's A Day Without Sushi. Her post on Google+ is full of great information.

One of my favorite posts this week was from Jenny Hansen at More Cowbell. Remember to appreciate the little things in life and not get caught up in the stress of the writing world.

Last but not least, drop by my good friend Catie Rhodes blog, Full-Tilt Backwards Boogie. Her freaky Friday posts are always full of shivers and chills.

How did you guys do with your #Row80 goals this week? What were some of your favorite blog posts?

Thanks for posting up some interesting links. I'll have to check them out.

The villain for The Prophet sounds promising! I do love me a twisted and disturbed bad guy. ;)

It definitely is. My critique partner has been a tremendous help, and the fact that she is enjoying it gives me confidence.
Thanks!

Wow, what a great check-in. Congrats all around. Your bad guys sound very interesting. They are so fun to write. The only thing better than a super bad guy is an even better good guy. Keep it up! Looking forward to next post.

Glad your goals are rolling along. Light and Dark is a good book. I always look forward to seeing your chapters in my inbox.

Thanks for the mention! :D

Thank you! I love writing bad guys, lol. I guess it's because I'm so fascinated by psychology.

Catie
Thanks. So happy you're enjoying the book. And you're very welcome:)

Are you on G+ yet? I tried to add you to my circle this morning, but there are lots of Stacy Greens. I keep saying I'm going to wait until fall to deal with this G+ stuff, but I keep getting sucked into checking it out.
