Sit Down and Write Wrap-Up


Do you ever just feel like sitting and crying?  That is about how I feel right now.  I had such high hopes for this write-a-thon.  I really thought I was going to make some awesome progress on my novel.  Unfortunately, I was incredibly busy with work and then being a mom and spending about 4 hours a day in the car picking up and dropping off said kids.  By the time the day was done, I was exhausted.  Now, on top of all the disappointment of the past week, I have a bunch of personal crap going on that just may prove disastrous for my family.  Of course, I'm not giving up because I believe in staying positive.  I will not give up on my novel.  I'm just going to have to realize that writing it in a month is just not going to work for me.

So, how did you all do?  I will at least take great comfort knowing that you all were able to get your writing accomplished...whatever that writing was.  Share your wrap-up posts in the linky below.  You have until Tuesday, August 28 at 10:00am CST to wrap-up and be eligible for the giveaway.  I'd like to thank everyone who joined me this week and I apologize that I wasn't as present as I should have been.

I am considering hosting another write-a-thon in the coming months so let me know in the comments if you would be interested and what month would be good for you.  Thanks!

  1. Oh, that's too bad, Michelle, but sometimes life gets in the way. But, I really hope everything will end up well for you in your life, and you'll do some work on your novel when you can :)
    I did manage to complete my goal, but reviewing is definitely easier then writing, so thanks for hosting the write-a-thon, and I will definitely participate again.

  2. Good for you! Staying positive is so important. My super crazy week was the week before this event. As far as another write-a-thon, I'll be there if you host it! :)

  4. Hey, Michelle. Don't feel bad about not reaching your goals. I wasn't able to meet mine either due to both to family issues and health issues. Sometimes, other things in our life will have to take priority and I guess we just need to roll with the punches when that does happen. Above all, don't get discouraged and stay positive. It may take longer to achieve what you want, but you will get there!!

    I'll go work on my wrap-up and link up!

    Thanks so much for hosting, Michelle! It was a good idea, and I'd be happy to join again if you ever decide to host another one!

  5. I forgot to comment on what month for the next write-a-thon. I always have reviews that need to be written so, honestly, any time is a good one, LOL!

    Since October is the FrightFall Read-a-Thon, maybe sometime in November would be good before we all get busy with holiday stuff in December. We might find ourselves more inspired to get caught up on our writing before year-end!

    1. I was thinking the same thing, Darlene. I think it will definitely be November. Thanks for your encouraging words in your earlier comment too. I really appreciate it!

  6. Hey, Michelle, I forgot to let you know that any month would do for me, although I agree November would be great :) but I thought maybe it can last longer, like 10 days or maybe even 2 weeks, so we can have more time for writing & reviewing :)

  7. I only managed to complete half of what I originally aimed for but it doesn't matter 'coz I got to write a lot more than my usual speed! I will definitely participate in future write-a-thons! <3

I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam so I'm afraid it's unavoidable.

Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated!
