Sit Down and Write 4--Check-In

Hello, fellow writers and bloggers! I hope your writing is going well. In my case, I realized I made a critical error in planning this write-a-thon to start during the last week of the month. Why? Because I work at home as a virtual assistant and end of the month is always a scramble to make sure we have used all of our client's hours (most of them pay a retainer for so many hours per month). I had a lot of work and hours to do for my client so I was busy, busy, busy. writing on the novel AT ALL. I did write some blog posts and a couple of reviews, but that wasn't really what I wanted to focus on. However, I'm not going to get too bummed out. I still have this week. Plus, research, etc. is part of the writing process too. So, I'm doing some reading on writing. I purchased the book that J. Kay (Amateur Novelist) recommended, The Definitive Guide to Writing on Your Terms, Using Your Own, Honest-to-God, Gut-Wrenching Voice by Rebecca T. Dickson. I also purchased an online speed reading course that Amazon Local (one day left on this one) had a deal on for $29. I'm SICK of reading slow! It's the Iris Speed Reading Foundation Course. I so hope it works for me!

So tell's it going for you? Feel free to link up a progress post in the comments, or just tell me what you've been doing. I'll do my best to stop by if you post a link.

Good luck on the second week of SDW4!

  1. Keep us posted on the reading course! I need something like that.

  2. Things are going okay! I'm not getting as much accomplished as I had hoped for, but I am still crossing things off my list of things to do!

  3. Will do! I'm hoping to finish it up tonight, but it's yet to be seen.

  4. Here's my wrap-up post. I really enjoyed the challenge my first-ever writing challenge! Thanks for hosting it - I found it very helpful.
