Wednesday Writing Goals~Start Anew

My goal last week was to finish the final rounds of editing on the project I was working on, and I did! *throws confetti and dances in it* Finally I feel as though I've broken free of the undertow and am starting to rise above water. Now I can relax and get ready for my release celebration and tour for Rise of a Rector coming up next week.

I've been MIA a bit on the blog scene lately because I've had a lot to do domestically as well, what with moving to a new house and working on selling the one we're currently in. Plus, the holidays are coming, fast. Hang on to your pocket books peeps, it's just around the corner. But before that craziness starts I'm embracing my favorite holiday of all, Halloween! My tour for Rise won't be like most tours, of course there will be stops at other blogs and interviews, but here on my blog I'll be taking part in some Halloween fun. Check back next week for more on that.

As for reading goals, I've been going slow because of the editing I've been buried under. I finally got to start reading The Help though and wow, just wow. This book is a MUST read. How about you, did you make your writing goals last week? What about reading goals?

  2. Eep. The thought of moving still gives me the hives. I moved I think 7 or 8 times. I've lost count. Congrats on getting those goals!

    1. That sounds like about how many times I've moved. I love it though, change is good! And hopefully this move will be the last. Aside from retirement in Hawaii. ;)

  8. I'm so behind on my writing goals, but that's partly because I came up with a SNI, and have to do a lot of research before I can start plotting and working on characterizations. Plus, I doing an experiment, which I'll be blogging about soon.

    Good luck on achieving this week's goals, Heather.
