Weekly Review #8

Yet another week come and gone.  I spent most of this week enjoying a head cold and a nasty spring snow storm; needless to say, not ideal creative environment.  The manuscript didn’t see as much progress as I would have liked.  Most of the work focused on streamlining the story and fixing massive continuity errors.  It is still a skeleton of a story, needing flesh and a heart by way of stronger descriptions and a dozen other things.

In short story land “Small Victories” was published by Soft Whispers.  I started work on a new short having to do with a dragon; now I need to figure out what to do with it, how to make it fresh and unique and not just another dragon tale.

A great week for life in blogsville, had some fun discussion with a few of the posts which always makes me happy.  Here is this week’s index:

Quickly Quotable #1

Favenhaven: Rise of the Evening Star (Book 2)

An Important Reminder: Backup your Work

Fear of the Semicolon

Lost in a Dream

Friday Fun – “The Islander” by Nightwish

“Small Victories” Published

Next week I hope to get back on track and dive back into the manuscript with some renewed vigor.  Now I’m getting into some serious story building I need all the kid free time I can get to get my focus in the right place.

Until Monday – Happy Writing!

      Just a spring flurry, didn’t even have to shovel it. I would love for my spring flowers to start popping up anytime now; I’m tired of the winter blahs.
