ROW80 and Clockwork Angel giveaway

I had an OK week this week - I missed Wednesday - I was out all day for softball and teaching.
So for this week:
Sequel - 2,500 words
New WIP - 300 :(

Totals for the whole time:
Sequel are: 5,500
New WIP: 4,125

I'm not as far a long as I had hoped to be at this point. My job (though I love teaching) is time consuming. I keep telling myself that when it is summer vacation I will do more writing and make that "my job" for the summer.

Recently, a friend of mine on blogger, Kamol and I paired up and have become a support team for writing. I sent her my relatively polished manuscript and she is giving me feedback. We talk about our struggles, we encourage, we share knowledge and we try to relieve the pressure that we feel. I look forward to her email and appreciate the fact someone else knows how I am feeling. Do you have a group? a friend? or are you a lone wolf in the writing industry and why?

Also, I wanted to spread the word about a contest at Deranged Book Lovers. They are on their 6 month anniversary and are giving away a copy of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. Become a follower and support this awesome book blogging team!


  1. Awww, thank you for spreading words! We also have Almost-500 Followers Giveaway!, don't forget to enter while you're visiting!

  2. considering your work I think you've done well - always amazes me how people find the time to write as well as work - well done - keep smiling

  3. I would love to find another writer (who writes and enjoys the same kinds of books I do), to share feedback, etc.

    In my first five books (now published), I had two such persons, with divergent views, so I got unique feedback.

    Now I'm searching for someone like that for my two current WIPs.

    I'm glad you have that kind of input from someone.

  4. That's wonderful that you've found another writer friend to connect with and share your work with. I have a friend like that and it's great.

    It's tough balancing writing full time with writing. I'm jealous of your summer off! :)

  5. I'm so happy you did well this week! Thanks for all your encouragement! I'm glad we found each other :)

  6. Hope you have a good week this week. But I bet you are getting piled up with work at work as the school year is getting ready to come to a close. At least you have the summer vacation though. :) Have a great week!
