The Bridge to Success

For the last two (or maybe three) rounds, I haven’t participated actively in ROW 80.

But I haven’t been idle.  Slowly but surely I’ve been reworking (editing, rewriting, tweaking) Interior Designs, and I’m posting snippets every week for Sweet Saturday Samples.

This morning, I finally finished!  I think it really is complete…

So now I’m ready to go back to Defining Moments, which still needs more editing, polishing, etc.

Where we left off at my last round, I had sent both WIPs out to Beta readers, and I’ve been putting that input to use in my editing process.

For this next round:

1)  Spend 30 minutes a day editing Defining Moments;

2)  Post snippets on Sweet Saturday samples;

3)  Prepare to publish Interior Designs, which will include resuming conversations with my publishing consultant at Create Space;

4)  Interact with others within the challenge and support the efforts of other participants.

  1. Sounds like a plan! Great goals. I agree, this group helps, it keeps me in line. I really missed everyone and am glad to be back. Your goals are definitely the kind I would love to aim for. Happy writing!

    1. Yes, without the challenge, it felt as though I were working in a vacuum…I really need the support!

      Thanks for stopping by, Wendy, and good luck!

  2. Welcome back! :) It’s sounds like you’ve been busy and got a lot accomplished.

    CreateSpace has publishing consultants?

    1. I guess that there are several different layers to Create Space, and when a writer “buys” a package (and there are several available), the person who arranges and guides the writer through the process is the publishing consultant.

      I don’t know anything about the free format; I only used the package deal. When I published my first five books, Create Space was Book Surge, but this time around, I’m already “consulting” with someone at Create Space.

      Thanks for stopping by, Lauralynn, and enjoy your next round.

  3. GOOD LUCK! and congrats on finishing! such a great feeling. :)

    1. Thanks, Ashelynn, glad you could stop by. Have a great round!

  4. Nice to see you back.

    30 minutes a day, every day, can be challenging, but I’ll bet as you get back into this, and see your work shaping up, you’ll accelerate.

    1. I try to keep the goals small enough that I can achieve them; if I exceed them, so much the better. Thanks for visiting, Camille, and enjoy your creating.

  5. It is that interacting with others which needs the fine balance. Do it too much and you don’t have anything left to write with. Do it too little and you start talking to the wall.

    See you around over the next 80 days.

    1. I completely agree, Gerhi. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck in the next round.

  6. Welcome back to ROW80! Your goals sound super manageable – good luck on them. See you on the check ins!

    1. Thanks, Dahnya…I’ll be checking out your posts, too.

Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
