Well, now. I decided to partake in a 10 week romance writing workshop with writer Leigh Michaels, which should basically last the entire remainder of this round of ROW 80. It was something I agonized over for a little while, as I wasn’t sure I was ready for a commitment like this, but at the last minute I decided to go for it. She was one of my first writing mentors, about 8 years ago, and I am looking forward to working with her again very much. This shouldn’t affect my goals for ROW 80 too much; I’m still going to be writing, and I still VERY much want to finish this novel by July. But I’ll have a few things to do on top of that, because I also want to put my all into this class.
I finished making my schedule, and surprised myself by finding quite a bit of writing time in my day. I fell behind a bit with my word count because before last night, I didn’t have those times carved out, but now, I look forward to using them to their full extent :).
This weekend, I have lunch and a workshop with Julia Quinn, and next month is the CTRWA’s annual Fiction Fest.
