    Oh, I so have to get back to sprinting. It’s been a bumpy couple of weeks, but thanks for persevering with these, Cheryl!

    So sorry to miss today! The kids begged me to make cookies and I’m a softie. I promise I’ll get some editing done later, lol.

    Thanks,

    This week has been crazy! I heard from Siren and they’re going to put out Adam’s Act, the book I was working on in our sprints a few weeks ago, in October. I’ve been editing the next Cloud Canyon book and there are several missing scenes I need to write so I’ll be working on those in sprints, I hope.

    Welcome, Deb! Oh, these atmospheric videos are awesome!

    Thanks so much,

    JoMarie

    Oh, I’m in sprint withdrawal lol. The weekend flew and today we were getting the kids back into the remote-learning school swing of things. Frankly, I need a nap.

    Tomorrow I have an appointment but I’ll try to join a little bit later. Hopefully, Thursday and Friday may work better for me.

    Thanks for all you do,

    Pizza Hut, but yeah lol. I’m a New England girl and we have the best pizza there. But the kids like the Hut’s chicken nuggets and it was Wing Wednesday!

    Thanks for the heads-up about the later start time. I’m hoping to get some editing done with you all.

    I’ll try to make whatever days you decide, Cheryl. I have a writer friend who may be able to join us. Once you’re sure of the days I’ll let her know and then I’ll give you her name.

    Thanks so much for doing these!

    This was so great, Cheryl! I started with a goal of 5000 words for the week since it feels like forever since I’ve written new words. Writing on this current project only during our sprints, I wrote over 14,000 words in seven days! I sprinted for 2 hours on two days and then 1 hour each day from then on. Very cool. There is a kind of synergy there, and it was so great to focus.

    Thank you again,

    JoMarie

    Way to go, Cheryl! I’m about halfway through my Josie book, mostly from this week alone. I was just over 1000 words before Monday’s sprint and after today’s session I’m over 13,000.  Thanks so much for the SLAW, lol.

    I hope to sprint again tomorrow!

    Good morning!

    1. Your goal for the week: 5,000 words
    2. Your sprint time: evenings are best, I’m Eastern time zone
    3. The project you’re working on: My next Josie book, which has been gathering dust as I review and edit my upcoming releases
    4. The reward you’re going to give yourself when you smash your goal: an uninterrupted soak in the spa

    Thank you, Linnea! So sorry that I missed this workshop in “real-time,” but I gleaned so much great info from reading through the class notes and attachments. Also? Finders Keepers and Gabriel’s Ghost (an ARC!) are on my keeper shelf. Both autographed by you. Time to read about Trilby again, I think!
