July 17, 2010

After a strangely eventful week, I've finally made it here to update. Nothing really terrible, just sort of aggravating: a couple of new cavities on the boys reported by the dentist, a prescription for an iron supplement from my doctor, an afternoon long 3 county power outage that made me have to spend two days on the typical grocery trip. But now it's Saturday, and I'm happy to report that I got my critiques done in time for writer's group. I also survived the "hot seat" as they critiqued Dragonpox for me. I'm planning on setting this weeks $15.00 back in the hopes that I'll be able to spend it along with next week's when I finish Monday's "To Do List". I can't decide between red mulch and a new fountain critter for the fairy bed, so I figure that if I hold off I'll have enough for both. (Plus I REALLY just don't want to get back in the car any time soon.)
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm leaving you with a picture of a really neat flowering bush I picked up last year. The picture is from about a month ago, and I'll post an updated one on Monday so you can see how it's changed. I'll be back on Monday!


  1. So was the critique helpful? Do you like the group?

  2. I think the group is really good. They are a diverse group which is nice, and they had quite a few ideas on how to improve the story. I'm still considering which changes I want to try. I'm thinking that I want to write the whole thing in my wordy way and then make another version where I do I drastic word count cut to see if the story will stay in tact. I'm not sure when I'm going to start though. I've got a couple of things ahead of it on my To Do List. You should really see if you can participate through e-mail.
