My Week in Review and Writing Links

Hello everyone. Happy Friday. I hope you’ve all been safe from the hurricane hitting the US east coast this week. We’ve certainly seen some extremes of weather in 2018.

This week, I got lots of writing done and had fun working a short story out of one scene from my novel, The Glade. I completely reworked one scene and have a short story in 5 scenes at 600 words each, making a 3000 word story in total, and it has a whole different twist and resolution … it’s still thriller/suspense, though ๐Ÿ™‚ In addition, I have loads of ideas in the works.

I love this week’s quote from J K Rowling, and I love what I did with it in Photoshop even more, lol ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it from me. Have a wonderful weekend, and here are this week’s writing links. Take a look at the video from Nicholas Rossis’ website; it’s a good bit of fun for a Friday!

    I’ve had fun taking a short story from a book. The Glade is at the top of my reading list. Perfect time of year for it!

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Sure is, Denise, with halloween just around the corner, lol! Can’t believe how fast time is going. Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Joan Hall says:

    Oh, that’s a great idea. I’ve never thought about doing that. Have a great weekend!

    • Harmony Kent says:

      And from that, I have an ideal for a whole novel, which I’m building now. Am actually doing some rough planning instead of pantsing the whole thing, lol. I never would have thought of it either, but a course I’m doing used it as one of its tools … so cool ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend too!

  3. CS Boyack says:

    Sounds like you’re all powered up and moving forward.

  4. Jan Sikes says:

    What a cool thing to do with the short story from The Glade. That is the beauty of words. We can move them around, change them, remove them or add to them and it can take the story in a whole new direction. Kudos to you!

  5. Staci Troilo says:

    Great links and great quote, but dang! That’s a great graphic.

    I’m glad the words are flowing for you. That’s great news. Happy weekend!

  6. I love that saying, a pity JK thought of it first!

  7. Mae Clair says:

    It sounds like you’ve had a productive writing week, Harmony. You can’t ask for better than that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Friday!!

  8. Sue Coletta says:

    Thanks for the shout-out, Harmony. Love the graphic! I’m envious that you got a lot of writing done this week. “Life” kept blocking me from the keyboard. Don’t you hate when that happens? Anyway, hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Thanks, Sue! Itโ€™s a great post for sharing. Yep, I hate when life gets in the way. Hope youโ€™re having a good weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š
