My Week in Review and Writing Links

Hello everyone. Happy Friday! Last week, we had a lovely relaxing time away, and apart from the first weekend, we got lucky on the weather. Below is a picture I took while day-visiting Dartmouth.

I’ve had a tired but productive week and have finished a 5000 word short story. I also have the beginnings of a novel, but that will be a slow work project, not a 15-day one this time, lol. Slow and steady is my motto at the moment. My plan is to do a bit on the novel while also writing flash fiction and short stories. The Switch is on hold but not forgotten. That’s another one of my many pots simmering on the back burner. This week’s quote seemed perfect for me, as I am learning new writing techniques. We’re never too old to learn! And, joy of joy, I have tons of ideas percolating away. It’s just getting the time to write them all down! 🙂 

That’s it from me for now. Here are this week’s writing links:

Sounds like a great week, Harmony! Congrats on finishing the short and how exciting to have so many ideas percolating. Ah, the life of a writer. I like your motto = slow and steady. I am going to try that. 🙂

That quote is so true Harmony! I love your picture from Dartmouth. I love when the ideas are free flowing:) Have a great weekend.

Your vacation sounds lovely. The photo is idyllic. But I’m glad you’re back with us!

Thanks for the links. And good luck with the WIPs. Slow-and-steady sounds like a great plan.

It looks like you had a beautiful day in Dartmouth, Harmony.
Congrats on finishing the short story and also on the start of the new novel. I’m still excited about the premise of The Switch and will be looking forward to that one too, when you’re ready to release it.
Enjoy your Friday and your weekend!
