Monday Miscellany

This is truly a MISCELLANY: 
  • My ROW80 goals for the week. 
  • Mike Jung & Nan Marino. 
  • Veterans' Day.
Next Post: In The Throes of Thursday I'll share what I've learned about PACING.

Last week didn't produce the results I'd hoped for in my ROW80 challenge. Truth? It didn't produce anything I'd set out for myself. I'm still at around 41,000+ words with some scenes that are looking for a reason to exist. I doubt they'll find it. Still I'm not giving up. Here's my goals for next week:

1. Finish the short story for 2009 Debs Ebook anthology.
2. Write at least 1,000 words on my WIP.
3. Find the top of my desk.
4. Find that pair of Sexy Butt Jeans that Kait Nolan, another ROW80 blogger, just reminded me I should be wearing.

Mike Jung gave a great presentation about Social Media on Saturday. One of the best comments he made was that in building an authors' network on the media, it's more important to remember you're connecting with people than it is to create a BRAND identity. Thanks, Mike. I needed that.

Mike, Me and One of Our Favorite Books by Nan Marino

Me: I Want This Book. Mike: No Way.

Ann Nesbet and Me--Remind me where I put my glasses.

Remembering my dad today and my grandfather--both veterans--both people who sacrificed a lot for their country, but never complained. Remembering all of the veterans and giving thanks for what they've done to keep us free.
