Tracy Gerhardt-Cooper Plan my summer by blocking off research time, writing time, and fun time.
Sarah Myers Realized today I started research on a new project. Goal: to get back to working on said project since no intern job days this week.

Erin R. Smith Writing my outlines for the first chapter of my book, and to write a fanfiction story.
Destiny Pifer Started writing a romance story for an anthology. The key is being able to do it with my ten year old bothering me so thankfully he is going to Bible School during the evenings this week so that helps.lol

Jon Duckworth After 12K words for my current WIP, the body of the beautiful countess has been found, but the count’s body is missing. The rooms on the first floor of the estate are covered with blood spatter–a scene of carnage. On the second floor, a hatchet is found neat a busted trunk. The mayor worries about the reputation of his small town, and the officials started gathering the “usual” suspects. My goal is to develop the story further. The game is afoot.
Sandra de Helen Finish reading a poetry book or two. Write a new review of a poetry book and post it on the new website. Create and polish my presentation for the Writers Guild, which happens June 25th. Continue the car search. Also print off and mail a copy of my ARC to famous poet to blurb.

Pam Martin I have to finish a lesson plan on the Enlightenment by EOB tomorrow, to make small revisions to one about opposition movements. After that, I want to finish at least a couple of chapters in on ovel (I’ve postponed the other to July, as a Camp NaNoWriMo project.) I know it’s totally “do-able,” but I still feel like I’m drowning today! Hopefully, a cup of coffee will help with that.

Daniel Escurel Occeno To finalize the new ebook covers for those already self-published. Then self-publish some of my stories “live” with the new cover. Work on Height of Boys when possible.
