Susan Bowman I’m going to send that letter to my publisher regardless of how nervous I am that he’ll say no for the third time to my request for a re-publication date.

Destiny Pifer I am working on a horror story that I hope I can finish by the Saturday deadline.
Karen Hemmerle To be okay with having to delay my screenplay delivery by a week because I got hurt Sat night and my right shoulder, arm, and ribcage hurt like allllll the bad words. … Goal 2: Learn to type better with only my left hand.
Robert Szeles Finish the first revision of a new Rogues of Merth story, push along the first draft of another story to the point where I know it’s going to make a complete story.

Tom Moser Flesh out my outline for a new book. More submissions.
Lois Paige Simenson Entered 7 contests for feedback, so taking a break from revising to go live life on a trip to Eastern Europe for next 2 weeks. Goals are to write in my travel journal to use for another book in my travel series

Wajdi Luigi Bugattas I really hope to write five hundreds words….
Deborah Lyn Stanley Final and post three articles.
Destiny Pifer I want to start writing more then just a Drabbles but it’s so hard because my son won’t let me write. He’s very attention seeking.
Bill Kelly I’m hoping to get back to the five to ten thousand word pace. I’m writing a bit right now and taking a break to look at Facebook. I’m still having a bad time physically and emotionally, but at least I’m making a little progress.
Tom Moser More queries for my 1st novel. Also started the outline on a new book, so fleshing that out is my other goal.
Nita Sweeney Working my way through the “to-do list.” It’s mean, cruel, and it doesn’t like me.

Tom Moser Query submissions started yesterday so I’m going to keep doing that. It’s tedious work but I’ve already gotten two manuscript requests, so that’s hopeful!
Sarah Glenn Finish edits to ebook, possibly work on print version of WIP. Answer queries from authors. Do all this while the drama llama cavorts with the family.
Karen Hemmerle Keep working on my screenplay which is due Aug 28. It’s a superhero origin story about a 37 year old female professor who becomes a literal superhero and saves humanity. It’s exciting without being violent. No boys beating each other up.
