Amelia DeField Write a new chapter!

Daniel Escurel Occeno Continue editing, a forever task.

J Blair Brown Start my app for my new children’s book, “Leroy and the Legend – Children’s Book” – just got my first article in a local paper. Soooo excited!

Mduduzi Khoza I’ve gathered some information yesterday from a library at african art collection section, now I just have to begin with my story.

Lois Paige Simenson Work on my play revision.

Keianna Johnson I plan to write all day Wednesday and Thursday. I took time off to write.

Manda Rydberg Read through and edit my short story

Audrey Paulduro Went to the library and got a book called The Writing Clinic. Believing that this is a baby step towards something good 🙂

Lois Paige Simenson To survive a critique by well-known playwrights from NYC, CA and other states after a staged reading of my play, “Evacuation.” I want to receive the critique of my writing with cool, calm, professionalism, as it will be in front of a roomful of people from all over the U.S. and some from overseas 🙂

Daniel Escurel Occeno The 15th is my birthday so I decided to take a week off and just plot and plan my future. By the 16th however I might write on something. Today is the 15th here at the Philippines and why I know. I want to write on something.

Lois Paige Simenson Map out my strategy to revise my fictional memoir.

Meg Condie I’m revising a first draft of a novel. The goal is to have another 100 pages revised by the end of the week (crossing my fingers!)

Daniel Escurel Occeno With the Gubat Town Fiesta too much is going on this week, but I have a short story ready to make into an eBook. It sounds so much more stimulating than submitting it to a magazine or picture book publisher for consideration.

Hayley Dory Glasson Today will be a quiet day of writing at my favorite coffee shop drinking the best coffee as well, reading and being with pen and paper, my characters and story!

Nicole Lora Nisi I’m in the early stages of writing two novels simultaneously. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t try tackling this, but I have a lot of enthusiasm for both stories. My goal is to keep up that energy and inspiration!

Kimberly Bea My goal is to get my YA novel ready to pitch by the fall. Unfortunately, I have peaks and valleys when it comes to my confidence in my writing and I am at a low point right now.

Alex Willging Rewriting a novel manuscript from scratch after getting halfway through the first draft. It’s scary, but fun.

Hayley Dory Glasson Writing chapters for my first novel

Daniel Escurel Occeno Read my novelettes to edit.

Ed Gregory Goal: Revive symbiotic relationship with my somnolescent muse. We met nearly 50 years ago quite by accident. It was a heady and productive time – full of passion and power while it lasted. But we’ve both been slackers for far too long. This time, I’…See More

Keianna Johnson I have no writing plan this week



We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, ASAP. Thanks!
