But I have made a good start on one of my other goals. I've made a committment to do a project or two for Romance Junkies, which I'll post about when I have it set. Suffice it to say, I'm very excited and glad that Cat has the opportunity available!
I'm hoping to get teach day restarted next week but for now, I'll be working on my other goal of writing and working. Then it's tax time. Those things WILL get done, daggnabbit.
A friend at eHQ, during a really great craft discussion on the Writing Blaze page said something particularly stirring about keeping the story from lagging and maintaining the tension by working on the characters fears. It's not something new--Internal conflict, "Trample, Trample, Trample" after all--but it's something I deeply needed reminding of. They're doing some writing exercises and some Golden Hearts valuing, lol. (I'd comment, but as I don't do contests for the very reasons they're mulling, I'm not really a voice of any knowledge.) Might be worth peeking in for you.
As for me, I'll head over there a bit later. I'm going to go poke my hero in the eyes a few times. :)
