Works In Progress

It seems like a good time for a work in progress post.  I am sadly behind on my writing goals for the year.  I didn't set out with a specific word count for 2011 but I also haven't been writing nearly as much as I have in years past.  That being said, I have started a new novel.  I'm completely blocked on the one I've had going for a while so I'm going to give it a break and work on this new one.  And this new one - currently titled Connection but that may change - is for an open submission at the end of August.  So, I am glad to have this one churning in my mind.  It is my hope to have the first draft written by the end of June.  That way I can begin editing and revising in July.

As many of you know, I have a new-found love for crochet.  Two days ago I learned how to crochet a circle.  I know that doesn't sound like a big deal but it really is - to me, anyway.  It opend the door for many different crocheting possibilities.  A nice added benefit of crochet is that it really calms me down and helps me to be more patient.  Which, in turn, opens my mind for more writing ideas.  It's definitely a win-win hobby I have. 

Here's a lovely picture of my circle.  I fell in love with this yellow, blue and white yarn the moment I saw it.  They remind me of summer and they were also the colors of my wedding.


  1. Crochet is fantastic fun! Though having said that, I am sadly slacking on my blanket-in-progress. *chuckles* Next time I make one, I'm going to make sure I know how to triple crochet first!

  2. I've hit a roadblock with my revisions right now, too - I know how you feel with the being blocked thing! So in June I'm doing BuNoWriMo to take a break & loosen myself up again. :)
