Grapemo Week 4 WEEKLY UPDATES

grapemo
Here is our final weekly update. Our progress reports for the month will be due by Thursday night for posting Friday morning. Don't forget, tomorrow is our LAST TEASER DAY! I can't believe this month is ending. So much progress has been made. Kudos to all of you!

barbarabaker "Well, it was not a great writing week. I think it was a mistake to try to do revisions of two different manuscripts back to back. So, after fighting it for awhile I decided to wait to do number two until after I've finished the first one. That means I've got to wait to get it back from my reader and evaluate whatever she thinks it needs. Very frustrating! Meanwhile I'm reading and thinking about a brand new ms I'm planning on writing next. Hope everyone met their goals or made progress toward achieving them."

edgyauthor "I managed to finish three comic strips this week. Only have four more to do to reach my goal!"

fandoria "Thanks to killer allergies and an insane schedule, I didn't do so great this week. In fact, unless you count selecting and cleaning up the teasers for Tues and Thurs, I only wrote for 30 minutes on Thursday. The rest of the week was a bust."

Jean D: "I've been working on some papers for a nursing student that I edit for and cranked out an article on spec for a healthy lifestyle newsletter that I freelance for. (Not my typical "writing," but the healthy lifestyle article really forces me to hone my research skills and "write tight.") In addition, I jumped on an opportunity to submit a picture book manuscript to a couple new sources that came through an e-newsletter I get and also queried a picture book agent that I just heard about. I'm also working on a submission for an SCBWI non-fiction grant. All in all, a good week."

Kathie C added 314 words to her chapter and outlined the rest of it this week.

melissawyatt "Managed 1,000 words this week on Her Name is Anne and then got a bit distracted by another project but it was a breakthrough on POV that I've been struggling with for a long time."

Neva F: "Sun (Feb 17th) 3 hrs; Mon: 2 hrs 30 mins; Tues: 3 hrs; Wed 1 hr 45 min; Thurs: 2 hrs; Fri: 2 hrs 30 mins; Sat: 3 hrs; TOTAL: 17 hrs and 45 mins..."

onegrapeshy "I revised all 93 pages of my proposal/sample pages (which turned out to be 95 pages) and now I have to write the synopsis."

swhisted "It seems impossible that I was able to write more than my entire monthly goal this week alone, but I did. A low workload at work allowed me to write more than I normally would throughout the week and I topped that off with my usual weekend word count, bringing my weekly total to 7,193 words! Most successful writing week I’ve had in a long time. It feels good. :)"

Vickie M: "Still waiting for my second critic to give me feedback, then two more to go. And, I am working on grammar, tenses, etc., by isolating one paragraph at a time (the way it is done to get the teaser ready)
."

Grapemo has gone by so fast! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everyone is able to reach their goals before March is truly here!
