Akoss revised one chapter, making a total of three chapters revised.

another_wip has 2K of new words for KHYR, plus another 1K of languages creation which is a lot harder than most people would think, i.e. developing 'root' words, being consistent how tenses are built--"But if you don't have believable language systems, who is going to believe you have different worlds?"

Cari D wrote 800 words this week.

edgyauthor completed three more comic strips--officially REACHING her Grapemo goal!

Elaine H wrote 10,000 words and edited 24,000 words.

fandoria has a very busy week at home but still managed to get an hour of writing in.

Jenni received from great feedback from her beta readers and made some edits, and also reviewed five sections and "re-wrote some passages in those sections to read more clearly. Hooray for progress!"

Kathie C did a little more research this week on King Tut and figured out which voice will carry the historical aspects of the story. Alas, no writing.

kbaccellia rewrote her first two chapters based on critique buddies feedback and was able to work on telling her story in one sentence. "Taking a RWA on-line class. Loving it!"

Kim V wrote a short story which is now being critiqued by her group, and plans to enter it in a Glimmer Train writing contest. While spending time with an ill family member, "I found my sparse and easily interrupted writing time was better spent writing short stories." Once she finishes up a second story, she plans to get back to her MULESKINNER revisions.

Mialie S: After finishing her first official GrapeMo goal and the second impromptu one, focused on current publishing assignments. She also submitted the 71st edition of "Puppy Tails," published HERE on Valentine's Day, along with comparatively less exciting graphic design tasks. "I'm hoping to wrap up the month back in novelist fashion...somehow."

newport2newport is re-analyzing the narrative structure of her book ("The challenge: weaving together the threads, past and present, in the most meaningful (read: coherent and captivating) way.") She read two books that mirror the structure of her own and also tackled some chapter revisions.

onegrapeshy has revised her goal to write as 25 pages of her new wip, with no new writing accomplished this week.

Patti M sent out 3 additional queries for her YA SF, plus wrote 1,159 words on her new YA paranormal.

Sher T finished the rewrites of SECRET INGREDIENT on the 13th (24,765 words), has edited chapters 1 thru 12 nonstop since then, and plans to finish these up by Tuesday evening.

swhisted wrote a little over 2K words, finally closed the last hole in the story, and surpassed the 50K mark!

Even if you make no progress, you can still check in!

So many great accomplishments! :)

Since I've already reached my Grapemo goal, I was wondering if I still send an update this Sunday?

You don't have to. But if you started something new or added to it, you can tell us about it! :)

Thanks for letting me know! I've still been working on comic strips, so I'll probably send an update. :)
