Brainstorming, reading. Writing?


A trifle behind this week as had friend from forever/editor staying at beginning, although we managed to keep away from writing until the end some useful brainstorming was managed.

Have finished the month well ahead of reading goals with 13 book out of my 75 planned. Not resting on those particular laurels, it’s January, it’s cold and I am confined to the house. I know when the weather improves I won’t have so much time to read.

    Congrats on all your accomplishments! For the first time this year, I entered a book challenge. It’s going well. too. :-)

    The longer I write, the more I realize how much brainstorming and researching is part of the entire process. Enjoy it!

    Networking is always a balance struggle for me. It tends to be the first dropped, when other commitments need my time.

    This week has already had two snow days. Not a bad start. ;-)

    13 not 30! even I cant read that fast and actually eat:) Reading fast has many advantages but the downside is one is always looking for a new book!

  3. Wow, 30 books. That is insane! I wish I had the time to read more. Reading faster would also help. I am confined mostly to reading at night only. Before bed.
