We (Alison, Katy, Erin, Jaime and I) would like to thank you for participating and we want to celebrate your success by offering fresh pairs of eyes on your work. While we all agree that we’re no experts (i.e. agent, editor, freelance editor…), we know how helpful beta readers can be. So each one of us is offering feedback on the first ten pages of your story. Yes–that’s FIVE critique giveaways! All you have to do is pop in next Wednesday (August 28th) and enter via Rafflecopter. The giveaway will be open internationally but only to RSW participants
THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH!
And now let’s tune in to your regular programming…
What I´m reading
I’ve just started a new book (thanks to Netgalley) called POOR LITTLE DEAD GIRLS.
I do find myself analyzing the plot and structure a tad more than usual. Like my writer brain is focusing on the details I might normally overlook because it’s in full revision mode. The start is a bit slow but I’m intrigued and am looking forward to find out more about the story.
What I’m Writing
I revised one chapter this week! Yay! I know it’s less than what I wanted to achieve BUT getting back to my manuscript felt great and I feel like this revision is taking my WiP to a better place.
What else I´ve been up to
Last week, the Chemical Engineer and I were in Tuscany. It was simply gorgeous (see pictures here
Sunday I celebrated my birthday. My amazing hubby took me out for a great brunch..
Hmmm Kir Royal :)
Yesterday we celebrated our wedding anniversary…We’ve almost been together for 10 years (married for two) and this is the man I want to grow old with. The one who makes me laugh, think, smile, who challenges me and supports me. My best friend. My love.
Every single time I look at this picture, I smile!
The Chemical Engineer brought me flowers on the eve of our Wedding Anniversary :)
What inspires me right now
Getting back on track with my revising.
I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to
