So what’s going on with me this month?

Well I’ve entered the third month of the 85K90 whole and intact. Which also means I have 24 days and most of April to make word count goal. Especially since April is National Poetry Month. And I plan to revise and edit and write a few new poems for my second poetry book. Before I enter the editing months of May and June for the 85K90.
I also have a possible bonus story to add to my current Foreseen WIP series. The story features the younger sister of Joseph Anders from Love Lines. She crashed their interview demanding a story of her own. And specified she wanted a ‘big, strong and strapping’ man. Searched high and low and asked on social media who her male hero should be. And the people chose bachelor #2.
Who would you have chosen?

Which Bachelor Should Be Keisha Anders Male Hero?
I couldn’t take part in #KissPitch last month. But I was searching the Twitter feed and supporting other writers. I searched pitches with hashtags I’d used when I’ll have a completed and polished manuscript ready to pitch. And found some great pitches to quote-retweet.




Will be searching the Twitter feed and supporting writers on tomorrow’s #PitMad too.
Now to get back to my writing. 42,773 words left to go!

March 7 question – How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/ finish a story?
I tend to squeal real loud. It would send my sons running to my side to find out what’s wrong. When I tell them I’ve met a writing goal or finished the story they yell “yay !”and hug me and we celebrate together.

Speaking of which, Happy Birthday to my son who turned the big old 7 today!


And sometimes I spread the news on social media to my followers and to family and friends.

In what ways have you recently showed support for your fellow writers? How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal or finish a story? Are you participating in #PitMad tomorrow? #DVpit on April 25-26?
