As usual, when the weather changes for the better, my schedule seems to fill up faster than the Walmart parking lot on a Rollback day. Picnics, camping, softball games, practices, birthdays, etc. I love and hate it all at the same time. It definately makes it a requirement to schedule in my writing time.
The Machenwood story is progressing fairly well and I am up to Chapter 6 now. Still haven't reached a point where I feel I can incorporate the notes I already have, but maybe that is a good thing -- since it means I will have that much more to add to the story as I go.
I found a great site for getting feedback and critiques. I would suggest it to anyone that wants to get a readers perspective on their stories or chapters.
The site is http://www.critiquecircle.com/ -- I posted the first two chapters for feedback and got 12 critiques during the week that my story was in the queue. Alot of great suggestions and edits that I missed. It has been absolutely invaluable to me. It gives me a chance to get a real feel for the readers reactions and also allows me to read and critique other writers work -- a great way to see different writing styles and learn from each other.
I am lovin' it!
