Wednesday's Writing Update

It's time again for another episode of Wednesday's Writing Update!

On Saturday, I updated September's writing stats and wrote down October's writing goals. You can check out that post here.

On Monday, I wrote this Friday's flash fiction. Since I'll be at the James River Writers (JRW) Conference, it's all ready and set to post on Friday morning. Please do stop by and read it.

Speaking of the JRW Conference, I'm preparing to go. I have off today, so I can get my car washed and fueled up and buy some groceries I'll need for next week, since I won't be going grocery shopping against until then. I have to make certain to have enough cat food for my Cinderella kitty. *grins* I'm beginning to get excited about the conference, although I'm majorly stressed about parking and the hotel arrangements. I'm just not used to these things, and I hope everything goes smoothly. I'm going to try to do my best to blog about everything I learn on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. So be on the look out for those posts.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm working on editing/rewriting Virtuoso. It's going well so far.

So far, I'm working in my head on Sarah's Nightmare. I'll need to start putting the timeline, outline, synopsis, character sketches, etc. down on the computer soon, so I'll be ready to begin writing it on November 1st.

I haven't heard anything back on the submission front. I should know some things in a few weeks.

And, that's all the updates I have for now. Wish me luck at the conference and especially think good thoughts for me on Saturday at 1:21 PM EST. That's when I'll be having my five-minute pitching session with Literary Agent Melissa Sarver.

Oh, and I received the ARC of DRACULAS by authors Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson yesterday in my email! Yay! I can't wait to read it!!

Good luck at the conference! I forgot that you were going. I hope you learn a lot and share it us with here on your blog!

It's always hard to leave our animals behind, but I'm sure your family will look after them.

Thanks, Aubrie! And, I'll be posting soon!

And, I'm sure they'll watch them. I've left very specific instructions. *laughs*
