I’m a Minnion
Thanks to Nicole from The Madlab Post for choosing me to be one of her minions.
I am on a staff with Sheila Siler, Tami Van Zalez and M.J. Joachim. A talented, smart and fun group to be a part of and we will do Nicole proud.Have you signed up for the A to Z Challenge? For more information, read this. Still trying to figure out a theme, read this.
Third Week Of Edits
In order to stay up to date on my edits, I have a number of accountabilities (that’s a word) in place.
- the writers dojo – As a part of NiNoReMo group, I have set a goal to edit 12 chapters in the month of March. Ali cross and the rest of the group are super supportive and I don’t want to let them down.
- Beta readers – I am sending chapters to my beta readers as soon as I finish editing them and it’s a good sign when my beta’s are calling me to send more chapters. They are breathless with anticipation (anyone know where that quote comes from?). And, one of my beta’s said, I can’t wait to see if the main characters get together, but she picked the wrong two main characters, so she is going to be in for a surprise. That’s what I hope every reading my book when they read it. I suck them in and then turn the tables on it. hahahahaha(evil laugh).
- DFW Writer’s Conference – I want my beta’s to finish reading so I can have all edits done and ready to go for the conference in May. All those agents out there are just waiting to read my manuscript. 😉
Do you work better when you’re held accountable or are you one of those internally motivated people (
hate envy proud of those people)?

Thanks for the shout out Sydney! It’s always a good sign when your betas are calling out for more. Best of luck!
A theme will come to you!
If there’s a deadline, I’ll hit it. If not, then I can procrastinate with the best of them.
Ugh. Edits. That’s a word I love and hate. Betas wanting more is the best thing ever.
I’m so excited to see you in May! I’ll be coming in on Thursday, when do you get there?
Hey Tameri, I live in north Texas about 40 minutes from the conference. I’ve been debating whether to get a hotel room closer, but probably not. I can’t wait to meet you.
I absolutely work best under pressure…
Good luck with the 12 chapters honey! You can do it 🙂
i totally do better when others know my writing goals. good luck with yours!
Awww, I just saw the shout out. Thanks for that. 😉 Hope you’re wrapping up your 12 chapters. It can be rough
I wrote my book during NaNoWriMo two years ago….
You are welcome. I love your attitude.
