Weekly Recap – September 13th, 2013

Friday the 13th has arrived. My bad luck came early as I had to extend my Omaha workcation another week, so now I won’t be home until the 24th… assuming I’m not extended again. I was hoping my wife could come out, but she received a last minute job opportunity.

At least the weather is nice today.

On the writing front, I’ve made some great progress on Daughter of Fortitude. I’ve received feedback on a rough draft from a couple of people in my critique group as well as my friend Oliver, all of it invaluable. I’m already seeing improvement in the story and am more excited than ever to submit by the end of the month.

Another weekend of work awaits me tomorrow. Hope you all have a relaxing weekend in my place!

  1. It is so exciting when feedback inspires you, huh? I like that feeling, too. You must have an awesome critique group.

    1. It’s such a great feeling Nila! The critique group is great, not to mention friends that are outside of the group. It helps to be open to the feedback too. The more I write, the more open I find myself to the criticism.

  2. Your life must seem kind of surreal these days. Can you find some old Twilight Zone episodes on Hulu to put it all in perspective? 😉

    1. Hah! I need to find a little diner around here with a fortune telling machine. Then I’ll know that something has gone terribly wrong.

  3. Sorry to hear you got extended. Hope you can make the best of it and get some decent writing in. Hang in there…

    1. Thanks Stan. I’m trying to make the most of it by writing as much as possible between all the business stuff. It’s been good for me in that sense anyway. Hope things are going well with you and Danah.

  4. *Rod Serling Voice* “He is a man called Phillip. He thought he was doing a workcation in Omaha until he came upon the little diner at the side of the road. It so happens that Friday the 13th will be especially unlucky for Phillip and he has no idea that he has just stopped at the first signpost of the Twilight Zone.” do dee doo dee do

  5. I’m sorry to hear your tour in Omaha has been extended, Phillip. I’m sure your wife is not enjoying this separation. With the bad comes the good I guess. I’m happy to hear you’re making progress with Daughter of Fortitude…good job!

  6. Sorry you have to stay longer. But I’m glad that you’re meeting your writing goals. A silver lining, huh? I hope the praying mantis is still hanging out at your home.
