Mid-week check-in again! W00T!!
If I sound especially excited it’s because I just got my new Franklin Covey planner stuff in, in addition to just purchased the live version of Scrivener for Windows. I am addicted to planning and office supplies the way I am to coffee and M&Ms. This, of course, means I’m already casting a beady eye toward the 2012 Writing Agenda of Awesome, much like the baleful Eye of Sauron. Oh, wait—is that a crafty Hobbitses I see, sneaking up on my writerly domain? Do they have a pretty, pretty Ring for me? Release the Riders! Bwa-ha-ha-haaaaa!!!
Ahem. Pardon me. Not sure where that came from.
But before I can get my greedy little fingers on 2012 stories, I have to first defeat the rampaging armies of my 2011 goals.
So! Without further ado (or a-don’t):

Next week I want to start work-shopping chapters at the Online Writer’s Workshop and possibly Stunt Cate, my Beta Gollum. But she just recently moved to a different state and is still getting settled in, so we’ll see.
Marked (Keepers #2)
Now that I have a discovery draft in place it’s time to start churning it, picking out the BCBs (Burnt Crunchy Bits) and turning it into a meditation draft. I want to have something shiny and pretty to give to Lovely, Intrepid Editor by November 30.
And, finally, it wouldn’t be a Wednesday check-in without your
