Celebrate The Small Things - 11 July #CTST

It's Friday and time to Celebrate The Small Things (or big things) that happened this week.

I'm thankful for my writing buddies. We beta read each others work, provide honest feedback, and listen to each other lament our lack of production, but there are also times to celebrate. One of my friends came out with a new novel last week. I interviewed him yesterday as part of his blog tour. He did some promotion for me as well. We both saw sales spikes. Win-win.

And I finally got past a block on one of my WIPs. It was driving me nuts. I hope it's a good idea. It's passed the twenty-four hour test, so maybe I'm onto something. We'll see how the words tumble.

Keep writing and keep hoping. What are you celebrating this week?

  1. Nothing beats good critique buddies. Glad you are sailing through the writing again.

  2. It's great to hear you have good betas and had sales spikes! Woohoo! (I have no idea what that's like...) Thanks for the correct spelling of "bonsai." *blush* Have a great weekend!

  3. Way to go with your beta and with the good sale spikes!!! Congrats!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Another story coming your way...
    Oh, and I read Ivy and the Walnut - very good! Contextualization, characterization, storyline, it was all there. Was your breakthrough with the dancing sisters story? Looking forward to reading it again.

  5. Writing buds rock, don't they? Way to get past that block. On to the next -- or something like that.

  6. Can't beat a good writing buddy, for sure - and congrats on those sales!
