Seven Writing Links -- Volume 165

I apologize for the lack of activity here the last couple of weeks. Life has been keeping me busy and the weeks seem to end before I realize I've forgotten to post. When I think about it, however, I couldn't have picked a better time to slack off. It's April, which means the A to Z challenge is in full swing, so all you busy bloggers out there probably haven't even noticed my absence. 

As far as my writing progress goes, I've finally reached that point of the story where my notes for the next few chapters consist of: "MC tracks down bad guys and almost gets caught." Not a lot to work with. I plan to flesh out those notes over the weekend, but as usual, only time will tell if I succeed. 

Enjoy the links and have a great weekend!

  1. Good luck outlining it further.
    Been taking some breaks this month myself.

  2. I have a vague section of one of my stories like that.

  3. Wishing Happy Writings and Success with your story.

  4. Your notes look a bit like mine. I have one that says, "they all work together to defeat the monsters." I have no idea how they defeat the monsters, only that they do. :)

    Hope time allowed you some progress!

  5. I've done that to myself and fleshing it out was the only way to go. Have fun. ;-)

  6. My notes are rather lame, too. I haven't been around much either. Started a new job at beginning of this month, so I'm not making any author demands on myself just yet. Then we had internet issues and my computer decided to act up at the same time. Things seem to be running smoothly now and I started my 4 day work weeks this week. Yay!
