Thanks to everyone for your support! I’m deeply humbled by the outpouring from friends and fellow writers. You folks are THE BEST!
I could not have completed these novellas without the encouragement,
threats motivation, and thoughtful critique of the women of this blog. I’m indebted to the three of you, no question!
Which, of course, brings us to the really fun part of each goal period: The Dunkings!
On August 1st, in the hottest part of the day, we all trooped down to the back patio, filled up a five-gallon bucket of ice water, and proceeded to
motivate dunk Dawn and Terri in turn.
Poor Dawn. She thought I’d be nice.
Unfortunately for her, I’d learned important lessons from the undisputed Ice Queen of Torment during Dunking #1, when Lorinda pointed out the virtues of the Trickle method over the Whoosh and Done technique.
As a result, Dawn Temple performed the very first Self-Dunking on record:
Yes, folks, she ripped that bucket right out of my hands. She’s a take-charge kind of gal. Even the stone lion is in awe.
Meanwhile, Terri Rich finished off her dunking with a little stylin’:
Not bad considering she got popped on the head with an ice chunk roughly the size of Massachusetts…
And a big CONGRATS! to Lorinda Peake for powering through the second draft of her first novella and meeting her second round goal! The Dry Team grows!
I’m really looking forward to the next goals because they involve Dawn’s third book in her trilogy, Lorinda’s second novella in her trilogy, and a return to Terri’s romantic suspense novel. Yay! for fresh stories and the revisit of a fun and engaging suspense novel!
Next goal date: February 1, 2016
Sandra K. Moore has been writing one thing or another since she could scribble on a Big Chief tablet. A former Silhouette Bombshell author, Sandra has given up (temporarily) the kickass heroine and is now writing from her softer side for the self-published Promise House series. This novella quartet explores the journeys of four young women finding their way — and remaining true to themselves — through the social expectations and turmoil of 1950’s Houston.
