Row80 Check In 1-29-12

Today’s check in is another short and sweet one. Most of you know my brother passed on Thursday, and it was a relief to everyone watching him suffer. Because I’ll be traveling for the services, I won’t be blogging this week.

I did manage to write almost 1800 words on The Prophet and work out an additional plot point, so the week was productive.

Hope you all had successful weeks:) See you next Sunday.

    • Thank you, Laurie. I’ll keep your brother in my prayers. Mine was older, and I didn’t have the chance to know him well. Can’t imagine your situation.

    I’m so sorry, Stacy. My prayers are with you and your family.

  3. My condolences to you and your family. I didn’t know that your brother had passed, but oddly enough I prayed about your family last week, and I could swear it was on Thursday. You still managed to write, which is good. In fact, sometimes writing can help through the grief. Best wishes, Stacy.

    • I just saw this. Thanks so much. Yes, he passed on the 26th. Writing definitely helped through the grief, and he’s in a better place now.

  4. Hey, I love your blog, you should check out mine. I’m just getting started and I would greatly appreciate the help in spreading the word, I’ll be spreading the word on yours, I love how you write your reviews and the varieties you have in your books.
