Welcome to this week's Novel Support Group (NSG). Anyone can join. If you're new, tell us a bit about who you are and what project you are working on. Feel free to update the NSG Work in Progress thread with your current projects. Although we can report on any number of things, here is a list of suggestions (suggestions welcomed).

Here is a list of things that you can do each week as we work on our novels (suggestions welcomed).

Last Week's Goals

Sorry that I didn't post last week, but with my father in town I had other things going. We had a good time. He brought quite a few pictures (for our family anyway). I come from a family who don't like to have their pictures taken so anything is something. These pictures ranged from his father's high school graduation and his mother's engagement picture to a picture taken of him a month before I was born. I now have several of his pictures from birth through high school as well. I'm really excited to finally have some pictures.

My goals for next week:

  • Review research

For now I just need to review the research I've been doing and get back into the swing of things.

What I need to learn this week

Not much this week either. Sorry. It's been a whirlwind of activity.
