Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 82 + Other Stuff

I’ve got a lot to jam into one post, so let’s get right to it!
 
WriteOnConFirst, WriteOnCon is happening today and tomorrow. This is the fourth year for the online conference for kidlit writers. It’s always packed with amazingly helpful information, and there are forums where you can post your query and writing samples for feedback. Make sure you check it out, and if you’re too busy this week, the best part is the info stays up all year.
 
#writemotivationSecond, it’s time for my #writemotivation update. I rewrote two chapters this week. So how am I feeling about that? Well, that pace doesn’t put me on track to finish the whole thing by the end of August, since I have fourteen more chapters to go. But honestly, that’s much faster progress than usual, so I’m happy about it. I made an aggressive deadline to push myself, so even if I don’t meet it, I’ll have gotten a lot more done than my usual glacial pace. 
 
I’m going to push even harder this week, but I imagine with WriteOnCon deliciousness distracting me this week it’s going to be tough. I hope everyone who is participating in #writemotivation has a great week meeting your goals!
 
15 Minute Tweet TalesAnd now for my 15 Minute Tweet Tales. We actually had another repeat word: on 8/7 the word was supposed to be traduce, which we already had last June. I think lumpen was a fun-to-say replacement. Here are my tales for the week:
 
8/7 - He sits in front of the TV every night, eating junk and mocking the lumpen 'stars' of trashy reality shows, never grasping the irony.
 
8/8 - A doctor's son is gunned down. Police grab the weeping suspect and she claims it was talionic: "That quack killed my son; I killed his."
 
8/9 - Most demons masquerade as sexy women, but Akem makes his best orectic bargains lounging in coffee shops disguised as a famous agent.
 
8/10 - He designed a privative captivity to awaken her consciousness. She used the time to imagine creative ways to kill him. Then she did.
 
8/11 - Mya wears anidian dresses to hide her pregnancy. It would crush her mom to know her stepfather did this to her. Plus she'd blame Mya.
 
8/12 - Championship game tied with 3 seconds left. He chucks ball from half court. Swish! Team tackles him, luxates his shoulder. Totally worth it.
 
8/13 - She cringes as his agrestic hands reach for her, but he'd paid her way to this country, so she'll do her wifely duty and try to smile. #15tt
 
Are you ‘attending’ WriteOnCon? How did your #writemotivation goals go this week? Play along and write tweet tales for the above words. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tales or #15tt words?

Anidian is a cool-sounding word.

I'll check out WOC later.

Darn I missed WriteOnCon- I didn't realize it was that time of year again. Summer is just flying by! I am sure it was great. :)

Awesome job getting more writing done! It sounds like things are moving along nicely. Hope you had a happy weekend.

Jess - the best part about WriteOnCon is that the info will be up until the next WriteOnCon, so plenty of time to soak it in.
