Calling All SWIMmers

Hi Everyone!

Kiki, the effervescent creator of The Prosecco Life, and I have decided to join forces to create a support blog for those of us working on writing projects this summer.

We're planning to post updates twice a week: one on Monday to declare our writing intentions for the week & one on Friday (or the weekend) to share what we managed to accomplish.

So, if you'd like to join us, send an email to and I'll add you to the list of SWIMmers. Once I've added you, you'll be able to upload your own posts to the blog.

This support group is for anyone trying to get a start on or complete any kind of writing project: academic article/book, dissertation, fiction, poetry, personal statements, manifestos, etc. Even if you've never written anything before, but you're ready to get that idea that's been simmering in your head onto paper, this would be a great opportunity to get started!

I'll dive in first by briefly listing my summer goals & what I'm trying to accomplish this week.

Revisionista's Writing Intentions:

Summer Goals:

  • Assemble a complete draft of the academic book
  • Draft ACT I of the NOLA novel
This Week
  • Draft 12 singlespaced pp of CH 1 of the academic book (get into the fiction section)
  • Draft 35 handwritten, wild, messy pages of the NOLA novel
  • Type up pages written thus far
We look forward to SWIMming with you. ;)
