WIP Wednesday #2

MENTAL STATUS: "Happy". Heard some non-writing good news recently and I'm also pleased with my writing progress.

Wow, has one week gone by already? I guess it has. So let's just cut to the chase and go for the progress report:

I reached my goal.

Yes, I'm shocked, too. But I actually finished my chapter seven. (Woo-hoo!)

I admit most of my writing was done yesterday--and a little last night. Nothing like a little pressure of blogging about your writing results to get, uh, results on your writing. :)

I'm really pleased with what I have. I even spent a good chunk of last night layering in some deep POV for my hero. That was fun, because in the process I learned some reasons for his actions and why he's so afraid of our sweet-wouldn't-hurt-a butterfly heroine.

So I am now here:

27908 / 50000 words. 56% done!

Sweet, huh?

I'm going to be a little aggressive with my next Wednesday's goal. I know. I'm may be getting cocky, but I want to have my chapter 8 completed my next Wednesday. Will I do it? Not so sure, but I hope so.

Tune in Wednesday and find out!

How's your WIP shaping up?


Shelley Munro said...

Congrats on the writing progress. That's great. I'm working on two manuscripts at once. Some days are better than others!

Chicki said...

You're rolling, girl! Is this story a novella? Are you targeting a specific line?

I've decided to start this WIP Wednesday on my blog too. Stop by an holla!

Kristen Painter said...

Awesome!! Congrats!

My WIP is shaping up nicely, but needs to shape up faster, hence my big writing day today. (And possibly Thursday and Friday also.)

Jessica said...

WooHoo! Awesome progress. I guess we're close to the same spots in our books. I think I'm going to have to read up on deep pov again. Haven't thought about it much as I've been writing. When you say layer it in, what do you mean by that?
I don't think I do well with deep pov, so this is interesting to me.
Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. :-)
Good luck with your next chapter!

Patricia W. said...

Great progress, Jennifer! You're inspiring the rest of us.

Stephanie said...

oh so sweet FOR YOU!! Ugh, I haven't written in two weeks and it's killing me!

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

Whoooo! That is such great progress!

Jody Hedlund said...

I just came from Kate's blog and am trying to figure out the WIP on Wednesday concept. You must be doing the same thing she is. Do you just post the meter in your blog every Wednesday as an update?

It looks really neat, but I'm not exactly sure how it works yet!

T. Anne said...

Great job! I love getting to the point in a novel where you are now. You've ironed out all those getting to know you details and the story really begins to take flight at that point.

Petula said...

Wow... you're making great progress. This is my first visit, but I am impressed. I hope I remember to come back to see how you did for next week. Good luck.

Jessica said...

Wow, I don't know what I was thinking. Maybe the coffee hadn't kicked in. So, uh, yeah, I'm twenty percent finished and your fifty. BIG difference. LOL Congrats again. :-)

Great Progress, Jennifer. I have to laugh because I almost did the same thing last night - decide to write in order to have something to report. Instead I read. This week fizzled, but staying accountable and posting WIP. here
Good luck with Chapter 8.
