WIP #3



IN THE NEWS: Martha Stewart's Blogging Dogs Tell All. Read more HERE.


Okay, I'm not going to give you a long list of excuses for not meeting goal this week. Blah, blah, blah...
(But,uh, remember, I have been a little busy trying to do promo)


*clears throat*


I WILL say that I wrote three pages. Yes. I have a beginning to my chapter eight. Then, I don't know, I got sidetracked and well, you know the rest...
I know I shouldn't waste your eyeballs on this progress meter but I feel compelled to post it anyway:



28895 / 50000 words. 58% done!

Wow! A whopping whole 2% more done. (That's sarcasm if you can't recognize it)

Anyhew... I'm going to buckle down today. And when I say today, I really mean tomorrow, because I just remembered I have a few things I need to get done that do not involve writing.

Here's to a more progressive week ahead.

How did you do?

Hey, 2% is still progress.
I'm doing a final read through on my manuscript before I send it to my editor.

Hey, stuff happens ...

I did okay because of the rainy weather.

Stop by my blog for my WIP Wednesday. I'm talking about first person POV.

I've had a good writing week so far. 17 pages, I think? Need to count. Will do more today!

Stephanie said...

2% is 2%!!!

Progess is progress. It's moving forward. Congrats on the print release of The Role of a Lifetime!

I can only imagine how busy you must be with promoting your book! I'm not looking forward to that aspect of the writing career, should I ever get published. I know it's really important in today's market, but wouldn't we just rather write?! Sigh.

Three pages are better than none. Good luck with your WIP.

In some books I have read, three pages were exciting and wanted you to finish reading. So keep those fingers flexible and write 3 more

Hey, don't feel bad about that. I was going great on my most recent WIP until life happened. The last 2 weeks have been beyond bad at home. So, I just put down the pen (er...keyboard?) and decided to start up again on 4/4/09. That sounded like a good date.

Sometimes taking a break can make you come back stronger and better.
