WIP #5


IN THE NEWS: Cuban poses as lawyer handling immigrant cases. Read more HERE.

Ooops. I think I missed a WIP week. But that's okay, I didn't make a progress anyway. Ya know, being spring break and all. My typing fingers were kind of sore, too. And, well, my dog ate my computer. And...

Not buying it, huh?

All right. It's a new day, a new WIP #, so let's get down to business.

Drum roll, please...




31171 / 50000 words. 62% done!

Well, well. Bet you didn't expect that! Not only did I cross the stupid 60% line, I did little more.

Boo-yah!

Thank you, thank you. But really, I can't accept this praise all on my own. I had a little help. Yes. A little help from someone I like to refer to as... oven kitchen timer.

That's right. More on that at a later blog post. :)

How's your progress?

My progress sucks right now. Between Easter weekend, the jewelry show I did and getting ready for RT, I've got a lot less written than I'd hoped for. Ugh.

I finished my chapter and was pretty proud...until offline crit buddy said I needed to change the beginning to get my characters together by page 3. *sigh* I'll wait to see what you guys say and work on chapter two. I want to get it finished before this weekend.

I don't believe the dog ate your computer...maybe the crab cut the power cord? ;)

Still taking a break over here...in 9 days, I'll be doing hard core revisions!

Great progress!

I posted mine on my blog this morning, but I'll be working on revisions all day. Who knows what that will do to the page count.

This week's progress is moving so slow! I'm behind on my daily goals. Not sure exactly why! I had to stop on Monday to do extra research. Maybe I just haven't been able to catch up since then!

Whooo! Over the 60% mark!

I'm also very intrigued by the oven timer's role in all this...

I think I need to outline week by week or day by day. When I have a clearer vision the fingers just fly on the keyboard. Last night I barely made my word count, could it be due to the fact I surfed the Internet every 200 words? lol

Progress? We're supposed to make progress?

Diane Craver said...

You did great! And you have to take time and experience life, too! :)

I saw your comment on Jody's blog and thought I'd stop by. I must say, I am really interested to hear about the kitchen timer.

Yay! Congrats Jennifer. :-) I think I'm going to post tomorrow that I made it to the 50% mark. Isn't progress an awesome feeling? :-)
