WIP #6


MENTAL STATUS: "Anxious". (I hate running late.)

Well, I think I can officially dub the chapter I've been working on as "THE CHAPTER THAT WOULDN'T DIE".

Every time I thought, Oooh yay! I'm done. Something nagged at me and I would go back to it. But after much soul searching, I think I figured out what was wrong.

I ended up adding to a scene and changing the end. But I think it works better now. I even started the next chapter.

So... without further ado. Here's my progress thus far:





32283 / 50000 words. 65% done!

Not too shabby. I feel a mountain has been climbed. Whew!

How was your progress?

Good for you! I've been meaning to ask why this story is only 50K words. Are you submitting to category publishers?

I'm back to editing an old manuscript so actual progress on my current wip is dismal. But that's okay, there is a season for everything.

You should be very pleased with your progress. You're on the home stretch now. Congrats!

Jessica said...

Mine is slow.
Woohoo! Congrats on fixing it. :-)

My progress could have been better, but I'm okay with where I'm at. Plus, today is a new day.

Yay you!! Dying to see it!! I interviewed new characters yesterday and started the first chapter this morning. The words are flowing and I'm feeling pretty positive;)

Yeehaw! I'm almost to the mid-point of my novel and the final half is always my favorite to write. Happy Writing!

Chicki--Yeah, I'm going to submit to Harlequin, Avalon, and Samhain.

I'm nearing the end. I think I only have 2 or 3 chapters to go!

I had no time for my WIp yest. so I feel it is a top priority today.... we will see. Good luck with that never ending chapter. Been there it's almost impossible to stop tinkering, but if it doesn't feel right well that's a different story.

After finishing a challenging chapter, that's a great way of putting it - like a mountain's been climbed. Yes, you can almost feel winded! Congrats, and onward and upward :)
