WIP #7

MENTAL STATUS: "Excited". Going on a field trip with the kiddo's class today! Woo-hoo!

Oooh, good progress to report this week!

That little purple bar has inched its way out of the 60% zone and has reached 70%. FINALLY!

Wow...would ya look at me being all productive and whatnot with my writing. :)







35002 / 50000 words. 70% done!

70%! Have you ever seen a more glorious percent number? I mean besides 80. Besides 90, too.

Well, yeah, 100 is the best, but that's a gimme, so that one doesn't count.

Anyhew, no writing will get done today, but I'm setting another writing goal for Thursday. Hopefully, I'll hit it.

How was your progress?

I know that feeling! I just hit in the 90's!! And I love it. My problem is I think I might not be able to write as many words as I wanted to so I'm hoping it will grown with the edits. yay for you!
enjoy your outing today.

Way to go!

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Congrats, Jennifer!!!

I'm heavy into baking and editing, so my word count isn't moving right now. Editing is a full-time job in and of itself. But I am seeing progress. Yay for me.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Thanks, ladies!

And congrats on your progress, Terri and Eileen! :)

Wow, you're making great progress! Do you have any other books waiting to be released? I'd be curious to know how the status of your seven. I know one made it to publication (and I have it and am planning to read it this summer!). But what about the others?

Jennifer Shirk said...

Hi, Jody! I'm a sloooooow writer so I only have one that is STILL under consideration. And then this one that I'm currently working on. :)

Jessica said...

Woohoo Jennifer! :-)
Have fun on the field trip.

Chelle Sandell said...

Yay you!! Almost there!! Hope you guys have a great day;)

Jeanette Levellie said...

Jennifer: Congrats! You are the bomb! (do they still say that?)
I am revising and editing, getting ready to send my first book to a professional editor. Almost done!
Have a fun day,
Jen

Cindy said...

Excellent progress! Great job. I just started mine, so it's not even to 10,000 words yet. Not to worry, progress is being made!

70% is awesome, Jennifer! Way to go!

Thanks, ladies!

And yes, Jeanette, you can still say the bomb--but I think it's "da bomb" LOL!

Congratulations! The end is so close, don't you love it? I was field-tripping it today too, so I'll be back in my chair tomorrow. Can't wait!

Amy De Trempe said...

Congrats on hitting 70%. What a great feeling it must be.

I finally cut mine to 104,500k. YAY! It started out at 150k. I seem to have the reverse problem when it comes to word count. :(
