Tuesday Checking In

Words added: 330
Words deleted: a bunch this time around
Chapter I’m currently editing: 18
Chapters to go: 3

I’m actually in the part where I did the 2 day mega write to finish this book. Which means tons to fix, but it’s fun and exciting since I don’t really remember all of the scenes.

Goal for next week: Finish the first pass, print it out and start one more pass. Oh, and really start working on the synopsis.

Rhiannonjk please email me at vickilanewrite @ yahoo.com. I announced you as the winner for Diana’s book on Sunday. :)

Also, I haven’t heard from Flick from my contest for Stacey Kayne’s book Maverick Wild. If I don’t hear anything by the end of the week, I’ll choose other winner from that contest.

Your turn. How did your writing week go? Accomplish your goals or come close?

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,

Well if you want to consider writing a 2 page newsletter, a media kit and sent invoices to over 50 clients in the past week and half a goal...yeah I met it! I bet your writing was much more fun. Thus why I have a blog to let it all hang out!

And your blog is great, MI! You did a ton of stuff this week. Mine is fun when I'm doing the frist draft of POS (Piece of Shit, Nora Roberts coined the phrase), but the edit part...yeah well, not so much. But as they say this two shall pass.

Vicki, thanks so much for taking the time to review my blog and the sweet things you had to say!

I'm working through the tail end of my 'very rough' first pass now myself. Much of it is a surprise, which tells you how long I've been writing this book!

I wrote 600 words but I was aiming for much, much more. I'm doing 70 days of sweating so hoping to up my total big time the rest of the week.

Let me see I took off last week to destress and then started up yesterday after signing up for Sven. So far I have the POV picked, the tone of voice and 3,500 words from scratch.
Now I need to go back and revisit the 27,000 word from the rough draft and change the tone of the the MC. She sounded too much like me and that doesn't fit her personality.
