I’ve made some progress since the last time I blogged. I finished the first draft of my 2YN story, Samantha’s story. Yay! I had planned to have it finished in February, but I didn’t quite make it. Instead, I finished it on March 3rd. Close enough, I guess. I’m not entirely happy with the ending, but I know I can fix it in the revisions.
I also got a chapter written in the zombie story. I’ve been sadly neglecting that one for a month or so, and it was a little difficult to get back into the character and world like I needed to. We’re making good progress on the story. Probably about halfway done.
One of my goals for the month of March was to get a query letter and synopsis written for Through Shadowed Stone. Strangely enough, I was procrastinating on Forward Motion last night, and happened to stumble across a post that said the workshop for this month was putting together a submission package. How’s that for coincidence? So, of course I checked out the board. The first assignment was to write a long synopsis, 1250-1750 words. My first draft came in at 2729 words. Oops. Had to cut that down a little bit. I’m not happy with the result, but I realize it’s the beginning stages, so I’m trying not to stress about it too much. I’m thrilled to have found the workshop though, especially at such an opportune time.
My word count for the year is up to 50,020 words. I’m a fifth of the way to my goal.
