Okay, so I haven’t blogged in a while. I’m not actively writing much, so I guess I just don’t feel like I’m accomplishing anything. But I am. Really. I swear.
I just finished doing a novel critique for a partner. That was a learning experience for me, and one that I enjoyed. Much different from doing chapter critiques for my crit group.
I have nine writing-related goals left to complete this year. I’m still doing the submission package workshop for TSS. Another learning experience. To say the least. I have a rough draft of a long synopsis, a second draft of a shorter synopsis, and a second draft of a query letter. Can anyone please tell me why it’s harder to write the two-paragraph blurb for a query letter than it is to write the entire 100,000-word story?
I’m still working on the zombie story, although not a lot. I need to get back on track with that, and start meeting with my co-writer again. I’ve got the next chapter outlined, it just isn’t done. Must do that before next week…
I’m editing Witches. Right now, I’m still working on a brief pass of the chapters I already did a heavier edit on, so it’s going pretty fast. But pretty soon (like in about two weeks), I’ll be into the untouched stuff. And then it’ll really get fun.
I finished the first draft of the 2YN story, and I’m still working on the assignments for the class. I’m looking forward to what comes next.
The only new words I’ve written have been on the synopsis, but my total word count is up to 51,015 for the year, out of a goal of 250,000.
