It’s Wednesday, which means it is time for a WIP progress update. I’m happy to say that I haven’t wasted my break from work – although I’m not sure that I wrote as much as I did last week.
Never-the-less, I got some HUGE writing tasks off my to-do list. Not to mention a lot of INCREDIBLE inspiration and story-line ideas…(now I just need to weave them into the story).
So – on to the update:
My goals last week were to make a bunch of progress on my current WIP, outline the next WIP and finish some short stories…
Well, things changed.
I did manage to do a little research for a new WIP. Of course, that just made those characters start speaking even louder…hmmmm.
I also rewrote my synopsis based on a friend’s feedback. I can actually say I LOVE IT now…
Finishing the synopsis for THE SPACES IN BETWEEN has made me relook at a few things in that novel. So, I rewrote the opening (SO much happier with it) and am running through another revision just to tighten up a few things and strengthen the voice of the MC.
I love the changes so far (YEAH!). I hope to be finished with it by next week so I can start querying again.
As for progress on my WIP, I have finished major rewrites on ten chapters or so. I am currently working on another round of major rewrites on the next section. Yeah – you’re right…I’m basically rewriting the entire thing. But, it’s SO MUCH better!!!
I must say, I LOVE the characters in the book and their relationships with each other. Makes the rewrites so fun!!!
All in all, I wrote about 5000 words on the WIP. Of course, with the revisions on SPACES I got myself into, as well as my 9-5 job on the horizon, I’m curious to see how much progress I make this week.
Good thing I have to post regularly for my critique buddies…otherwise I could procrastinate on this for TOO LONG!!!
What about you guys…how did your week go???
