WiP Wednesday, June 17

WIPAnother week, another Wednesday.  But this time I have actual progress to report.  And a lot of it!!!  I started working on the new WiP.  Think Mortal Instruments (by Cassandra Clare) meets Romeo and Juliet, with a strong redemption theme also thrown in.  I am toying with a few titles and found this quote from Mozart’s Requiem (the Lacrimosa section)  that I really love:

“That day of tears and mourning, when from the ashes shall arise

all humanity to be judged”

I have finished about 6000 words.  And it is compeltely outlined, so I am guessing I’ll get a lot done this week.  It’s in third person, something that’s new for me – so I have also been doing some reading to get my “voice” where it needs to be.

As for revisions – not a lot to report there.  I’m holding steady at 2 chapters.  But a good friend has motivated me to work on it over the weekend.

And the NF book – yeah, I have done nothing…though I got some uber-cool quotes to use in the proposal from some of my Betas…so that is something, right.

How about you guys…what kind of progress have you made?

  1. I’m so excited for your wip!

    Me, well I FINISHED! my wip. But I realized I only had another 6,000 words since last week, not the 15K I was expecting.

    Yay for progress!

  2. Congratulations! Wish I could say the same for us, but we are still rut stuck. Doing a lot of reading though, so let’s just call it research, shall we? Fabulous.

    Windy – I think finishing is the most exciting and scariest moment…even with rewrites!

    Elana – if only the 6000 words included a solid beginning – then I would feel better about July.

    Rebecca – I think the quote is pretty cool, too

    Lisa – I would definitely call reading research.

  4. I am always amazed and impressed by how much writing you get done each week, even on weeks when you don’t think you’ve written that much.
    Having a whole book outlined… now that is something I dream of.

    Kate – I don’t know about “zip” along…but I definitely have a good sense of direction on it. So hopefully…

    Annie – Thanks. I really don’t feel like I have accomplished all that much!
