Happy WiP Thursday. I know, I know – this post is a day late. Blog Chain posts can do throw things off sometimes.
It has been an interesting week. I finished my NF book proposal (see Monday’s post for more about that), and another chapter in Walking on the Rim of the Volcano, leaving that project about 30% completed.
I have also been working on revisions of Chaos Within. I got a crazy idea that I simply “needed” to weave into the storyline – and I am so happy I did. So, I spent the better part of last week revising. I managed to get about 25% of the book revised at this point, and hope to finish revisions this month. Then it is off to Betas.
My current WiP, Lacrimosa, has been a bit neglected, staying around 25% completed since last week. I hope to start back on it next week.
I know it is strange working on these projects at once – but actually, I’m not. At least not really. I work on one project until I get stuck. Then, while that project is getting “unstuck” in my head, I work on something else – like a diversion (another project), etc, etc. I have to focus strictly on one project when I am getting close to finishing, or when I am using something for a crit group. My group is starting back up in a few weeks, so I will be full steam ahead with the WiP by then (thus the reason I’d like to finish revisions on Chaos Within before then).
The exception to the way I work is NF books. I can write those at anytime. It is a really different process for me – and similar to the things I write in my job.
Other than writing, I have been doing a lot of reading. Check in tomorrow to see what I have managed to read over the past couple of weeks.
How about you guys? Making good progress? Are you able to work on different projects at once – do you even think that is wise?
