A Little on Writing

Today I finished my Work in Progress. 81,000 words. It was actually a revision - a second draft. But there were huge departures from the first - so parts of it felt like I was writing it from scratch. There were times I didn't think I'd ever get through the last third of it. But today the ending came to me (it came sooner than I was expecting, I thought I had another couple of chapters). And it's done. Now my wonderful writing critique group gets a go at it.

Now I can go back to the story that I was tracking my progress on in the progress meter on the sidebar. Poor little progress meter, abandoned for so long. Hopefully there will be some movement there soon (Hopefully I'll remember how to update the progress meter!)

Go, critique group, go!
Can't wait to read it :)

Wow, you are a writer as well as an editor? I am new so I had no idea. How very exciting! Will we all get to read your masterpiece when the critique group is through with it? :-) Yay!

If a publisher agrees to publish my masterpiece, everyone will get a chance to read it! (Here's hoping!)

Wahoo! Wasn't it awesome to write The End?

Christine M said...

Dang, I knew I forgot something. I never wrote "The End". Huh.

The very last line is cute and funny. I look forward to reading your book, Christine.

God bless you!
