WIPs Update

WIP 2 

Word count has reached 5K+ mark, so that's progress. I am happy to say that I have stuck to my daily goals - 500 words on weekdays, and 1000 words on Saturday and Sunday. Quite low, but realistic word count for my otherwise full schedule. 

Currently I am at the beginning of the book, and for these initial scenes I did have some outline of what's supposed to happen, so real challenge will begin when I go further into the novel, and haven't managed to work out the nitty-gritties. 


Editing continues. I do need to spend much more time on this. I make a point of doing at least a little bit everyday, but it certainly needs much more intense sessions. Hoping to make that happen over the coming weekend. What I have found is that I have good times and bad times. Some times I really get into editing, and then I enjoy it, and take pleasure in going over every line and improving it. At other times, I get too impatient and just make superfluous changes - not a very good thing, since I know I have to go over it again. 

But over all, productivity continues so that's the main thing. 

How are things going with your WIPS? 


  1. Well, you already know how much I adore your continuously writing discipline ... so, I guess, from that weekend on I want to follow your example and focus this month more on my own novel!

    Happy writing! :-)

  2. My NaNo 2010 novel is about half edited...and that's only "superficial" editing, like typos, etc. I haven't begun to go through the actual story and fix plot hols and such.

    My other WIP I have been writing for 2 years now, and it stands at 41k, but it is only half finished. But just 2 days ago, I started writing the second half! So hopefully it will go well. *fingers crossed*

    Hope editing goes well for you, Dolly!
