WIP Wednesday


Busy non-fiction week :) I have my proposal finished, minus a few possible quotes. And I finished my query yesterday as well. Soooo, I could technically start querying. I think I'll wait until Monday though :)

On the fiction front, still slow but sure progress. Here are the updated stats:

Total notebook pages: 152 front and back

Pens drained: Still only 5! But I swear it's on its last few drops!!

Approximate word count: 45,600/60,000 = 76% (I decided I didn't need to stress over trying to hit 70,000 as YA books can be anywhere from 50,000 and up, so set a new goal of 60,000 - the stress is much less now) :D

Woo hoo! That's so cool that you are getting that close to being finished with your fiction book.

How exciting! Good luck w/ the querying. Fun and scary at the same time, right? I'm certain all will go fabulously :)

Good luck with your book. My YA hovers around the 50,000 mark too, I think a book is as long as it needs to be.
