WIP Wednesday and a Book List Update
Ah, this week was a good week! Though it didn't seem like it. But once I started adding up numbers and chapters, it really was productive :D That's always fun to report.
Non-fiction - 2.5 chapters written for a total of 4.5/25 = 18% done
I also started querying, very slowly. Just sent out a few queries, but have received one request so far, so doing well there.
Fiction - did awesome today! In fact, probably 90% of my wordage this week came from today's haul. It helps when the hubby takes the kids out of the house for a couple hours :D So, the stats are:
Notebook pages = 162 front and back, 1 front only
Pens drained = still only 5!!!
I'm telling you, #6 is hanging on for dear life. But I took it apart tonight just to see how much I've got left, and it really shouldn't be too much longer. I think they may have put more ink in this pen than in the others...it's the only explanation I can think of.....
Approximate total wordage = 48,750/60,000 = 81% done!!
I think I might actually start typing up the manuscript in a few days also. I might write one more scene in my notebooks, but I've sort of gotten to where most of the scenes are written except for the very end and a few in betweens - only I've jumped around so much I'm not sure where the holes are that need to be filled. So, I'm going to write one more scene that I'm sure needs to be in there, and then type the whole thing up. Then I will see what my actual word count is and I can start filling out some scenes where necessary and patch the holes :) I am very excited I am so close!
And for the Reading List Update (yep, I actually managed to read a book this week!)
#20 So Still the Night by Kim Lenox - this is book 2 in her Shadow Guards series and I enjoyed it every bit as much as book 1. I highly recommend them!
How is everyone doing on their WIPs? Getting any reading or writing done?
