WIP Wednesday


I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and am barreling ahead as fast as I can....well as fast as I can still doing the best work I can do, of course :D I have several more chapters finished. I now have only 5 chapters left in my non-fiction book, so it is 79% done. Woohoo!!

Well, that is unless I add another chapter I have been thinking of adding. And the intro... LOL still awfully close to being done though ;D

I am about half way through Rebel Angels by Libba Bray also - hopefully I can add that one to my reading list next week.

And once this non-fiction book is done, I will focus the vast majority of my energies on major edits for my YA before that too goes off to my agent in the hopes she'll want to represent my fiction as well as my non-fiction (can we say nervous!!!)

All in all a very good week :D How is everyone else doing?

I just have to post this for everyone - seriously a wonderful article. I laughed and nodded in agreement the whole way through. It's a definite must read (I even printed it out. Give them the finger! is my new motto) ;-D

I loved the article! Sometimes when I'm bogged down in editing I have to remind myself that I can break rules. There are far too many rules out there- if I want a prologue or want to use a really big, fat word, that's okay. It's my book and I can write it however I want to!

Of course, if a publisher ever wants it those parts might get edited, but I can't worry about that while I'm writing. :)

I'm right with ya, raising my medial dactyl! A little attitude can rattle things up, shake 'em loose.

Congrats and good luck! I'm sure you'll find an agent quickly for your fiction if your current agent doesn't want it.
