WIP Wednesday

Well, I actually managed to stop procrastinating and start working on my WIP :D My goal is to revise a chapter a day (I'm rewriting the book but salvaging what I can so some of these "revisions" are really totally gutting and rewriting but keeping track by chapter is still much easier than by word count) and so far I am a chapter ahead. So I'm pretty happy with myself for the moment.

This is a partial verse novel and I am having a blast writing it. I just hope other people will like it LOL

How are you all doing on your projects?

Michelle, I'm sure we'll love your novel. So glad to know you're having a blast writing it.

To answer your question, I'm revising the first novel I wrote. Adding more sense of place and internalization. Things I've learned a lot about after I wrote it. I decided I didn't want that story to just be a learning exercise that never had my best effort at trying to make it publishable material.

Back to working on it slowly but surely! Good for you for your great goals.

Power to you! Revising is the only way to go:)

Sounds like you're having fun writing this project. (Or rewriting as the case may be.) Good luck with the revision!

I can't even decide what sections constitute chapters in my WIPs. (I'm working on a few WIPs at the same time. It depends on my mood.)

My revisions are showing me too many plot holes and I'm not sure how to plug all of them up. So when I get stuck, I start revising from the start again. Not sure if that's a good idea. Wonder if I'll ever revise to the end.

Way to go, Michelle. It's great that you're having a blast writing and revising. =o)

I'm about where you're at - rewriting but salvaging what I can. I'm making progress and feeling pretty happy about working again. So, it's definitely all good.
