At last, the Fast Draft story is finished. I have a beginning, middle and end. Now to let it sit and work on other projects for a while. Then I'll go back and edit, revise and add. The writing is the easy part. It's all the hard work afterward to make the story the best it can be that brings out all the sweat and tears.
I'm about half way through getting the first book critiqued. I've learned so much since writing that first manuscript. It's really exciting to see how my craft has improved over the years. You've got to keep writing to get better. I can see that fact so clearly now.
And Nano starts November 1. So I'm plotting out the book on paper this time. Trying to make it easier for myself to stay on track. We'll see what happens. : )

Friday at last. These weeks seem to drag. At least for me. And I still don't get as much done as I'd like to. Organization! That's what I need. Maybe someday I'll come up with a schedule that works. Right now too many things pop up out of the blue on a daily basis to make and stick to one. I know, I know, my life would be so much easier. : )

Working to find the time to finish WIP and revising everyday. But no new pages. And that really bums me out. :( NaNoWriMo will start Nov. 1. So I need to be finished to focus all my creativity on something brand new for a whole month!

Time Gets Away!

September came and went and I'm still trying to figure out where all my time was spent. : ) Kids can sure keep you busy.

Still working on revisions with my critique partners, finishing up the story I started in Fast Draft, and getting ready to take the NaNo WriMo Challenge. A book in a month shouldn't be that hard after Fast Draft, right? 7 pages a day for 30 days should do it. Getting all my research sorted out so I can just focus on the writing.

As soon as I finish up with revisions it'll be Agent Query time. Yikes!
