Yay! This has been a productive week for me, especially in comparison to the previous couple of weeks.
Including Sunday, and not including today, I’ve written 1,329 words on Cracked and at least 1,000 words during my Cavendish revisions/rewrites, so that brings me to 2,329 for the week so far, which averages out to 776 words per day, which far exceeds my adjusted ROW80 goal of 300 words per day, and even exceeds (by a smidge!) my original goal of 750 words per day.
I mean, this isn’t really that much, but relatively speaking, it’s tremendous!
I reworked the Cracked prologue and am almost finished with it. I’ve halted the fairy tales for now because I needed a break from them.
Re: Cavendish, I’ve basically completed my first round of post-betas rewrites & revisions. I’m very happy with the feedback I got from my brilliant, wonderful, spectacular betas, and there are a few rough spots here and there I still need to smooth out, but overall, revisions are going as swimmingly as this plucky chica:
So, whew! I’m glad to finally be making this kind of progress again. Said progress has been at least partially made possible by The Really Frickin’ Ginormous and Nationwide Snowpocalypse, which left us North Texans with several inches of ice and snow, not to mention below zero wind chills. I mean, seriously. This is TEXAS we’re talking about. We’re not equipped to deal with this craziness — technologically, mentally, emotionally. Therefore, the entire metroplex shut down, and I’m enjoying a couple of cozy days at home with Mom. Her first chemo treatment was actually supposed to be today, but her doctor’s offices closed, so they’re moving that to Thursday. It’s for the best, really. I did NOT want to be hoofing it across the metroplex in this weather, especially with us being already freaked out because of, you know, the CHEMO. Oy.
Anyway, I’m starting to ramble. Here’s the linky for the other intrepid ROW-ers.
Also, if you’re interested, do check out my regular post for today, all about how talkative we writers can be, and if that can be a bad thing, especially during the first draft stage.
