First of all, I would like to thank Ifeoma for putting this all together. I have met some great people because of her! The fabulous writers who participated in this have blown me away with their dedication and talent, and have pushed me to better myself as a writer. So, thank you!
Current word count:
So, I had an awesome idea the other night, which then caused me to make some changes to my MS, meaning I had to delete a ton of stuff. Currently I am at 26,002, which is less than last week, but that is because I had to delete a few scenes. I am okay with this, because I now feel like my wip is going in a better direction.
WIP issues this week:
Figuring out that there were too many love triangles. It confused me, so I knew it would definitely confuse my readers. I figured out what to do, though, thanks to my two awesome CPs! Love you René and Jess!
What I learnt this week in writing:
It’s really hard deleting work that you spent so much time on. It physically pained me to delete scenes, but you know what? My writing will be stronger because of it. 🙂
I also learned that when a bunch of people get together with a common goal, amazing things happen. I have been so impressed with the excerpts people have posted, literally blown away. You are all so talented and I am a better person for having met you all.
What distracted me this week while writing:
The usual. Kid, Twitter, daddy putting Desitin under son’s eyes to make it look like war paint *sigh*
Last 200 words: I am not going to post my last 200 this week because it is a major spoiler to my book, and it is very unedited, meaning I wrote it at 11 at night with a few glasses of wine in me…I’m sure it has typos galore and I can’t have that swimming around the internet! 🙂
I look forward to still sprinting with you guys! Even though we aren’t doing WIPMarathon anymore doesn’t mean we can’t still push each other!
