So, how is everyone doing?


How is your WIP going?

How’s life?

My WIP is going along (slowly) but at least is going. If everything works out as I predict I should be wrapped up with the first draft (my 5th first draft) the reason I call it a first draft instead of revision, is because of the amount of changes.

I find my dialog and characters are good, far better than I would have thought. My ability to narrate and write well constructed sentences so it’s not so “herky-jerky” for the reader, is my down fall.

The problem is my attempt to fix these issues, every time it seems worse than when I started… so I’m moving on to completion and will seek help from the Pro (Shakespeare) when I’m done.

Thx for any comment you might leave.

Best of luck to you all… lord knows I need it.


  1. Whooo, you know Shakeespeare? cool!

    Congratulations on being so close to being done with your first round...

  2. Hurray! I'm the pro!

    My WIP is not doing too hot... but you've put the fire under me, for I want November clear for NaNoWriMo... I cancelled a movie date this afternoon, and from now on it's work, work, work!

    When do you think you will finish?

  3. Who knows, I sure don't... I'm going to do a full read and see where it stands. could be 3 weeks or at the most 6. my goal is by Thanksgiving.

    I'll let you know when I get closer. if your busy when i do... you're worth waiting for.


  4. Jeff, you are too sweet! Thanksgiving might be okay, since NaNoWriMo will be winding up...

  5. Hey... hang in there. We always think it's worse than it is. I'm moving forward on my WIP and hope to wrap it up in a couple of weeks... may not make that deadline, but I'm shooting for it.

    I find it's best to do all you can, then get an outside set of eyes on it to give you a fresh look. That sounds like just what you are about to do, so you're on the right track.

    Keep writing....

  6. Best wishes to you in the completion of your WIP!

  7. Right now Im preparing for NaNoWriMo. This is my first year and Im soo Excited!
