Moving Right Along

So, I’m now half way through chapter 16. Whoo hoo! Just like 30 more chapters to go.

Yep a lot left to do, but I love it. I have written almost 30,000 words, over 100 pages. My outline is awesome. I don’t mean to brag, but I think I’m really going to like this book.

I know I should be writing then. I will. Just taking a break. I haven’t written a blog in a while so I thought I’d spew out my thoughts on here.

Okay, now what? I wish I could get people to comment on here. No one ever does.

How about those Chicago Cubs?

No, too much.

How about questions about your writing–what are you working on? Are you having any problems? Do you just need encouragement?

On a previous post, I talked about scribophile.com. I went head and did premium and started posting chapters, but no one is touching them. What? I was not expecting that. I’m seriously disappointed. I guess everything is seriously disappointing me lately.

  1. I’ve heard of scribophile.com; haven’t tried it. Hopefully you’ll get some reader feedback soon on the site. I’ve realized that the more I write, the fewer people I ask for feedback, just because it gets to be too much, and you can’t please everybody!

    I believe all writers can use encouragement! Ugh. Especially in the first draft stage. So yes! I need encouragement! It’s hard to go from nothing to something, or from how perfect it is in my head to actual words on paper.

  2. I agree! The more critiques I’m getting the more I feel I should just give up. I can never please everyone. I’m realizing that I’m probably not at the sharing-my-work-phase to the world just yet. I need to complete my first draft and be ready to go back for 2nd + drafts at a later time.

    Encouragement to keep going is all I need right now. Brainstorming ideas on how to move on might help too, but going back for actual overhauls is very distracting and discouraging.
