Writing

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.

Writing

Happy but Freaking

I finally did it. After all these years of writing, I finally entered in my first writing competition.

I’m so excited, but I’m freaking out too. It will be a long while before I find out anything.

So in the meantime, I’m plotting my novel. I’m starting over again with my writing because of reading Maxwell Alexander Drake’s book on Story Creation. I loved it by the way. I’m excited about this novel, but I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing at this point. I’ve plotted out 20 scenes, but I’m kinda “pantsing” it at this point. Is that okay?

I’m “pantsing” the plotting–that sounds ridiculous.

I’d also like to work on some more editing. If you have a manuscript you’d like copy edited before you send it off to an agent, contact me. Owl Fix It Editing Services is looking for more manuscripts. Check out our website at http://www.owlfixitediting.com
