Writing Report

For anyone who may by looking for it, my Casting Call Post is below this one.


I have been revising like crazy all month. That simple POV switch turned out to be a lot more work than I envisioned, but I'm almost done. Here is where I stand numbers wise.

37/39 chapters switched to all 3rd person POV (I'm on scene two in chapter 32)
2/4 new scenes written
87,946 Current word count
475 Printed pages 5x8 size book (According to Scrivener)
2 publishers waiting to receive the full MS for review (Hopefully, with baited breath)

My goal? Finish by the end of this week so I can send in my submissions before starting Nano.
Wish me luck!

And then there's Nano. My location for the Kick-off party fell through. That means I'll be driving around begging for a new one today. First pick? This place...
I couldn't find an actual picture, but let's just say its a dream hang out for the artsy at heart. Mismatched furniture, comfy chairs, cool light fixtures made from all kinds of 'found' things, and French pastries! It's my favorite place for write-ins. Plus it's open 24 hours a day.

Update: I got Amelie's! Unfortunately, it isn't free. Hopefully, my fellow wrimos will donate a dollar or two.

Oh, and...

I wanted to ask you a question. Would you be interested in guest posting on my blog in November?

I know I'm going to be sporadic at best with doing Nano and MLing my home area--plus all that other stuff I'm supposed to be doing. However, I don't want to leave you high and dry for an entire month. Or just pop in with a word count reports--although I'm sure there will be plenty of that.

So, if you are interested, email me at charity.bradford@gmail.com and tell me what day you would like and what topic you will cover.
Thanks!

  1. Why are you doing nano? We already know you can finish a novel. The whole premise of nano is to get writers to finish a novel so that you can get into the mode of being a writer. Charity you can write a novel faster than I can bake a batch of cookies. I say take a break for November.

  2. Michael, Nano is a cover for my family. It gives me the excuse to hide and get some immersion writing done on whatever project I'm working on. Plus, after doing Nano, they become quite happy with my plan for writing just two hours a day. ;)

  3. Rewriting anything always takes longer than you think it will.

    Good luck on NaNo. I'm way to chicken to attempt it.

    And I left you a little meme on my blog: http://lawsofgravity.blogspot.com/2011/10/another-meme.html
