Hello Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ll be taking a couple weeks off while I finish my latest WIPs. I’ll be back soon.
I’ve been busting my butt on three manuscripts. One I’ve already sent to a beta, but couldn’t get the end of the story out of my head. Now, I know why. There was something missing. This week, I added that something missing and forwarded the updated chapter to my beta.
I moved right on to another manuscript. Finished another read through/polishing pass and sent it to a different beta.
I didn’t stop there. I took another look at the third manuscript, realized it was ready for a second pair of eyes and sent it to yet a different beta reader.
Three manuscripts out to beta readers.
To be honest. I have no idea which of the three I’ll get back first or which is in the best shape. Good news. I love each of these stories and I cannot wait to share them. I just hope one of them will be in its best possible shape soon so I can hit send.
I want to hit send.
So much work and now I have so much waiting to do. Ugh. I will not be twiddling my thumbs while I wait to hear back from the betas. I’ve begun work on a new short story. 🙂
The Goals – week-10 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- done.
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- done. I added 1k between the three manuscripts this week.
- Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual and daily breaks from technology)– done. I had a crazy week. I busted my butt all week and then on Friday I drove to my home town and surprised one of my best friends. Our other best friend flew home from Seattle too. We surprised the heck out of our friend. It was AWESOME!! I may be exhausted now, but it was so worth it. I love those girls. They lift my spirits and inspired no less than 5 stories in one night. 🙂
What you might have missed here this week:
I had no new posts last week. Sorry about that, but I’ll have a few posts this week, including a review for a fabulous book by one of my favorite authors. Loved it! A cover reveal on Tuesday and new flash fiction at the end of the week. It’s going to be a great week here at the Maylee ehouse.
