Current Project:THE BABY'S BODYGUARD
Status: pg. 180
Egads! I hoped to be twenty pages further along by today but here I am. Well, I have excuses ranging from sick days to, well, sick days, but in the end it's the inevitable stop and go traffic pattern of writing that slowed me down as I figured out this and that and the other thing.
Properly humbled, I will do the math -- hang on a minute, please....
Okay, for me personally, I need one hundred pages in four weeks. Twenty-five pages a week. More if I plan to have time to let it sit a couple of days and polish. I've been heavily rewriting as I go this time, going back and forth a lot to even things out and correct oversights, etc... Other than writing in a mother for the heroine (and then quickly shipping her off to Greece for a romantic honeymoon with husband number four) I'm pretty set. My dh told me he wishes I wouldn't speed through action scenes. I'm working on how I feel about adapting his comments. Feedback is nice.
And now I turn the stage over to you with a leading question: Is anyone doing the write the book in a month thing that I can't recall the name of? And what is that called?
