Weekly Progress Check-In

Welcome!  This is the Mid-Willamette Valley RWA chapter's weekly progress check-in.

Did you meet your writing goals last week?  What do you plan to accomplish this week?


Paty Jager said...

14,000 words from last Monday to this Monday. Tomorrow I'll be writing the last scenes! Yay!

Then I'll start editing.

Woo-hoo on the word count, Paty! That's awesome! (And glad you commented--checking in had slipped my mind. :)

I'm very pleased with progress on edits to the fourth book of my LEGACY series. Found a great book about the NY City Bomb Squad--my hero is a bomb tech--that's added realism to this story. After double-checking events in the overall series, also came up with a new scene that absolutely had to be included. In writing this scene, the characters revealed info that will be vital in resolving one of the "big" mysteries of the entire series. LOVE these times in writing when the muse takes over my fingers and the story comes together so beautifully!

I'm also planning promotion. First, to continue my Rock'n'Romance blog. Then for two previously released anthologies--one for Valentine's Day and the other for St. Patrick's Day--which will launch on January 1 with the other authors who participated in the anthologies. And also for my LEGACY series, which will start with teasers in January and build up to the release of the first book in March.

More edits and promo planning coming up this week!

May you all be productive even with the holidays upon us!

WTG Genene! It is great when scenes pop into your head!

Annabeth Albert said...

WTG Genie & Paty! Wahoo, Paty! Way to get that momentum back.

I got around 1400 words last week. Christmas is sucking my time & family stuff & children who will not sleep are taking the rest.

Hoping for more words this week. I want to be at the halfway point or further by the 1st. (I'm at 22,800 of 60,000 target)

Hi, Annabeth/Bethany! Even if you didn't get as many words as you had planned last week, you're still moving forward. So hooray! Looking forward to seeing you after the new year!

Paty Jager said...

Annabeth/Bethany, any words is better than no words. I have faith you'll meet your goal.

For those interested- The End!
The last chapters zipped off to my CP and now I start at the beginning sparkling and shining Logger.

I'm interested, Paty! THE END is definite cause for celebration! Hope you're at least happy dancin' around your computer a bit before you start on LOGGER. :)
