My Weekly Writing Update (7)

Because what's a writing blog without a writing update?

As you have seen, my main focus as of right now is If Only We, a young adult contemporary novel. I am in the process of revising and rewriting this one.

If Only We - current word count is 57,556.

So... I did not get much of anything accomplished here this week. I started working on fixing the chapters by writing them all down in the notebook so I can go through and adjust them. I made too many chapters and it just doesn't work right. Why didn't I just stick with my original chapter plan? I have no idea. This next week I NEED to get back to editing. I am failing miserably when it comes to this. It is very frustrating to me that I still am not getting anywhere. Real life always seems to throw a wrench in the writing plans... but I'm not going to let it bring me down. I am determined to get a boatload of edits and scene changes in by next update..... because when I finally DO get these edits done, I can share with you my new book idea. Not to mention freaking WORK on the new idea. Lol.

By the way, came across this post this morning that I think made my day. J.A. Konrath giving us the play by play of what should be included in your ebook AND in what order. This shall help immensely in a couple months for me, and may be very helpful to you too!!

  1. I hate it when things don't go according to plan. I always set goals for myself during the week that don't always pan out because of what life throws at me. Fingers crossed next week will be better!

    1. I know, right? I try to set some goals, but maybe I should just set the goal to sit down and edit for 15 minutes a day minimum, just so I am actually DOING something. Thanks! :)
