My Weekly Writing Update (29)

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 total is 57,556.
current revision word count is 28,067

That's right. 5011 words. SCORE. What's funny is that I keep thinking that the revising is going to take a lot of time. I mean, it DOES take time, especially when you hit a part that needs to be changed a lot. But this last week? It went a lot smoother and faster than I expected for all that I did. And I had to REALLY fix one chapter (blast you chapter seventeen!!! ) and change around a few other little things. I feel SO SUPER EXCITED and proud of myself for getting that far. If I can keep this up, I should be able to have it out for betas shortly.

Speaking of which... and I mentioned this last week... a cover is in the works. I have the ever-so-amazing-and-lovely Marie Landry (yep, the author!) making it for me. She designed all of her own covers, and a cover for Kymber C. Hawke's novel, Secrets In The Blood. It shouldn't be much longer before the cover is complete (AHHHH!!!!! ), so I will be making an announcement Monday asking for people to help with a cover reveal. I'll also have a post up within the next couple weeks asking for beta readers as well, so keep an eye out for that if you are interested. If you're not interested in beta reading but WOULD be interested in reading and reviewing If Only We for your blog or Goodreads, I would love it if you would let me know. There will be an official post for that in the coming weeks as well.


I have a special announcement to share with all of you tomorrow. I would just announce it today BUT I still need to do a couple more things first. I'll explain why tomorrow. There will be a post about it on here AND on my book review blog, Thoughts At One In The Morning. *holds the suspense* ;)
