Creative Refueling

I'm at just over 50,000 of my 80,000-word rewrite. That's just over 62% through the revision! Better yet I only have about 12 scenes left to write! With most scenes averaging around 1,500 words or 2,000 words, I'm looking at only 18k - 24k words! It'll be a little less than 80,000, so I'm further… Continue reading Creative Refueling

When hitting a goal is a needed boost

I'm officially OVER halfway through my book revisions. While the first half of the book felt like pushing a boulder up a mountain, the second half seems to be like trying to catch the boulder as it rolls down the hill on the other side. I know it's finally at the end stretch, but I… Continue reading When hitting a goal is a needed boost

Almost Halfway!

I am thrilled with where my book is going. I'm almost to the halfway point! I'm a little over 35,000 words in (and aiming for 80,000). Being directly in the middle usually causes me a lot of grief with books, but this time is different. There's a warning among the writing community about "squishy middles"… Continue reading Almost Halfway!
