WiP Wednesdays 1/6

So, it's the first Wednesday of the new year.  It's the first day of change for me.  New year, new school, new degree, new challenges.

On with the updates!

I finally managed to get back into the swing of things a little.  I've officially hit 80% complete on Oracles Promise.  Exciting, I know.

I can't wait to say I hit 100% complete.  Sigh.

Today is the first day of classes.  I won't be around to respond to your comments until this evening.

And even then I might be too wiped out to say much of anything.  Let alone try to write.  I'm going to have to revise my writing schedule and just figure that I'll not get any writing done on Mondays and Wednesdays.  I'll have limited time to write on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Friday through Sunday, though, will be all mine.  I can write to my heart's content.

Needless to say the TBR list will continue to grow until I can manage free time to read.

As for the actual book.  I'm working to wrap up the last chapter before my sort of big climax chapter.  There's going to be the big event that solidifies relationships and acts as the set-up to the culminating events of the major storyline of the book.  There will be loose threads left to continue into book 2, but there will be resolution to some things.  (I hope.)

Friendships are beginning to form, some are becoming even more defined, and things will move quickly to their climax once I finish off this chapter.

There are a couple of reveals that I still need to make.  I'm a bit worried about my pacing on all of the things I've revealed.  But I can tweak that as I revise.

If I revise this book.  This book might become the second novel to be put into the proverbial drawer never to be seen again.

That's all.  Come Friday I'll report about classes and such.  Hope you all have a great day and I'll see you on the flip side.


  1. Congrats! Keep chugging along and you'll be knee deep in edits before you know it!

  2. Great to hear you're making progress!

    Have fun with the new schoolage and get new smarts!

  3. Great progress! I hope you have a wonderful day at school.

  4. 80% is awesome! Have a great first day!

  5. Congrats on the 80%, Stephanie! That is truly awesome. :)

    I read your previous post on the morning pages and think it's a great idea. I still can't believe that class was 8hours/5days! Sheesh! I once took a Chemistry course during a summer session and it was 4hours/5days. I thought my brain was going to melt! lol

    I really admire you determination!

  6. Good luck with your classes! So exciting. And, hey, 80% is better than 0%...which is where I am. :)

  7. Anne, thanks! I can't wait to fall into the revision trenches.

    Windy, thanks!

    Susan, thanks!

    Sarah, thanks! As for the class, we did have like an hour for lunch. But, yeah, it got kind of intense.

    Elana, I've been there, too. You can do it! And thanks!
