WiP Wednesday 6/29

Yay for progress update day!

Short story:
FINISHED!  As of yesterday, this story is done.  I'm still undecided as to whether I'll attempt to get this one published.  It ended up being just over 13K.  Wordy for a short story, yes, but that's how all of mine seem to go.

YA fantasy:
I finished chapter 4.  But haven't written past there yet.  I focused heavily on the short story this week because I wanted to get it done so the creative energy could be concentrated on the YA.  I discovered during the process of writing that story that I can't have two first drafts going at the same time.  It just doesn't work.

Still sitting, waiting for revisions.  Which will start probably in the next week or so.  Just to prove to myself I'm able to revise and draft at the same time.  (Preparing for the eventual day when I hope to be writing under contract.)

How are your WiPs going?

And, please, if you missed yesterday's post on the Stories for Sendai Anthology blog tour, read it and put this anthology on your buy list.  All proceeds are going to aid survivors of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan back in March.


  1. Hi!

    Thought I'd pop over and check out your site after I saw a comment on Nathan's blog.
    Glad I did. Anyone who supports "Stories for Sendai" gets my vote for NEAT PERSON!!!!!

    Best to you-

  2. I have two new WIPs, it's really hard to keep them both going. And then, of course, there's the MS I'm querying. I may cry now... :)

  3. Awesome that you're getting a lot done. Me too.
