Sunday Report Card

NaNo Day 27:
Viking-2—1777 words
TW—1364 words

Almost there. Almost there. Almost there. I feel like the little engine that could. Three days left and I can see the end in sight, but I have to keep glued to this chair. Can’t let up a second.

This week was a bit of a mixed bag. I took two days off to visit with relatives who came in from Iowa. We went shopping (I bought some beautiful baroque, champagne-colored pearl earrings—that took care of my jewelry fix). But those two days cost me dearly. I had to write for 13 hours straight yesterday. Will do the same today. I will not miss my deadlines!

So, summing up, this last week, I:
* Added 34 pages to Viking-2. I completed heavy edits for chapters 1-16.
* Added 20 pages to TW, and completed heavy edits for chapters 1-2.
* Read around 20 stories for Girls Who Bite, and assigned them to the Reject/Maybe/Yes! folders.
* Completed final line edits for True Heart (coming January 4th!).

By Wednesday of this week, I have to:
* Finish edits of chapters 17-23 of Viking-2.
* Finish writing chapters 5-7 of TW and complete editing too!
* Finish reading all GWB stories, revise those I’m keeping, and plunk them into the manuscript.

Let’s hope I can keep up the pace, because I HATE to be late. Y’all have a terrific week. Think of me. Almost there. Almost there…

    Go Delilah! Go Delilah! Keep chugging along.

    I’m happy to say I finished my NaNo project. Last night. Its pretty rough right now and there’s a voice whispering in the back of my head that keeps saying she isn’t too pleased with the end. But the bones are there.

    Brandy! Congrats on the early NaNo finish! My sister always says, “You can’t edit a blank page, but you can edit crap.” So don’t worry if it’s messy!

    Diane! Thank for the encouragement!

    Valerie! I don’t feel disciplined. Just scared shitless I won’t finish in time. Fear’s a great motivator. :mrgreen:
