autumn lishky, Camp Nanowrimo, Frodo, magic margarita, paranormal erotica, shitty first draft, Wooing the Alpha, writing update
Check out my writing vlog where I work my way through the end of my first draft thanks to some magic margaritas.
Week two went great! Not only did I log more minutes than I needed to, but I finished Wooing the Alpha. I’m still in shock.
Beyond that, I’ve logged some words in my other stories, done some story planning in my other series, and nearly finished editing Cycle Seven. Next week, I’ll read it to my mom.
As far as I am, I feel like I have a long way to go still. But next week, I plan to celebrate, at least a little bit, for the giant milestone that finishing a draft is, especially one that’s currently 1,011 pages and 264,000 words.
I took me fifteen and a half months.
Don’t worry, though, those damn blurbs are still driving me bonkers.
So, let’s look at my final numbers:
Week Two | July 4-10
Minutes Logged: 665/630
Minutes Ahead: 50 (Whoo!)
Words Written: 2,964
I’m ahead of the game, and it feels wonderful.
Let me know how your writing is going this July in the comments below, and I’ll see y’all next week for another update.
