50k Progress

 
I'm actually doing pretty good with my 50k. Granted my first draft is everywhere, but that's okay. Revisions are the greatest. I'm at 34k on BOUND, which is great. I need to get more words out at night, but I've been so busy lately. Hopefully my life settles down soon. :) Since I post every other day, Wednesday posts are going to be short. Just a quick update on my writing goals and I want to hear yours in the comments!

How are you guys doing? Are you going to make your writing goals by August?

Have a lovely day!

Great going toward the 50K! You'll get there, no worries. Summer is a busy time of year. My goals? to do a Round 2 of revisions for my agent, so I can go on sub in the fall. Woo!

Congrats!

I think I will probably make my goals by August. I'm at 27k words right now and I'm currently unemployed so I have no excuse and not much else to do.

I'm having the time of my life, in all honesty.

Maggie said...

I think I'm on track with my goals right now. Good job on Bound!

Phil said...

You've over 2/3 the way there! So close! You're BOUND to be done soon ;)

I am hoping to begin my first draft by August. I am still working out the story and outline, and I want those in good shape before jumping into writing.

I was on track last week, but these last few days have put me off track, hopefully I'll catch up this weekend. Congrats on 34K.

Hi Chantele- Good for you. I'm jealous. I am lagging behind on my goal (to finish first draft of MG novel by July 15). Your update will hopefully light a fire under me.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Carol Riggs Yay for being so close to going on sub! Woot! ;)
@Stephanie McGee Thank you!!
@Cynthia Lee I'm so glad you'll make your goal! Crossing my fingers for you! :)
@Maggie Great job, Maggie! :D
@Phil Ha! BOUND to be done! ;) Good luck on outlining! I'm a pantser, but am converting to plotting for my next book. We'll see how that goes. :)
@Patti I've been there. No writing time and so many other things to do. Not fun. You'll get it though. We just keep plugging along, right? ;)
@Megan Yay! Hopefully it WILL light a fire! Finish that first draft, girl! ;)

Congrats on the word count! It's nice to know too that someone else's first draft is everywhere. :) Makes me motivated to finish my WIP, no matter how much revising it needs after.

Way to go! You're making serious progress. You'll hit 50k in no time!

New follower here! Great job on setting goals. I especially like that you're blogging about them. Once it's out in blogger land you're committed. Very smart.
