Another Wednesday, another update. I always look forward to these. 🙂
I’ve done pretty well with writing this week, I have to say. I’m not quite as far as I would like to be, but I’ve still done pretty well for barely having any of the weekend to write.
Days of the Kill is still with the editor. I thought I would be working on it by now, but I’m not. I don’t mind, though. She’s taking the time she needs, and I totally respect that. I’m glad she is. She’s still a fairly new copy-editor, but the work I’ve seen so far is absolutely amazing.
Something weird happened with The Path to Biological. It wouldn’t take me to the place that I stopped at, so I had to start over with the third draft. It was disappointing, but I’ll be alright. Maybe I’ll still reach my deadline anyway. Well, my self-imposed deadline. Really, it’s okay. I’ll get through some of that faster this time, and I have Saturday dedicated to writing, anyway. 🙂
I’ve done really well with The Child of Fault this week. I’m getting really close to having 30,000 words written. I found this spreadsheet on my Writing Accountability Group on Facebook, so now I’m forced to write at least that many words a day. But, I’m not complaining. It makes sure I write so I meet my deadline. I’m not going to complain about that!
I have now reached five videos for my vlog. I’ll be doing my sixth today. I got my first couple comments last night. They were mean ones, like, “Go kill yourself,” and “You’re a stupid bitch.” I hadn’t really thought about how I would react to the horrible comments that can happen, but I decided you know what? These people don’t even know me. They don’t know what I’m really like. Yes, I’m extremely awkward and maybe not the most comfortable in front of a camera, but I decided to do a vlog so I can maybe expand my audience. I’m not letting a few mean comments get in my way. And hey, even though they didn’t like it, they still took time to watch. And besides, it’s called The Awkward Writer for a reason. 🙂
Well, I guess that’s about it for this week. Hopefully I’ll have Days of the Kill back by next week. Until then…stay tuned!
