Progress still good

So far so good. Almost through a first edit on the NaNoWriMo novel. I had anticipated having done by today, but family commitments got in the way a bit last week. However, I'm happy with progress, I can see the holes in the plot and areas that need work. Looking forward to the next stage.

Just popping in briefly...

To say that the BI50D challenge is going well. I've gradually increased my editing word count target each week and, so far, have reached them. Almost through a first edit, then the rewriting, remoulding, filling out, removing begins. I'm excited - the book is really taking shape.

Back again

Took a bit of a step back during December. I did continue to write most days - which pleased me. Even participated in a BIAW, achieving my goal for once.

Now in a BI50D (yes, book in 50 days) challenge with some NZ writer friends. This leads up to the RWNZ full manuscript contest. Not sure if I will enter yet. This will depend on the progress of the story I've chosen to work on - the draft from NaNoWriMo.

Set a goal of writing/editing 4000 words for Jan 1-4. Well, the DH was still off work. Need I say more? Have set myself 8000 for 5-11 Jan. Back soon.
