WIPMarathon Check-In #6 (2)

I only managed to fiction write three days this week (so much for aiming for 5-6 days per week), but I still made some progress.

Last Check-in Wordcount + ChapterCount (+ scene count if you’re revising): 14,947 words and 5 1/2 chapters

Current WC + CC (or SC): 19,391 words and seven chapters

WIP Issues this week: I’m still having a little trouble keeping my tenses straight, but it’s getting better. Instead of writing almost every sentence in present tense and then having to fix it, it’s like 1 in 10 in present.

What I learned this week in writing: I’m working off a synopsis and this entire section that probably needs to be 5-ish chapters is like two sentences in my synopsis because it didn’t seem that important, just part of a slow build-up. So it’s kind of been fun discovering how I’m making those two sentences come to life. More drama and tension that I anticipated, which is good.

What distracted me this week while writing: Work, so much work. I saw a couple of movies this week, too.

Last 200 words: Can’t share due to spoilers.

    1. I used to never do that, but now I always do. It feels much better to know where I’m going! And things still change (one time I threw out the end of a synopsis as I was writing and re-wrote it), so it’s not like I’m confined to it. ^^

      Thanks, you too!

    1. Thanks! 😀 I could do so much more if I wrote all the days in a week. XD Ah, well.

      Uh, the synopsis to show agents when querying is insane. What was it like, 2 pages? I had such a hard time getting my story into 2 pages! This synopsis was mostly for me, and for my agent and a few others, but I wasn’t confined to page length for once, yay! Good luck with yours, and your writing this week!
