I can’t believe it’s over already! (True, I only participated in half of it, but it still flew by!) I’ll be sure to check back in with the monthly updates.
Last Check-in Wordcount + ChapterCount (+ scene count if you’re revising): 22,821 words and eight and a half chapters
Current WC + CC (or SC): 27,301 words and ten and a half chapters
WIP Issues this week: Nothing too much, just finding the time to write, as usual. And I went back to switching tenses. I thought I was over that. I think my next ms will have to be in present again since I clearly want to write that way. (Watch me keep writing in past when I work on that one, though.)
What I learned this week in writing: I’m still “off synopsis,” but I’m getting closer to getting back on track. I also learned you can really miss writing for one character who hasn’t appeared in a while. (I want to get further into the story so that character can come back already!)
What distracted me this week while writing: Mostly work, but early in the week I actually had free time I could have used to write, but I had a bad head cold and couldn’t focus, d’oh. I’m better now, though.
Last 200 words: Can’t because it’s the sequel to my book releasing next year
Plans After WIPMarathon: I’m going to keep working on this sequel. I may not be finding as much time to write as I would like (and I only worked on ONE of my many goals at the start of the WIPMarathon this whole time! But it was the most important one), but even juggling all I juggled in January, I managed to get a significant chunk done. I’m surprised, actually. It felt like I had NO TIME to write, but that clearly wasn’t true. That gives me hope that even when I’m overwhelmed by the rest of my life, I will find a way to write, even if it’s not every day, and it’ll help keep me sane.
