total words to date: 89,799

pages: 397

chapters revised: 21/21 (draft 3)

Previous goals:

  • chapter critique  - done.  
  • write first scene of T.C. - brainstormed, but didn't actually write it yet 
  • read a good chunk of Liz's manuscript - read some. don't know if it would constitute a good chunk... will read more! :-)  
  • plan details for B's birthday party - pretty set on what I want to do. nothing too complicated, as he'll only be 4.

Goals for next week:

  • chapter critique
  • write first scene of T.C. 
  • send party invites (soon!)
  • enter first chapter contest 
  • move website "news and updates" to its own page 

 

I revised the opening of EotF... again... I took the better elements from the two previous versions, then made a couple other changes. Now I get to resist making more changes to the rest of the manuscript until I can get some overall feedback. You can now read the first two pages (in addition to some other excerpts) over at my website for EotF.
