Write On!

Yesterday was a very productive writing day. I'm deep into re-writes on my WIP. I feel good about it. It's not a finished product yet but, it's well on it's way. I've been inspired lately by my friend Marcia Colette. Her book STRIPPED is doing well and getting some awesome reviews.

I had to change the begining of chapter one a bit but, I like it better. More tension, quicker introduction of antagonist and deeper character development and the flow is smoother. As Terry Spear would call it, 3-D character development is in full swing!

Heading to BAM today to purchase a book on self editing after a couple of hours of rewrites. I want as polished a product as possible before I start the querying process. My beta reader is dying to get her hands on it also. I have someone in mind to critique the first ten pages or so.

UPDATE:

Chapter three re-written/tweaked and printed. Feeling like a real writer today:)

I'm glad the writing is coming along nicely. I've been quiet, but writing on and steady. My urban fantasy MS is moving slow, but my secret project is on fire!

I'm still waiting for Marcia's book. Borders is making me very unhappy right now ;-(

Thanks Magaly. My writing is coming along slowly too. I'm forever editing, changing and re-writing. I'm not easy to please when it comes to my writing.

I have set new goals with my writing. I haven't submitted anything since "Raven's Transformation" was published. And I'm feeling kind of bad about that right about now.

I see our girl Marcia is moving right along. I'm with you, I haven't received my copy of her book yet either.

Well, it's back to re-writes:(
