One of Those Rare WIP Updates





First off, I'm awesome! Elana said so. Go check out her awesomeness post. She's awesome in my book! Anyway, it's been a while since I updated you on my writing projects. Or at least it feels like it has been. I've been working on The Ransomed Returning for seven months. As of last night, I have written 18 chapters and 285 pages or approximately 60,500 words.


Combine that with "Consecrated," my novella, and I've written 84,000 words over the past year.


That's a record for me, at least in the past decade or so. Last year at this time, I increased my weekly writing goal from 5 pages per week to 10 pages per week. Now, I'm going to increase it to 15 pages per week. That didn't work out so well last week, but at least I got 10. My official goal for this week is 13 pages, but secretly I'd like to write 18 pages, and reach page 300 by the end of the week. Go me. I am awesome, after all.

Way to go! It feels wonderful to see one's own progression, doesn't it? Even if it doesn't go as fast as I'd like, I'm glad to see myself moving forward and not slipping back. Congratulations!

Congratulations, very disciplined. I admire your goal setting and commitment to getting it done. I'll be "rootin'" for you!

Rosslyn Elliott said...

That is really great! Good for you. I know it's rewarding to set goals and meet them. Now if I can just make it through the end of the week... :-)

VERY awesome!

So, do you actually write in those notebooks, or are they just for notes? (Inquiring minds want to know.)

Angie said...

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! Wendy, yes, I do write by hand in the notebooks. The purple one contains the novel and the pink the novella.

Diana Paz said...

Congratulations on your awesomeness! I agree :) I also have a little award for you on my blog, if you're in the mood :)

Great job! So awesome to add a little at a time and not push yourself all at once. That's the best way to meet every goal.

Yes, you are! Good luck! The stats are so fun!
