Well, it’s that time again. This time I only have one project to update you on.
Mirror, Mirror (YA traditional fantasy)
I’ve made some progress. Thanks to a temp job and a sudden move across state lines, August was a rather unproductive month for me. I’m settling back into a semblance of normal and have been getting some writing done. Usually this happens at night right before bed. Which I’m fine with.
I filled the first notebook (I’m writing this one longhand) and moved into the second. When that happened I also started to type out what’s already been written. I’m probably sitting around 29K-30K words right now so I am probably going to end up adding a lot in when I go through and revise. There is room for it as I tend to be pretty spare in my setting and action descriptions on the first draft. Especially in dialogue passages. The first revision usually largely addresses the floating head syndrome.
In all, I plan to be done with this book’s first draft by the end of the month.
How are your WiPs going?
