WiP Wednesday 4/14 — April 14, 2010

WiP Wednesday 4/14

Well, it’s that time again.  Time for me to face the music and admit whether I accomplished anything this past week.

*sounds of a funeral dirge begin to ring through the air*

Um, guys?  *looks to the soundbooth*  Wrong tape!  You’re supposed to be playing “Fanfare for the Common Man!”  (Boy does that bring back memories.)

Anyways.

I’ve actually made a bit of progress this week.  I’m over 25,000 words into the story and I really feel like it’s coming along nicely.  I’m excited to finish this and do some minor tweaks to it prior to sending it to betas.  Hopefully that will come in a couple of months from now.

Guys, I really feel like this could be the first manuscript I carry all the way.  And that’s an exciting feeling.

I’ve moved both the internal and external conflict forward in a very nice direction.  The stakes are continuing to be upped and the triangle is developing well.

I’m loving this journey.  Most times, it doesn’t feel like work when I’m writing this manuscript.  And that’s a feeling that’s kind of got me worried.

How are your WiPs coming along?
