Hello, and welcome to this week’s #WiPWednesday post! #WiPWednesday is a weekly meme started by Brigid Gorry-Hines from Wordfare. Every Wednesday, I’m supposed to post an update about my WiP (Work in Progress), including word count and where I’m at in writing/revising it. Hopefully, doing this meme will keep me motivated to continue working on my WiP.
So let’s get started! I’ll try to fill out these categories as best as I can.
WIP: The L.S. M.S.
Writing or Revising?
Current Word Count: 95, 896
Word count went down, but barely. What can I say? School has been brutal this month. Between beta reading and studies, I’ve barely had time for anything else. Hoping that’ll change over break.
How It’s Going:
Remember how last week I said I was “making very slow progress”? As of now, I’m making even slower progress, haha. After this, I have two weeks of break, though, so hopefully that’ll give me some time to focus on my writing? We’ll see. *gives homework the stink eye*
Goal for Next Week:
I met my goal for last week (get to page 250), but I think I’m going to try something new for next week. I’m hoping to outline my novel down to its bare bones so I can more clearly identify things like plot, villains, character goals, stakes, etc. After I’ve figured out those, I’ll cut/revise any of the scenes that don’t fall in line with my vision for the novel, and go from there. So, long story short, my goal is to get started on a plot outline.
