Christy started her 50K IN 50 DAYS personal challenge.
Day 1: She wrote just over 1k after debating whether or not to write HIDDEN CHARMS in present tense. (The decision was made after comparing two paras in past to two paras in present. She felt the text in present tense added a sense of danger (or something like that). It made the writing come alive in a way that past tense lacked.) The 1k brought her to the end of chapter 2.
Day2: She ended with just over 2k and at the end of chapter 3. She was worried that Day 3 would be hard to write and decided she needed to address her notes to add more details to know exactly where to take the action and characters next.
Day 3: As of Monday night (when Castle started) she had 0/1k written. UH OH!
She wrote another query (For FIXING SHELBY), one that may be "it", or at least closer (less of a synopsis, more of a teaser).
She's still struggling at her day job.
OH AND IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO JOIN IN WITH YOUR OWN 50K IN 50 DAYS!!!! If you decide to take the challenge, let Christy know. She'd love to have others to check in with, report to, and celebrate with!
Erica finshed edits and revisions on her full manuscript (!) and started a brand new project!
She echoes Christy's report that school has yet to improve.
BOTH OF US HOPE YOUR WRITING IS GOING SPLENDIDLY THIS WEEK!
Any good news to report?
