It's that time of the week again, time for the kick in the pants. The idea is that having somewhere to report progress will spur you on to make some. So I'm posing the question to all of us here. Did you write this week? As we have been reminded in the past, writing for the purposes of this thread can mean just about anything you want. You did some editing? Report it here. Outlining, pre-writing or any other kind of prep work? Sure, that counts too. And, of course, writing new work always counts.

Revisions for me. I spent the whole week revising the final volume in my first trilogy. It's the final pass before I send it to my editor, so I'm going through it with a fine tooth comb.

Other than that, notes for the next book I'm writing, which will close that trilogy, and notes for my next project. An idea for another project popped up too.

That's it for me. How about you? Did you write?

Yes, I wrote. Mostly on the rewrite of THE SHAMAN'S CURSE. Another revision to the query for MAGE STORM.

Also working on a crit and two blog posts.

Wrote a few thousand words on my non-fiction book. Made a few revisions on one of my novels.
That's it.

Yes. I'm tooling around with a dieselpunk setting and characters.

Just under 10K of my current WIP during my two week annual vacation. This would be wonderful except the work is now 30K in length and thus ineligible for Q4 WOTF as initially planned. Unintentionally, it seems I'm writing my second novel.

A scattering of ~5K on other projects and (I must be crazy) two collaborations w/ 2 week deadlines I'm likely not going to make because I'm back at work full time.

I managed five hundred words Wednesday and another five hundred Sunday---laying off has, I think, blunted my momentum. But I have a pretty good idea of what'll happen next, so I should get back to it, maybe at a slower pace.

Writer's vacation over. I managed to get out four new chapters that came to 26,432 words!It was really great to have two weeks to just sit down everyday and get into the story line, character's mind sets and know where I was going as I had briefly outlines my scenes. Now back to work, so hopefully I can at least keep plinking away at what I've got started.

Yep, I did.

Since the treehouse is back up and I didn't get a chance to say this before it went down I thought I would now even though there should be a new week's thread.

That weeks mostly on a western fantasy I am hand writing.

The site going down prevented me from saying the week was a washout for me...but I did get something written on Wednesday. I spent some time expending literary effort on grievance statements on Thursday, though...don't ask.

Last week I started a detailed plot outline/narrative. I am handwriting this. This week has been a bit of a bust.

Going over and over the first few paragraphs -- the only part of the manuscript I can really count on being read. Sigh.

Inputting a third round of galley proof corrections for a book due for publication the end of August. Working on organizing subscriber lists for a book to mail out this coming week, that just finished production. Working on invoices for a few subscribers who haven't yet paid or have paid but want invoices for their records. Registering copyrights. Training new interns in formatting, bookkeeping, managing the business book. Proofreading several manuscripts due Sunday night, several hundred pages and hundreds more coming through Tuesday. Please, someone come over and give me a hand.

Back at work, but patient load is down so trying to keep whacking away at chapter 17. On call today, but no page so finally can toss the beeper and get back to some word whacking! I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyone have a good recommendation for a cover designer? I think I'd like to have a professional do it this time, as it takes sooo much of my time to do design work. Just asking, not sure if this is the right spot. KT

Didn't say it on my post but I also worked on a guest blog post on Indie publishing. Total of 1500 words.

It happens to be here
