Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Continue promoting. Some. Still feeling my way.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Contnue serialization on wattpad to try to create more interest. Yes.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Send out three queries. Yes.
MAGE STORM: Rest. Wait for feedback. Easy one.
MAGIC AND POWER: Rest before starting second draft. Another easy one.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Revise Chapters 24 through 27. Yes.
I usually post my word count on facebook, since that is where I see most of my friends nowadays. But, since I'm glad to see the group I started still going (makes me feel I've had at least one good idea), I'll add my stats here:
Currently, I have 208,204 words (900 manuscript pages, before chapter-spacing format is calculated), and am at the battle just before the climactic battle. My goal is to end this monstrosity before the end of the month.
I think Meredith is the busiest Hatracker still active on here.

Wrote new words in my WIP every day in the last week. I have to write at least 1/2 hour every day. Haven't missed a day (and that 1/2 hour usually stretches itself into an hour or two). I'm about 50,000 words into it. According to my outline, I'm a little aver halfway there.
I found a characterization for an important supporting character that I really like. She was just a talking plot point before (and she was a he), but I figured out who she is and made her female, which has open up a rich vein of interaction with my MC. So, happy to get that important piece of the story locked down.
