Menu for Romance Progress Page

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I’m cracking the whisk!

During the month of March, I was supposed to be writing about 31,000 words on Menu for Romance during MTCW’s March Madness Marathon. Unfortunately, I didn’t think about the fact that edits on Stand-In Groom were due at the end of the month nor know that I’d get feedback on Ransome’s Honor and want to take time out to make revisions on that as well.

So, I might be limiting the number of new posts here until I get caught up with where I need to be on the word count for Menu for Romance, if I’m going to have the first draft of it finished by the end of April. That gives me five weeks to write about 60,000 words—which means I need to average 12,000 words per week, or about 1,715 words per day. I only wrote 750 yesterday. 😦

At the top of the screen, you’ll see a page entitled MFR Progress. I should be updating that page daily with what I’ve accomplished (either that day or the day before). If I go for more than a couple of days without updating that page, please contact me to find out why I haven’t written anything!

If I can get at least 1,500 words written today, I’ll have another Hooking the Reader post for you tomorrow!

Don’t forget, if you would like to be an influencer for Stand-In Groom and receive a copy of it from Barbour about a month before it hits shelves (so sometime in December) in exchange for posting a promotional review on your blog/Amazon/B&N/CBD, etc., please e-mail me with your name and mailing address and I’ll add you to the list.

    Deadlines! Real or self imposed. I was SUPPOSED to get 3 chapters finished over Easter weekend…um yeah that didn’t happen. I did manage to get one chapter (almost) done between Monday and Tuesday. I hope to finish it Thursday and get the next one written too…then take the weekend to finish up the last chapter. Then I have to take a break and change gears and write that critical paper before I do any more creative writing. 😀

    1715 is a lot of wordpower! You can do it 🙂
