Holy Guacamole that was Productive!


I had an INSANE weekend. All writing. All the time. Except the wine part, but that was just a couple hours Friday night.

I didn't get to start NaNoWriMo until I got home from work, but I managed to break 11.5K this weekend (in 3 days) So WAHOO! That is 7 of the new chapters (of 9), though I still need to pare down a LOT from the original book for two additional chapters... for this book, that needs to happen this month, even though those words won't count, just because of my production schedule.

In ADDITION, I got ALL beta suggestions addressed on book 5 and turned it around for 2nd readers.
And I got Book 6 ALL edited (this had started last week, so it was really maybe the last 3rd, but then also entering of said edits (all but 2 chapters).

So this month, I am probably only going to blog twice a week, and I think I have a guest every week... I will get organized shortly so all this is in my sidebar where it is easier to see what is what.

But in case you MISSED IT, Blogger buddy, February Grace had a book release FRIDAY!!!


Bru is my guest NEXT WEEK, but I wanted to alert you all it was out!!!

Amazon 

See you in a couple days, Gringos! Hopefully those of you writing are all making good progress!!!

Congrats on the terrific word count. That is freaking awesome.

Contrats! I'm loving NaNo too. I was in Madrid this weekend so I hooked up with some of my old writer's group and we had a writeathon at a local cafe. It was so cool to have a room full of people writing novels!
Oh, and you can find me on NaNo under my own name if you want to do the buddy thing. Keeps you motivated if you know people are watching. :-)

Congratulations to February! (What a great name.)

Oh Hart, as usual I feel like a sleepy slug compared to you. Your productivity and discipline are amazing! So of course major bestsellerdom is headed your way...

You are having a very productive writing time, maybe I will catch some of the energy sparks you are sending out. I am a writer too, and have a book give away going on at my blog, of my Christmas book.
