Week in Review

I’m a little late getting this up due to MLK Day.  You might think that would give me more time, but I usually find a way to expand my time wasting to fill the available time alloted.  It was a fairly productive week writingwise.  I wrote 6191 words this week for a total of 93106, and am edging up on the climax.  Seems like I say that every week.  I think I’ll get through it this week.  In fact if I push I think I can finish the first draft this week, two weeks at the outside.

I posted a little vignette about how I Suck @writing which seemed to be well received, thanks to all who commented!

I also updated my Query Letter and got some feedback.  I think it’s pretty close.  Close enough to shelve until I polish the manuscript.

Some other tidbits from the week:

Charlie Stross blogged this, he is brilliant as usual:

Ran across this short story by @MaryRobinette Kowal http://bit.ly/flXBY0 quite awesome!

I heard this on NPR this week and liked it:

“We must see the error in our own truth and the truth in our opponent’s error.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

The next thing to tackle after the WIP is finished it to do a synopsis.  I found this website which does a fine job of walking you though how to do a thorough job http://www.writing-world.com/publish/synopsis.shtml
