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
