I use to do this update every second Wednesday but I have decided to change this to every Sunday and share a weekly wrap up of my writing. And because my writerly update will no longer be on a Wednesday, I will be doing my Writing Tip Wednesday every week instead for fortnightly so I can share more writing tips with you.
So what have I done this week writing wise?
This week I have been concentrating on my YA contemporary novel. I printed it out and have gone through and edited chapters 1-6. I went through each chapter twice and then typed up the corrections on the computer.
I have decided that my YA sci-fi won’t be ready to be submitted to the Ampersand Project which is open for the month of February. I don’t want to rush it, just let it be finished when it is finished. But I think my YA contemporary novel is much more ready so I’m thinking about submitting it instead. I am hoping to get through the rest of it quickly. It’s only 60,000 words so I should be able to get through it within two weeks.
I finished a first draft of a romantic short story for adults and have gotten through half a draft for another one.
Today I wrote the first draft of a sci-fi story that came in just over 2000 words. I was so happy to have it all done today. I knew the entire plot in my head and just couldn’t stop until I had it all out.
My goal this year is to complete and submit more short stories and so far I have been right on track with this goal.
Also, I joined the Romance Writers Of Australia, which I am really excited about. I think it will be a great opportunity and I’m looking forward to learning more about it and entering their contests and talking to other members.
That’s all from me. How has your writing week been?
