Novel Status

Currently on page 202 of editing the tenth and hopefully final draft. Edits all by hand, not incorporated yet.
Number of unwritten scenes: Still uncounted. Just wrote another, so that's three accounted for so far.
Number of unwritten chapter tags: Still reckoned at 40.

Current word count: 120,239 Avoiding the temptation to start on the edits just to see this number change. Must finish draft first.
On target for 3/21 deadline? Yes


Still very excited about something that will appear this month, (I hope)! Just sent a batch of four pitches off to the Escapist as well.

Sunny Day

I seem to get more done on the bright days.

Currently on page 336 of editing the tenth and hopefully final draft. Edits all by hand, not incorporated yet. Realized that since I printed it at a line and a half spacing, there are 437 pages total, so I'm further along than I thought.

Plus I got a bunch of nonfic pitches out, seven altogether, and already heard back on one, although the article won't be due until October.  I'd like to pick up enough nonfic work this year to pay for things like airfare to cons and other writing expenses. Plus, writing articles pushes me to be organized and to be socialable and on top of things.
