For all the missteps they made during 3A (do NOT get me started on the writing for last season), it seems like they’re going almost overboard making up for it in 3B. I am alternately grateful and terrified.
1.Write 10,000 words on 2013 NaNo novel.
Stretch goal: FINISH IT.
I broke 3k for the month and 75,000 words on this story. Yes, you read that right. SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND WORDS. I have honestly no idea how this got to be as long as it did.
I also finally killed someone! They didn’t have a name, but I killed them! I’M SO HAPPY.
2.Edit 5 chapters of MGG.
Stretch goal: Edit 10 chapters.
I finished editing through chapter 7 this weekend! It’s been going pretty smoothly, which is nice, and I’ve managed to cut out a couple of scenes that were longer than necessary or more circular than they should’ve been. Another solid editing bout should get me through chapter 12, which will also get me halfway through the book.
3. Get halfway through the novel I’m critting.
Stretch goal: Finish the novel I’m critting.
Sadly, I didn’t make much more headway on this one.
4. Write a query for MGG.
Well, I have something! Problem: It’s in first person, which is usually a bad idea for queries. So, I’ll be trying to edit it into something more acceptable. (But editing is better from creating entirely from scratch, yes?)
So how are you guys doing?
