Today after 4 hours of writing, I wrote some words on my work in progress that have been very elusive…The End. It was an amazing feeling. This WIP has been difficult for me, compounded by numerous factors. I wrote the first chapter back in 2011, then worked on it off and on up until the last year when I finally worked on it exclusively. It’s a bit thin at 52,000 words (I was shooting for 80K), but it’s been a far bigger undertaking than anything else I’ve done in terms of both plot and research.
Now comes the revisions (rubs hands together). Normally I’m not a big fan of the process. I like to tweak and tinker as I go, so that when I’m done I’m very close to the final product. But Reservoir (yes, that’s its name) is a whole different ballgame. I can’t wait to dive into revisions. I have great faith in this story and I know that the edits will only bring it closer to the vision I have for it.
Thanks to all of you who have hung with me through this project, especially DH and the girls! It’s so good to take a step forward.
How about you? Are you moving forward with your goals?
