Work in Progress Wednesday

I forgot to check my wordcount after lunch today, but I did note where I am in the story:

Currently On: Across Two Universes, Chapter Seven, Page 75
Total Pages: 290
Total Word Count: 94,000

I think I'm close to finishing Chapter Seven, possibly by the end of the week. I do have to figure out the logistics of Chapter Eight (I'm writing new scenes), but at some point, I think I may actually stop tossing everything I've previously written and just edit text. Wouldn't that be something? It would be nice, because May is going to be busy for me. I'm on three panels at WisCon Memorial Day weekend, then the following weekend is Alex's birthday party. The weekend after that, I'm off on a business trip. (At least I should get to read/write while I travel.)

As long as I'm blogging, I'd like to remind people that there's less than a week left to follow my blog and become eligible to win a $10 gift card from Barnes and Noble. You can see my original post here. And if you refer someone who then follows me, you have a chance to win a second gift card. The drawing is next Tuesday, the 28th. Don't forget!

Luck on your writing. :) Do you know about how long you're shooting for? (word count/pages)

Good job, Sandra! I'm soo sorry it's taken me so long to read your first chapter. I did my first read-through today. I'll try to get it to you tomorrow. :)

Wow, May does sound like a busy month for you! It seems like if you switch from rewriting whole chunks to mostly editing text that things will move much faster for you though.

My son's birthday is also in May!

Way to keep plugging along!
Sometimes I find when I'm super busy, I get more accomplished. I don't know how this works.
But maybe May will be awesome for you!
