Work In Progress Wednesday

Here's my progress on Across Two Universes since last week:

Currently On: Chapter Seven, Page 69

Total Pages: 290

Total Words: 94,000

I feel like I made some good progress since last week, but I know I still need to go back and tweak some things before I'm satisfied.

Since last week, I decided to join a Writing Throwdown suggested by Elana. My goals are modest compared to some of the other participants: I just want to edit/revise through Chapter Eight by the end of the 30 days. Of course, my writing time is pretty slim to begin with, but I'd love to exceed my goal if possible. It depends on how many new scenes I feel compelled to write. Anyway, if all of us meet our goals, Bobby Flay will show up and cook us dinner. No, wait, I'm just saying that to be funny. But I bet I could beat Bobby in a science fiction throwdown. When is he going to walk through the door?

Also, I've joined the Dark Side. That's right; I'm now on Twitter. There's so much writing discussion going on there I feel the need to keep up, though I was sick of the "Blankfail" the first time I heard that being used. My username there is ulbrichalmazan. I'm still trying to get the hang of tweeting and hashtags and following, so any advice would be useful. Anyway, where are the cookies? The Dark Side promised cookies. I hope they're chocolate chip.

I better finish this post before I have a late-night snack.

I'm happy to hear the progress is going steadily and well. I am up for reading more chapters (I need to email you back).

I'm on twitter, too, and I don't know if I like it. Why do things need hashtags? Aren't twitter updates just like facebook updates? And I only check updates maybe once every other day, when I go on twitter's site, so I miss a lot.
But, I probably won't delete my account either.

You're doing awesome! Kudos to the editing. It's no small feat when one is editing. :)
