Writing Journal 10.29.2018: Wrapping up the month with so-so but steady production

Hey, everyone, thanks for being patient if you were actually waiting for me to post on Sunday. Here’s the totals – unspectacular, but consistent and comparable to last week.

+677 words written.

Days writing: 2 out of 7.

Days revising: 5 out of 7 for 270 total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of revisions): 5 of 7 days.

So, there’s that.

Current writing status:

  • Sent back my corrections for the second proof of the soon-to-be-published book. It’s getting closer to becoming a reality.
  • I’ve been reviewing the comments from one of my beta readers for my current WIP, now on version 3.5. Version 4.0 will take those comments and putting them into practice. The general thrust of those comments are 1. Less telling and more showing, and 2. I don’t need to get into all the life details for my secondary characters, no matter how interesting I find them to be. I might manage to slim down the book by a thousand words or two.
  • Had an interesting night of writing in a bar while chauffeuring my wife around to a night out with her friends. It might be worth a mid-week (Friday?) post.

Not too much more to add to that right now. The writing grind continues.
