Writer's Wednesday: Writing Check-In

Happy Wednesday, Oasis-Seekers!

I don't know about you guys, but the end of the school year is kicking my butt. I have three kids and teach preschool, so ... YIKES. End of year projects, parties, awards, gifts, and on and on.

There's not enough coffee to get me through the next two weeks. *needs coffee I.V.*

Consequently, my writing has been taking a bit of a backseat lately, but I really want to make some headway on revisions before the upcoming local SCBWI conference.

So, I thought it might be fun to do a bit of a check-in and goal-setting here. I'm going to give myself a lot of leeway, given my ridiculously long and overwhelming To-Do list, but feel free to be as loose or as strict with your goals as you want. Post them in the comments, and I will check back in with you and see how you did.

For me, by the end of the month (May), I want to finish revising TS and send it out, and do at least four more chapters of revision on M. (Eep! That sounds like a lot!)

What are your goals? Or, if you don't feel like setting any, how is your writing coming along? What are you working on? Where are you in the process?


  1. I'm currently awaiting edits on a full novel, and a short story, have an R/R on a short story from my adult romance publisher, and my agent wants pages in in my new YA sci-fi >_< I would like to get a good start on the new project, but with a trip to BEA looming, I'm not sure what I can accomplish.

  2. I've been thinking of diving back to the writing game. For me, that means I need to thoroughly flesh out my new characters.

  3. Right now, just writing, Put a goal of 500 words daily (which I either skip or exceed in). But it's good!

  4. I'm about approaching the 325K mark on my current WIP, and would like to have reached 400K by the end of the summer. My projected final guesstimate is 450-500K, and hopefully it'll be finished by the end of the year. There are also some edits and revisions I need to do on some of my other books.


Breaths that matter...
