Surprise progress

I've felt for the last six to nine months that I've struggled with my writing.  That the mucked up routine, and general 'ups and down' that life threw at me, slowed me down.

Last night, I caught up with a friend whom I hadn't seen for ages.  I mentioned that I had an MS out with a handful of Lit Agencies, and she asked if it was a couple of chapters, or a whole book.  I explained that the book had been through 8 revision/edits, and was as polished as I could get it.

I then remembered that so far this year I've written a pantomime (including two revisions), a radio play, and I'm a quarter of the way through the first draft of my new book.

It turns out that I'm doing a lot better than I originally thought.

How are you guys doing with your projects?


  1. Yeah you're doing better. You're kicking some serious writing trash. I need to learn a lessen from you. (Top of the morning' to you ole' chap.) That's my best British. Did I nail it?

    1. A very good attempt Erin. If I ever meet someone who speaks like that I'll be sure to let you know ;o)

    1. hmm... strange new use of the words "Writing beast" that I've previously not encountered ;o)

  3. I just awarded you with the Liebster Blog award! Check out my blog for the details. :)

    As far as my writing is going... I feel stuck :/ I need to make myself start writing again so I can get out of my rut, but overall I've made some pretty good progress and I've learned a lot.

  4. Isn't it great when you can review and feel like, "Oh yeah! I AM doing ok!" Glad to know you through NaNoReviMo. AND I get to be the 50th follower. I feel special. :)
