BI3M – Day One

Okay so I’m going to be working on True Darkness. Remember all that work I did on it before, well I trashed it. It’s on the hard drive but it’s not going to be usable for this story. I’m taking the story/series in a new direction. I may be able to use the material for a different story.

So starting over with the word count. Goal for BI3M is 2K a day for June and July. I haven’t come up with an edit plan for August yet. I’m leaning toward either doing a specific amount of pages a day and doing passes. Or doing passes on specific things each week.

BI3M Challenge

Starting May 31st – eharlequin is going to be doing a “Book in 3 Months” challenge.

The challenge is this: Write for the first 2 months, edit the last month. So at the end of 3 months you have a submittable manuscript.

So to complete a 75K manuscript in 2 months, I’d need to write at the minimum 1250 words a day (writing every day – which I generally do anyway)

And for a 100K manuscript in 2 months, I’d need to write a minimum of 1675 words a day.

I’ll be doing the first one (75K) and will (attempt) to post every day on the blog as well as on twitter on my progress.

I’m back… Sorta

Sorry for the mini hiatus. I got caught up in life and school (did I mention I was going to culinary school?) and unfortunately as I adjusted to my new life and new schedule, blogging and my writing (another unfortunate) suffered.

I promise to try to post more, at least updates on how the writing is going. And there may be more – getting to know me type posts or random thoughts and questions too. But I plan on doing more industry info round-ups.

So writing – I finished LL and started working on what could be the next in that series and got a great idea/suggestion. The idea basically means a total rewrite of LL. But I’m going to hold off on that for a bit, maybe during summer break from school. So in the meanwhile I’ve been writing/working on my women’s fiction story. And doing outlines for the other stories in the YA series.
