Only three hours until midnight, here. My husband, the story-prince-consort is kindly washing the last of the dinner dishes so I can finish the writing projects I took on this month.
Project 1: Picture book, working title Mugly Ugly, the Cemetery Dog. Status: Complete!
(Yay!!! I hadn't even envisioned this book until I needed a break from the other two things I was working on. I like the draft. A lot.)
Project 2: Chapter book, working title Nix the Naughty. Status: Complete! This is the one I finished tonight, with my eyes propped open so the last few pages probably don't make much sense, but I don't care. I can always fix it, right?
So, um, two out of three ain't bad, right Meatloaf?
Project 3: YA Novel, working title Wren Faire (Yeah, the girl's name is Wren and she works at a Renaissance Faire where she meets and falls for a cursed boy from the sixteenth century. Cheesy title, I know, but I think it kind of works.) Status: Er, um, well.....See, I just wanted to finish this. I was already about 30 k into the story (28k actually) and I thought I could finish it...but, well, I couldn't. I got about 20k more, but I still need about 20k more on top of that. I really wanted this done before December so it could simmer for a while before I'd touch it again. But alas, 'twas not meant to be. The most I could get on this story was 1000 words a day, without rushing it. I hate it when my writing sounds rushed.
So, I am going to try and continue with my 1000 wd goal and hope that I finish it soon. I would love a break from longer pieces then, and Chicken Wizard has finally consented to let me write his story. Mighty big of him, considering he's a chicken and all.
