Row80 Check-In – Oct. 16, 2011

I wish I could say I did more than I did but alas…I can’t.

I wrote 3,500 words on my 2nd novel in the Fallhollow saga, which I shouldn’t be focusing on at all because my first novel hasn’t been completely re-written, but the scene popped in my head and I had to write it down.

I re-wrote another chapter of my WIP and added a new chapter per Publisher’s suggestion.    It’s all about balancing my characters’ POV’s.

I reviewed a beta reader’s synopsis, but due to birthday parties and family gatherings, I haven’t finished it so I could send it over to her.

I have completely set aside my 50 word synopsis and short story/300-word piece I was going to enter into a contest.  I really, really want to finish this re-write on my first novel and get it over to the publisher.  My goal is to get a contract by Christmas.  Keeping fingers crossed.

It’s been a very stressful few days.  Hopefully I will get back in the swing of things come Monday.  Hmm. Come Monday. Jimmy Buffet song.  Sounds relaxing.  I think I’ll put it in my cd player and listen to it, then maybe throw in some Michael Buble’ or maybe some Boney James.

  1. Chin up, Jen! Any movement is forward movement. It’s great that you have a goal to get a contract by Christmas. You need to get cracking on finishing that baby to make it real. Feel the whip snapping **snap**
    Is that the souns a whip makes? Oh, well… You get the point 🙂


  2. Hey, when a scene springs to mind you have to write it down, I wouldn’t fault yourself for that. It looks like you had a busy week and are making progress. Fingers crossed for you as well on getting contract. Exciting times! Have a great week 🙂


    1. Thanks, Gene, for your kind words. The scene I wrote turned out really well so I’m not going to beat myself up over it. I just wish I could finish the first novel before I spend all that time on the second one. Ah, I hear the sound of a cracking whip. Get ‘er done! 🙂

      Oh, and thanks a million for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love meeting new authors. Good luck with your writing. I’ll pop on over to your blog and take a look around.
