|First Wednesday of every month.|
Most of my WIPs are light and funny, but one of them is dark and edgy. In fact, not too long ago I skipped out on bringing a racy chapter to my crit group. After receiving fantastic feedback on the chapters that I did bring to my group, I feel better about this manuscript. Yes, it’s unlike my other current projects, but different is good and I’m stretching my writing muscles. If you're curious about it, it's the last one listed for my ROW80 goals, VD. And no, it doesn't stand for "veneral disease," as some of you mentioned in comments awhile ago. ;)
This round of A Round of Words in 80 Days runs from January 7th to March 28th. Here are my goals for this round, all involving YA manuscripts. Abbreviations are used for the titles and updates are in red.
A) Revise and edit EK, a manuscript my beta readers gave me feedback on right before the round. Since last Wednesday I revised 4 more chapters, with 17 out of 26 chapters revised.
B) Revise M, a draft I wrote during the summer. Since last Wednesday I revised 5 more chapters, with 18 out of 24 chapters revised.
C) Revise and edit VD. I went through one phase of revisions during the last round. For this round I'd like to polish the manuscript before sending it to beta readers. Since last Wednesday I revised 13 more chapters, with 26 out of 26 chapters revised. I will soon start on the second round of revisions. Also, I took a chapter to my critique group and will use their feedback to tweak it.
I hope everyone is doing well with their goals.
