– Writin’ Machine!

Still finalizing the details for the new non-fiction book, so today I focused on my two fiction stories.  I got ch12 revised for Story #1… the story is much easier to edit now that the character is more developed and I know the plot better… hoping to have the remaining 18 chapters or so of the book revised and done by end of September so I can float out some copies to a few folks for feedback.

Story # 2 is cranking as well… I got ch5 done today… 2600+ words which is outstanding.  And I’m very happy with the chapter… the hero is with some of the town kids and finding out which are friends, which might be… and which ones obviously are not.  A few minor characters introduced as well as some foreshadowing of the major plot line that will develop in the 2/3 of the book.

The stories are so different… it’s odd to be writing one that Sci Fi and one that’s not… but they’re both fun.

Here’s today’s scorecard and Progress Bars:

Novel #1 – Draft 2 Revisions
Ch12 – 9 pages – 2329 words
Book – 102 pages – 25447 words

Novel #2 – Draft 1
Ch5 – 10 pages – 2653 words
Book – 45 pages – 11445 words
