Today is Wednesday, which means that here at the lovers, the dreamers, and me - it is WIP Wednesday!
If anyone else out there in the blogosphere wants to join in on the fun, simply post your own WIP Wednesday entry on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below. Or if you don't have a blog, feel free to report your progress directly into the comments box.
For more detailed information concerning what all this nonsense is about please consult the original Work in Progress Wednesday posting.
Now if you read last weeks WIP Wednesday you may remember we left off with a cliffhanger, wondering whether or not I would reach my word count goal and whether that word goal would bring me to "the end."
The answer is yes I reached my word goal, and no I did not reach the end. Here's the current state of my progress bar:
85498 / 85000 words. 101% done!
Yes, I am more than 100% done! And I also have no idea how far over 100% I will be when I am finally finished.
Still needing to be written is the big showdown and the dénouement. Those two together are probably good for another 5000 words or so. I guess I could just change my final word count number to 90K instead of 85K, but I really like looking at that completely full progress bar, so I think I'll leave it for now.
So, that's about it for this week. Once again I really want to be able to report next week that I am at "the end", but things on the real life side of my balance sheet have been adding up and cutting into my writing time lately. Regardless, "the end" is near and already I am starting to think about getting down to the business of first rewrites and then hunting down some willing beta readers to help me make my little manuscript shine. And since I'm on the topic of hunting, how about an LOLcats to wrap things up?
What about you? Did you accomplish what you wanted to this past week?
