Hello lovely followers! I’ve been thinking about starting a new weekly meme: WIPWednesday. I already do WIPMarathon, a monthly writing progress meme. But lately I’ve been thinking it would help me to do a weekly writing progress post as well––partly to motivate myself, and partly to keep you all more updated on what I’m working on. And of course, anyone is free to join. I’d love to hear about everyone else’s WIPs!
So, here goes: my first WIPWednesday!
WIP: I Chose the Monster
Writing or Revising?: A little of both. Mostly I’m trying to finish the last couple chapters of my first draft. But I’m also starting to take notes on things I want to revise. Hopefully I will be deeper into revisions by next week!
Current Word Count: 151, 147
How It’s Going:
It’s going pretty well! I’ve been putting off writing until late in the evening, and I should probably stop that. At least I’ve been writing almost every day for the past week or so.
Right now I’m working on the very end of this draft. I thought I was on the last chapter, but it turns out I may have to split it into a couple more chapters (ugh). I really think I can finish this draft within a few days if I stay focused, though!
Goal for Next Week:
I hope to write every day this week, at least until I finish this draft. And then I want to start revisions!
An Excerpt From This Week:
I’ve heard about the light at the end of the tunnel, but it doesn’t look how I imagined it. It looks almost florescent, as it dances in front of one of my eyes, and then the other. Too bright. Too false.
And then I start to realize I’m not dead, after all. I’m …
“… Alive,” a voice says. Not a voice I recognize.
My teeth are chattering. “Juliet?”
I can hear voices around me, murmuring something, but I can’t make out any of the words. It sounds almost like I’m submerged in water, and the sound keeps fading in and out … in and out …
I’m floating. … No, wait. Something––someone––is lifting me off the ground. Through my hazy vision, I catch sight of a woman’s face. And a man. Both of them in some kind of dark blue, baggy uniforms.
I want to scream at them, kick and fight, demand where they’re taking me. But I can’t seem to even make my voice work. My vision is going black again, just as I see a nearby vehicle––some kind of large van––and realize they’re about to put me into it.
That’s all, folks! If anyone else wants to participate in WIPWednesday, just let me know! Or you can just tell me about your WIP in the comments. 🙂 What are you working on? What are your goals for the week?
