Hey guys! I must admit, WIPWednesday almost totally slipped my mind today. I’m having kind of an off day––I have this weird cold/allergies (not sure which) thing going on. Basically I have a terrible cough and my throat has been killing me, and I barely got any sleep last night, so I feel a little scatterbrained. But anyway, enough with the excuses and on to the WIP stuff!
WIPWednesday is a weekly meme started by yours truly, which I use to update my progress on my WIP(s). Anyone is free to join, of course!
WIP: I Chose the Monster
Writing or Revising: Revising
Progress Since Last Week: … *crickets chirp* Did not get much done on ICTM. I did a little brainstorming for it, but that’s about it. I did, however, finish re-reading The Resurrectionists, and I started to outline my book proposal for my BPL writer-in-residence application!
How It’s Going:
ICTM – *shrugs* Things are still kind of up in the air. I’m still doing some light edits and getting a bit of feedback from CPs, but at this point I’m still not sure what changes I want to make, especially the big ones.
The Resurrectionists – As I mentioned last week, I’m considering working on this one a bit for Camp NaNo, but I still haven’t really decided. I finished re-reading what I’ve written so far, and while it’s definitely all over the place right now, I think it has some interesting stuff going on and I look forward to returning to it.
Goals For Next Week:
- Edit at least one chapter of ICTM.
- At least start my book proposal for the BPL application. I also have to submit a short book synopsis, so I should probably work on my synopsis of The Waters and the Wild as well.
#WIPpetWednesday is a meme started by Emily at A Keyboard and an Open Mind. All you have to do to participate is share a snippet of your WIP––and the snippet has to be related to today’s date somehow.
So, since today is 3/16, here is 3 paragraphs from Chapter 16 of I Chose the Monster.
Just as I start to follow her, she reaches the edge of the platform––and jumps. I watch as she disappears over the edge, and a second later I hear the thump of her feet––hopefully––hitting the ground. “This way!” she calls out.
The sound of her voice echoes through the empty station, and I go tense as it disrupts the silence. I look quickly over my shoulder, even though I know there are no Morts behind me.
I approach the edge of the platform and see the tracks a few feet below me. Juliet is already running along them, towards the pitch black mouth of the tunnel. I hang back, shuddering. No way in hell am I going in there. … On the other hand, I don’t think I can let Juliet go in there by herself, either. I’ve already been responsible for one death, and I don’t think I could bear to have another on my conscience.
Thanks for joining me for another WIPWednesday! Feel free to link to your own WIPpet if you posted one. 🙂
