Write-A-Thon: Week 1, Epic Fail

I signed up the Clarion West Write-A-Thon probably a month ago. See the handy link at the side? Yep, you can click that to donate if you like.

My goals are to edit one chapter a week.

Little did I realize, the write-a-thon started the week of June 24th. Oooooops.

So this week, edit two chapters if I can. Also need to edit my mythical story with some feedback I received from other writers at eFiction. It was a good reminder of how critical it is to get that outside look at a story you’ve been so intimately involved with. I knew the story too well to see some of those problems with it.

Other than that, still progressing well on the novel work. I should finish it this week. Still ahead of my goal overall. I think I’m going to work on some shorter fiction in the meantime while I work on the novel edits. I’ll post regular updates each week to keep you aware of the Write-A-Thon progress.
