WIPMarathon Check-In #4

Last Check-in Wordcount + ChapterCount (+ scene count if you’re revising): Nada.

Current WC + CC (or SC): Same.

WIP Issues this week: I am still tightening a MS that is NOT my WIP for this marathon! Agh!!

What I learnt this week in writing: That even when you honestly believe you can’t get your synopsis below 700 words, YOU CAN. Cut mine from 747 to 485, and I’m pretty proud of this fact. I am finally learning to cut to the chase, I think 🙂

What distracted me this week while writing: Christmas in Scotland 🙂 Had a fun day out in Glasgow today and tomorrow we’re off to Edinburgh. I managed to finish reading one friend’s MS, finish a novel I started last week, and read through 2 craft books. So despite my lack of actual writing, this has been a pretty useful writing week still anyhow.

Last 200 words: As I’ve only been doing the odd word tweak since last week, I don’t think that really counts. Same for the synopsis 😉 NEXT WEEK!!


The days are getting longer now, though, folks! Have fun ringing in the New Year, and see you on the other side!
