I’ve just been around for the last couple hours, chilling and taking a break from my writing. How’s it going?

Okay. I wrote 500 words and going to finish edits for tomorrow’s chapter. TWR is averaging 500 reads per month since I posted it.

Yourself?

I’m the exact same way. Not to say everything in my stories is dark and heavy, but I definitely lean towards having those themes in there

Oh that’s awesome, mine are averaging…well I don’t know actually but I think the numbers are still going up lol :slight_smile:

I’m currently working on a rewrite and I got past my word goal of 53K today so I’m hoping to get to 56K tomorrow and then brace for the week lol

Exactly, I just feel like it drives a point home or at least the emotions stick with someone and thats what attaches them to a story :slight_smile: if that makes sense

I’m going to apply for Next with TWR once it’s been completed. I decided to wait since completed stories have a better chance of being accepted.

That’s great about your word goal!

Oooh, I love a male POV in a romance. It feels fresh, somehow. Reminds me of About A Boy (saw the movie but didn’t read the book). And classical music is wonderful. I love Puccini. And I’ve seen a few operas now.

I grew up and lived in Maine my whole life so I feel your pain regarding the weather. I highly recommend SoCal, lol. But I will miss the change over to spring…the buds on the trees, the spring peepers…

Hi Shelley! I totally agree about the extra e. Anything else doesn’t look balanced. Plus, you know, Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe. I’ve seen photos of New Zealand, and it looks so beautiful.

Sounds like you are busy, busy with projects! How do you keep all the balls in the air, so to speak? It’s so much work getting a book ready for publishing. I worked as a publishing assistant at an academic press. I handled production–scheduling, working with the vendors for interior and cover design, with the printer, proofreaders, copy editors. It was interesting. But there is so much more to putting out a good book than people know!

Hi Michele! Ooooh, Vegas. That is one place I will be visiting now that I’m out west. I love romantic suspense as well as romantic comedy.

#2442

200K is so much! Whoa. But then again, I do love a big, juicy, thick novel if there are lots of characters and a big world to explore within the pages.

That sounds like a good book you are writing! Hope your writing goes smoothly today.
