I have reached my first writing goal for this month! I am now halfway through the 2nd draft of the third book in the Investigative Paranormal Society series! My next goal is to finish this draft by the end of the month. My long-term goal for this book is to release it around Halloween!
Next month I will do the 2nd draft of my political thriller, then the 2nd draft of a Historical Romance–yes, you heard that correctly–and then I will begin my next 1st draft.
So, I ask all of you: what is the status of your Work In Progress?
Hello to all the writers out there and reading this blog!
It is time for a shameless self-promotion party, so please do not be shy about your work.
Let the world know about your book(s)!
Tell us about your book, and leave an image and a link if you can.
In order for as many people to see your work as possible, please Tweet and reblog this post!
Please remember to be proud of your work!
Here is my self-promotion: my latest book can help writers who have issues with finishing first drafts of their books. If that is you, I offer direct, practical advice on how to Get The Draft Done! by Charles F. French.
“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Let us all remember that we have a responsibility to the greater good, and let us take a lesson in action from the behavior of the Greatest Generation. We must sacrifice and endure inconvenience so that others may live.”
I am very excited that I have finished the first draft of book 3 in the Investigative Paranormal Society that began with Maledicus and continued with Gallows Hill.
This draft is a mess, but that is as it should be with the first draft. I will put it aside for a few days, and then attack draft 2, in which I will try to make sure I have the organization of chapters and plot set up correctly. Then, it will be on to draft # 3.
I wanted to ask how your writing is progressing. Are you working on a first draft or editing or both? I have been getting about 1000 words a day on my current first draft; I have about 37,000 now. I hope to be finished with that initial draft at the end of the month or early next month. Then it will be a month of revisions!
Now, this will be a bit of shameless self-promotion, but if you are having difficulty finishing your first draft, then please check out my book–Get The DraftDone! in which I offer strategies for finishing your first draft.
So, I ask all of you: how is your writing progressing?
This is a very difficult time for all of us. Please remember to do the best that you can to endure. Please remember to value yourselves and your writing. Please remember that you are writers, no matter if you are published, self-published, or beginning a work. Please remember that if you write, then you are a writer.
I found this idea for a Shameless Self-Promotion Saturday on Twitter, and I think it is an excellent one. So, today, shout out your book to the world! Give information about the book and where it can be found. Then be sure to reblog and share on other social media so as many people as possible can read out about it.
Remember, writers–we need to be our best promoters and publicists!
