Progress Report 100523

Sunday, May 23

Hello, sorry for being silent on my goals progress. I am getting closer to finishing up my first draft. This week, I completed building the individual outlines for scenes 58 through 115. My fingers will be pounding away at filling out these scenes, and I hope to have it finished by the end of next month if not sooner. Then I will go into full-blown edit mode and see about tightening it up.

Then I will be ready to let a few friends look at it. But, I have to make sure I find most of my mistakes before I get to that point. I have made a short list of things I need to make sure I fix. There are others I know that need to be fixed but have not gotten around to writing them down. Then there is the list of questions I started to write down at the beginning of the book. I have to make sure I answer them before I finish the book.

As for my other goals for this month, they may have to roll over into next month as well. I have not done much toward them at the present time.

My project that coincides with the book The Weekend Novelist (TWN) is coming along nicely. We are at weekend 5. The chapter for weekend 5 & 6 is something I can use. In a way, I have been doing some of that, but somehow, I made mine a bit more complicated than it needed to be.

I have written one article in rough draft and will finish it up sometime this week. That leaves three others I need to be working on. This means I will force myself to spend at least an hour a day on the first draft of them. I might even use the TWN for this week to work the basics out. I will let you know how it comes out.
