Now, I know I didn't post on Wednesday-- oops!-- so I figured I would just do it today. Unfortunately, I can't even remember the last time I had a work-in-progress post, so I suppose I'll just give a little update.
While I was in Virginia I managed to get about 2000 words out! I know it may not seem like a lot, but I'm very happy with it. I edited the first 30 pages of my story, and wrote a whole new scene. I'm very happy with all 38 pages I have right now and I hope to get at least another 10 pages out tonight.
I'm also giving a lot of thought to the possibility of having some people read the first 50 or so pages of my current story like we discussed in November. I think I will be offering it sometime this week, so keep your eyes open for a chance to read my story!
And lastly, here is a list of everything I've read this week (sympathy is most welcome):
