What's Up Wednesday

It's another What's Up Wednesday, in which I neatly sum up the past week, in the company of Jaime, Erin and all the other participants :D

What I'm Reading

Finished Emma's book ;) Then I decided to go back to good 'ol Jack Reacher with Gone Tomorrow. So far, it's waaaaaay better than the last one I read.

What I'm Writing

Internet cookies to all who get the reference ;)

Yes, one draft complete. 64k in exactly a month! It's shorter than my usual drafts, but if feels right, you know? I am now doing a quick, messy read through to separate it into chapters and work out where more research is needed.

This is a great start to 2015 :D

What Works For Me

Definitely enjoying these internet-lite weekends. Haven't managed to totally disconnect yet, but not spending hours just poking around various websites is definitely helping me focus on the writing. I have a finished draft to prove it ;)

What Else I'm Up To

Trying to drill scales and key signatures into my brain. Ah, the joy of musical theory.

Have a great week everyone!

  1. Congrats on finishing that draft! :D I've been quiet on the internet over the past week (well, sometimes :P) and it definitely helped my word count. But I'm incapable of disconnecting completely.

    Best of luck with the edits! Looking forward to reading. ;)

    1. Yeah, I can't seem to make a total break, but airplane mode is definitely part of the reason this book is already fully drafted :D

      Hopefully it'll be coming your way early Spring ^_^

  9. Congrats on finishing up your first draft! Yay! What a great feeling that must be. :-) If I was to take all the time that I spend on the interwebz and apply it to writing instead, I might actually make some headway. Might have to take a page from your book! Have a great week, Cole! :D
