Project update

Just thought that I'd let you all know how the new project is coming along. The major project that is not the host of little things that I have going on.
Well, Wednesday will see the end of the fourth week which given my personal target means that I should have 6000 words committed to the page. I am a little behind following the false start that I had but as of ten minutes ago the word count was 4695. I don't think that I'll be far off the 6k mark and would certainly expect to be back on track by the end of week 5.
The project (CT) itself is coming along quite nicely thank you. The first three chapters (yes they have been short) has been setting the scene. Now we get down to the grittier stuff. I am learning a lot through the research that I'm doing which is interesting even though its not neccassarily information that I would have chosen to know. Needs must when the devil drives eh!
No, so far so good and I just wanted to share that with you.
Hope you all have a happy Easter.

Certainly sounds like good progress so far.

So far so good Helen.

I love how research can take you in directions you weren't expecting to go. Even if you don't use it all I think it helps give your writing extra flavour :o)

Talking of flavour, I've definitely overdone the Easter eggs ...

I had to work today but was home by 4pm and decided to clean the cupboard under the stairs. Thought that I would need a choccie or two to fortify me and I too overdid it a bit. Yummy though.
You're right about the research because even if I don;t write it down it gives me a wider understanding of my MC.

Glad it is all going well, you sound very busy. I need to rewrite and sub my first three chapters. I also need to stop saying i need to do it!!!

Happy Easter (or in my case Eater!!)

I'm really trying to make sure that I do something every day. Good luck with the subbing.

Sounds like brilliant progress. Well done.


PS there's a Beautiful Blogger award for you over at mine.

Colette McCormick said...

Thanks for the award Suzanne. I'll nip over there in a mo. It was progressing well but the agent that I sent BTL to asked me to make some changes so I'll be giving that priority.
