WIP-It Wednesday

How's it going this week? Are the words flowing faster than you can type? Or do you find yourself staring out of windows a lot? Any particular problems you could use some help on? Here's your chance to share. Tell us in the comments below.

From scintillating dialogue to adverb overload, let us know how it's going. Show us yours, and we'll show you ours. That's what Work-in-Progress Wednesday is all about!

  1. I got the rejection blues, today. So many rejections *sigh* Usually I laugh 'em off, but today . . . *sigh*

  2. I feel your pain. It's like a constant patter sometimes. You're not good enough, you're not good enough. But you are, and this will change. Soon, I hope.

  3. Working hard on my novel this week, the shorts have slid to the backburner. All in all, it's pretty good.

  4. Thanks, Steve. It's good to know other writers feel like this sometimes.

  5. Still clacking away at my WIP. Over 7000 words in, ideas aplenty, but I seem to be slowing down a little as of late.

  6. I'm in the final (God, I hope) week of Triangulation: Last Contact work. Formatting for Kindle, paying authors, shipping books, inventorying back stock. Next time the WIP post pops up I hope to be reporting I'm hard at work on a revision of my epic fantasy novel. I am so ready for that :-)

  7. pretty good day, actually. got a personal rejection in the mail, another story is on a hold request, and my revision is moving forward. :D

    sorry for the downer on the rejection, Deborah. *hugs* some do cut deeper than others. but keep going and you'll forget about it soon enough.

  8. Fingers crossed, Dawn. You deserve a break or three.

  9. Getting nowhere fast myself - summer holidays are always a pretty lean time for me; hard to get an hour or two of peace to write. Ah well. At least it's good to know other folks are writing away!

  10. Rejections a'plenty here as well, but I managed to make some major headway in my novel whilst hiding out unplugged on Sebec Lake. I need to go there more often...

  11. That sounds great, Milo. I have this vision of a log cabin in the woods ...

  12. Not far off the mark, Simon. I'll be sure to post a couple photos on my blog this weekend.

  13. This week: Loads of writing done. Loads. Tonnes. Whole novel, in fact. Yeah!

    Okay, I haven't done a tap this week... Should probably get my skates on :)

  14. @shanemgavin - You had me going there :-) I had a dream about finishing a novel in a week once. Woke up and it wasn't done. Went back to sleep.

    Hope next week is better for you (and me too, come to think).

  15. Pretty much a hopeless writing week because of a very sick husband in the hospital. But he's home and much better now, so I can turn my attention to made-up worlds again.

  16. @Anne - you have your priorities right. I'm glad your husband is feeling better and sorry you both had to go through an ordeal like that. Hope the words come easily when you do get back to writing.
