Plugging Along - Progress Report

Well I am 4,443 words closer to my goal of 10,000 words for this month, which means I'm almost half way there! I've had some slight delays the past few days as I have gone back over my first chapter repeatedly editing, polishing and perfecting. I know it usually is recommended to just keep writing, which I also am trying to do. I find that I do better if I keep going over things for now, as it helps me to obtain clearer thoughts of how my characters are portrayed. Taking a few days away from writing allows me to look at things a little differently as I read over things again.

I have moved on to my second chapter and almost have it completed. It was a good writing day with being able to write six pages. I'll keep this short today since I have been sitting at the computer most of the day, and my legs could use some good stretching!

  1. Hi Jodi, I too am a writer and member of ACFW. I am planning to attend the conference too. We have so much in common. I homeschool, my oldest graduated in 06 and my youngest is freshman this year. I have been married for 24 years and I too have always wanted to write. I found you on the course loop for conf. info. I would love to correspond with you more!! I am from Fayetteville Georgia. Lord willing I am attending the conference for the first time this year...I sure hope you will be there.
    Hugs, Pamela Cowart
