Weekly Progress Report - Just About Done!

Well, I've been doing a lot more writing this past week and before I go to bed tonight the rough draft of Two Princesses, One Prince, and a Dragon will be completed! It's currently at 76,600 and all I have to write yet is a short epilogue. At the most, it'll be a little less than 80K. It's so nice to know that Nano this past year wasn't a fluke and that I can write a complete rough draft around 80K in one month.

I've always continued to edit and went through the entries from the contest. All I have to do yet is fill out the scorecards.

Hubby and I have been watching a lot of movies lately. Midnight in Paris, Percy Jackson, Double Jeopardy, Runaway Jury, Black Swan. Next up is The Help.

How goes your writing? Your reading? Seen any good movies lately? What have you been up to?

Check out some other great progress reports this week:

welcome to my world of poetry said...

This past week have been promoting my new book and answering blogs.
I have a vacation coming up soon, but even away I find something to write a poem about.

Great progress. What did you think of Black Swan? It was a bit more freaky than I'd expected. I do like freaky, though. lol

Well done on finishing the novel! Doesn't it feel good? Then you get to go back and go through it all again.

As for any kind of reading, writing and film watching... eh? Nope, nothing! This week I was mostly vacuuming!

I watched Wall-E with my little guy. It was a great movie for adults too.

Natalie Aguirre said...

How awesome. And that's great you're spending time with your husband watching movies. We need to do some of that. I'm glad he wants to watch The Help with me.

Dawn Malone said...

Congratulations on completing your rough draft!
I haven't watched anything lately, but I am looking forward to seeing The Woman in Black when it comes out this week.

Let's see, finished a line edit on the MS, now am tinkering around while waiting for a few full MS crits to come back so i can move forward.
Sigh. Waiting is the hardest part

I knew you would finish! And with what, two weeks to spare?

Cortney Pearson said...

Nice work!! I left you an award on my blog. :) Not because you finished your novel, ha ha, but because I think your blog is gorgeous. :D

80K in one month?? You're a machine! Good job and congratulations!

I am slowly working toward the end of my book. I just want to get it done by the end of February and I'm about halfway in. Slow and steady, right?

Cherie Reich said...

You've done awesome this month!!

The Help is really good.

As for myself, I'm finishing up the last edits of my novelette and getting ready to publish it and start the blog tour.

Susan Fields said...

I finally saw The Help at my in-laws house at Christmastime. I absolutely loved it, it really is as good as everyone says. Now I have to read the book!

Kelly Polark said...

I just read on Twitter that you are done! WOW!
Congrats! That must feel good!

And I read on Facebook that you're DONE! Awesome job, Nicole!
