Weekly Progress Report - Writing and Editing and No Reading

Since last week, I wrote another 26,400 words of Two Princesses, One Prince, and a Dragon to be slightly over 50K for the month so far. The story isn't quite done yet but maybe by next week. Definitely by the end of the month which makes me very happy. Even if baby #3 comes early, at least the story will be done.

I've also been editing like crazy this month and I just got two more stories to edit. I'm hoping to get as much editing done before baby #3 comes. Then I'll take a little break.

And what will I be doing during that break? Reading! I've been too busy writing and editing to read right now. I'm really looking forward to getting some reading done once the baby comes since I promised hubby I won't write or edit at all for at least two weeks after the baby is born.

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:

Wow, you've been busy! I don't even want to say what I have (or haven't) done. :)

Tonja said...

After my first child was born, I think it took about ten years before I had time (or energy) to read anything. :/ Good for you!

SA Larsenッ said...

You are my champion. Seriously. How you get so much accomplishes... I think you're relaxed. Yes. That's what it has to be. I need to relax and just write, too.

Send me some of your awesome vibes, today. I MUST write a short story for an anthology submission. I've been trying for three weeks and nothing feels right. What do you do when you get this way?

Clarissa Draper said...

Wow, I can't believe you have written so many words. Great job. THe most I've written were 7000 words in a week this month. Props to you. Hope you can enjoy your reading when the baby comes along.

Susan Fields said...

Good luck with finishing everything up before Baby #3, and enjoy your reading time afterwards! There are so many amazing books to choose from - have fun!

Tyrean Martinson said...

WOW! Congratulations on both writing, and baby! Get some reading and some sleep those first couple of weeks.

Aubrie said...

wow, that's a great word count! Good luck preparing for your baby!

Beth said...

Wow! That is amazing! And I was proud of the 8500 I wrote last week, at least 2k of which I'm rewriting today. LOL.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Knew you'd finish in time! I've been working on my third book, writing scenes and adding to the outline.

Tara Tyler said...

Brinda said...

I am SO in awe of you.

Jess said...

Amazing progress! And on more than one project! I'm very impressed :)

Laura said...

goodness, you've been busy! I've been short-story editing ready for my Valentines day anthology release on kindle. And reading Just Henry by Michelle Magorian... addictive!

Karen Lange said...

Sounds like you are making good progress! I need to follow your example. :)

M Pax said...

Yea on your progress. That's great to hear.

I'm trying to get through a scene giving me troubles at the moment. I'm hoping inspiration hits soon. I have deadlines.

Cherie Reich said...

You've done so well in your progress on your novel! And you'll enjoy getting back to reading. There's nothing like it.

tfwalsh said...

Great progress...I'm also deep in editing.. though it's taking me slower than I anticipated... I'll get there eventually:)

Angela Brown said...

Wonderful progress. Reading is a great thing to do when baby #3 gets hear since that is something you can do with one hand :-) (baby will be cradled in the crook of the other arm)

I wish you well as you continue to fire at all pistons.

I am rewriting some words I lost. But thankfully, since I'm not under a dire deadline, it's not too painful a process.

Lisa L. Regan said...

Wow! That's a lot of words! I wish I had time to be that prolific. I am in the revision stage right now though and have promised to read many things for many people. A little behind. Good luck with the new baby! Hope everything goes smoothly!
