Writing Update #21

So, since my last update, I’ve not written a whole lot. I’ve been busy with a lot of things, and the “pantsing project” [T] came to a standstill, because what-do-you-know, I do actually need an outline. I’m just not a pantser, I guess.

Well, first things first: [TT] has an official working title now! So from here on out I’ll be referring to it as [SOPAB].

So, I’ve been editing my novel [TEE] for the last few weeks – it’s going slow, but it’s going – and I’m well over the 100k mark. Once I’m finished with that, I’ll be looking for agents to submit to. But first things first: it needs to be polished until it shines. Continue reading
