Weekly Writing Status
Happy New Year!
This is my first Writing status for the year 2011, and I’m happy to say that I’ve been busy here at Casa de Hansen
In the last week I’ve written:
1150 words on my Grandpa novel, which is about 5 chapters from being completed
618 words to finish up my first short story codenamed Memories. I’ve passed this past a couple Alpha readers and so far they are excited about it, though it does need a lot of editing.
5312 words on a new completed short story I’ve codenamed “Death” Halfway through I decided to go a different direction with the story, so I need to do some pretty major editing before I let beta readers see it.
All in all a good week. I was on-call for work so that sucked up a lot of my time. Despite being really busy I’ve made sure that daily writing of at least 1100 words is a top priority.
This next week I’ll be working on a new Short Story that I want to get done this next week. It’s codenamed “Fervid Locks”. It’s a short story telling a tale of a historical point I hope to put into a book someday. I hope to have that finished this week and begin on a fourth short story.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I’m taking a bit of a break from my novel to get some Short Stories out, for a couple reasons which I hope to discuss later, but suffice it to say now I’m have a blast getting short fiction done and cutting my teeth on editing.
Till next week, keep writing!
