Writing Wednesday

Hi there!

So, a while ago I participated in the What’s Up Wednesday blog hop. Sadly, the blog hop is no more, but I really enjoyed having a weekly place to catch you up on my writerly doings, and check out what other writers are up to as well.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to do my own Writing Wednesday post. This isn’t going to be anything “official”, and I probably won’t actually get around to doing a post every week. But it’ll help me to post with a semi-regular topic already in place. I’m just going to post short updates…no super long, in-depth discussions or anything! If you’d like to join in, tell me what you’ve been up to in the comments, or link to your own blog!

So here we go:

~ What I’m Writing ~

 Currently I’ve got two main projects and a short story on the go. I actually just finished the first draft of one of these projects, so technically I’ll be talking about it in the next section. The two main projects are both YA Contemporaries, while the short story is not, =).

~ What I’m Editing ~

As I mentioned in the section above, I just finished the first draft of one of my main projects. I finished it on Monday, so I’m currently in the first-round edits stage. I always do my first-round edits immediately after writing is complete. I do this for two reasons: one, I want to make sure the story actually flows and makes sense, and two, there are usually a few details I’ve added during the writing process which I need to back-add earlier into the story–I like to take care of this right away!

~ What I’m Researching ~

This week’s research has been mostly dance terminology. Not one kind of dance in particular, but a collection of various, kind of random, dance terms…I have specific ideas of what certain movements should look like, but have no idea what they’re called…it’s actually quite difficult trying to find the proper terms when you’ve got one move in mind and don’t quite know how to describe it!

~ What I’m Planning ~
This next week is all about edits! I’ll be working on the first-round edits of the MS I just finished writing. If I need an editing break, I’ll probably be listening to music, trying to come up with a playlist (or partial playlist) to go with the story.

Well, that’s my writing week so far…how about you?

  1. What!?! What's up Wednesday is ended? I'm so out of the loop. I loved that meme/hop.

    I'm drafting the third book in my trilogy, publishing flash fiction monthly, and working on keeping the household together in the meantime. Life. It's pretty crazy, right?

    I know, it was a great hop, =(

    Definitely sounds like you're busy! I say do the writing first, the housework second, =P
