Progress Report


Going back to yesterday’s topic I would also like to mention that it’s never easy to set and follow through your own deadlines, especially, if your motto states: “Sloth I abide”. For me it’s a mixture between this and a state of being scattered all over the place. I have yet to discover a formula to allow to do all the things I want to do and getting it done cost me two whole days with no writing accomplished.

But today I accomplished my goal and here is my word count stat for the time being:

5593 / 80000 words. 7% done!

SMH is the working title, which I will keep a secret as well as the genre and main story line and the characters. It’s going to be a very hush, hush project, since it’s a niche novel in general and I would be more comfortable to talk about it in detail, when I am done with the rough draft.

3500 / 5000 words. 70% done!

“Lunar Hues” is my current short story project and I think it’s safer to discuss since I am on the second edits and the deadline for it is safe distance away. The story is about shifters in a post apocalyptic world and I hope the anthology I am submitting to, doesn’t pull a submission change under my nose like it happened last time.

Good luck for your short story project.

I expect it to be done with it this weekend, but we will see. Thank you for stopping by.

I love the progress meters. The layout for your new site is very neat :) You know Harry, you're one of those bloggers that really inspire me. First it's the blogging, now it's the story writing. I gave short story writing a try a couple months ago and I loved it. I have yet to finish a solid piece, but I'm looking forward to getting back into it as soon as I sort out my other priorities.

I wish you the best success for your stories :)

PS: I've finally found the time to write an About page for my blog :)

@ Mark David: First of all, I am happy that you managed to get around making an about page. I need a new bio for this blog as well.

And thanks for the compliment, though I am sure that up close I am not something as impressive. I am slow and unorganized as hell. This deal with the writing and 2 blogs running simultaneously is risky, but I like the strain.

I think it's very rare for writers to be organized :)
