The State of the Writer: 7/23/17

<–The State of the Writer: 7/16/17          The State of the Writer: 7/30/17–.

A weekly post updated every Sunday discussing my current writing projects and where I stand with them.  This will include any and all work(s) in progress (WIP) be they creative writing, essays/analyses, or reviews of any type.

Project: Story
The Broken Rose
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction (FFVII) Novel
Current Word Count: 267,081
Prior Word Count: 266,620
Word Difference: +461
Status: Editing
Progress: Pending 4th edit

I finally finished the third edit/revision of Chapter 10.  Since I did so much, I obviously have to do a fourth (and hopefully last) one.  I have a sinking sensation that Chapter 11 is going to be a difficult edit, too.  I’d started it before insofar as doing some color coding, but then I decided I’d hold off until I did the full edit.  There’s never a dull moment in the life of a writer/blogger.

I haven’t forgotten about this (how the hell could I?  I keep reading stories that have similar paradigms!).  I’m going to put it on my schedule to work on next weekend.  I’m not waiting until I complete 13 more book reviews.  I’ll just have to figure out how to fit both types of reviews into my schedule, since I also have to do one for the Mass Effect Series.

What are you currently working on?  Is it a creative writing project, essay, review, or something else?  Have you just started something new or are you wrapping up a long term project?

  2. currently just wrapping up a couple of reviews for the month. Next month will move onto just clearing some backlog and get back to non review write ups for the blog. Just fun experience with whatever i’m playing at the moment. Grinding out review after review has kind of burned me out, and want to write a bit less objectively and have some free flow for my content over the next month or two.

    • It is! I did some more editing tonight, and for the most part it’s small tweaks and changes. Though…I really do want to do some fixes to earlier chapters at some point. Posting things piecemeal is tricky because sometimes you come up with fixes for earlier parts o.O
