Crack Your W-I-P! (More Motivation Needed?)

The more outside accountability the better, right?

Funny enough, I didn't know that friend, Laini Taylor, had just declared March a mini-NaNo. That pink-haired lovely is set to finish the rough of her W-I-P by the end of the month. She has a Mr. Linky set up if you want to join and check in on Wednesdays HERE.

But don't forget to leave a goal for the month of March HERE, especially since Jane offered up red licorice whips for those who meet their goal! All the motivation the better.

I plan to post Monday through Friday (mostly) as a gathering spot for daily support. I don't know about you, but I dearly appreciate the daily writerly company. A heart-felt thank you to those of you who join me. :)

How 'bout today? Anyone with me?

I am POSITIVE that I can finish this draft in March. I have one more scene to scratch out, so I think I can finish today. Whoop! It's about time.

THEN I will print it out for my lovely and beautiful critique group to have on Monday. While I wait on their candid and brilliant feedback, I'll start something new.

We can do it (together)! Thanks for hosting this, Jolie. Laini sent me over and I'm all for it.

I was most productive last Friday when I joined you here. This level of motivation/accountability is just right for me.

I finished my syn-OP-sis. I finished my syn-OP-sis.

And now I get to start the actual writing! Whee! Fun!

Cuppa Jolie said...

Yes you can, Kim! Can't wait for the book and the Mooning. :)

Jackee - Yes! Together. Does it make it so much better that way. Glad you came by from Laini's (love her!). Let's have some fun this month, shall we?

Yat-Yee - So, so glad to hear that! I look forward to seeing you lots. :)

Martha - Yay, you! And I'm so honored that you stop here on such a big day in your life. xo

Hi Everyone,
I'm working on a middle grade novel I started ten years ago! I started and stopped more than once. I opened it up again last month and promised myself this time I will finish. I'm writing AND deleting, but it will get done. :)
Thank you for the encouragement.

Natives are home. Only 517 words because I spent a couple of hours with the daughter who broke her glasses and couldn't find her spare, and then proceeded to choose a pair of Calvin Klein frame that costs an arm and a leg.

Also, I was so deep in writing that I forgot I was cooking! Overcooked chicken, anyone? The fam is going to revolt.

I knew my multi-tasking skills suck, but even so...
