Wednesday Writing Goal~New Ending

My writing break has come to an end and I’m moving on to working on the revision of book 3 in the channeler series, which now has a title, Rise of a Rector, whoo hoo!!! Compass Press has set a tentative release date of October for it. *happy dance* So , I’ve been working on a new ending that I’m totally loving. I didn’t finish it but that’s okay, my goal was to start working on it.

I blew my reading goals out of the water and read a few hundred pages of Tears of the Broken last week. The character development is wonderful and it’s really pulling me in. That’s a lot for me, normally I read much slower as I am usually working on writing my own books.

How about you, did you meet you writing goals this week? What about your reading goals?

  1. I'm nowhere near as focused as you on this stuff. But every once in awhile I surprise myself and write a book in 10 days. I possibly have an addictive personality. (Ahem). :)

  3. Once I abandoned the boring book I was reading, my reading really picked up. I was reading a book I couldn't put down. :)

    I was side tracked on my writing goals because I had to work on an assignment for a writing course. I'm almost caught up, so now I can go back to editing my wip.

    Yay for figuring out your new ending. :D

  6. I finished edits and sent MS back to my agent! Woohoo! Now, getting back into drafting mode. As to reading, I tend to go through 2-3 books per week because I read to and from work - long commute. :)

    1. Yay Tina, that's fantastic! I envy your long commute and opportunity to read. I'm getting quicker since the hubby bought me a Nook and I can read on my treadmill.

  8. My ending to my latest has two possibilities, depending on the sales of THE RIVAL. Right now if sales stay anemic, Victor Standish stays dead. Of course, I am pulling for sales to increase, but no sense in telling tales no one reads.

    I pray the sales for your books blast through the roof. Have a magical week, Roland

  9. Wow, You Go, Girl! That is excellent. I'm behind on writing goals, but the story's always churning away in my brain. Reading: still reading WILD--it's a memoir, highly recommended even if you're not a memoir person. About a writer who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail to get some clarity in her messed up life. Also reading a wonderful manuscript( !!!) and critiquing it. I think it's got a bright future. :))

    1. Don't feel bad. Life is just telling you to slow down a bit. You'll come back full force soon, I have no doubt!

  11. Yay, so exciting - the 3rd book coming out! Congratulations, that's wonderful.
    I was able to meet my goal of editing the first 4 chapters of WIP after Tina M. beta-read it for me. Now that I did that (as the beginning chapters were really bugging me), I'm moving ahead with the writing.
