My Indy Journey – Day 15 Stats

Posted On Jul 15 2014 by

My Indy Writing Journey

Okay. I’m at the one-quarter mark of this two month period. Remember, the goal is to write a first draft in two months. One book will get two months of plotting, two months of drafting, and two months of editing. By working three books at a time in rotation, I should be able to produce six novels in a year. That’s the theory!

So today’s stats:

Drafting Now I Knew You: 1400 words written. 23,300 words total (of 80,000 target)

Editing Camp Dogs: Through scene 56 of 93. Will complete my edit by July 31st, then send off to the pro editor.

Plotting Scorpion Summer: More character development and research. I’ve gotten hold of several children of the Scorpion crew members. Hopefully they can help me fill in some details about Norfolk Navy Brat life in 1968.

Indy tidibts: Lots of great podcasts out there. Just discovered the Sell More Books podcast. Great news and updates from the indy world.

Another test coming up! We’ll be camping Up North from Thursday to Monday. I’m taking the Macbook and will keep up with my schedule. I should be able to blog from there, so y’all can keep me honest.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
