Report Card

by Kay~Kacey on 6/1/2005

okay, not actually a report card..though it is the end of school here :shock:. ..but a progress report at least. I’ve written 206 new pages in the last 3 weeks. Completely marked up and revised 272 pages of same manuscript and input all the changes. I’ve never done this volumn of writing this quickly. My whole immersion writing theory. I am SO into this book :love: I’m quite proud of myself. See, I surprised myself. I can be disciplined, who knew??? :beer:

I’m ready to write the ending. You know that Fear of First Page thing I had going on awhile ago? Well, now I have fear of last chapter. 🙄 How to pull it all together. Tie up the lose strings. Make a satisfying ending.

And the bad thing?? I’m in my NO EXCUSES mode… :blah: Yes, I’ve heard them all, and I’m not allowing myself to use ANY excuse this time. So tomorrow I have to get over the fear of last chapter…and just write it. Maybe all of it if I can get into the flow.

Now I’m dreaming about how I’m going to reward myself for all my hard work… take a brief refill the well break and get back at it. Though, I’ll have that whole fear of first page thing to tackle again…

Good luck, Kacey!! I know you’ll do great. Drink lots of coffee and plow through it. :coffee2:

You’re on fire! How many pages in how long. I wish. WTG.:coffee2:Celebrate!

I’m the same way when I get toward the end of writing a book, it’s like my engine stutters and dies for a bit. 😉

Good luck with yours!

You’ve done an incredible amount of work in the past few weeks,Kacey. Just think, one more chapter and you can CELEBRATE!!! You can do it!!!

Mary June 2, 2005 at 8:42 am

That’s great. We’ll have to celebrate in Reno!! :beer: I can’t wait for Reno. I want to relax.

Rene June 2, 2005 at 9:14 am

I can’t believe how much you have done!!! That is amazing. You will be fine with the last chapter. I have the same problem, particularly the last sentence. Mine always ends up so cheesy.

WTG on the page count! Fabulous! And I like your “no excuses” mode. I need to get into that frame of mind more often. 🙄

so, on my no excuses mode..I figured out I needed to write another scene for earlier in the book. Wrote that. No exucses so I didn’t count that as my writing for the day, which I usually would have and started on the ending, but found out I have to go into work for a bit. grrrrrrrrr :angry: But at least I’ve conquered the fear of last chapter because I started it. Hope to finish it later today :typing:

You are really rockin’, Kacey!!! :beer: You definitely deserve time to relax and do whatever you want. :bath:

WTG on the page count!!! I’m a big fan of immersion. Unfortunately, I’m a big fan of excuses too, so I’m gonna hang out here for a while and hope some of that no excuses mode rubs off…:grin:

Here’s to your finishing -:beer:

Wow! You are HOT! :angry: (Sorry, I’m not mad, but I needed his flames. *g*) Way to go! Good luck on the last chapter and yes, baby yourself for a few days after that.

Jill June 3, 2005 at 2:38 pm

Wow, you’ve done a lot of writing! Want to come do mine now? :crazy2:
