#3daywat progress

So many people are participating--I LOVE it! I think I'll open this spot for new comments if you want to check in, give a progress report, discuss your project, ask each other questions or for advice, etc.

I'm definitely going to host another write-a-thon event in the future. Next time, I'll give advanced notice and we can all hang out and write together virtually. :) I'm having so much fun.

My progress:

I rewrote chapter 1 of POPULAR (CC #14.) It was waaay too passive. Beginnings always take me the longest and it took about six hours to get the opening right. I edited and wrote more of chapter 2. Got stuck on chapter 3 and skipped ahead to a horse scene. My faves. :) Lauren's about to start a lesson with Mr. Conner. Horse scenes flow fast for me.

So, if you like, check in here or on the first 3daywat post.

Heyyy SG I'd trade stories with you! You know I like to start stories but never finish them :P But maybe if I have a helper I'd actually stay focused and not get side tracked!!! Plus you could PM me on HM to keep writing, and you know if I don't respond there, just harass me at CCA role play. I'm getting ready for school right now, it's 5:55 a.m. and I gotta be at the bus stop by 7:45, so you know how much effot i gotta put into being purty ;) I'll PM you this eveing!

Sad to report I only did one day. It was harder writing during a holiday weekend then I thought it would be. But the one day I did get in 45 minutes and heavy edits to chapter one of my latest WIP. And to make up for not doing it Sun or Mon, I wrote today during my lunch hour. Thanks for hosting this Jessica!
