here to find out more about how it works.
So, last week I told everyone that I decided to make a couple changes to improve Wannabe Writers. In case you missed it let me sum up: Mostly I just told everyone that I don't want to limit people to writing their posts as a model of mine. Some people do a weekly update type thing and if you want to link your own weekly writing update than that can serve as your wannabe writers post too. And also, I'm urging everyone to answer the question I pose at the bottom of this post in the comments section of my blog. And then when you write your own post ask your own question. That way when you visit different blogs than you can see a number of different questions and answers.
Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished. I'm working hard on my current WIP and trying to hammer out a first draft. Current Word Count: 39,500. So, I wrote about 10K this summer. My goal was to finish it. My new goal is to finish by Christmas time.
My current problem(s): I don't really have any right now. It was a good week. I wrote a good deal and I'm pretty happy with the direction I'm taking things.
My question this week: Does your writing ever surprise you? I realized something about one of my characters that shocked even me. I never knew or intended this certain character to end up like they are. It's almost as if they've developed a mind of their own. Has anyone else ever had this happen?
