  4. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea? No

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you? Yes, about 1/4

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process? yes

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help? No - I'm in it for the whole shebang!

    First creative assignment:
    In keeping with the "operation" theme, the parts of the schedule that are for getting the novel ready could be "pre-op", the writing process could be "the operating table" (or something), and the querying process or pitching could be "post-op." Sorry, it's early in Russia :P

  5. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?
    Nope.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?
    Completed MS going in for yet another tweaking.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?
    Yup. ^_^

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?
    Er ... Maybe ... would need to know more on that before I go definite.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?
    Not just for that, no.

  8. Hi, sounds like you are going to be super busy with this but I wanted to let you know I have awarded you the Reader Appreciation Award. Deets over on my blog, although I quite understand if you don't have time to collect at the moment you still deserve it!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi again! questions:

    1. No, I've got words already.

    2. I'm 58k into it, but eventually it will be about 100k.

    3. I'm sure I'll be able to apply some of the workshop to editing/revising the previous MS I finished.

    4. I already have a few CP's, so I think I'll stick with them for now. We'll see how it goes. :D

    5. I'm signing up for the ideas, but also the camaraderie of diving into writing with a bunch of other folks, and learning and sharing with each other. It's strange, but for a solitary activity, writing sure is easier and more fun when you've got company! :D

    1. Silly, replying to my own comment, but I forgot about the Operation name! To me, the Operation in question is some sort of tactical military adventure.

      How about calling the schedule the Operational Dossier? It has a little bit of a detective/spy feel to it.

      Delete
  10. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?

    Pretty much. I've written the query, named the characters, titled the book, researched the setting, and am in the process of plotting the chapters (funny, because I'll probably end up being a pantser, as usual).

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    I've written the first page.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    Not for this WIP. Can I for my completed ms? Are we allowed to do more than one project?

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    Yes, please!

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    I will use the workshop for these things...and more!

    Operation name suggestion: Operation-Code Red
    (suggests an emergency in process, ha ha)

    Thank you for putting this on! I look forward to it! =)

  11. 1. no
    2. no
    3. yes, it could always use some revisions.
    4. yes, please
    5. That and more
    Operation Resuscitate the Manuscript? Sorry, I'm not being very creative, am I? if i think of something better I'll come back!

  12. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?

    No, though I have some ideas for future books that don't involve characters I've been with for years and years and years.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    I've got tons of completed manuscripts, in various levels of having been edited and revised. Most of the finished books are in three interconnected series, and the others are in two separate family sagas.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    Yes, in part.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    That would be helpful, so long as it's not someone from the school of thought that says you have to nitpick and criticize everything, without saying what you did like. (Had a pretty bad experience with a would-be beta.)

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    No, I love getting the chance to network with other writers.

  13. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?

    After much hand wringing, back and forth deciding - Yes. I am going to use one of my ideas for a book.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    See #1

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    That too.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    Would LOVE to have weekly mentor.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    yes. Hopefully I can get a full MS completed (again). I have three MS completed, in various stages of revision completion. Will use this for those MS.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 1. Barely more than an idea. I have 1K words written, but I'm thinking about scrapping them and starting over.

    2. See question 1.

    3. No. Too soon into my novel. Can I use it for a completed one?

    4. That would be awesome!

    5. Not just for those reasons, but I will take advantage.

    2. ... or working on my half-finished WIP.
    3. Yes, editing and revision, too.
    4. I already have critique partners, but a mentor sounds intriguing. Who would the mentors be?
    5. No, not just for the tips and so on, but those sound great, too.

  17. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?

    I have many ideas, but for this specific workshop I have already started working on my manuscript.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    I have quite a ways to go before I finish it, but I have started.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    Yes and for the agent pitch.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    Yes.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    I will be using it for all that is offered, not just for those tips and so on. It is the very first workshop I have joined and I am excited!

  18. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea? No

    No.

    I've got a first draft being read by a small group of wonderful betas.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?
    It could help, but I hope to get more out of this workshop than that.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?
    I'm interested in more information on this.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?
    I will take away any help and advice and knowledge I can glean, and hopefully can give some in return.

  20. As for workshop titles, I have always been utterly useless at titling things. So I have no suggestions. I get an F for the first creative assignment.

  21. 1. No. I have one MS ready for a first round of revisions, and another WIP.

    2. One, yes. The other is started, but not far along - first chapter.

    3. Yes.

    4. It sounds interesting. I'd like to know more about it before I say yes for sure.

    5. No, but those will be nice as well.

    3. Thanks! :( i hope i do as well!

      The classes are what is listed above right? Just what the names will be not the actual class itself? as the classes haven't started yet.

      When do you also find out if you get a mentor, who it is, how it works? That's to come also right?

      Sorry for all the questions i just don't want to miss out on anything specially because i can only check in once a day at most seedcase of my power situation....

    4. No problems!
      The classes and how everything will work is listed on the post entitled "Operation Agent Ink Classes" I just posted yesterday! Hopefully, that will answer your questions. If not, please let me know!

  24. 1. No.

    2. I'm just a few chapters from the end.

    3. Yes.

    4. That sounds fantastic.

    5. Definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea? I have a little more than that. I have all the research done on the background, legends, setting, etc, character sketches, and an outline.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you? I had about 8,000 words finished but the plot underwent major changes and I changed the tense so I'm starting over.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process? I'm signing up for everything you have to offer. I'll take all the help I can get. :P

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop? A mentor sounds interesting. I'd like to know more about that.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help? I'm planning to re-start this novel for Nano, revise it and if all goes well, pitch it. I'm hoping the workshop can help with all of the above.

    As for the workshop titles, I'm afraid I'm there with Alys. Titles have never comes easy for me. I think I get an F on this assignment too. :P

  26. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?
    No, I have a definite idea in mind.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?
    I've completed this manuscript once, took some of the chapters to a conference, rewrote most of the beginning and middle, took it to another conference, and am now paring it to the bones and restructuring it. Right now, about 35K into it.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?
    I think that would be lovely.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?
    Er, I don't know. I've got a critique group, and I'm taking a class that also involves this WIP, so every assignment gets "editorialish" notes on it. I'd like to know more about the mentors, though.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?
    Well, I'm restructuring this novel, and I want to work on it intensely during NaNo. So, I guess the answer there was no, I will not only be using it for the inspirational help.

    Hmmm, workshop titles... Operation Edit?

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1. No
    2. Yes. I have 4K words written thus far - from two random chapters.
    3. Yes.
    4. A mentor sounds interesting, yes. What does a mentor do, exactly? Do they also supply crits? I have critique partners, but I doubt they'd be able to crit on a weekly basis.
    5. No, not just for the tips. I want to take advantage of the entire "operation"

  28. As I said before, I'm in, I need some fresh eyes on my new WIP-


    1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?
    No, I've got near-complete manuscript. It's a MG adventure/mystery that's currently around 45,000 words.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    Over halfway in, but I plan to get to the end in a couple days.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    YES! I seriously need help here. I'm ready to work HARD.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    Yes please.

    I don't have any CPs who are free over the approaching holidays (Nov-Dec 2012).

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    No, I want a shot at the pitches!

    Pitching is a FATAL weakness of mine. But I'm as ready as I'll ever be to face that fear. But I'd appreciate the inspirational aspect, though.

  29. 1. No
    2. I am working on completing edits of a full manuscript.
    3. Yes! I would love to get my manuscript completely agent/publisher ready! :)
    4. Sounds wonderful!
    5. I'll definitely be taking in all the lovely tips and other info, but I'm also interested in making sure the manuscript and query rock by the end of the workshop!

  30. 1. Are you starting the workshop with only an idea?

    The work I'm using for this workshop is complete but it may help with the novel I have planned out for Nano.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?

    Done (in edits), and the other is about 500 words in.

    3. Are you signing up for the editing and revision process?

    Hell to the yeah.

    4. Would like a weekly mentor/CP just for the workshop?

    Hmm... I could be persuaded... I have two CPs already but I also have a whole month off work coming up.

    5. Will you only be using the workshop for the daily tips, suggestions and the creative inspirational help?

    I'll be using all those things and more. The plan is to be ready to go for the pitches in Feb, and get some insight into those mystical agent-creatures....

    No.

    2. Is your manuscript already started and needs finishing? If yes, how far along are you?
    No. Yes. It all depends on which novel I work on. I have one I am querying but not getting anything from it. I have one I've started but am stuck on. It'll probably be that one.

  62. 1. Have completed MS

    2. I have edited, killed my darlings, re-written at least 100x. Am currently waiting on final feedback from Gina at Talcott Agency

    3. Not at this stage but may do later

    4. As I am from Australia, time differences are a real issue. I have also discovered that UK English and USA English has much more uncommon to each other than just dropping of a “U” or replacing a “S” for a “Z” – grammatically I am seeing several differences and feel more confident with UK English.

    5. Yes – at this stage Yes
