I've joined up with a group of writers running a writing marathon during the month of August. I love writing with others because it keeps me motivated.
So each week, we are instructed to post a "this is where I am" post. There's a certain format we have to follow and this is my first one:
Marathon Goal for the month:
I've targeted my goal at 80,000. I'm using the Book in a Month guide. I plan to take Saturday's and Sunday's off. This means I need 4,000 each day.
Stage of Writing:
This will be 1st draft of a historical fantasy. No title yet. Only an idea, character and a very rough outline.
What inspired this WIP:
A my family tree. I've heard and gathered so many fascinating things about my family and ancestors and some of the things I've stood in amazement thinking about them! This one involves my Indian blood line. She was a Cherokee princess and I'm writing her story. Obviously with a little make believe. Kinda.
What might slow me down:
1. My daughter will give birth to my FIRST grand baby!
2. School starts and I home school, so August is always a hard month. Call me crazy, I know.
3. Just for good measure, my wips from Camp NaNo are going into revisions and edits, so this will be a busy month!
Thanks, and I'm looking forward to reading everyone's posts:)
