Writing update

I'm so bad.  I promised updates on my Ozzy progress, but I've been so busy writing, I've forgotten do it!

I'm almost finished.  My deadline is January 31st, so I have 3 days.  Right now I'm sitting on 34.5 chapters and 65K.  I foresee another 3 chapters which will add another 5-6K.  Very do-able, especially since I have all day tomorrow to write.  I had the full day on Sunday too and managed to knock out 6K easily, so I'm feeling positive that I'll get done by my deadline.

As for revising afterward, I already know a few things I want to tweak and change, but overall, I'm pretty happy with how things have panned out as far as the plot goes.  Not bad for a total pantser.  I've gone a few places I wasn't expecting to go, but none of those places led to dead ends, so I feel like I'm no the right track.

And I can't wait for you guys to meet Ozzy.  I might post an excerpt for you after I'm done.  I've never written a character like this before.

And on a completely different subject, I'm considering doing the A - Z Blogging challenge again this year, but rather than rambling on about random things each day, I was thinking I'd theme my posts this year.  Is there any particular theme that might be of interest?  I was thinking maybe I could post a film review for each letter of the alphabet.

Is that something that might be interesting you, my loyal readers?


  1. Film reviewing is a good theme. Others you might choose are books or writing related topics. I'll be announcing my theme next week :D.

  2. A film review sounds good and different. :)

  3. I'd love to see a review of adaptations. It mixes books and movies. :)

    1. That might involve having to watch too many more movies. I already have a pile a mile high on my desk....

  4. Congrats on your progress! Film reviews would be great. :)
