Writer Recharge Update #3!

Whether you're delighting next to the crackling fireplace of a Shiny New Idea with a warm cup of tea and a sleepy puppy at your feet or spinning out on the ice-covered roads of revisions in an attempt to avoid the snow-packed ditch, we want to write with you! What do you want to accomplish this month? Hit a daily word count? Revise a certain number of pages or chapters each week? Complete a draft by the end of the month? Click here for more details!

My overall Writer Recharge goal is was to finish my second draft. I’ve been setting some daily goals on Twitter and last week I posted a few goals for the week…
1) get to the finale (I’m seriously almost there)
2) revise the scenes that lead up to the climax
3) participate in at least one nightly Twitter party.
Well, I didn’t participate in a nightly Twitter party L BUT I did finish my revision!

Cue happy dance. J And many exclamation points: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thursday I wrote a polishing list and it’s weirdly short. I’ve already scratched a few items off and am hoping to finish off the rest by Wednesday. I plan to send it off to readers Friday. And I’m both crazy nervous and excited about that.
Anyway, hopefully next Monday I can tell you that I’ve sent off the WiP. And I may or may not share an excerpt. Until then, I hope you have a fabulously final week of productivity with Writer Recharge! Let me know how it’s going in the comments! 


  1. Way to go!!! Good luck with your polishing list this week! And a few "!!!" for luck :)

  2. You better have sent that WiP off by Monday! ;-) I'm thinking we should be able to stick to our goal of trading on Friday, yes? So excited to read for you, lady!

  3. Go you!! Finishing a revision is such an awesome goal to hit

  4. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <-- some more celebratory exclamation point confetti. :) Well done, Alison! It sounds like things are going well, and the fact your "polish" list is short, and you still love your novel bode well, I think. I look forward to your *success* report on Monday. :D

  5. Congratulations! One step closer! =D

  6. Awesome on finishing your draft!! One of the best feelings ever :) Sorry you couldn't join us on Twitter, but you were there in spirit, and I think that really does count.

  7. Aaaaaaah! HUGE CONGRATS! That's fantastic and the most important goal in the end anyway. What a great feeling! :-)


Yay! I LOVE comments!
