I've officially typed up all the pages I had stored from the last writing challenge (and a few new ideas in between). Well, all the usable ones anyway. Some I'm not sure if they'll end up on the cutting room floor or if they'll be nurtured into beautiful, angsty scenes, but for now they stay. Tomorrow I can get back to the business of writing fresh pages.
Do you remember that my goal for my February Austin RWA meeting was to have a completed rough draft of Danger? I'm eager to find out how far I'll actually get with it. By no means do I expect to have the completed rough draft. After all, the meeting is just under 2 weeks away and I've only got 75 pages. But at the same time, I think I can seriously be at least halfway done. Don't you?
Anyway, my goal for the March meeting will be the same again- to have the completed first draft of Danger. The difference is I'll expect more out of myself and my manuscript. No, I won't expect perfection. (I'm crazy, not stupid) But I do expect to have a lot more depth to it than it would have had if I'd finished it for the February meeting. I'll have 3 extra weeks to complete it so I should be able to delve more into my characters and their dilemmas. Then I can join the ranks of the querying, contest entering, revising, hope-to-be-published-sooner-rather-than-later group!
