Moved on outta here!

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to let you know I have departed Blogger for greener pastures. You can now find my blog at Wordpress: Wendy L. Young, Writer.

Been Busy Being a Busy Bee

I've neglected my blog horribly over the last six weeks as I focused my attention on editing the book, which I plan to have available on Kindle this Friday. The cover art is done. The rewrites are done. All I am doing over the next few days is playing Typo: Search and Destroy with the hope it will be as error-free as possible.

The response so far has been very positive. It feels like a child is leaving home - you can't shield it anymore and you probably screwed some things up, but you have to let it go and get on with things! (For example, the 2nd novel that is being outlined already ;) )

Belated Update: 1st Draft Done

Novel 1st draft - done!

I finished it last Sunday evening and have subsequently spent this entire week typing...and typing....and typing. And I'm still not done!

I've typed over 110 pages this week, in between work, family, and fun, and have about 30-40 more to go. Then it's on to editing and more editing.

Excited to see it coming together!

# Pieces Written

Scripts - 3

4 if you count re-writing Sleeping Beauty, Hillbilly-style, in High School

Novels- 1 + .1 + .7

Can I count my 14 or so mentally composted story ideas? No? Drat.

Short Stories - 2

I'll say two officially, so far (one of those still needs to be typed up)... I lost at least 2 of my old ones and I've wiped the slate clean.

Poems- 3...4? 42?

I won awards for 3. After that I lost count.
