A Writer's Week #28: Rounding 3rd...

Wow, what a week here at The Deliverers Publishing Headquarters! I really don't know where to begin. Let's see, the blog made it to 100 followers this week. As of right now, the total is 101. Thank you to all the wonderful followers of The Deliverers: Sharky and the Jewel! Thanks for reading.

I also started a great giveaway, called the I Like Summer Giveaway. Click to title of the giveaway to enter. When you do, you'll have a chance to win 5 autographed Deliverers bookmarks, and autographed copy of The Deliverers: Sharky and the Jewel, and a $25 Amazon gift card. The giveaway runs until the end of July. Enter now, and have your friends enter, too. The more the merrier!

I have to say, I love these animations. It's kind of like reading the Daily Prophet, don'y you think? Now if only I could get the pictures I take to move like this, we'd be all set!

Where was I? Oh yes. My writer's week. So, that's two great things that happened this week. The best thing, though, is my actual writing. I wrote a best ever 3,000 words of The Deliverers 2 this week. I really knocked it out of the park! That puts me at a little over 35,000 words and 157 pages. This means, I'm 70 to 75% finished with the first draft.

In baseball terms, since there are four bases, I'm just about at third base, and soon I'll be heading towards home. It's a great feeling to finally be able to have the end in sight. There's still a bunch that has to happen before the story's done. Eric and company are in a tight spot, but help is on the way. Will it arrive in time? I sure hope so, but that hasn't been written yet, so I can't say for sure.

I do have a vision for the rest of the story, and I don't foresee any major snags remaining--although that doesn't mean one or two won't appear from nowhere. I'm also starting to turn my attention to thinking about rewriting. For instance, the first chapter needs to be rewritten for sure, and I have to weave in a couple of other elements that I thought of along the way.

After so much writing success this week, I'm hoping I'll be able to follow it up next week with more of the same. Will the hitting streak continue, or will I start slumping? I'll let you know next week.
