Wednesday's Writing Update: Rewrites and Winners

Happy Wednesday!

Last Wednesday was the one year anniversary of the release of my horror novelette Once Upon a December Nightmare. For those who commented, if you wish to have a copy, it's yours. These people are Summer Ross, Nicole Zoltack, C D Meetens, and Julie Flanders. Just send me an email at cherie.reich(at)gmail(dot)com to claim your prize.

Tomorrow is September 1st. I can't believe it. August stats and September goals will be up next Wednesday. Also, I will begin my September blogger schedule tomorrow:
Mondays – Promo Mondays (Promo, Interviews, Guest Posts)
 Tuesdays – Teaser Tuesdays (Two lines from a current book I'm reading, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
 Wednesdays – Wednesday's Writing Update
 Thursdays – 1st and 3rd Ask the Editor
 2nd and 4th – Purrsonal Thursdays
 Fridays - #fridayflash

Now, on to rewrites. I'm working hard (NaNo-style) to finish up the last half of Virtuoso. Right now, I'm focusing just on the story and getting it all into 1st person. My goal is to finish it by Labor Day. Then, I can make sweeping passes for emotions, descriptions, additional scenes needed, etc.

So what are you working on lately?

You've got everything all set. Awesome! I can't believe it will be September tomorrow either. I'm working on revisions when I get the time today.

Wow, that's a hefty blog schedule!

September came too fast for me! Good luck with Virtuoso! I can't wait to read the end.

Awesome schedule! I'm just trying to keep my head above water. And I made some new resolutions, and I'm working on those.

That's an awesome schedule! I love how organized you are :)

I love working NaNo style all year long--that's what I call being a writing NINJA :D

Right now I'm working on some last revisions/edits before my book goes to the editor!

I love self imposed deadlines - or imposed for that matter. They really serve to drive me forward. Good luck with your Labor Day deadline.

My current deadline to is complete the rewrites of my first wip by the end of September. I'd better get writing!

Oh, thank you! I'll email you soon re: Once Upon a December Nightmare. I'd love to read it.

Looks like you're going to be really busy with that schedule! I could do with some of your organisation skills, I think.

Good luck with getting Virtuoso finished.
