How Is Your Writing Going?



November is coming to an end, and some of you have been doing NaNoWriMo, and others have continued with a somewhat less frenzied pace.

I am one of the people who tries to write on a regular basis and avoids binge writing. I have put the finishing touches, I hope, on a reissue of my essay book, called French On English: A Guide To Writing Better Essays. I am also continuing to work on what I am calling an historical fiction/romance–imagine that coming from this writer of horror! If I can maintain my current pace, I should be able to finish the first draft by the end of January or February.

I will also begin revising one of the other first drafts I have completed. By the way, if you are wondering how I manage to do this, check out my book Get The Draft Done! Helping Writers Finish Their First Draft — how’s that for a bit of shameless self-promotion!

So, I ask all of you: how is your writing going?

  1. Hi Charles, I am glad you are moving things along. I’ve started your new Beta read and also have a number of other books to read over the next few weeks. A Ghost and His Gold is just about finished and I hope to publish in early January, a bit earlier than planned. I have started writing After the Bombs Fell with my mother and am also planning to write another three short stories for another anthology coming out mid next year.

  2. Hola Charles, I am adding the last touches and last paragraph (ugh!) to my book “Rebecca, & The Making of Lettuce Dombrowski.” Covers WW11 to 1970s. A Jewish story.
    I’ve been mentally retracing the characters’ foibles, etc., making sure they are in keeping…and checking the flow and any ‘boring’ sections….
    Although I have never had full confidence in myself (even at my advanced age…) despite writing eight books and lots of poetry, I’ve improved a tad and just love writing anyway.
    Wish me luck! I’m trying for a mainstream publisher this time. (First two books were published mainstream and there’s no comparison…)
    Thank you for reading. And good luck with all your writing endeavours. Cheers!

  3. Hi Charles. Writing this month hasn’t gone very well for me. I haven’t done very much, though a beta reader looked at what I have so far for the sequel to Mystical Greenwood. So I hope that may help get me going again in December.

    Things with my website and publishing were a little more successful, though. Two more anthologies featuring my work were released, I set up an Amazon author page, and my website turned 5 years old.
