This week I finally sent (with a prayer) my revised ms to my agent for her consideration. Now it's nail biting time. However, I'm reading a good book by Laurie Halse Anderson and she's blowing me out of the water. (I should save that part for IWSG)

After weeks of an empty head when it comes to a new story, I must admit, tiny whisperings tickled my brain. 
Since I'm a total pantser, who knows where it will lead me. I began typing and barely made a dent into my wip with a 4k word count.

My goal for next month is to reach 20k on this new wip. 
(I'm a slow writer)

Are you reaching your goals & What are you Celebrating?

  12. 20K is a good goal. I always give myself way too high goals and end up disappointed with myself.

  13. All the best with the ms you sent to your agent, Cathrina.
    I'm also a pantser (pantster, pantzer (I see it spelled differently everywhere) and a slow writer, but I believe that's how my subconscious prefers it to be.
