Writing Update

I’m hoping to start updating you guys more frequently about my writing. I rarely do it now, so we’ll see how it goes.

So. What have I been working on? Well, a lot of things.

Writing Update Rachel Poli

I ended up not following my June Goals as well as I thought I would.

I had planned on editing George Florence for the first half of the month and editing The Lost Girl the second half of the month.

I, of course, did not follow that. When I wrote my June goals I knew Camp NaNoWriMo was a month away, yet I forgot about it at the same time.

So I have been editing George Florence and have been working on that off and on all month. The novel is getting there. I think I have about two or three more drafts before it will be ready to leave the nest. I was hoping to have it finished by December, but I’m not entirely sure that’s going to happen.

But instead of editing The Lost Girl, I’ve been reading Hunter.

Hunter is my fantasy novel that won the poll you guys voted in for me to write for Camp NaNoWriMo. I wrote this novel last July for Camp and wrote 50,000 words of it. Now I have to remember where I was going with the story and add on another 50,000 words.

So July is going to be a busy month. I’ll be trying to work on Hunter as well as George Florence. We’ll see how that goes. I have no idea what August is going to bring.

But that’s the basic gist of where I stand with my novels at the moment. Since I’m working less this summer, I want to take these next two months to get myself organized and figure out what I really want to do with my novels.

How has your writing been going?

  1. As Charles already said, good luck getting organized. I don’t envy you that. I need to do the same myself, but that’s beside the point…

    As for writing, I’ve been doing a couple of short stories here and there. There were three anthologies I wanted to submit to. One was due the 25th, and I missed it. Another is due July 1st, and I’m hoping to make that one. We’ll see. The last one isn’t due until October, which works because I’ll just submit the story I was going to submit to the one due the 25th. 🙂

    As for Camp NaNoWriMo. I just finished creating my first private cabin and have been inviting people to join. It’s going to be a fun-filled month, and I can’t wait to get started.

    1. It’s amazing how the organization gets away from us. I’m usually very organized.
      Good luck with your short stories and the anthologies! That’s exciting news. 🙂
      I can’t wait for Camp to start, but then again… I’m not ready, lol.

  2. Hi, I find when my writing/editing/proofreading is going well, my house is messy and the To Do list builds up, and when I’m up to date with life things, my writing gets neglected. It’s so impossible to do everything without a housekeeper, cook and personal assistant.
    I’m currently doing the final proofread of one of my books and am querying for it at the same time. Then I’m about to move on to do a major edit on another book.
    Good luck with all your stuff. Would it me easier to stick to one project at a time? I find jumping around to different books gets me unfocused. Just an idea. 🙂

    1. Ah yes. Finding a good balance is so tough.
      I bounce from project to project because otherwise I’ll think too much on the one project and I have too many ideas itching to get out, lol.
      Good luck with your own projects! I hope your queries get picked up soon. 🙂

Let me know what you think!
