FINAL UPDATES

GRAPEMO FINAL UPDATES!


Took me a while to get this up today--I've been madly editing! Yes, I did not make my Grapemo goal even with the extra week, but I still accomplished quite a bit. I think I should be finished within the next 2 weeks (oh please, god, please, pleeeease!)

You guys ROCK ROCK ROCK!!!!

anywherebeyond had hoped to get to 50k, and wasn't sure she'd even manage that. She is shocked that she finished, shocked that she revised, shocked that she’s sitting back to relax and wait for revisions!

fandoria got a page written (and counts herself lucky she even got that much because it was pretty much the week from you-know-where).

feonua reached her 55k goal!!

Kathie C worked some on the Tut novel and now has the whole plot and more dialogue worked out.

kbaccellia was able to rewrite the beginning of GODDESSES and sent off to JS for feedback. She also finished final edits to CROSSED OUT!

learningtoread Grapemo total: 1. Cover article completed 2. Two features completed 3. YA revision completed 4. Revision edited 5. Revision sent to readers

lisa_schroeder is up to 14,000 words and 150 pages!! She surpassed her goal of 12,000 words. Yay!

newport2newport polished her In The Author's Tent interview with VARIAN JOHNSON--check it out!

njnelson didn't achieve my PWG but b/c of GrapeMo she wrote on a more regular basis in February, and most importantly has a story idea that she thinks could actually go somewhere

onegrapeshy also fell short of her goal of line-editing her entire ms, but she managed to get about 2/3 of the way through it-—and had so much fun hosting another Grapemo!

shoebrera got her 1st chapter appropriately revised and it’s now in the hands of an online writers group. Thus, PWG obtained!

Again, if you are interested in being entered for a random drawing (to win a copy of either The Forest for the Trees by Besty Lerner or On Writing by Stephen King, plus a signed copy of either one of my books, please send me your 100 word blurb about how GRAPEMO has either 1) helped you 2) depressed you 3) made you crazy as hell. These will be posted closer to the end of the week and the drawing will be held on Friday.

Tomorrow is our last TEASER TUESDAY so please share if you can! I would like to get these up by noon tomorrow.

NOBODY fails Grapemo! You just have to re-eval your goals, lol, and try again!

Well last year I failed due to a pregnancy and this year I failed due to a death...so I figure they cancel each other out and I have a clean slate now, no?

You're running out of excuses, lol. You used up the big ones first! ;)

I move this up. Wonder who else got bumped with my crappy cutting-and-pasting job.

I failed at February, not just Grapemo. Congrats to all you goal-keepers! :)

Congrats to all of you! Even if my GrapeMo goals dug themselves a hole and hid from me, I still get to be uber excited about all this amazing progress!
