Day 20: GRAPEMO UPDATES!

Smiley anywherebeyond is at 25k--halfway to 50k! "I wrote 5 k last week, and would like to bump that up to 10 in the coming week!"

Smileyboothyisawesome did better this week and wrote a thousand words, but is revising his initial goal and will write 5,000 words by the end of the month--"Much more manageable with my schedule."

SmileyCari D finished her goal for this week--"to be done with Chapter 10.  Now my goal is to get through enough of Chapter 11 so I can have all three done by the end of Grapemo."

Smileycatherine_james made no progress last week (but she DID let me know about it) (and neither did onegrapeshy)

Smileyedgyauthor added 50 words to her WIP "when not typing up what I previously wrote this month.".

Smileyeshakespear is "chiseling away at the quick and dirty revision of my MG fantasy novel. I have 13 chapters to go and plan to finish it by the end of the month. I've started working on an encyclopedia about the world and characters so I can keep all the magic and creatures straight. Also, I've been making more time in my life for the writing and making it my focus. I've given MY BLOG a makeover and made writing its focus as well. I'm also going to start blogging on the Utah Children's Writers blog once a week in March and I'm excited about this."

Smileyfandoria spent another several hours finishing up reading through her WIP while on a plane coming back home from CA yesterday.

Smileyinknbeans finished re-writes through Chapter 7 "including the extensive research on PTSD that I didn't bother doing during NaNo."

SmileyJean D continues to write EVERY DAY.

Smiley Kathie C made very little progress, thanks to Life Getting in the Way (I hear ya, chickie).

Smileykbaccellia finished her final edits and completed one and a half chapters of revisions." My goals for this week is to do either on chapter or one hour of revisions each day.

Smileynjnelson is "slowly but surely getting into a good GrapeMo writing groove."

Smileyonegrapeshy got sidetracked with first pass pages for THE UNQUIET but managed to get through 190 pages. Her goal for this week is to finish proofreading the manuscript.


Smiley x_think_twice "I'm up to 14,641 words and I finally figured out what I'm going to do with one of my troublesome secondary characters. 40k feels so far away, but I can still totally make it if I do 10 pages a day until the end of the month." AND she feels pretty good about her progress.

So much progress! GO GRAPENUTS! I'm so behind, though. Time to get more serious about Grapemo....

I'm behind, too, and busy, and burned out from work, too tired to blog, and a totally TERRIBLE hostess this year. :(

You're not a terrible hostess. I think you're doing great! Especially when you consider how much you've got going on this year.

I agree with fandoria--not terrible at all! You've done a fantastic job keeping Grapemo posts up-to-date despite your busy-nes.

I think you're doing great, Jeannine. Some of us are just lousy participants. <~~>
