Where Your Words At? WIPmo Check In!

Where your words at yo? I haven’t made it to my WIP yet because I’m still revising like a Robot Beast Champ Soldier. Yes, that means like, really hard core. Hours upon hours and hours and hours––and sometimes with a toddler sitting on my shoulders. (Yes, literally).

I FINALLY finished Friday night/morning–or was it Sat? I don’t even know anymore. But when I say finished, I guess I don’t really mean finished. Now I’m in the middle of a read-thru which I hope to finish tomorrow. And then I plan to break for at least a day before diving back into the WIP.

Everybody lemme know what you got going on: WIPMo CHECK IN HERE in comments section! Everything is cool and laid back–no hard and fast start times, so jump in anytime!

Random goal that may or may not have to do w/ writing. This week I’m SO gonna:

You Better Write, Bitch.

You want a hot novel, a CP who don’t think you-so-sorry?

You want an agent, a publisher, a Maserati?

You better write, Bitch. You better write, Bitch.

You want to feel fancy? You wanna tweet fly numbers on #writeclub Friday nights?

You want to see your MC in a Spielberg movie? ABC Family series?

You better write, Bitch. You better write, Bitch.

Now get to work, Bitch.

Now get to WIP, Bitch.

Soooo, I’m revising/editing right now and I thought I could jump back and forth between that and WIP, but I haven’t been able to…yet. Maybe I will this week, maybe I won’t. I might have to wait to hit the WIP once my revision is totally done. Either way, I SWEAR I’m writing! 

So, let’s get on with it. WIPMo CHECK IN! If you didn’t hit our PSEUDO SIGN UP, that’s OK. Just jump in here!

WIPMo PSEUDO SIGN UP Right Here, Y’all!

It sounds like everyone is NaNoWriMoing this November. Writing a whole new novel in the month of November sounds like fun. But November is like twelve minutes away. It’s something I would be all over and I swear I would do it…if only:

1. I wasn’t working on edits or revisions that are taking up ALL THE SPACE in my heart and brainz right now.

2. I wasn’t boobs deep in a WIP that I just can’t lose focus on–especially for a newbie or I’ll LOSE everyyyyything!

3. It didn’t already take every ounce of self-control to not self-edit like a freaktasticle only to get a whopping 200-458 word-count in 30 minutes for #writeclub on a Friday night. 50K+ in a month for a brand new project?! Geeeulp.

4. I had a free live-in nanny

5. I had Jake Gyllenhaal and Gisele Bundchen taking turns massaging my back

Then I could totally do NaNoWriMo right now.  Instead, I am going to get amped up for everyone else doing it. I have no problem cheering on the NaNoers. I am jealous in awe of anyone who can write so fast, footloose and fancy free! GOGOGO You!

Also, I am going to use November as WIP Month. I’ve got to finish my WIP that I’ve been half slacking on and half letting life and other shenanigans get in the way of. And it looks like there are other peeps who are in the same clippership as I. Yay.

Let’s finish what we started guys.

So, who’s with me? Ya with me guys? Everybody WIPMo! Well, Everybody who’s not NaNoWriMoing anyway.

Let’s use the comments section for a PSEUDO SIGN UP.
