WIP Wednesday

It is Wednesday and I should be writing about my writing, but I am at a loss this summer. Even my edits seem to have come to a standstill. I have finished two stories this month. I have another one that I need to get cracking on so I can meet the August 1st deadline (I started it last month and haven't touched it since). Now I have swim lessons (I just about wrote that as lesions) and an anniversary coming up next week to go with my wife's well deserved vacation time. Needless to say, this has been a very unproductive (with the writing anyway) Summer.

I think for today's WIP I may work on that story for The First Line. It starts out 'My life is a sham-' Cool premise, I think I can make something work for it. We will find out. Have a happy hump day and may the rest of it go smoothly for you all.

Hey, two stories finished is nothing to shake a stick at. Which is really a silly saying if you think about it.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Carrie- I have wondered about that phrase as well. It makes it sound like you are distracting a dog. "Get the stick, go git it, eye on the stick. . ."

Katey said...

Summer is meant to be unproductive, but you sound like you're making it work in spite of that. I agree with Carrie-- 2 stories is impressive!

Love that first line :D

I can't believe it's Wednesday again already. You sound like you're doing just fine, and maybe the writing prompt thing will inspire you to the best story ever. :)

Cate Gardner said...

Two stories is fantastic - you're one up on me. ;)

Happy Hump Day - erm, I'll ignore what that means in the UK.

I love the "My life is a sham" premise. Very tempting : )

Aaron Polson said... I can't ignore "hump day" (Thanks Cate).

Congrats on two tales, Mr. Eyberg.
