W.I.P Middle Middle Middle


Some burning issues came up last week--well many things came up--and I was only able to blog once. But here's a quick update on the WIP.

I decided on the real end. Bittersweet is the way I like my chocolate, so I'm going with that as a way to end my book.





I'm at almost the exact middle of the book with 35,000 words as of yesterday. *Whooopie*





My MC is suffering, but then so am I because I rather like the kid and keep yelling, "How can you be so stupid?" or  "Please don't do that. Wait. Think. No!! Don't! Arrrg!" You can see the dilemma. I have to keep in trouble and yet I'd rather he were safe. Many sleepless nights lie ahead.

Next week I'm going to join THE LIBRARY CHALLENGE, so I'd love it if you'd stop by and leave a comment and tell others to as well. We need to support our libraries in these tough economic times. Hope you'll help me as well as other bloggers in the U.S. to do that.

  1. I have a love/hate thing going on when I'm torturing my poor characters as well :)

    I've heard a bit about libraries in the US being closed due to the economy. So not a good idea. Libraries are safe havens for kids and free thinking.

  5. Thanks for cheering me on. The middle is rather like climbing to a top you can't see. Pogo is right, Bish. Any pushing and pulling is greatly appreciated.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
