Post  Maggie on Tue May 17, 2011 8:15 pm

We need a new topic that DOESN'T start with QOTD. What are you working on at the moment?

@Stephen Sounds truly awesome! 11 months is a long time for one novel. It's probably good with all the time you're taking!

@Sarah Yay! Writing is good, no matter what. And I've found it's hard to keep telling people what I'm working on since it changes often.

@Amanda AWESOME! It must be pretty good after all this time!

@Scribbler It sounds really neat. Have fun writing it! (That's the best part!) (For me Wink ).

I am currently working on/editing Amanda's fifth-year project, but I've been at least thinking about my WIP, so hopefully I'll know what I'm doing when I finally sit down to work out the plot changes and write it. Very Happy

I was working on a Paranormal but I just switched back to my contemporary novel I had kept aside. I've gotmthe stories in my head, notnthey just need to be written. I don't have much written for either. :/

Lizzy, I'm always switching back & fourth between novels too. I'm never working on the same thing lol.

I have a post-dystopian (yes, I made that genre up) thriller which I'm halfway through editing and may or may not have abandoned, a sci-fi/fantasy novel I'm working on right now, an alternate-history type project wich isn't actually a novel but which will hopefully be awesome which I'm planning on starting this summer, and about seventeen other novel ideas that might eventually happen someday. I dont' know about them yet. XD

Sorry I haven't written you back! The one I sent you was my paranormal. :-D But I got into my other contemporary one so I'm trying to write that. If you want, when I have a chapter written, I can send that your way. :]

Really? Wow! Now I want to know what the paranormal aspect to it is *starts thinking of what it could be* Very Happy

Yeah, when you finish a chapter on the Contemporary I'd love to critique it for you Smile I had a lot of fun critiquing the last one and I wasn't kidding about your descriptions, they're awesome!

I have a pretty good paranormal aspect planned for that one. ;] Once I work on your notes & add more I'll send it your way. &yes, I need to send you my contemporary one, I'm just having some trouble with the dialogue right now. :/ Also, thank you!! I love describing things. The rest of it? Not so much. :]

*excited* I really want to know what it is now Smile What's the problem with the dialogue? Maybe I can help. You're welcome Very Happy That's like the opposite of my problem. I do really well with dialogue and stuff but for me describing things in a three dimensional way is tough (also the showing not telling but at least that's a pretty easy fix once you practice a little Smile)

I guess we all have things we need to work on in our writing. :] But yeah, the showing & no telling is definitely something I need to practice more lol. I'll hopefully shoot you an email sometime tomorrow.

Really? What paranormal aspect do you like to write about??

&yes, it is!! She is such a funny & down to earth person. :] I was really, really happy to have met her. She signed all kinds of stuff for us & even took pictures after the signing. She's just super sweet. <3

Yup Smile normally I make up my own paranormal aspect so I can't really say I write about Vampires or werewolves or something because they are made up in my own head. You know what I mean?

That sounds like so much fun!! I really want to meet her sometime!
