Writing Update, 4/12

(The #1LineWed theme was “wise.” Searching through my ms, I realized I use “otherwise” a lot.)

Progress
I finished my Wicked Witch, Retired reread/rewrite last week. Yay! (Yes, it took a month to get through 58,000 words…) Started writing new words Monday. Schlepped the laptop to the library yesterday which went pretty well aside from losing confidence in the bus I was on and deciding to walk two miles to my transfer.

There’s a lot of travel in this book and I’m very close to setting distances between things and speed scores to various travel methods so I can get the timing down.

What is This?
Wicked Witch, Retired is my current writing project. It is the sort-of sequel to a flash story I wrote, “Wicked Witch for Hire,” which is currently available in the anthology Bounded in a Nutshell.

#1lineWed is a Twitter event hosted by @RWAKissofDeath. Every Wednesday writers share a line of their current work-in-progress based on a theme.
