I actually managed to do a tiny bit of work on my WIP!
Once again, I had to re-familiarize myself with it, so I did some re-reading. I made little 1-2 sentence notes about what happened in the chapters to make the process a little easier. I managed to get through just over half of the chapters. I also marked (highlighted) some of the passages that I know need to be deleted.
I’d hoped to actually get some revisions done, but work is insane, and we got a puppy. Between those two things I have very little energy when I get home from work. It’s annoying and I’m frustrated. I want to work on my WIP. For the first time in what feels like a long time, I legitimately want to dive back into the world I created.
I hate not having the energy to do it.
We’re in our holiday rush at work, and it means staying late, and then I come home to puppy duty, dinner, a walk, then a shower and then it’s 10:30PM and I’m ready for bed. I don’t even read physical books anymore. If it’s not an audiobook, then I don’t really read it.
That’s got to change, because I have so many October ARCs I need to read. I’ll be busy this upcoming weekend.
I digress – as per usual.
I had really wanted to have a bigger…a better update this month. I’m really going to try and get at least a couple chapters revised in October. I need to finish this damn book.
I was thinking about sharing a short scene from my WIP, but I was looking in my “Writing Projects” Folder and I stumbled across this piece that I’d started writing earlier this year in a fit on inspiration. With NaNoWriMo coming up, I need to decide what I’m going to work on. 2020 has given me some pretty good Shiny New Ideas – so I thought I’d share an Unedited short scene from this WIP I’ve labeled
2020 DYSTOPIAN VIRUS WIP
Yeah…my brain’s weird and I was definitely inspired by current events. I mentioned this WIP back in Writing Update #14 and it very well might be a contender for NaNo this year. I have quite a few ideas that I really would love to work on, but I’ll have to wait and see what strikes me when the time comes.
Before I share this – I just want to reiterate that this is Unedited, late night word vomit, written in a fit of inspiration. It’s repetitive and this is the first time I’ve opened the document since like, late March or April. So, please don’t judge too harshly.
On second thought, I’m not sure I want to know LOL. I do know that I absolutely loved this when I was writing it. I don’t know what the MC’s name is yet, so maybe if I write the rest of this for NaNo, it’ll come to me. I hope you liked this little snippet. It’s never easy for me to share my writing – especially when it’s this rough and unedited. I usually write the stories “wrong” before they’re right and this will probably end up changing a million times if I seriously continue to work on it.
I’m off to bed, but I hope your writing endeavors are going great and let me know if you’re planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year!

Thank you! and Woo! I need to decide which project I’m working on – but starting something new is always fun! I’ll be doing a NaNo centric post closer to the start where I share my username and plans – feel free to add me as a buddy then!
