Progress Report

Novel: Into the Flames

Publication Date: March 2012

Publishers: Consortium Books

Author: Yours Truly (Jessie E.)

Progress: Writing the second draft

Word Count: 45,500. I plan to have the final draft at around 60k.

Other: I finally put in the chapters. So now I can tell you with pride that I am in chapter nine. I think there will be about thirteen in all.

My current favorite place to write is on the front porch with my shiny new beach chair.

    I’m on Chapter Six so far, and loving it.

      Aaron, do you want to look over that sentence again and see if there’s anything wrong with it (think of this as a practical learning exercise)? But also, thanks so much for saying nice things. As my publisher, your opinion matters greatly to me.

    I hang my head in shame. You’ve appropriately rebuked me for expressing my approval.

    A seat belt! Who would have thought it on a beach chair. Handy for the inebriated beach partier.

      Uh, I have no idea what that strap thing is. That’s not the real beach chair I have. Mine is much cooler.

  4. Yay! Congrats, Jessie, on the start of Draft 2! Also, I might need to acquire a beach chair. Since I’m about to acquire a porch on which to place one. : )

      Thanks, Courtney! I highly recommend a beach chair. Or at least two patio chairs so you can prop your feet up in the extra one 🙂 Yay for patios!
