How goes it?
As I mentioned last month, I'm doing things backwards right now. I'm in the middle of a major rewrite on King's War (Kinsman Chronicles, book three), and I'm cutting words. My editor would like me to cut at least 50,000 words from my 194,000-word story.
But I've been working very hard, chip-chip-chipping away at this beast. I've cut just over 15,000 words so far and I still have a ways to go. I'm also at the Oregon Christian Writers' Conference this week (early bird class by Michael Hauge and evening keynotes by Frank Peretti!), so I'm sneaking away each day to make sure I get in my WORD-CUT-WAR time.
What's a word war?
How does it work?
You can also start mini word wars in the comments section of this blog, or on the Go Teen Writers Community Facebook group. (If you apply to join, leave me a comment on the blog so I can get you approved.)
The goal is to buckle down and focus on our manuscripts whenever we can, make good use of our writing time, and encourage each other as we write. Hopefully you'll be meeting new writers and deepening friendships as the war goes on!
How long does it last?
This word war began yesterday and will end Friday night. It's a come-and-go, write-when-you-can style of war, so it's never too late to join, and you don't have to participate every day.
