Writing Updates & Goals
NaNoWriMo was nuts! I really struggled through the first three weeks and I was perpetually 1K behind. At some point, I pushed through and I ended up being ahead and I finished a whole day early! I can’t believe I had so much to write. So now it’s just over 60K and I’d like to get it up to 75K.
Wow, I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over. How much can I get done in December? I hope to wrap up the Throwaway Queen WIP by the end of the year. I have roughly 3-4 more chapters to go! I’m so close it’s like spitting out a loose tooth. I’ve taken a break from writing for a few days, so I need to get back into the fray and get to that “the end” point!
I also still have that goal of tweaking Destiny Seeker by adding another chapter towards the beginning, and I’d like to tweak my cover letter. If you’ve read any of my novel, please reach out to me about things you like about my work. I’d like to add your thoughts in the cover letter. I’m not sure if all of this will be done in 2017 but I just want it to be done so badly so I can approach literary agents with more confidence again.
Whitney’s Freelance Services Are Still Discounted
I announced my editing and beta reading services in July. However, I have taken off 10% of those prices for the rest of 2017! If you have a goal of being published ready by the end of the year, check out the Editing Services page to see the discounted prices and contact me if you’re interested.
If the prices are still way out of your budget, still shoot me an email. I want to help new authors and we can work something out.

What’s Coming in December?
To give you a sneak peak of what’s to come in December, here’s a quick list:
New Book Reviews: I’m so thankful for indie novels, so there will still be reviews coming. Expect a few more book reviews. Also, are you all finding these useful? I know the writers find them useful, but I wonder if you readers feel like these book reviews are helping you find new reads. Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
New Novel Descriptions: I didn’t get to this task, so I hope to get it done in December! I’ve been meaning up to update the page I have for Destiny Seeker, so I hope to revise that, as well as add a page for Throwaway Queen. I hope you’re excited to learn more about my projects.
That’s about it from us! We’ve been pretty busy and we know you have been, too. What have you been up to? Let us know and bask in your own glory in the comments section or via social media.
