WiP Wednesday

I haven't talked much about my current project, mainly because I've been busy working on it.

I have started to get into a swing of things in regards to the characters and really living through the main characters eyes. There have been a few twists and turns along the way, but they have worked out better than I anticipated.

The only thing that is happening to me right now is I'm in the second act of the book and things are happening and things are generating conflict and all that good stuff, but I feel in my first draft that the pace is sort of up and down when it should be pedal to the metal.

I know it will get fixed in the rewrite and will smooth itself out during the many drafts that are to come, but right now it has me feeling antsy, like it might not work itself out. Have you ever felt that way? Felt like the second act in the story, where all the cool things are happening, is sort of up and down? How did you handle it? I know what I'm going to do, and that is continue along the course and relook at the couple of scenes that need to be tightened up. I'm not worried in the least, but thought that it would be interesting to see how you guys work out the second act.


  1. Yeah, first drafts can get kind of wonky. The middle is touch and go sometimes, LOL! Good luck!

  2. Thank you. How is your current project coming along?
