Before we begin, I want to give a shout out and big thank you to 1WriteWay over at http://1writeway.com/ (make sure to check out her blog!), who tagged me in this meme!

1. What is the name of your current WIP?

Well, I’m working on several different writing projects right now, but for this WIP, we’ll focus on this title: Reyna (it’s a working title, ladies and gentlemen).

I’m PLANNING (ha, emphases planning) on completing a trilogy: The Fall Of Amrynth Trilogy, with Reyna as Book 1.

2. Ready to do a cover reveal?

Let me put this bluntly (and unprofessionally).

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I am no where NEAR cover-reveal time. I’m in drafting time, baby.

3. How many words are you into it?

Only about 6,500 words. Not much.

4. Goal word count by the end of the week?

End of the week? Can I re-write that question?

        REWRITE: Goal word count by the end of the year?

40,000!

5. Goal word count for the entire manuscript?

Oh, well.

40,000.

(I feel so unprofessional right now.)

(Probably because I am.)

(Alrighty then, back to the questions.)

6. What genre does your work in progress fall within?

Reyna falls within Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre. It’s really more fantastical than scientific, though.

7. When would you *like* to publish this project?

Before I die.

8. Go to page 5 of your manuscript and pick a sentence at random to share with us!

“Dashed baker. The plan was to make a quiet escape, not to make a show of throwing pastries around.”

9. Will this WIP turn into a series book?

Yes! A trilogy, as said above.

10. What has been the hardest challenge in working on this WIP?

Actually writing out the first draft and believing that I can do this. This is my first *real* attempt at writing a full-length book. It’s been one learning experience after another!

11. What has been your favorite part of working on this WIP?

LEARNING and CONNECTING with other authors; with those who have gone through this before for and succeeded, and with those who are going through the same (mis)adventures I am. Also, I just love the fact that I get to write something I love thinking, planning, and dreaming about.

12. Any special treat planned for when you finish the final draft of your WIP?

I’ll be holding a private dance party. Then I’ll continue the celebration by working on the next book.

13. Tag three people to complete this WIP meme!
