Are You A Two?

I can't tell you what fun it was to learn more about you all.

Thanks for taking the time to post a comment and share a little bit about yourselves. And, welcome to new pals who have joined in with this last Free Stuff Friday!

*
So, I chose our two winners with Random.org. I counted down, excluding my comments and determined our winners to be:

LT Elliott
and

SJ Duvall


Congrats, gals! Each will receive a $20 Amazon gift card. The prize comes via e mail so please contact me at tesshilmo(at)comcast(dot)net and I will respond with the code.

As for me,
I am busy working on my WIP and reached the half way mark this weekend ... wa-hoo! I also flushed out the final bit of plot that was giving me fits. If I stick to my writing goals, it will be finished by the end of the month.

How are your projects coming along??

Tess--Great job! Congratulations to your winners. :-)

Susan Fields said...

Good luck with your writing goals. March is a tough month for me with my daughter's 3-week spring break. I was hoping to be done with my second draft by the end of the month, but the end of April is looking more likely. Congrats to the winners!

Danyelle said...

Congratulations to the winners.

Good luck with your WIP. *writing cookies*
If I stay disciplined, I should be done with mine on the 22 of April. *crosses fingers*

We're 10,000 words into book 2 in the Kate Lowry series. So jealous that you're already at the half way mark!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

I spent the weekend improving my opening pages and synopsis for a grant submission. It was hard work but worth it to see how much better it got.
Congrats are reaching half-way!

Terresa said...

Sweet congrats to the winning chicas! (LT, what luck, gf!)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Half way point? Awesome!
I worked on a blurb this weekend and some outlinging.
I hope to have chapter 2 done by the end of this week.

Congratulations to the winners! I'm sitting on mine while critique partners review and am seriously considering jumping in on my next novel.

Congrats no the halfway mark, Tess! It's all down hill from here. :-)

Oklay, it's not. But we can pretend.

Scott said...

I have 1 1/2 chapters to go on my current WiP. I have a few other WiPs waiting in the wings for me to start, and a glimmer of an idea currently fermenting in my brain. Ha! Then, there's a query to write, a synopsis to write, an agent to find, and . . .

Good for you!

I'm entering a contest this week. That's my goal for right now.

Tina Laurel Lee said...

Congratulations on half-way!

It is a big week for me. Lots of secret plans being unveiled and I am working hard on a revision.

Susan R. Mills said...

Congrats on the halfway mark. That's huge.

Janna Qualman said...

Go, Tess! You're great.

I've been taking a little break from manuscript editing, but can feel it somewhere, that growing desire to get back to it. It's an itch!

Jackee said...

Congrats to the winners!

And you go get that WIP done this month. Hoorah! I'm trying, but this weekend I got behind. Still working, though!

Dominique said...

Congrats to the winners.
I'm glad you're projects are coming along.

My WIP is coming along, those it's taking longer to get places than I thought it would. My characters suddenly want to talk about their feelings and stuff like that. Don't they know I've got plans?

Solvang Sherrie said...

I'm at almost 12K on my WIP, but I've hit that point where I wonder if it really is good and all the self-doubt starts creeping in. At least since I'm in a class I have no choice but to stifle the inner critic and keep going.

Angie said...

Congrats to the winners. Good job on your WIP. I am so close to finishing mine, but the ending is taking longer than I expected it. I really hope to make it rock, though!

Elana Johnson said...

Congrats LT and SJ! Thanks to Tess for being so awesome at contests.

And I swear I'm going to start writing something new any. day. now. No, really.

Tamika: said...

Congratulations Ladies! And to you Tess on all the great progress- it makes the writing enjoyable to have a picture of where you're headed.

My self imposed deadline is lighting a fire beneath me!

Lynnette Labelle said...

The halfway mark. That's great! Congrats to you and your winners.

Congrats to the winners. I'm fighting germ warfare at my house right now so projects are on slow. I did, however, have to poke my head up over the haze and catch a few posts.

paulgreci said...

Tess, sounds like your writing is going well!!
I'm about to start a revision of my WIP. Yesterday while out xcountry skiing I had a slurry of ideas flow thru my brain. When I got home I wrote them all down. Now I need to put the ideas into action. That's what I'll be attempting this week.

Abby Annis said...

Congrats to the LT and SJ! And congrats to you for reaching half way! Good luck making your goal. :)

Amy Saia said...

Congrats on getting closer to the end! I'm still doing rewrites but getting close to finishing. Yay!

Amy Holder said...

Congrats to the winners and making great progress on your WIP! Yay!

I'm about half way through my WIP too. Not sure if I'll finish by the end of the month like your goal, but I'll keep my fingers crossed (for both of us)!

BTW - I have a creative writing award waiting for you at my blog if you'd like to check it out. :)

Carrie Harris said...

Woo hoo! Congrats to all!

I just got my edit letter, so you can guess what I've been doing. :)

L.T. Elliot said...

I won? Yay! That's so killer! Thank you so much, Tess. =D

My project is inching along but it's progress!

DL Hammons said...

Congrats Gals!! Full steam ahead Tess...halfway home.

Tess said...

LT: Yes, you won !

And, thanks for the encouragement, guys! Four more pages down today .. woot! woot!

Mary Campbell said...

I'm a little over halfway through my WIP, but I've been there for a while. So hard to stay on task. congrats to the winners.

MG Higgins said...

Congrats on your progress! I'm finishing a rewrite and itching to start something new. A new idea just came to me over the weekend. Woohoo!

Anita said...

I'm taking a break from fiction until after spring vacation...I'm daydreaming a lot, though, and that's almost like writing.
