Writing Can Be Murder

Sharing a Work In Progress

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 9:21 am

I’ve been having a lot of conversations about various WIPs lately. 

I just read a friend’s sci-fi erotica WIP. It’s great, really great, but there was a MAJOR problem with what she sent me. It’s her WIP. It’s not finished yet. I’m dying to know what happens next and I’m going to have to wait. This is the pitfall of reading WIPs. (To be fair, I ASKED to read it, so my misery is my own damn fault!)

 I’ve also been reading the copious notes of a fantasy novel written by another friend and I’m getting antsy about reading her story too. I feel like I know the characters and their story. I just want to read it already!

Lastly, I’ve got to apologize to my DH and the friend who have read my WIP. I now understand why you’re so frustrated waiting for more pages. Sorry!

  1. Yep. You asked for this torment. Trust me, I wish I’d had the whole thing done. Chell Perry used to do this to us all the time over at my first crit group. She’d leave us begging for more all the time.
