Work in Progress Joy
is a hashtag used during “A month-long celebration of our works in progress.” In the months WIPjoy happens, a prompt or question is given for each day. Writers answer each day’s “challenge” on whatever social media platform they choose. Work in Progress Joy.
Twitter is the most popular, and it adds some difficulty. You have to answer each prompt in under 140 characters, though images and videos can be used. It’s a fun way to interact with other writers and motivate yourself to keep working away at that manuscript!
Now, with the explanation is out of the way…
Here is my week one of #WIPjoy:
Day 1: Tell us about your WIP!
Dieon used to lead his clan. Now he must protect them from himself…and from the demon who possessed him.
Day 2: What stage are you at with this project?
My manuscript is about to be sent off for round #2 of professional edits, then it’s off to submissions!
Day 3: Describe your WIP with five verbs.
…This actually sums up main plot points…
Day 4: What emotions do you evoke with your setting?
A desert that shifts from drought to flooding, hope to despair. A spirit realm that is beautiful but broken.
Day 5: Share a line with a detail about your protagonists past.
My anti-hero, aka protagonist #2. You hate him, you learn to love him. (Well, I do anyway) ;)
Day 6: What does your antagonist love deeply?
My antagonist loves complements and praise. She slyly manipulates others so she looks the best. She enjoys being malicious.
Day 7: Which two characters have the most interesting history?
Two MCs are from rival tribes in a recent war. And they’re the only ones who don’t care. They have a curse to worry about.
I hope you enjoyed this small look into my WIP! Are you participating in #WIPjoy?
