Progress during April

Chapters 6 and 7 ended up being longer than I anticipated, but now I don't feel so bad for them taking so long. I've tweaked my technique over the past two weeks and my writing speed has already shot up. It turns out that the public library is not only a good place to read, but to write; I've also tried switching to daytime hours and using break-time at work. I'm focusing on just getting the story down on paper (the 'RAW' version); there won't be any more 'BETA' versions, since they've already fulfilled their purpose (getting other people's opinions on whether or not I can write) and since they require time to go back and 'polish' the RAW draft.

Here's the writing timeline as it stands now:
October '07: Started writing
December: Announced that I'm 'writing something of the science fantasy persuasion', first BETA release to 1 person
Late January: Second BETA release (of chapters 1-3) to 4 people
February: Read some more 'how to write' stuff and edited the first 2 sections of chapter 1, upgrading them to First Draft... but I decide not to continue
March: Third BETA release (of chapters 1-5 or 4-5) to 5 people; first progress report on EG
April: Tweaked my writing technique; Final BETA release w/ new chapters (1-7 or 6-7) to 5 people
June: Hope to be done with 'middle' of book: through chapter 11
September: Hope to have entire story down on paper (as RAW draft)
Sep - Oct: Hope to have chapters 1-7 upped to First Drafts, new previews for BETA testers
October: Everything in First Draft; Beginning of Second Draft; BETA testers get to see how it ends ;-)
December '08: Hope to finish Second Draft and most of my story-secrecy falls away: more BETA testers, goodies posted on EG, the beginning of the publishing process!

I hope to have a page set up on EG soon for this project. Of course, I can only put so much on it for now, but I think it'll be worth the wait.
