I'm still working on my historical. I've got the basic story down; now I'm filling it in and working on the transitions that will put the puzzle of my manuscript together. Am I winning? It doesn't feel like it yet. Ask me again in another week.
The good news is I'm pretty motivated to finish. I have several novellas and other projects I want to work on the rest of the year.
Two of my coworkers and I are encouraging each other to write. We bring a little something to share with each other every day. This is nice. I'm the only romance writer; the others are writing historical fiction and fantasy. Still, sharing our work keeps us writing.
