Before I check in this week there’s a couple of things I wanted to tell you.
One – if you are not all ready checking out Erica’s blog she is did some great mini All about conference blogs last week. I can’t wait to read this weeks blogs. If this is not one of your daily reads you should add her to your list.
Second – On Friday there will be a give away here. You’ll have to come back to find out what it’s going to be and how you can win it. (Comments, always comments).
Okay now for the check in.
Monday morning. Time to check in with this past weeks word count for the 100 words – 100 days.
It’s been a crazy busy week for me. Between the day job which started on Sunday celebrating its 30-year (big party all month long) and getting ready for Nationals I’ve not had the extra time that I would like for my writing.
Does that mean I fell off the wagon and didn’t do at least my 100 words? Nope. The wagon is still rolling. Not quite as fast as I would like it to be and there are a few bumps in the road but on she rolls.
Thanks to my muse (Seren from Serendipity) words are coming even when I only have a small amount of time to sit down in the front of the computer. Yep, Seren is staying with me. In fact she’s taken me on a couple of turns in the road that I didn’t expect. She very much likes to explore the area when we’re traveling together. Most times on her side road trip we find things that totally changed my character interviews (a different blog all together.)
This past week I wrote several new scenes and revised several chapters. It wasn’t until I was in chapter 7 that Seren decided to tell me that Mallory’s parents died when she was young. I didn’t know that. It makes so much sense now but I didn’t know that in the beginning. So changes had to happen. You know what it makes the story line tighter. What’s happening now works better. No, I didn’t go back and do a bloody death scene for her parents. They just died. It’s more referenced then anything thing.
Okay enough about that. My word count goes from Monday to Sunday on here. In other words the count does not include any words that I’ll write today.
Here are this past week’s totals:
Last Sunday’s ending word count: 6872
Ending word count for the week: 10,414
Total new words added this week: 3542
Oh and just for fun blog words this past week: 1340
I had a guest blogger on Tuesday so those words are not in this total.
Several on my TARA Book challenge loop are doing this for two books at the same time. Since I do have the romantic suspense as well I’m thinking about doing the double as well. I’m going to try it anyway this week. I’ll let you know on next weeks check in if it worked for me.
So how about you? Are you still writing at least 100 words each day? Is getting ready for Nationals getting in the way? Check in and let us know how you’re doing. Here we’ll cheer with each success and encourage all who need it. There are no wrong or right answers only friends helping friends.
As always I send writing wishes and plotting dreams,
