I sat there all day. Was I picked for jury duty? Nope. Good thing I took what all writers would take; a great book, my last two chapters, and my Quickpad. I read, edited, and wrote. All in all I can’t say that it was a day wasted. Actually it was like having a free day to do what I love best. Just not in the comfort of my own home.
Time to check in with the word count for the 100x100 this week:
Last Sunday’s ending word count: 23,285
Ending word count for the week: 24,807
Total new words added this week: 1,522
Not the word count I would like but I’m still writing forward. With finding a home, packing, and moving at the end of the month as long as I’m writing I’m happy.

What's a witch to do?
Especially now—when Mac's suddenly back in her life, looking to rekindle the magic…

Thanks to everyone who left comments on their favorite authors. The coming weeks contest will have several of them. I know it’s hard to pick the fav’s when there are so many. This is a great way to learn about authors that we may not know.
Erica, you can be sure your book will be on the contest as soon as it hits the shelves. :)
As always, leave your comments today and during the week to be included in the contest.
