Word Count Wednesday

Well, I had the wind taken out of my sails a bit this week. My muse left and every word I wrote was pulled out of me like the pulling of a tooth with very long roots and it wasn't very fun. Like doing dentistry with no anesthesia type of not fun.

It also wasn't very productive. I only got 2280 words this week.

Since it's a holiday weekend I might get a bit more time to write so I'm hoping to maybe triple that for next week and really finish up JuCanWriMo with a bang. Wish me luck!

How did you do in your word count this week?

Sorry to hear that you were having difficulties! I hope your muse will come back soon with renewed energy!

After several weeks of writing-related depression, doubt, and worry, I finally recovered enough to start work on my story again, and got in 1157 words this week. I haven't written that much for a long time, so I'm kind of excited.

Two thousands words is better than none, you know. I did a bit more than you this week, and I've very excited about it. Not about writing more than you, but about my WIP. I'm loving it the more I get into it. I keep having to get up at night and write down ideas as they hit me knowing full well if I don't I'll forget them before morning.

Yay, Melanie! Keep rocking on your WIP! And remember my email address. :)

I think you all are doing well to get that many words. I think I got around five pages of mostly dialogue, which was fun. I'm trying to follow the "no editing" rule of NaNoWriMo, which is super hard for me.

Yay Melanie!

Debra, you make me laugh, "not about writing more than you." Hah!

Rebecca, that's super hard for me, too. I'm a chronic editor and it is SO hard to stop! Congrats on the five pages though.

I didn't do too well this week, but in the early hours of this morning, I suddenly realised how my story ends, so I'm happy :-)

Melanie Goldmund said...

I'll remember, Debra, and thanks again for your help so far! *g*

Sarah, that is always a good feeling!
