Word Count Wednesday

After the craziness of yesterday, I forgot to tell you guys about a writer's event I've been invited to be a part of this weekend.

It's called "The Profitable Author Event," and it will be in Salt Lake City this Saturday January 14, 2012
from 9 am – 1 pm at the Holiday Inn Express, 3036 S. Decker Lake Drive, West Valley City, UT. They're going to cover such topics as Book Publishing Secrets, How to Self-Publish on a Shoestring, How to Make Your Book a Bestseller, Do It Yourself Tricks and Top Ten New Author Mistakes to Avoid, just to name a few.

I'm going to be on a panel, and while it costs $97 to attend, if you come as my guest, I can get you in for $30, although guest seats are limited. So email me ASAP at for the code to get you in. I'd love to see you there!

Okay, on to Word Count Wednesday. It was a slower week for me this week, I only added about 500 words, but I did get some revising done, so I'm counting it as a success. I like the shape my manuscript is taking, and I'm excited to add some more word count to it this week. I'm crossing my fingers for a nice block of writing time. Cross your fingers for me, too, okay?

How did you do on your word count this week?

I added about 4000, so it was a good week for me. Hope you get a nice block of writing time soon.

Take lots of pictures for us and post them. I can't wait to see how your panel goes.

My fingers are crossed. I did good last week. 12.5 pages, or about 2500 words. Hoping to do as well this week. =)

Debra Erfert said...

I put in 3,065 words this week. Yay! Not as good as I'd like, but I'll take it. I read too many books! Have fun at your writer's event. I'd love to go, but Salt Lake is a little too far to drive up on the spur of the moment. :)

I'm doing the first pass of my revisions (I have this rule where I can only make notes on the first pass, no changes [other than correcting typos or something]), and I hit the halfway point of my book last night! Which is awesome because it started off very slow. I'm hoping to finish with the notes tomorrow!

Oh I haven't sat down to work on my novel in over a month! Bad me. Life gets in the way sometimes.

About 300 words. Hey, it's something.
