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 juliecoulterbellon@gmail.com 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. =)

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.
