Word Count Wednesday

So, after my post yesterday I bet you can guess that I didn't do any writing at all this week.  None.  Nada.  My word count is zero.

But we've had some great times laughing together as a family.  It has been a glorious week so far.

How did you do this week?

Only about 3500 words for a short story. The good news is that I sold one of my short stories and have a second one that is on the short list for consideration.

About 200 words, but I did edit a little bit to make it tighter.

Doing some planning on my next scene so that I can do some background info dumping and advance the plot, but still keep it thrilling.

I so happy for your family togetherness. Memories are precious.

This week I've rewritten/revised/edited over 200 pages of the 1st book of a sci-fi thriller trilogy that I have targeted for the national market. My plans are to start querying it in September. I better get a move on it since I still have about 4 chapters to finish in the second novel. I need to do a synopsis for the 3rd, but it's basically written in my head. From what I've read from other authors, the 2nd and 3rd books don't need to be written before querying anyway, although a synopsis of each are be needed upon request.

I have a romance, and a mystery novel being published through Walnut Springs Press, but I'm sure they won't be interested in a sci-fi trilogy, but I need to clear it with them anyway.

Only a few words, as I'm revising. It's my first time working with an editor's notes. Good thing it's only a short story!
