Word Count Wednesday

Well, I went on a little getaway with my husband, so my word count was zero.  I didn't even have any plot ideas or anything.  But I did have a great time on my mini-vacation and I really needed that.

How did you do this week?

Yay for vacations! I went to a conference, so no word count for me, either. I got to see my older son and his beautiful wife up in Draper (near Provo), and they made me breakfast in bed on Mother's Day, and I didn't have to clean a dish for the whole week. Oh, so wonderful!

Okay, back to work!

I guess now we know why you missed Castle. =)

I'm happy to report that I did do some writing, but I don't have a count, because I was more focused on working than on number of words. I did advance a page towards my current goal of 100. (92!)

This chapter is going to need some heavy revising after I'm done, though. It's sort of a background info / relationship building moment, but I think it might benefit from adding a little more tension. (Bonus: used the word Zombie.)

Debra Erfert said...

Yay, Jon! Not only for nearing that 100 page mark, but for using Zombie in a serious sentence. Wow!

Jon Spell said...

Well, I don't know if I'd call it a serious sentence... more like comic relief. =)

Man, when I woke up yesterday, I felt like a zombie. Shuffled out of bed, moaning, incoherent. Probably smelled bad, too. Don't ask my wife. ;)

Yay, Jon for getting work done.

Debra, I'm with you on not doing dishes for a week. Yay!
