Word Count Wednesday

I'm drafting away like a good little writer.  It's been a good week for me.  At least 4000 words.  (Considering it's summer, all the kids home, yada yada, that's a good count.)  The thing I like about drafting is even though I've outlined, the story is taking a twisty direction and I like where it's going.  Bart is a very gray character with a past, so I like the discovery part of it.  And my heroine?  Yeah, love her so far.  We'll see how long the good feelings last.  Usually by revisions, I hate them.  Haha.

How did you do this week?  Doing anything fun for the summer?  Writing every day?

Hi Julie,

I'm trying to get back into writing on my WIP every day. I have a book coming out in August, so the editing is done. YAY! I think I need to hunker down now and set some goals--a little marketing and a lot of drafting. I know I can get a lot done this summer if I discipline myself.

The hardest thing is disciplining myself. Maybe I need to do a blog series on writing in the summertime or something. :)

A blog series on writing would be a great idea, Julie!

Congratulations on your book release this summer, Rebecca!

No word count for me, and I'm getting a little anxious about not writing anything.

Thanks, Debra.

I like the idea of a series on writing in the summertime, Julie.
