Word Count Wednesday & A Writing Sprint Tonight

I saw this quote and liked it, so I thought I'd pass it along:

"Every great success is an accumulation of thousands of ordinary efforts that no one sees or appreciates."- Brian Tracy

Doesn't that describe writing to a T?

I also like this one:  "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."- Thomas Edison

Well, I'm not giving up!  I had a scene just come to me this morning so that bumped up my word count a little.  I'm still counting it for this week, even though technically it should probably be next week, haha.  That puts me just over 1500 words for this week.  I know it's not much, but as I mentioned in my blog post yesterday, I've had a busy past four days!

I think I want to do a writing sprint tonight at 8 p.m.  Is there anyone around who can sprint with me?  I need to jump start this story again and get going on it.  If you can, check back here at 8 p.m. MST for the sprint post and we can check in with each other to see how many words we can get done in ONE HOUR.

How did you do with your word count this week?

Ooh...MST? I’m over here in Virginia on EST so that’s a little late for me...but I’ll give it a go! Why not? ;-) I’m at around 1100 so far this week- I got on a roll on Monday- but I know I’m going to be pretty busy the rest of the week and I’ll need to make my 3000 by Saturday night so...I’m in!

950 words this week! (ok, most of that was just yesterday, but still!)

I'm waiting for my wife to get home and I expect we'll be putting boys to bed during this hour, but I'll try to write some now and sprint with you!
