Word Count Wednesday

Well, as you all know, I'm neck deep in final edits, but I did think of a scene to add for Bart so that will bring up my word count by a few hundred words for sure.  (Poor Bart.  He's in trouble.)

Anyway, I will be doing a sprint tonight, not for word count per se, but because it motivates me to sit in my chair and do some work.  Plus, I have a babysitter for that hour and I don't want to waste it.  So, if you can come, all the better for me! As always 8 p.m. MST.

How did you do this week?

My new WIP is about 1/4 done. I love how middle grade is short. I'm not sure if I'll make the sprint tonight. It's pack meeting. My son is getting his Wolf. :)

I can't promise anything because I've been working late nights for the past month or so, plus I'm kind of stuck. Thinking about putting a placeholder (And then a miracle occurs) so that I can move on with the story.

And then I realized there's ANOTHER NaNoWriMo loooooming on the horizon in six weeks. Augh! Now what?!?

I did pretty well. Fifteen pages maybe. I'm impressed with how fast you've been writing lately.

I just set my alarm, hopefully it will help me remember to join your sprint tonight. ;D

I wrote about 1000 words on "Becoming Wildcreek", my historical romance, this week.

Also, I woke up from a very vivid dream around midnight Thursday, I think, and I had to get up and write down that scene before I forgot it. It'd intrigued me so much that I knew I needed to write a story around it. I've titled it "Deceptions" and have about 1,212 words in the form of an outline and a solid opening. It's a police suspense/thriller. Julie, you must've inspired me! I'll send it in to First Page Friday as soon as I finesse it a little more.

Lets see...I also (kinda) outlined the last 4 chapters of a paranormal thriller that I've been avoiding for the past year, entitled "Window of Death" -- book 2 of a trilogy.

So in total I've written 2,642 words! Not humungous, but its something.

Change one letter in your title, and you've got a subtitle for Relative Evil : Widow of Death. ;)

Jon, I've missed you!
