Word Count Wednesday

Well, it's a good thing I'm not doing NaNo because in just this past week I did a presentation at a writer's conference, taught Gospel Doctrine, sewed all my son's cub scout awards on an Arrow of Light award, launched a new book, took all the kids and myself to the optometrist for a checkup, made sure the kids were fed, dressed, and where they needed to be with basketball, earning merit badges, piano lessons, dance lessons, etc., and today I am getting ready for my dad's visit. (It's okay to lie down on the couch to visit, right?) Thank goodness he is bringing a care package of Canadian chocolate with him from my mom because a visit from my dad and good chocolate always helps everything.

So long story short, my word count was zero this week.  And it probably will be zero for a few days yet. That's okay, though, because family always comes first for me and my novella isn't going anywhere.  I won't be here for a word sprint tonight, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it).  I'll be hiding from my kids to eat amazing chocolate all by myself. (And probably visiting with my dad. Maybe at the same time. Ha!)   

How did you do this week?

My nano goal is 2000 words a day except Sat and Sun. I did great this week until today. I was too wound up to write today because I signed a contract! My middle grade fantasy is tentatively scheduled for June of next year. I'll have to make up the word count on Sat.

Enjoy visiting with your dad and your chocolate. You've got me curious about Canadian chocolate now.

My dad is visiting me, as well, and I have written no words this week. I have had very few minutes to myself and I guess that's ok. =)

Hope you have a great visit with your dad, Julie!
