Word Count Wednesday

I'm making slow but sure progress on my novella.  I'm doing a bit of research this week on my settings and a few government jobs.  Is that enough of a teaser?

I have to say I do love research. I learn so many new things!  Sometimes it's hard to pull back and get to writing.  It's like that Lay's commercial where it says "you can't eat just one."  My thing is, you can't just research one thing! You've got to get all those details completely documented and follow where the next trail leads.  So, I'm trying to be more careful of my writing/research balance.

How did you do this week?

I think I remember you doing a lot of "research" on Ring Around the Rosie before you actually started that, too, procrastinating quite a long time.

I might've been able to write a hundred words this week, but I got the kitchen painted!

I know, I know, *hangs head* I'm really working on my research addiction! :)

Glad to hear about your kitchen!
