Word Count Wednesday---The Novella

Today I am SO HAPPY to tell you that I have a word count!  Woohoo! It's been a while and I wrote a thousand words this week!

As you all know, I was working on a novella that I had to put aside for the last few months. I'm back to it and really working hard.  I need to have fifteen more pages written by tomorrow, so you can imagine how excited I am to see the words finally flowing onto the page!

This novella picks up Colby and Sophia's story from Ashes, Ashes, so it's been fun to revisit them again. I had forgotten how much I loved them!  I hope you'll like this little glimpse into their happily ever after as well.  And I'll need you all to keep me accountable in finishing this project by Oct 5th. It will be a little crazy, but I think I can do it!

How did you do this week?

I didn't know what your novella was about. I can't wait to read more about Colby and Sofia. I loved them! And Colby was so distracted in Ring Around the Rosie, I figured something was up. Yay!

Wonderful job on the word count! Me? I have been writing too, but it's being split up between a couple of stories. First, my current WIP, I got in another 3,305 words. And I also started a steampunk short story to submit to my publisher's anthology that will open at the beginning of November. The anthology is entitled "The Strange Island of …" and that gave me an idea, and 657 words later, I had a healthy premise and a first page.

Steampunk? Wow, that's definitely out of my range. Good for you! Can't wait to hear more about it. :)
