Get along little Word Doggies

I spent yesterday working on a project for a friend. I finished at 10:00PM, and by the time I’d proofread my notes, and tailored a decent email it was midnight.

I skipped one of my regular blogging nights, but it was for a good cause. I’m off today,because it’s a holiday. It’s Columbus Day in the US, and even then most people don’t get it off.

I set aside some writing time, and used it wisely. I’d like to have done more, and there are about eight hors left to me. My brain is tired though, and it’s time to stop.

My heroine did battle with a supernatural baddie, and prevailed. This is her first experience, and there were a few mistakes made. Now she has to do battle with a “corporate” bully, and that takes a completely different skill set. I’ll save that for next time.

My thuggish anti hero is way ahead of my heroine in the race for a MacGuffin she doesn’t even know exists yet. That adds a level of tension I’m kind of digging. I’m going to leave them both for now. Like I said, my brain is tired.

I’m about to get company for several weeks in a row, so most of my fiction will be of the daydreaming phase. That isn’t a bad thing. It makes the story stronger in most cases.

Progress today is in the form of 2915 new words. Total words at 32,272. I have no deadline. I might finish by Thanksgiving, or it might take until Memorial day. I have a theory there’s going to be time available as winter takes hold.

Now I’m off to read your blogs; something else I’m behind on.

    Me too! Thats what Im doing right now… Ive got 50 odd lined up in my email, and not one word penned by yours truly today, so you arent doing too badly at all!


  2. Wait, you just commented. Count those words up. I had seven days off and managed forward momentum on two days. I got a lot done. There’s more to writing than new words, particularly when you self publish.


  3. I’m one of those who didn’t get off today, uh I mean I didn’t get today off. There’s still time to get off, if JD is cooperative. (Waggles eyebrows suggestively). 😈


  4. Woo Hoo! You got forward progress accomplished and that’s what counts! I can’t wait to see how all those characters become intertwined! 😀 Good luck with the company. If you feel about company as I do, you might need to visit the cabin a few times during their visit just to keep your sanity. 😉
