Word Count Wednesday: 25 May 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

A Covid-free week I’m pleased to say. Long may it continue. I’ve started a couple of prompts but nothing particularly wordworthy; a little over 500 words but I still quite like them. I was feeling a bit low (selling your house with nowhere to move to will do that) last night so a bit of therapy.

I can’t believe how quickly these weeks go and I’m sure most of you will concur.  That’s no excuse of course but other than looking for rented accommodation in my new (old) area I’m just waiting for my mum’s and my house to sell. Early days (for mine anyway) so, other than work deadlines, no excuse at all for not having a word count next week. Don’t go easy on me (as Adele didn’t sing) if I don’t. 🙂

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

Another crazy week; I ended up with a (faint) positive Covid result so I’ve been home alone, with my dog, working through my food and drink supplies. It could have meant writing but I have two novels to get back this week so I’ve been working on them. My next deadline’s June so fingers crossed I’ll have time to do some writing especially as both houses (mine and my mum’s) are up for sale so little sorting to do until I have to move.

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

It’s been a mixed bag week of working and holiday (and two funerals) so the usual zero from me but I’m back at my desk today, albeit working, with a few days at home so there could be something for next Wednesday. If not, it’s okay.

Yes, I could try harder but with my focus so elsewhere it would be quantity (and likely not even that) over quality, which is also okay but it feels like I need to get certain hurdles out of the way before I can concentrate on, and enjoy, writing. Procrastination at its finest, some might say.

Word Count Wednesday: 4 May 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

A final week of moving my belongings into storage so my house is photo-ready for going on the market, which it will officially do this week! It doesn’t mean the work is over but I’m now looking for rental property then I’m in my new area, nearer my muse and our families.

It’s been too long without writing but I’m at least one step nearer each week which is great. Hopefully soon I will have a word count to share with you but for now I enjoy revelling in yours, even if it’s a minus figure because you’ve been editing.

Word Count Wednesday: 27 April 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’m writing this early as I’ll be in sunny Dorset when this is published. A zero, as has been for the past few weeks, but I’m with my muse in one of the most beautiful counties so plenty of inspiration.

Word Count Wednesday: 20 April 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

In between work, more clearing of my house has kept me busy this week but I have my editor on standby to go through some of my existing pieces so when I do get back to writing mode it’ll be more likely editing mode, which is fine. Plus it’ll no doubt lead to actual writing. 🙂

Word Count Wednesday: 13 April 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

Another zero but the house moves are getting there. My mum’s is on the market and I’ve been selling a fair few bits of furniture from mine so there’s less to put in storage. Even though I’m only moving one county (<60km/40m) I’m not going to be selling/buying on the same day. I empathise with anyone who has to do that.

They say the top three stresses are death, moving house and divorce (not sure in which order) and I’ve had the first then two of the second to deal with in the past month so my head’s not on writing at the moment.

Parts of my brain are reminding me what pot of gold (editing existing works most likely) lies ahead when my house is ready for the world to trudge through it (or my little part of it). It’s been my cocoon for the past 23 years so I want it to gleam (although that’ll be down to my wonderful cleaner!). The day I close the door for the final time (no doubt sobbing) will be the start of my writing:work:muse (not in that order!) life.

Word Count Wednesday: 6 April 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

Another week sorting out two houses (mine and my mum’s) and meeting deadlines means no recorded word count – no surprise there – but I did add a few words to a monologue collection I’ve been building. I’m hoping once both houses are on the market (and my treasured possessions in storage) it’ll give me time to do little else but writing and my/work editing. I have a LOT written (including a 100,000-word serial novel which I call my Eric Morecambe novel; all the right words but not necessarily in the right order) but am one for creating new and leaving them to marinate while I move on to something new.

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

Another zero but several steps (fabulous estate agent √, awesome solicitor √) closer to returning to my writing. After two years with little creativity, Caroline – my lady Friday – is back on board so  I hope to have the newsletters resurrected in the next few weeks and lots of productivity thereafter. Plus I have a new ‘old’ (we’ve known each other since we were sixteen) muse to inspire me. He’s a big reader and he writes so a win/win!

Word Count Tuesday: 22 Mar 2022

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. Oh, actually it’s not quite but I have a family event tomorrow so here I am a day early. How have you been getting on?

As per last week I’ve not been doing any writing. I’ve been busy with work deadlines and ‘family arrangements’. Life will be easier in the next few days so I hope to put fingers to keyboard (I’m that kind of writer) in the very near future.
