Word Count Wednesday: 8 June 2022

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

Now six days until I move. As you can imagine the last week has been mostly (work and) packing so no writing but that’s okay.

It’s unlikely I’ll be moving again for at least three months (waiting for probate and someone to buy my mum’s house) so plenty of time to get chunks of writing done (keep me to that!).

I may not have much in the way of word count next Wednesday but I’m hoping it’ll be at least three figures (and not 000!).

Do leave a comment below to share your progress, successes and otherwise, and of course anything else that’s happened to you, writing related, over the past seven days.

    I’m having a creative spell, which is delightful! I have written two blogs, around four thousand words, which form the basis of first drafts of chapters in a future travel memoir.

    My blog is about giving up work to live your dream. Hubs and I did so by becoming perpetual nomads. When the author of one of the funniest road trip memoirs I have ever read announced he was giving up work to write full time, I interviewed him for my blog to help him with publicity. I’m a great believer in kindness for kindness’ sake, but needless to say, his answers are well worth reading!

    Wishing you all the best with your move and I hope you get back to writing soon. I feel so happy and satisfied that I have been able to get back to writing after a six month haitus when I needed to care for my Dad.

    I’m struggling to write at the moment now too. I’m attempting to clear out my son’s bedroom (he’s in his 30s and living in Spain) for Ukrainian refugees, but it’s proving difficult, emotionally wearing and contentious. Also we have no refugees yet. All the agencies we have contacted don’t get back to us.
    Good luck with your move. (We haven’t moved for 34 years!)

      Oh that’s tough, Rosemary. But what a lovely thing you’re doing. My brother cleared the final things from my mum’s (after she’d died) and he’s 56! It’s been a few days since you wrote this so I hope you’ve had a reply by now. They must have been swamped with kindness, which while tough on those involved, is also rewarding when things come together.
