Word Count Wednesday: 22 June 2022

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

I had high hopes for this week, being all settled in but two viewings (actually the same person but they didn’t show for the first one!) meant two gettings of the house ready – as there’d been time in between – and a minor disaster (plumbing problems leading to water coming through into the hall from the bathroom above it) and two work deadlines meant I finished the latter late last night.

I’ve treated myself to a Tassimo (other coffee machines are available) which thankfully produces other delights than coffee as I’m not a fan. I know! I’d like to be but mixed ones (especially those with chocolate) are a good introduction so I’m hoping this new gadget will help. Therefore, with work done and the next deadline over two weeks away, my hopes can still flutter overhead reminding me that part of my move south was for a better quality of life (more writing). I’ll let you know next Wednesday. That said, I am editing a novel I’d written ages ago so it might be a minus figure but that’s okay. 🙂

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.

    Yikes! Sounds like it’s been all action.
    The travel journal is just about up to date and the blog writing is catching up – I’m managing to stay a week ahead, which is just about head-above-water territory and about 1500 highly polished words per week!
    Editing the first draft of book 6 is on hold, although since it is a travel memoir, I have ordered the maps, which feels like progress!

      That’s brilliant. I say to my students that 300 words a day is over 100,000 words a year which is very sobering. To have them highly polished is certainly an achievement and the maps sound very inspiring… plus place names make for great characters.
