Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?
Being housebound, other than a trip to see the latest Minions movie (which we loved), has its advantages. I had deadlines coming up which meant I was almost entirely confined to the bedroom which meant quiet, which meant writing when I wasn’t working (editing). So by the close of Friday (10.22pm) I had just over 4,000 words written!
T being a cricket fan, I had already planned to work over the weekend (he was doing a 12-hour shift anyway Sunday daytime) but hoped for some writing time at some point. That said, Saturday was a bit of a write-off as I was working when not sleeping (thanks, ankle!) but Sunday was better and it meant I got a work book back a week early.
Monday again was a mix of sleep and work so no writing but I hoped to get a book back (due Wednesday) on Tuesday with a bit of writing time at the end. And I did but not until 8.30pm. T was working until 11pm so I thought I’d see how much I’d get done before he got home (or I fell asleep!). Thanks to a flat tyre T was late back but I’d already stopped at nearly 11.30 with the grand sum, for the week, of 6,602!
I’m really liking the story (just over 14k – going off to my editor as a swap for a 17k of his) so while I can’t guarantee the same word count next week, especially as I’m due back to hospital for an operation today (Wed) or Thursday, which will no doubt dent my progress, it doesn’t mean I can’t think about what happens next.
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.
