Word Count Wednesday: 29 Mar 2023

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

Another week of house sorting (seriously, how much can one woman and her dog own?), keeping an eye on my elderly aunt and uncle (91 and 80 respectively), and work work. An interesting era for me as I switch back from working almost solely for one publisher to working directly with authors again, which is the best part of freelancing.

I’ve never really been a red tape/rules kind of person but there’s now even more of an emphasis to get a book the best it can be*, knowing that in most cases there won’t be a proofreader between me and publication. *It’s my mantra anyway but it was always a safety net, although a book’s likely to be closer to how I left it when it comes to publication which appeals to the control freak (I’m actually nice really!) side of me.

I also have my eye on writing short stories (my first love) for competitions. I’m not ready yet but have the Writing Mag’s latest booklet next to my diary on my desk so primed for when I have time.

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.

    Ah, how quickly doth the Wednesday come around…
    I thought I was cruisin’, as my notes for this week’s blog post looked like they didn’t need too much work, but there’s always so much refining and research and interesting facts to add.
    Then, I got distracted by SECRET FILMING about van life in The Peak District. I could tell you what it was for, but then I would have to shoot you.
    Then our Beast was on show in Shaftesbury, we visited a friend in Taunton, and now we’re back in Bournemouth for veterinary and medical admin. It all takes time when your top speed is 45 mph.
    Word count 1800, but needs work. 🙂

      They do, don’t they. Sounds like you had a five-minutes-turned-into-two-hours job. I have a house of those. So glad you didn’t tell me – I’m rubbish at keeping secrets. I’d love a camper… one day.
