Word Count Wednesday 22 Sep

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

I’ve been bad (busy) again and have written a mere 323 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night, actually all Monday morning). Mornings are definitely best for me but it’s a bit of a juggle to find a chunk of time. My monologues are a good distraction. Hopefully I’ll get back to the collaborative project when non-work complications ease.

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

Another crazy week and I was expecting to have a zero but I made myself sit at my desk at  9.45pm last night and write something. I started with the collaboration project but 114 words later ran out of steam. I’m better at novels when I have a chunk of time. So I went back to ye olde faithful, the monologues, and have the semi-shabby sum of 704 words total this past week (‘last Wednesday to last night’… all last night).

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

I have been writing, kind of, and have the grand sum of 608 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night), all the collaboration project. And all good intentions to do more but hey. Better than the previous few zeros. I’ll try to do more, or at least the same, for next time.

It’s official; I don’t like Tuesdays. I guess they’re not as bad as Mondays if you work a standard week but they come around far too quickly as they mean I should have done some writing prior to WCW. Have I? Erm… I’ll let my silence answer that. Next week, I promise!

Another zero for me, unfortunately. I had good intentions but a few days away (my notebook came with me but I spent the entire time walking) and it took me longer than planned to get out of the holiday frame of mind. A poor excuse but there it is.

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

I’m writing this Tuesday morning so work and a mini-break (yay!) has meant a zero this past week (last Wednesday to last night) but it’s okay as I’m off to the coast now with two notebooks and printouts of the ‘story so far’. Even if I don’t write while I’m away (I’m hoping for a few hundred words thought) I’ll be so refreshed when I get home that I’ll be cracking on with the PI novel.

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

I’ve been busy… writing(!) and have 3,168 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). It turns out it’s no good working, and all the other day-to-day stuff, then writing in the evening. It simply doesn’t happen.

So I’ve gone back to mornings. That, and, I’ve taken over – for now – writing our collaborative Amazon Vella Private Eye project.

My partner in crime (on paper) and I have been suffering from a lack of motivation when it comes to writing. We’re both editors, for different publishers, so we’re less motivated than some to turn to writing/reading when the day job clock’s off. For now, I’ll be doing the writing then he’ll be doing the editing plus reworking and rewording the husband’s parts into his ‘voice’.

We’re eleven chapters in now with 9,000 words so cracking on. Each book is going to be a separate case while we get to know our main characters, and we’re aiming for 40,000 words a book so nearly a quarter of the way through. 🙂

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

I’ve been struggling with motivation this week, and been busy, so have a zero word count this past week (last Wednesday to last night). I can’t promise anything for next week but fingers crossed…
