Word Count Wednesday

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

I’ve been continuing with a shorts project (monologues actually) albeit only last night so a mere 1,369 words but still more than a NaNo day so that’s okay.

Speaking of which, I’ll probably start planning for NaNoWriMo this weekend, although I’ll be adding to a couple novels I’ve already started which isn’t technically cheating (I don’t think). As long as I write 50,000 words, right?

I’m more of a pantser than a planner (what are you?) but I do think I need some kind of structure to ensure I get the words down. I’ve not been disciplined enough recently.

I’ve been cracking on with this themed short story collection and have written 2,009 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night)… actually yesterday afternoon so that’s not bad at all. A little down on last week but more than a NaNoWriMo day. Let me know if you’re doing that this year. I will be with novels so these stories are my warm-up.

I’ve put the Henry Short Stories on hold for a while as NaNoWriMo is looming so I’ll be concentrating on my longer projects (standalone psychological novels). Another busy week so only got to writing yesterday morning before I had to go back to work work after lunch. Knowing I only had a morning (sort of*), I returned to a short story collection and put down 2,190 words (*I did do a bit more last thing). Not as many as I’d have liked (or should have done) but enjoyable ones, which are the best kind. Plus it’s more than the equivalent of NaNo’s 1,667 in less than one day so certainly forgivable.

I’ve been back with the second Henry Short Stories, albeit only yesterday evening so have a measly 1,227 words but not bad for a few hours. Almost a NaNoWriMo day’s worth. Speaking of which, that’s only just over a month away. Are you doing it this year? I probably will as I have two standalone psych thrillers to finish.

I had planned to do more to ‘Henry Goes to the Barbecue’, the second Henry Short Story, but I’ve been distracted by a new idea for a collection (the first of several, I’m hoping). Actually I’ve been distracted by other things (including Facebook Marketplace!) so have a mere 864 words written this past week (Wednesday to last night) but I didn’t start those until late yesterday afternoon so two day’s worth of the ‘300 words a day will get you 109,500 in a year’ so not bad. Will do better (I hope!) next week. 🙂

I have another zero this week but mostly due to deadlines (meaning I work worked over the weekend) but hopeful of something by next Wednesday!
