Word Count Wednesday 14 Apr

Morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

I’ve been good and have written 1,002 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night, actually Sunday morning). Hoorah!

The 1,000 was the result of a prompt that an editor/writer friend and I are doing as a writeathon – c.1,000 words every week. The other two is the start of next Sunday’s – different prompts each week.

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

After a not-bad result last week I’m back to zero. I ended up taking the Easter weekend off from any kind of work but for this Sunday my friend and I will be swapping the pieces we wrote on our first weekend and continuing the other person’s story(!) so I’ll let you know how we got on.

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

I’m delighted to say that I have been writing! A friend and I have started a Sunday morning writeathon where we aim to write 1,000+ words and we did, albeit a mere 54 over that for me. He’s also an editor so we’ve swapped and critiqued each other’s, and we’re still speaking to each other. So I hope to have something around that cliched ball park if not more in future weeks.

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again and yes, another zero. But…

I have a plan. A cunning plan, Blackadder. I have a new someone in my life who is also a writer (and whose day job is editing for a publisher!) so we’re going to have Sunday writeathons where we spend the morning writing then swap masterpieces which we edit. He has the same problem; where he’s felt uninspired to write so we’re making each other do so. I’ll let you know next Wednesday how we got on… and if we’re still speaking to each other. 🙂

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

No surprise, I’m sure, that I have another zero this week. I’m optimistic – watch this space – that this will change, for the better, in the next few weeks. 🙂

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

It’ll come as no surprise that it’s another zero this week. Procrastination at its finest. I’ve had lodgers (paying housemates) on and off for many years  and the last one left late last year. I’ve been getting the house how I want it (new-to-me furniture). Fun but so not productive. And of course, I still have the day job so… Fingers crossed for next week. Or they would be if they weren’t so busy. 🙂
