Word Count Wednesday

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

I have the not terribly grand total of 1,492 words this past week – in theory last Wednesday to last night but actually all yesterday – and all from my daily ditties.

Being distracted, as many are, I’m not currently working on any longer projects as I (and I know how lucky I am) still have my day job (editing for Bloodhound Books).

With everyone staying indoors, more people than ever, it seems, are reading which is a great thing for the industry I’m in.

I’d love to sell more books than I do (my assistant Caroline and I are working on that!) but I have noticed more people are signing up to my online courses, albeit mostly the free ones but that’s still great.

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

I’ve been doing my daily 300+ words, mostly on flash fiction, but also on longer works in progress and have written 3,274 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). They were all flash fictions this week as I usually need chunks of time to work on novels but I’m hoping to get more done in the next few days.

BeaconLit Third Year 500-word comp Round 6 – Feb 2020 winners announced

Drum roll please… BeaconLit’s February winners are… (my 100-word comp results will be announced within the next twenty-four hours)

BeaconLit

BeaconLit Third Year 500-word comp Round 6 – February 2020 winners announced

We are delighted to announce the top three stories from February’s entries are (in alphabetical order):

  • Fourteen Again
  • In Detention Again
  • Take On Me

The theme for February was ‘fourteen again’. The three top stories will now go through to the final judging and the top ten prize-winning authors (not necessarily the same as the top ten stories as no author can win more than one prize) will be announced at the 2020 BeaconLit literary festival on Saturday 11th July. As with most months, there were more than three stories that could have made the top three but those that did were either closer to the theme or stronger (provoked more of a reaction after reading) so don’t be disheartened if yours hasn’t been mentioned.

If your story for this month isn’t listed in the above three, you are…

I’ve been doing my daily 300+ words, mostly on flash fiction, but also on longer works in progress and have written 6,511 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). 4,454 was from writing a different story (some finished, most not) every day and 2,057 from a new novel, the idea for which I got while out walking my dog last week, as often happens.
