Word Count Wednesday 13 Jan

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

Another zero for me. Good intentions and all that but it wasn’t to be. Hopefully next time.

Word Count Wednesday 6 Jan

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

After a bit of time off (unfortunately not writing) I’ve been back at work, only returning to my monologues at gone seven last night but I still managed a decent 1,381 words. It’ll be a mix of work work and my own novel/s so I hope to have a better count next week.

Word Count Wednesday 30 Dec

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

I’ve been… er, not sure what I’ve been as I was only out for Christmas lunch so have an overstuffed zero this week. Could do better… as they say on school reports (‘good effort’ on many of mine!).

Word Count Wednesday 23 Dec

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

Unfortunately I’ve been work working again so have another zero word count. As soon as work finishes for Christmas, I’ll be doing the final edits (back from my editor, Caroline Vincent ) on two of the upcoming Rachel Cavanagh Henry Houdini dog detective short spin-offs for release hopefully before the end of this year.

Word Count Wednesday 16 Dec

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

I’ve been work working (editing) so have a big fat zero words this week (last Wednesday to last night). I should have something for next Wednesday as I hope to finish work well before Christmas. We still have a week and a bit so I shall keep everything crossed. 🙂

Thank you!

I know this year’s not over yet but we’re nearly there. The last few months haven’t been easy for any of us. I’m one of the lucky ones who worked from home anyway… in publishing (Associate Editor for Bloodhound Books). I’ve also been busy writing so I’m conscious that I have quite a few emails stacking up.

Those of you who have signed up to my newsletter (that’s long overdue!), offered to be beta readers (thank you!), wanted to join the email critique group (I’ll contact you shortly), entered my 100-word competition, and so on.

I see the emails coming in and I keep meaning to make time to action them but here we are at a few minutes to 11pm and I know the next few days will be work work, with two novels to finish editing before Christmas so I have a few days off.

So, thank you for your patience. I will be in touch…

Word Count Wednesday 9 Dec

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

I’ve been continuing with ‘Henry Goes to the Cinema’ and have written 5,372 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). Not quite the 7,000 I was hoping for (see my 1k a day posts) but that’s okay. I had a work work deadline of yesterday so spent the weekend work working. 🙂

One ‘k’ in one day – day 5 (5 Dec)

Since NaNoWriMo finished, my aim has been to write 1,000 words a day, every day. There will be some days when it won’t happen but I hope to average it out at 7,000 a week (you’ll find out in my Word Count Wednesdays whether I achieve that or not).

After two days of inactivity (with family then work work), and therefore no update posts, I continued with ‘Henry Goes to the Cinema’, the fourth in my Rachel Cavanagh / Henry Houdini dog detective short spin-offs, and added 1,388 words so 1,460 behind. I hope to catch up tomorrow but have a deadline for a work work novel for Monday so may have to spend Tuesday doing so… not a hardship. 🙂

Do let me know how you’re getting on with your writing and if this inspires you to keep going then I’d be delighted to hear how you’re progressing.
