Day 3

What's your word count?


  1. This morning I revised Chapter 3 while DS was in camp, and then when he went to bed I revised chapters 4 and 5.

    Right now I'm doing my best to remove the things that aren't supposed to be in the mss, and then I'll have to go back through and add the stuff that's missing. It's not going to be easy, but I want to have the whole thing done by the 15th to get back to my agent. Then I can focus on writing a novella.

    Kinda bummed I won't get to write 2 novellas this month like I planned, but I have to do this now while the iron is hot!

  2. Forgot to check in last night. Wrote 1015 and then had to rework it this evening. Cut a bit while changing some POV but somehow ended up with 50 words more than I started with. Basically, tonight is a bust.

    I'm going to try to find time to write at work tomorrow since I need at least 3K tomorrow to get back on track to hit 40K.

    Good job on all that editing.

  3. Revisions are hard, so many places to make sure you've got everything that needs to come out, out, and figure where to add. I'm in a good spot - at the last 2 chapters, and I basically just need to flesh them out. I have two decisions to make, and I'm fiddling with those.

    Only added about 400 words today, but rearranged and removed lots of stuff - almost 20 pages worth. And sent all but the last two chapters to a CP for a read-through. I'm right on target with the plans for this book, though, which I'm really pleased about and didn't think I'd manage to accomplish.

  4. 1,063 for the day. Monday I finished polishing 50 pages for the Golden Rose contest and Tuesday my in-laws descended but I did a couple hundred words handwritten while franticly cleaning. They're in town for a week, but I'm going to keep going, even at a snails pace.

  5. I forgot to put in my WC it was 5099

    :D Great WC everyone!
