Friday Fess-Up: September 14th.

Happy Friday Everyone! We Made it!!

So, as I mentioned earlier, I am making a serious push to get to the end of the First Draft of my Current Project.

By way of keeping myself honest, I am going to use this segment of the blog to show you all how I am doing week by week.

So here’s how this week broke down. I begin the week on Saturday, because that was where the first of the month fell.


Saturday: Word count: 1446 words. All in one sitting. Try not to do that, we’re really not built to sit for that long a stretch.

Sunday: Word count: 1028 words.

Monday: Word count: 1113 words. You’d think that after a week so far of doing this, it would start to get easier. Not so much yet.

Tuesday: Word Count: 1094.

Wednesday: Word count: 1766. I have reached a point in my manuscript where I can start pulling stuff out of the “Muse Droppings” folder and put it back in the manuscript. At first, it felt like I was cheating, but then I remembered that I *Did* actually write those words. They just didn’t fit at the time.

Thursday: Word count: 1441. I am starting to think that this story may be longer than 100 thousand words.

Friday (today): Word count: 2442. Big chunk of previously written work that fit here. I’ll have to go through and edit it because some parts have gotten old and crusty.

Not much of a sleep deprived week. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still behind and I need to work on that, but it was better than last week.

Anyway, what was the total of all that numbering and wording, you ask?

Let me check…*mumbles, maths*…Ok!

Total word count for the week: 10,330!

Oh, and I still managed to put up the usual blog posts, which I am not counting as writing – and I’m organizing another blog tour which will be coming to a blog near you in October.  You’ll want to stay tuned for that.

Not too bad, if I do say so myself.  Next Friday will tell if I was able to keep the pace.


Be sure to stop by on Sunday for the regular blog post.

Be safe Y’All.
