No writing today…

Standard

Hi everyone!

Well, I didn’t write any narrative today, but I did work on refining my blurb and working towards a good cover design for Submerge. I didn’t expect the things that came after signing a contract to be so tricky, but then again I’ve had much less practice with them than with writing novels. As with anything, you start off rubbish and learn as you repeat the process and try, try again – especially with excellent people to guide you.

That said, I’m wiped, so I’m off to bed now.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Life is a rollercoaster

…and so are my word counts, at the m

oment!

I’ve been really tired all day, so hopefully (weather and kittens permitting) I can get a good night’s sleep tonight and do better tomorrow.

Total written today: 159 words.

Better!

Standard

Hi everyone,

Tonight I managed to knock out a thousand words, which I’m pretty happy about. I’m still at the start of the BH2 redraft, but I’m already feeling better about it than I did about the original. Now, however, I am exhausted and it’s time for bed.

Total written today: 1064 words.

August total so far: 2672 words.

Another slow day

Standard

Hi, everyone!

Well, I got some writing done today. I was hoping to make up for the last couple of days, but due to a massive headache (and a severe Hitman: Absolution problem) I only just made today’s target. That’s alright; I’ll pick up a few words here and there and make it up somehow. It’s not a huge problem if I don’t – the daily goal is just something to keep me going!

Total written today: 588 words.

August total so far: 1608 words.

A couple of days off

Standard

Hi everyone,

I’ve been missing in action again, I know, but I needed a couple of days to sort out some non-writing stuff and give myself a bit of a rest. Today I wrote, er, eight words.

Tomorrow I shall do better – talk to you then!

Easily distracted!

Standard

Hi everyone,

Did I mention we have new kittens? Well, they’re very distracting. Astro, bless him, did try to write a bit for me, but his contribution was gibberish – even compared to my usual output. I edited that out. It’s also been ridiculously hot again, which is not conducive to concentration!

I did write a few words of BH2, though – and I also had a play with some cover design ideas. So the day hasn’t been a complete write-off.

Total written today: 199 words.

August total so far: 1012 words.

Talk to you soon!

A good start?

Standard

Hi, everyone!

Well, it’s day one of the new spreadsheet (technically I started yesterday, but I only wrote 83 words) and I think it’s gone alright. I took a detour to work more on my blurb – I still have no idea what I’m doing, but I have some great friends who’re helping me out with pointers and advice – but I still managed to get 729 words done.

I’d hoped to finish off the POV section I was on, but I didn’t quite manage that. It’s a little disappointing, but in my defence I have spent a large part of the day just trying not to melt! Tomorrow, I shall try again.

Oh – and I wrote a good 200 words of notes on a tangential piece of backstory for a secondary character. Eh, I’ll count that as a win.

Talk to you tomorrow!
