Writing Progress September 11 - 17, 2017

September 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 114,915
  • Today’s word count: 706
  • Thoughts: I wrote in bits and pieces today. It was different and a little bit strange, but it got the job done.
  • 557 more words

100 Follows: Thank You.

I am astounded that I have reached this number of followers in such a short amount of time. This might seem small in the eyes of bigger brands or names, but not long ago I was doubtful of reaching fifty within a few months. 189 more words


Chapter 5 complete!

Today I added another 2,350 words to my book, finishing chapter 5 and getting well into chapter 6!  A lot of that was someone telling a story about the history of the world, which I had already created, but I had to edit it a bit to be more in that characters voice.

I now have over 15,000 words!


Well into chapter 5!

I added another 2,200 words to my book today! (I’ve only had about an hour of writing time!) I’m continuing on with the ‘make it up as I go’ plan until my hero reaches the next city. 26 more words


SCBWI WWR 9/2017

Me–prepping for the upcoming SCBWI Working Writer’s Retreat:

Fortunately I got in, thanks to iphone alerts, Alexa/Echo alerts, the wall calendar with a particular date circled so thickly in red it could never become invisible, no matter the million times I pass it in my daily life. 110 more words


Chapter 4 complete!

So before I got back into writing, whenever I thought about my book I usually thought about the beginning – what happens to my hero while he is still in his home town.  254 more words
