Yeah, tomorrow is my day to post in the blog chain, so I can't do a WiP Wednesday. Lame, I know. But I don't want to miss it.
This week it's pretty short. I recently had one of those light-bulb-above-the-head moments on a novel I wrote way last year. So I spent the weekend completely ignoring my current WiP and editing that novel.
But I'm refocused now. Or as refocused as I can get. This week's progress report is stats on the current WiP I've tentatively titled Living Assistants. It's a play on words...get it? I love it. But I try not to get too attached to my words, cuz I end up killing most of them.
Anyway, onto the stats!
Notebooks filled: 1.5 + several pages in a NOTES notebook for things I have to go back and add in on the second draft. Layers, baby. Layers.
Words written: this is a guesstimate from when I typed up my writing during NaNo. Five front and back pages was about 1000 words. So maybe 27,000? This scares me a lot. Because I'm almost to the end of this novel. Luckily it's a middle grade, so it might not need to be much longer. My goal was about 40 K. We'll see when I type this bad boy up.
Goal for having this rough draft done: April.
Blue pens emptied: 3
Black pens emptied: 1
Color of pen I like best: blue
Point preferred: medium (none of this fine stuff)
Hours of sleep lost due to writing: this week? Maybe 6
Number of times playlist has repeated: unknown
Number of times the bad guy has shifted: 3
Heroes episodes waiting on the DVR: 2, oops 3 (from last night)
Hours spent on distractions: countless
So the writing goes on. How are you doing on your WiP? Wait! Don't post until tomorrow.
