1k-a-day Day 11


The weekend is upon us! WOOT! Make sure to have fun, but don't forget to keep on writing. These are the days to make up for lost words that didn't get written during the week.

Tami's day 10 word count:
1,056
Tami's July word count: 10,912
Overall word count: 4,256 (for Worst Days)
Cups of coffee drank: 2
Music: John Mayer...I haven't listened to him in awhile and I always forget how much I love his music.
Mindset: Today was tough for me. I had left the story at a point where the scene had wrapped up and I didn't know where to take it. I also tried to crank it out before leaving work (which I did...YAY) but it seems like I spent the whole time staring at the word count, waiting to hit 1,000. Some days work, others don't. Tomorrow shouldn't be too hard as I'm in the middle of a conversation and will be able to pick it back up easily.

How'd writing go for you, Tracy? Did you do your usual Friday night movie, pizza and beer last night?

-------------------------------------


Ha! I really am predictable....lol....but instead of renting a DVD, we went our for dinner and a movie last night. Saw Public Enemies - was slow to start, but once it got going...what a shoot'em up flick!


Tracy's day 10 word count: LI: 284, WS: 1076
Tracy's July word count: 15 843
Overall word count: LI now: 36 447, WS now: 15 437
Cups of coffee drank: 4 and with out creme because we ran out. Ick.
Music: True Blood soundtrack
Mindset: I had a hard time writing for Losing It yesterday. I was writing an emotional scene and kept pushing too hard...it got melodramatic, ya know? So I spent most of my time on Witch's Shadow. I hope to return to Losing It today with some distance - here's to making readers feel the emotion - without making my characters sob, weep, gasp, cry. ;)

How's the rest of the 1k-a-day crew holding up?

Today word count = 3,614. I'm just trying to get as much done during the summer as I can. I report back to work on July 29th and then I won't have my days free.

I'd at least like my 1st draft done and then I could just focus on editing and revisions during the school year.

I totally hear ya, Karin - I go back in early August and I can feel the real world closing in. Excellent total today!

Geez, Day 11 already? And, yes Tami, so far - fingers crossed it continues - I have hit at least 1K a day for the month of July. Phew. It's a challenge, not because of the writing, but because I have so, so many other projects in the air right now my time is eaten up real quick during the day. But, so far, so good.

Way to go, Karin! Nice.

Here's my info for Day 11:

Day 11 word count = 1,071
Total July word count = 12,415
