1k-a-day Day 4

Happy 4th of July!!!! Hope everyone who celebrates has a fun and safe day!

Tami's day 3 word count:
Tami's July word count: 3,057
Overall word count: This is hard to calculate because today was a revisions day, so I didn't work on my WIP.
Cups of coffee drank: 0 (and had a headache because of it)
Music: Nothing but the sound of the bullfrogs outside of my bedroom window.
Mindset: Today I had fun...and then I didn't. This morning I was awoken by a wood chipper and that pretty much set the tone. We had fun at the beach, except there were about 1,000 people and it was only 70 degrees. I planned to come home, relax and write. Instead we came home to a broken fridge (as in not cold at all) and most everything gone spoiled. I will say, we knew something was up with it, but didn't have a clue it was this close to dying. The only thing we can hope for at this point is a HUGE 4th of July sale on kitchen appliances and really really fast delivery. :) After the fridge fiasco, we needed a laugh so we watched National Lampoon's Vacation. Then I had some time to do revisions while my husband read the end of Lost and Found (and hopefully didn't have too many notes).

Tracy, let's hope you had a less hectic day. How'd you do on day 3?


Tracy's day 3 word count: LI - 1123, WS - 974
Tracy's July word count: 6937
Overall word count: LI now at 33 735, WS now at 10 269
Cups of coffee drank: At least a pot of coffee and several cups of chai tea
Music: A lot of angst filled alternative rock - I'm surprised I didn't slit my wrists.
Mindset: Fiercely determined to do anything but WRITE. I was distracted by my dogs, the rain, the sunshine, the return of the rain, vacuuming the carpets, searching for songs on iTunes. Whoa - I was all over the place yesterday, but managed to keep my ass in my chair long enough to meet my 2k goal. Whew - here's to less hyperactivity today!

Enjoy the weekend, kids, but don't forget to write.

I forgot to say sorry for your fridge loss, Tami - I hope you get a replacement licky split! I don't know what I'd do without ice cream this month. ;0

HA! Thanks Tracy! The freezer is now cold enough to be the fridge and the fridge is warmer than the outside air (at night). LOL Sad when stuff like this breaks. :( Maybe we'll become raw food people for a few days. We are now doing what Joey did on Friends. Trying to find ways to eat everything that isn't spoiled yet. :)

Okay, my laptop was off all by its lonesome without me :( I wrote 571 words yesterday. Way short. I'm starting today now at 6pm after a successful book signing.

It was my first ever and I sold 15 books which is apparently good for our area. Borders was cool and we brought in lots of money for them which makes us a big draw.

I'm determined to get somewhere today. One of the reasons my word count so low for day three is I'm stuck on all three stories. The next scenes are bugging me.

On my new story I can't make up my mind where I'm going so I can't seem to get a flow...

Here I go again. Wish me luck

I'm getting a late start as well. I'm going to work until I can't stay awake. I'm hoping to keep up my momentum. I'll report back later with my word count for today as well as the word count for July.

Great work guys! So what if you have a low word count day - tomorrow is always a fresh start....and you're still up a few hundred words. ;)
