1k-a-day Day 5


I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th and for those of you outside of the US, a great Saturday!

Tomorrow I will post a list of books available to the winner(s) of week one. Be sure to check back later today!

Tami's day 4 word count:
1,022
Tami's July word count: 4,079
Overall word count: I'm all over the place this 1k-a-day. Today I had a great idea and had to start it, so for that WIP, I'm 1,022 words in. I'll have to decide which I want to focus on, the new one (which doesn't even have a working title right now) or Parlor.
Cups of coffee drank: 1 cup of coffee, a large kiwi and watermelon shaved ice, white wine with dinner and a little bit of almond champagne for dessert. MMmmm
Music: Just the sound of fireworks and my husband watching the Twilight Zone marathon on TV.
Mindset: Like I said above, I started something new. It came to me today, part of it is actually something that happened to me and I think I'm now far enough from the situation that I can write about it. The words flew out of me, landing on the page with purity. Awesome, no other word to describe it. The story is writing itself.

Did you get a great day of writing in, Trace?

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


A new WIP, Tami? Wowza, you're on fire, girl. ;) I still love Parlor's concept though, so you gotta finish that one at some point. Okay, here's how yesterday went down for me:

Tracy's day 4 word count: LI: 1027, WS: 1003
Tracy's July word count: 8967
Overall word count: LI now at 34 762, WS now at 11 272
Cups of coffee drank: I tell you I was jittery I drank so much coffee - gotta love that shaky, queazy feeling at about 9 pm, eh? Ah...java-the-gut... my innards may not love you, but I do.
Music: Yesterday I went old school, listened to The Who, Queen, The Jackson 5, The Beatles and many more rock icons.
Mindset: Like the music I listened to, the writing I did alternated between happy little beats to whoa, where'd that psychedelic stuff come from? I'm guessing there will be lots to hack from Day 4's quota, but meet it I did. ;) As a reward, I relaxed in the yard with my two crazy labs and let them splash around in their plastic kiddy pool.

We're almost into week two, my friends! We can do this. Remember, carpal tunnel only hurts if you cry.
