Have a great day everyone! I look forward to seeing the amazing counts for week 1!
Tami's day 6 word count: 2,442
Tami's July word count: 6,521
Overall word count: Lost and Found has been all over the place in word count. Especially today. It was torn down and rebuilt (or the ending was). It's current word count is at 65,256 but I had it down to almost 62,000 something at one point today. Lots of cutting and pasting.
Cups of coffee drank: 2 and a ton of pink lemonade. Trying to drink it before it goes bad in our non-existent fridge. Man I can't wait until the new one is here on Wednesday!
Music: Eels Electric Shock Blues album on repeat for about 7 hours today.
Mindset: Today I had no choice but to dive in on cuts/edits/revisions. These were based on my husband's notes from this weekend. He finished Lost and Found and I want to finish it early this week. I felt like I was putting together a 1,000 piece puzzle but couldn't see all the pieces at the same time. I think I finally have it set. Writing new stuff for this book is easy. I've been working on it for over a year now and the character's voices just speak to me. I just need to write a few quick scenes and then read the ending over to make sure it all fits in place. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
How'd it go up in your neck of the woods, Tracy?

Mindset/Excuse: We decided to do a trip into the city for some power shopping, then dinner with my sister and her hubbie - and I didn't write a blessed thing. We should be back home later this afternoon though and I HOPE I can make up for lost time. I did purchase a few YA titles that look promising: Ghost Girl (adore the presentation and was surprised to be hooked when I read the first page, Hottie (love the trailer for this - and while the cover is a bit hoaky - I decided to give it a shot) and Audrey, Wait. (Tami, you read Audrey, Wait - right?)
Okay, people - we've got to keep this thing going. Good luck today!
