What I'm writing?
Book: The Meteorological Thaumaturgist

Progress Notes: I tend to jump around a lot on projects. Luckily I've got a clear progression in mind so although the details of the scenes aren't laid out, the framework to create the details is all there.

What I'm reading?
Book: Across the East River Bridge by Kate McMurray
1K Completed: Yes!
Book Note: More ghostly goings-on ensue.

What I'm writing?
Book: Nash Bk 1
Today's total word count: 1034

What I'm reading?
Book: Sex, Straight Up by Kathleen O'Reilly
Chapters read today: 6

Notes: To be honest, I gave up on this challenge because I was doing so poorly. But then I decided that I needed the accountability of reporting in, and that I should get back to it. So even if I don't make the 1K daily, I'm at least going to attempt it.

Book: Emma Whitewood (working title)
Today's total word count: 1019 words

Book: The Dark Lady
2 Chapters Completed: Yes
Today's Book Note: Hero is trying to get the heroine to safety, the rift between them gets bigger as the story has been proceeding.

I think I am a pantser at heart. I tried to use post it notes of different colors trying to plot out my entire story. I basically got overwhelmed with trying to figure out which box to put things in and managing the post it notes. I gave up and decided to go back to what I've been doing which is creating new scenes as I go along.

I read some notes for some classes as well. So overall, I made progress.

I don’t normally work on the weekend, but since I had to catch up a little after being sick all week, I managed to get a few pages written as well. Yay!

Great on the word count! Sorry you dropped out of the challenge. Wish you had stayed. Glad you're back, though! :-)


You made GREAT progress today! Double WOOT WOOT on the word count. Fantastic!


Well, I always say that I'm not going to work on the weekend but then this weekend--hubby had to work--so here I am. Edits to be done. Ya know? Hope you're feeling better!
