Adding a Word Meter
Quote of the Day:
If the sea were ink / For the words of my Lord, / the sea would be spent before the Words of my Lord are spent.
–Qurâ€™an (from Bartleby.Com)
Gaw, Iâ€™m tired. I donâ€™ t know why. Could it be I have interrupted sleep at 2 am every morning? Last night it was DS, hollering that he needed to go potty. I stumbled out of bed and up the stairs to help him get to the bathroom. He actually went! Thank goodness heâ€™s finally getting this potty thing down. Weâ€™ve still got some work to do, but weâ€™re very close to getting over this major parenting hurdle.
I was going to write last night, really I was. Instead I tinkered on the computer all night. I cleared out my email, read a blog or two, and then posted in my own again (see Best Mistakes below). Afterwards, I headed downstairs to read more of Characters & Viewpoint, but fell asleep shortly after starting. Iâ€™m nearly done with the book and Iâ€™d like to finish it up before moving on to the fiction novel I have waiting on me.
I added a word meter to the side of the blog for my current WIP. I wanted something I could see every day that will remind me to write every day. My target word count is 50,000. I figure itâ€™s a good start. My target finish date is July 31. That gives me almost two months to get it written. This will be just the bare bones of the novel. Then I can start getting it out for critique and flesh everything out that I missed.
Iâ€™m so excited about this novel, I can hardly stand it.
Wrote one issue of the romance serial yesterday and I need to get one issue of the adventure done today. I need to get them both turned in by this afternoon. Thatâ€™s my goal on the serial. I should have written one issue each yesterday but I got distracted with the new WIP.
Welp, just got handed an org chart to draw so I guess I best go get that done. And then I gotta figure out how to frame this award the company received. Iâ€™m going to hurry and get it all done so I can concentrate on my writing. *grin*
