MGBIAW Challenge -- Day #9

Today is grey, and cold, and wet and nasty. At lunch I sat inside by the fireplace instead of out of the patio. I didn't get as much written as I wanted...no lunchtime chapter today. Sigh.

My MC is getting into trouble though. But goody-goody MC's aren't nearly as much fun, lol.

How much writing did you get done today?

I worked diligently today during writing time, except I don't know my starting word count :( Somewhere around 1100 for the day. My ms has grown by another chapter and a half and I *think* I may only have two left to write.

Have a good rest of the day everyone.

I didn't write anything again yesterday - no excuse. I was lazy and watched AWFUL TV all night for no apparent reason. I stayed up late to get at least 1000 words tonight - 1016 to be exact. But so far, I've almost doubled my word count in the last week, which is pretty great for me. :) I'm at about 7500 words, which isn't near the 30K I was supposed to be at, but it's something!

Only 300 words today. :( Oh well...there is always tomorrow.

I was amazed yesterday. I didn't write Monday and was determined to make it up yesterday. However, I wasn't able to start until 9 PM last night and was so sure I wouldn't meet my 1500 word goal. But while I was out with my daughters earlier, I told them that one of my characters had gone down to the cellar but I didn't know why. They helped me figure that out--and many other questions I had about the skeleton of my story. So when I sat down to write, the character in the current scene started talking, and she kept talking with my main character, until I'd written over 1500 words. That was one of the only times that had ever happened to me. Does that happen often to any of you? Anyway, long-winded check-in, but I'm so excited to finish my June goal today--and then set a July goal that will finish this first draft. Cheers, everyone!

Marilyn, I LOVE that when that happens! Not often enough for me, but sometimes certainly.

I'm a bit behind this week, so looking forward to that 7/7 extension. My brain is being absorbed by my new job and my MC keeps wanting to go to sleep (or so I keep telling myself).
