Thursday 9 March 2006


I'm very happy to say that so far this week I've been managing just above my 4k target per day. And if I can keep this pace up, I'll have another first draft done by the end of this month. So what you guys think? Will I make it? Well, I sure as hell am going to try because this story really wants to get out.

Yesterday I introduced two new characters who happen to he the H and h for one of my other novel ideas. I'm really enjoying them because they're very different to the two I'm currently working on and hold a very strange job. I reckon after I'm done with them in this novel, they'll be ready for their own.

Here's today's progress bar:

( ####============= )
18,066 / 80,000 : 22.6%

This means I'm only 1,934 words away from my weekly target. And with the stuff stirring inside my brain and where I left off, I know I'll definitely get more than that done. It's so cool, things are starting to get complicated. While other things are getting worked out -- like the two things that happened to pop into my head while doing some yoga yesterday! :)

So what's everyone been up to?

Asides from the writing I really haven't been doing much else but laundry, some cleaning, walking, working out, taking and picking my daughter up from school, helping her learn more words, hanging out with hubby, reading Moon Called, dealing with another pathetic mobile phone company and sleeping. He. He.

Okay, Y, you are officially my word-count inspiration. :)

Not been up to much, just writing and trying to finsh this puppy by the end of the month. Haven't even played my Everquest game at all this week, which means I'm being disciplined for once!

Hi Yolanda, good luck with the writing.

Hey, just read through your movie list (Star Wars movies, The Lost Boys, Indiana Jones movies, The Wedding Singer, The Crow, and Army of Darkness). I've seen all of those except "Army of Darkness." I liked them all except for the last three "Star Wars" movies made (parts 1, 2 and 3). I got Bruce Campbell's autograph and James O' Barr's too.

LOL Kelly!


It's wonderful that you're so wrapped up in the current WIP that you're totally disciplined! ;)

Good luck on getting it done by the end of the month. We should cheer each other on, since I'm also trying to get it done by then. Hey, you should join the WAWK at the message board!

PS. That's the Katie MacAlister message board. ;)

THANKS Jim! Always a pleasure to have you drop by.

Can I ask you what/why you didn't like the latest (Ep I, II, III) Star Wars movies? Was there a particular reason?

Oh, and you have to check out Army of Darkness. Sure, they've released about a thousand different versions on DVD, but it's a blast. Really funny. Bruce Campbell's a legend - honestly, he kicks major butt.

Bruce Campbell ROCKS!! "Gimme some sugar, Baby." Hehehehe I'm glad you're keep in your word count Y! I am chasing my tail through a few different stories right now. It's exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. I love writing!! Especially the new bitch Sariah. :) She's got a murderous scene over in the SJ blog... *wink*
