Current Word Count Stats

Today: [postwc] | Month: [postmonthwc] | Year: [postyearwc]


Like so many days off, this one was full of other things to do. We got to take our son to play with other kids, to visit a State Park and enjoy a beautiful day together.

Even though I didn’t get to finish my word count for the day before we left, it was worth it. He had a lot of fun (except for when it was time to leave). By the time we got back the afternoon was passing and I still needed to get my writing done. First, I needed to do something that I’d been putting off.


I’ve been putting it off. Not because I have any issues with doing my taxes. I had the documents I needed and all of that. It’s simply that it hadn’t risen quite to the top of the priority list. Usually I’m focused on getting my writing or publishing tasks done instead. Given the date, though, I really couldn’t put it off any longer. That ended up taking up the rest of the afternoon.

Which meant getting back to writing this evening to meet my word count for the day. The new novel is coming along well, I’m really enjoying it.

    1. That’s great! Have fun with it, I enjoy having a novel to work on. It does make it easier to get started each day knowing what I’m going to work on.
