Wordcount Wednesday

Even though the heat makes it unbearable to sit in the spare room (Office sounds too grown up), I have still been able to write this week. Either during my lunch break, waiting for the evening train, in bed, on the sofa and the odd occasion, the desk.

Total : 23,564

I have been too focused on the novel to write any more to a short story in progress. But I have entered three competitions and submitted to some other magazines this week.

Wow, that's more writing than I do in a month! ... I guess that says something about me, though. Ha.

And good luck with the comps. Which ones did you enter?

Hi Sophie

I can't believe how much I have written either. I feel very inspired at the moment and writing every day is liberating.

I entered a comp related to Latitude festival (prize is to read at the festival), The Bridport but so many people enter it and also the Guardian one too :)

(previous comment deleted because of typo...)

Is that 23,564 words in a week or 23,564 so far with your novel?

Whichever way, it's a handsome word count, and many more words than I have on one project.

Keep riding that wave of inspiration for as long as it's here!

Good luck in all the comps, too.

Hi Teresa

Its the word count overall - I'm not sure if I am capable to write 23k in a week would have to give up work and get myself a helper to make my dinners and washing. lol.
