Wordcount Wednesday

Word count Wednesday is back from holiday with a few extras - a chest, ear and throat infection, again.

The writing has not stopped. I did quite a lot on holiday. I finished chapter 10a, started 11a and also finished a short story. I am nearly half way with the novel and that means it will be time to start planning the alternative chapters - I had some ideas when I first started and I have been reading over them today. I also found a page from my notebook with the first line. October 2008. At the time I did not realise it would lead to a novel. I was still mourning over another novel attempt. I remember taking things slowly and I did not finish chapter one until mid January. Four thousand words in three months. But things are moving faster. Because I had a holiday last week - I have written over eight thousand in two weeks.

Overall writing count - 46,809.

Over the next week I hope to finish chapter 11a. Plan the final chapter, 12a and decide now the novel will end for this character.

Sounds really good, Jessica. Hope you feel better soon.

How productive you were on holiday, too - do you think you were inspired by the festival, being around all the creativity and book-stuff?

Thanks Teresa :)

I think being away from the pressures of work and housey things was great.

How is your writing coming along?
