Writing Update

This is my first official Friday Writing Update and my first official post following my new schedule!

I didn't get as much done this week as I would have liked because of my trip next week and having to work lots at the day job. That and I've been trying to make an effort on my blog and visiting every one else's. However, I'm about 25% done with the word count (but those words will turn into about 40% when I flesh out the description. I'm a skipper, what can I say.)

As of today I am at approx 23k words. I wrote 700 words this week.

On the plus side, the day job got two large invoices in this past week so they have money now and I can be paid my past-due paychecks. Hopefully no more will bounce. This is why my creative juices have been sucked dry. But now that excuse is gone.

6 tidbits:

love the new heading design!

Past-due checks are not cool.

You only did 700 words, but you are 700 closer to the finish. I think that's a good thing. Keep with it, there is no time limit. :)

I love your new site design! Wow, Lauren!

I hope you get paid, quickly! You are patient!

I LOVE your blog title. I remember once having a very vivid dream of giving birth, and then a book came out! Kinda gross, but awesome!

I'm a skipper as well. If you read through my early drafts, they're riddled with comments like "describe aunt" or "make funnier." I always wind up gaining more words with each edit!

Lauren said...

@lynn, @spy--Thanks for the comments on the new design. I think I have a couple other ideas that I will implement soon.

@jill- thanks for the complement on the title. Your description of your dream made me laugh. :)

@strugglingwriter, @spy--I hope I get paid soon too, I'm just glad that I had the reserves to afford this.

@rachel- well, at least I know that i am not the only one who writes those kids of notes :)
