Chapter 51 is done.

3,002 words, to be exact.

I'm so exhilarated by my output lately, I could cry.

I hope to finish Chapter 52 tonight.

Doing Chapter 50 now.  Hoping to finish it tonight.


Chapter 50 done.

372 words.

By God, this feels good.

I hope to finish Chapter 51 tonight.

Week Ending Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Let's see...

--An honest-to-God letter sent out today to someone I don't frequently communicate with, but who's been an important influence upon me.  My sixth-grade teacher, if you can believe it.  I'm still at least minorly-acquainted with my sixth-grade teacher, my tenth-grade homeroom teacher, my eleventh-grade writing teacher, and my twelfth-grade Spanish teacher.  What can I say?  Teachers rock!

--Query letters, chapter fragments and small pieces of essays and poems.

--All of this since just yesterday, because a major project was due for work Friday, and it took up my week.  But now I'm on vacation, so stand back!!!

I'll estimate...about 1,500 words.  This will at least quadruple for next Sunday.

Week Ending Sunday, April 12, 2015

Work this week had to mostly intrude...

With the words from earlier this week, and the last couple of days, I'll estimate at about 2,500 words, same as last week.

But the work is good and the end of my novel-in-progress is in sight.

And I go on vacation this Friday evening.

The goal is to finish this novel manuscript by the end of this upcoming vacation.

I believe I can do it.

Week Ending Sunday April 5, 2015

With Wednesday's production and bits throughout the week, I'll approximate my total word count as 2,500 for the week.

Not great, but minorly productive, and better than last week.  Baby steps.

I've also borrowed the weekly schedule from The Productive Writer by Sage Cohen.  I like how the upcoming week is scheduled out.  Not set in stone, but organized.

Hope everyone had a nice holiday and long weekend.

Spent about three hours re-writing, editing, and polishing (such as it is) 29 poems I'd written in various guises over the past 17 years.  I wanted to see which ones were good enough to send out.

More than I thought, is the answer.

About 2,456 total words, my word count says.  With all of the writing, re-writing, editing and polishing, I'll say...

Approximately 1,200 words.

And I've got some good poems to send out, too.
