4,678 Words

Dragging Along…

 

Every time I write, I post on here right after. If this happens in the morning, then I usually say in my post that I’m going to try to get some more writing done later on that night. I never do that. Yesterday, I actually did.

I wrote a total of 4,678 words today, but about 800 words of that if from last night. 800 is better than nothing. Plus, I made up for it this morning.

I still have about 45 minutes before I have to get to class, so I could actually write a little bit more, but I’m beginning to make typo after typo…I just wrote for almost two hours, which is pretty good.

I don’t think that I’m going to get any more writing done tonight. I’m probably going to be dead tired by the time I get home from work. Today is my long day at school and then I have work right after, so it does wonders to my body…

Even though I won’t be using this time to write, I am certainly going to use this time to read. I have about 100 pages left in Beautiful Creatures. I did not bring it because then I knew that I wasn’t going to write at all. I have my boyfriend’s Kindle hooked up to my iPod and there’s a book called Eye of the Wizard that he wanted me to read. I’m just about halfway through that, so that’s what I’ll be doing while I wait for class to start.

As I said before, I am not going to change the pages read thing because I will confuse myself. I am changing the words written…even though I confuse myself with that as well, but I don’t think that I have screwed up yet. If I did, maybe I’ll make up for it because I will hopefully write over 365,000 words by the end of the year…even though I am currently behind. 😉

Busy-ness

This, That, And The Other…

 

Well, it has been almost (ish) a month since I have posted on here. I remember that my last post I mentioned that I was going to write all weekend (because we had that blizzard) and that I would post again right after the weekend. That went well, didn’t it?

Actually, it did. I wrote during the weekend. I didn’t write as much as I wanted to do and I certainly didn’t write as much as I had the time for, but something is better than nothing, right?  I have been writing off and on since then. I’m working on a new novel. Yes, another new novel. I’m not working on The Blank Page anymore. Since I lost my flash drive, I haven’t really been encouraged to write anything that I had already started.

This novel is called Take Over. I thought of the idea while I was at work and then forgot about it. Then while I was in the shower a couple of days later, I thought of it again and couldn’t stop thinking about it. I came up with ideas and characters and everything. It was a fun shower.

I’ll post the summary to this novel at a later time, but the basic of it is that a group of high school students plan take over the school. Not in a mean, bad way, but only because they’re seniors and they want to leave the school as “legends.” They don’t mean anything bad by it, but it soon gets a little out of hand and it’s a riot…teachers versus students. This is what I have been writing lately and it’s coming along quite nicely. I’ll get into more details about the characters and such later, as well.

I decided to switch up my New Year’s Resolution a bit. I decided that I’m going to try to write at least 1,000 words a day. So I should have about 365,000 words by the end of the year. So by the end of February I should have about 59,000 or something like that. Since I wrote a lot of The Blank Page, I’m going to include that word count because I did write it during 2013. So that, (plus what I have for Take Over so far) equals to 27,802 words. A bit behind, yes, but I think I can do it because I don’t usually end up writing just 1,000 words at a time.

I have 12,663 words for Take Over and 21 pages. Hopefully it keeps up going at the rate it’s going. 😉
