Clarion Write-a-thon Day 15

Today’s word count: 3888Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 35314 So much for just planning to write like 500 words and go to bed. I’m sleepy, and I have a headache. But instead, I just kept going and going. I would say that this section is probably the worst writing I’ve done so far. It’s going to ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 14

Today’s word count: 1455Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 31426 Day 14 and still going strong! (Please, feel free to reward my persistence with a pledge at the Write-a-thon page! :D) I didn’t quite make my word count today, though that’s more because I really need to go to bed soon (so I can wake up in ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 13

Today’s word count: 2746Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 29971 Had a rough time getting going today, but I think it worked out alright. After kung fu in the heat and humidity, my brain felt pretty melted. Still, good progress, even if I’m not really happy with much of my prose. I’m still moving forward and getting ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 12

Today’s word count: 3410Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 27225 Got on another roll tonight. I’m very excited about the scenes I’ve been writing, which is funny since they aren’t really even in my outline. But I like this direction the story is taking. Hopefully it keeps coming this easy, though I think I may be in ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 11

Today’s word count: 3457Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 23815 What can I say… I was on a roll tonight. Must be the two helpful kitties. And the full-size keyboard. Favorite sentence I’ve written today: When she’d finished reading the pamphlet, just hungry for the words, she tore it up and started playing games with the disassembled ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 10

Today’s word count: 1235Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 20358 Short chunk, since I need to go to bed… and since it was a scene that had me feeling completely creeped out and gross and I just don’t want to write any more tonight. Ew ew ew. Favorite sentence I’ve written today: But after three years, Hob ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 9

Today’s word count: 2388Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 19123 This novel is turning out different from the other ones I’ve written because now I’m starting to use multiple characters to tell the story. It’s fun, but also a little scary. Life is easier when you only have to worry about one viewpoint, I think. Favorite sentence ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 8

Today’s word count: 967Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 16735 Another day of almost not writing, but this on was worse since I didn’t even start until after two. Not that I’m complaining, since the late hour is because I was hanging out with Michelle and Julie. Really, I only wanted to get in 500 words just ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 7

Today’s word count: 2183Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 15768 I almost didn’t write today. I was completely exhausted after sleeping less than three hours last night, and then of course I needed to catch up with my friends. Michelle let me catch a three hour nap on the couch in the afternoon, though, and that carried ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 6

Today’s word count: 2190Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 13585 I love it when my story jumps off the outline, when the characters decide that they’re going to do something completely different. Particularly when I realize that it makes a lot more sense this way. Would have loved to keep writing longer, but as it is, I ...
